quiannamariephotography | Quianna Marie Photography | There's something about the Olympics that brings on the feels. It amazes me that for just about two weeks the entire world comes together. Language barriers have no walls and for just a bit, we are inspired by the heart, soul and drive behind these athletes representing our homeland and beyond.

quiannamariephotography | Quianna Marie Photography | What does creating a legacy even mean? I guess it's different for everyone. Some chase dollars, some lust for fame, some are simply proud of their healthy and happy family.
-
Me? I want a legacy that's much BIGGER than framed memories in home galleries. Extended further than my extended family and the kind of legacy that lasts for generations.
-
I'm inspired by pipe dreams. I'm motivated by underdog stories. I'm in love with making others love themselves enough to just go for it!
-
Photography has been a tool to connect with others on levels I never even imagined. It's brought me on unforgettable adventures and taught so many life lessons. I literally make it my life's purpose to help others, share my faith and be right there front in center (with my camera!) for hundreds of families most treasured moments.
-
But ya know what!? I'm only one person! Imagine having a place to go to where you feel like you belong at the very first visit. A safe place to celebrate and create lasting memories with your favorite people. That's the type of legacy I want and I can't wait to turn a hillside into the venue of our dreams.
-
Tell me love, what's your legacy dream? I wanna hear all about it to cheer you on!! #quiannamariewedding #weddingvenuegoals #dirtroadtovenue Instagram Photos | videos | post

quiannamariephotography | Quianna Marie Photography | Today was one of those days... filled with everything! A photo shoot, a day drink, raviolis, gelato with Mama and ended the night with the biggest smile ever.
Looking forward to tomorrow and the rest of the week to get back to the grind! I'm gunna pull up a seat at my dining room table, sip coffee from a favorite mug and buckle down!
The best part about this feeling is that I'm still me, I just wanna strive for more, reach for those BIGGER dreams and make it happen with a BRIGHTER smile!

When you ask him what he wants for dinner and says, "Let's go get tacos and margaritas." 🙌🏼 😂 - Tell me love, what's your favorite go to HAPPY Sunday night meal!? I'm a big fan of grilling tritip and veggies on Sunday, but tacos are always a good idea! - Still obsessing over Paige + Dan's sweet engagement session!! Can't wait for their wedding this August in Half Moon Bay! ❤️

quiannamariephotography | Quianna Marie Photography | What's the BEST gift you could give yourself on your wedding day?? ✨TIME✨
-
Time to sip champagne and eat a big turkey sandwich.
🍾
Time to grab those sweet getting ready shots with your favorite girls.
👯👯
Time to soak up the fact that THIS is your wedding day and YOU ARE THE BRIDE!
👰🏻
Time to have those tear jerker moments with each of your parents, before you even head to the first look.
💕
Time to share some extra laughs and grab those dreamy #pinterestinspired bridesmaids and wedding party shots.
😍
Time to walk, not run to the chapel!
💒
Time, during your ceremony to take a moment and just breathe. Take some time to scan the church or your entire guest list under the oak tree and just burn that feeling into your mind.
🙏🏼
You only have this ONE day. Live it. Breathe it in and make sure you work with your photographer, coordinator, family and wedding party to make time for those photos! Because let's be real, what I really mean by time, is TIME FOR PHOTOS!
-
So, when your photographer suggests full hair and make up for all of your girls to be done 3+ hours before your ceremony... this is why. Your wedding day shouldn't be a blurred rush, it should have room for pauses and sighs. The good kind. #psaforbrides #quiannamariewedding Instagram Photos | videos | post

Whether it was a special heirloom detail, a nice picture of just you and your sister (BEFORE the dark reception) or not one photo of your favorite uncle?
-
Not looking for names here... just curious if anything was overlooked that you wish you could go back in time to snap!?
