A Simple Solution to Protect Your Eyes in 2019 | Pixel Eyewear | Tennessee and Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer

Good morning darling friends!

The sun is shining and I am currently making my to do list for today! I’ve got a question for you! Ever notice the longer you spend staring at your computer at work answering emails, writing proposals, working on reports or scrolling through Instagram that your eyes feel heavy or tired? Do you ever get subtle headaches or fatigue and wonder why you feel so tired?! Let me guess, you probably thought you slept well last night. Well, it is proven that we as a culture spend more time looking at screens than ever before. I certainly love scrolling through my Instagram - haha! At twenty-nine years old though, feeling fatigued and my eyes being tired is not on my agenda. This year, one of my goals is to be better about monitoring my screen time and being healthier — like being more conscious of protecting my eyes!

If eye and/or mental fatigue and mild headaches sounds familiar, I have some good news for you! Pixel Eyewear offers fashionable, non-prescription glasses for both men and women that are designed to help reduce and protect from blue light. These eyeglasses help reduce fatigue and tiredness (strain) in your eyes allowing you to be more efficient and protect your eyes! These glasses are great to wear at work, while you’re on your phone, laying in bed scrolling through Instagram or even watching tv. I will note that I personally have prescription eye-glasses because of a lazy eye. Several times over the last few weeks, I have found myself in situations where I did not have my prescription glasses with me. Luckily, I did have my pair of Pixel Eyeglasses in my bag and they were a huge help, reducing my eye fatigue and keeping me focused and efficient!

As wedding & fashion photographer, a lot of screen time is inevitable, so if there is a way to help protect my eyes, you better believe I am going to take it! My eyes are incredibly vital for me to continue doing what I love to do! :)

I am excited — Pixel Eyewear and I decided it would be fun to host a giveaway! Here’s how to enter:

An Intimate, Sophisticated End of Summer Garden Wedding at Moss Mountain Farm | Acacia and Nick | Tennessee and Pennsylvania Wedding Photographer

Acacia-Nick-Moss-Mountain-Summer-Wedding-Mary-Kate-Steele-Photography

Last year I had the privilege of touring Moss Mountain Farm while shooting for my sweet friend Katherine of Bella Baxter. I also got to meet one of the owners of the gorgeous farm, James. Moss Mountain Farm is absolutely stunning in every single way. Every time I’ve gotten to shoot there, all my creative juices overflow with inspiration.

I was over the moon excited when James reached out to me in the late summer to ask if I would be interested in shooting a very intimate wedding at Moss Mountain. Of course I said, yes! I have really grown fond of small weddings. Acacia and Nick had a gorgeous, minimalistic and sophisticated wedding and ceremony, perfected with delicious fruits, vegetables, cheeses and fine wine at the reception — all while surrounded by their closest families and friends. They could not have asked for a more perfect day and it was a joy to capture it for them. :)
