who to follow on instagram

After I wrote that post on social media tips a while back (here) I realized how little I was utilizing Instagram. Since then, I’ve been trying to post more frequently, take better photos, and involve myself in the community more. The best side effect of upping my efforts on that social media platform has been finding new and inspiring people to follow.

Below is a list of my top 5 (in no particular order) people to follow on Instagram. These are the ladies who continually take stunning images of inspiring things!

1. @munsterrose

People who use negative space well have a special place in my heart and Jackie of Munster Rose is one of the best. Her background in interior design and store display styling, plus her current role as the creative force behind this floral design & styling company makes her an absolute ‘must-follow’ in my book.

2. @heygorgevents 

I almost left Rhiannon of Hey Gorgeous Events off of this list because I assumed that everyone follows her (because everyone should!) but then I realized how unfair that would be because she’s definitely one of my favorite instagrammers. Her images are always colorful, joyous, and proof that wedding planners have the most amazing jobs in the world!

3. @katie_decker

Ever since featuring Katie here on the blog I’ve fallen in love with her work. Not only is she a photographer, but she is launching a new hand-lettering business called Signora e Mare soon and her Instagram feed is always chock full of organic beauty.

4. @maemaepaperie

If you’re a paper lover then go follow Megan of Mae Mae Paperie right now. Her quirky, stylish, and colorful designs are always a joy to see plus her vibrant personality and creativity shines right through each of her images.

5. @amlwarner

I’ve got another fabulous and inspirational designer for all my paper fans out there – Abigail of Abigail Warner Designs. Her playful designs and pastel infused Instagram feed are always amazing plus she designs paper goods for brides, celebrities, and even royalty!
