I'm so very excited to have the lovely and beautiful Bridget from Deer Circus in this series today! I am obsessed with her Instagram feed and stalk her on there constantly. She is a talented photographer and it shows in all her work. I would describe her feed as charming, dreamy, and purely lovely. Thanks for being here Bridget!
Tell us a little bit about yourself.
My name is Bridget, and I'm a wedding photographer living in the great state of Colorado with my husband, Robbie- who is also my high school sweetheart. I love him lots. Some other things I love: books (huge bookworm over here), film photography, woodland creatures, braids, a fresh notebook, road-trips, museums, early bird living, mountain drives, thunderstorms, wearing floral crowns for no reason, and writing to my pen pal (who I met on Instagram! @floralmountians - she has the loveliest feed).
What inspires your creative photos?
In many ways, I think my love of photography is tied to my love of the written word. As a child, I wrote about everything- and often used photographs to inspire me. I thought deeply about the form. This rose- is it a sonnet, or an essay? I carry that expressionistic quality into photo taking. At my core, I am a sensitive soul- I'm a peace maker and a comfort seeker, and I like my photos to reflect that. Snippets of authentic life- be that a nature hike, a handhold with my honey, or a teacup I've just thrifted- are so precious to me. At the end of the day, whether it's my blog or my Instagram feed, I just want to scroll through the thing and feel warmth and peacefulness knowing I've taken the time to document the small things.
