Eloise’s Birth Story: Part 2

Everyone thinks pregnancy is nine months (and it is!), but it’s the WHOLE nine months, and 40 weeks is actually the START of month 10! Baby Roman decided to ignore the nine/ten month suggestion and stick to her own timeline. My pregnancy was super easy and low-key, so OF COURSE, birth would be quite the opposite…

Eloise’s Birth Story: Part 1

When Andrew and I planned our New Zealand road trip, we had several bucket list destinations, including Crystal Cathedral, Pancake Rocks, and Queenstown, but what’s a trip to New Zealand without spontaneous adventures? We made room for a little bit of both, and here I’ve complied a list of our favorite adventures on both North and South Island. Every sight was breathtaking and awe-inspiring, and we are soooo ready to head back!!

Our Campervan Trip Through New Zealand: PART TWO

Andrew and I spent ten days exploring both the North and South Islands of New Zealand in the fall, and it was hands-down the most magical ten days EVER!!! We rented a campervan and traveled to national parks, glaciers, hot springs, and just anywhere that was beautiful (which was everywhere!). Campervan life was totally new to us, so I thought I’d share the basics of what campervan life is all about!

Lindsey Roman Photography: Best of 2018

As a wedding photographer, I get asked a lot to share the story of my own wedding. I typically start by saying Andrew and I got married May 23, 2016 on a quaint farm in Weston, Missouri. We went for a whimsical rustic vibe in an orchard and a twinkly lit barn. We had a full wedding party, 6 girls and 6 boys. Our guests size was pretty large. Then I always smile as I tell them this next part…
