Ro here! We currently use a Niko D3100 DSLR camera* for the majority of our photographs. I have had this camera for nearly a decade now, though, so I’m sure it’ll be time for me to get a new one eventually. It still works great though, so as long as it does, we’ll probably keep using it. Every now and then for more casual photographs, we use our phones.
We currently use SiteGround* and would recommend them for people looking for site hosts that are compatible with WordPress’ paid version.
Yes! We use the presets that we create for photographs and we’ve actually shared quite a few of them as freebies and paid on our Etsy shop here.
Ro here! While we both decided that we wanted to blog together, we both blogged at different times. While I, Ro, am more familiar with the newer blogging, which includes promoting, and batch-writing content, he is more familiar with the traditional, “post when you want” kind of blogging. We both honor those styles by not putting pressure on one another to post more or post less. He makes posts when he feels inspired or excited to, so he writes less, whereas it’s easier for me to write more content, so I write more of our posts to keep our blog updated on a regular schedule. He’s always super excited about the posts he writes, though!
Ro here! Other than using our presets, I edit all of our photographs using Adobe Lightroom’s desktop and mobile app.
The story of how we both came to blog is a pretty lengthy one, but we talked a little bit about it here. In short, we both had our own separate blogs that we created as a creative outlet and then decided a couple of years after we got married to create one together. We also shared in the same post, some tips regarding how you can create your own blog!
Perhaps! If we are able to travel abroad, we’ll definitely share how and our experience on the blog. However, much of our current interests have been nurting our travel bug by traveling domestically and as locally as possible. We’re all about experiencing life and travel on a budget!
Yes! While we’re not locals, we’ve been there just about every summer for the last few years and have grown to really enjoy going to our “spots” during our visits there. We love Meg’s Milk Bar for their meat pies, Nitro Bar or The Coffee Grinder (we limit Coffee Grinder to about once a trip because it can be pricey) for coffee and of course Ocean Drive and Cliff Walk for a walk with a view. You can read more of some of our recommendations in this post here
We love visiting New England during the summer, because we have the time to take off and because we can spend time outside. However, it can get pretty hot during late summer, so we like going in early summer as opposed to late. Visiting New England during the fall is incredibly beautiful, too, though!
While we don’t consider ourselves experts, we love sharing what we’ve learned in our experiences with you! One of the ways we travel on a budget is we plan on our trips almost down to the “T” so to speak. Nearly all of our activities and meals are planned, but we do leave room for some spontaneity. We shared a couple of tips in this post about some of the ways we plan and budget for our trips.
Definitely a good playlist or podcast queued up for the ride. Mnay of our road trips have consisted of 90s/early 2000s music, musical soundtracks, and true-crime podcasts. We also like to have water and coffee.
Honestly, we may be biased, but Philly is pretty cool all year ’round. There’s always something to do or somewhere to see. However, if you want to be able to walk around during the trip, we recommend during the spring or fall, when it’s not too hot. It can get pretty hot here during the summer.
It varies, but we both agree that New England is one of our favorite places to travel. It’s such a beautiful place practically all year ’round.
This is tough, but we love Bodhis, Function Coffee Lab, Three Graces Coffee Co, and High Point Cafe. There’s a lot more that we’ve had that we’ve enjoyed, but so far those are our favorites.
If we have time, we love making some of our favorite at-home lattes like our mocha or cookies and cream-flavored lattes. However, during those mornings where we’re rushing and need something quick it’s typically just freshly brewed coffee with our creamer of choice. You can read some of our at home recipes here. We also have a Coffee Guide page that includes everything coffee for our fellow caffeine lovers.
Probably our coffee maker* with the frother attached to make lattes. However, I received a hyper chiller pitcher as a birthday gift from family and it’s made making iced coffee so easy!
