“There is risk, but life itself is risk. For higher life there will be higher risks. You move on a dangerous path. But remember, there is only one error in life, and that is not moving at all; that is just sitting afraid that if you move something may go wrong, so it is better to wait and sit. This is the only error. You will not be in danger, but no growth is possible.”—Osho 😊💕🌈🐻
Oh hey hey! There are quite a few new faces around here so I figured it was time to introduce myself!
I’m Chrissy, an east coast gal with a huge love of travel. I’ve been in the wedding photography biz for 2 years now.
I’m a huge lover of culture and travel any chance I get. I live for adventures, the outdoors, and exploring the most incredible destinations (I’ve also been to Iceland 4 times and joke that I could probably be a tour guide at this point - if you need any recommendations let me know 😂). You can check out some cool pics of me traveling on my other channel @chrissywanders !
I love me some tea and a good true crime doc or podcast. I’m also a huge lover of fitness (shout out to my personal trainer Z.) and am actually working towards participating in my first weight lifting competition this fall. I have PCOS, which makes it hard to lose weight, but doesn’t stop me from going on RAD adventures and killing it in the gym!
I started my photography journey 7 years ago when I got my first DSLR camera while studying abroad in Italy (which was the coolest most amazing time of my life). I spent that trip taking thousands of photos of the gorgeous scenery, but what I really fell in love with was capturing the life and personality of the locals. Top ten experiences of my life was waking up at dawn in Venice and capturing all the locals going about their day before the rush of tourists!
So that’s a bit about me! But if you’re new here or been following for awhile - introduce yourself!! ____________ ***********
@rudysroundtable (📸’d here in Zion National Park), captain of our Charlotte store, knows a thing or two about being uncomfortable in the wild... “We did a bike tour up in the Davidson River area of the Pisgah a couple years ago that was cold 🥶, it was windy 💨, there was rain 🌧 there was snow ❄️,” he recalls with a laugh explained only by the passage of time. “We rode out of the fish hatchery, and on the second night the three of us slept under a tarp. The rain, the wind — man, it was a long night. We were trying to go light, but it was brutal.” So when you walk in his store and ask Rudy to recommend a shelter on a winter backcountry trip, he will [unsurprisingly] not suggest that you use a tarp 🙅♂️.
