CONEY ISLAND X THEPHOTOPLUG RECAP

A couple of weekends ago I woke up on a Saturday morning to a text from one of my close friends (and very talented photographer) Miguel asking me if I was going to the Coney Island photo meetup happening later that day. I didn't have anything planned, so I said sure! The meetup, hosted by Instagram's @thephotoplug, was lowkey and actually ended up being one of my favorite meetups ever. I had the chance to meet some great people, and also received some great pictures! Keep reading to see all my favorite shots.

This Saturday happened to be especially beautiful as far as weather goes. I am always very happy to be out with my favorite photo squad of Amos, Miguel, and David, and this time was no different! Towards the end of the meetup, I actually took off my shoes and stepped into the water for a little.... and it was FREEZING cold! Still, it was well worth it for the couple of shots you'll see coming up. I'm pretty sure my toes were cold for a good week after haha.

If you're wondering about the outfit, I actually picked up this jumpsuit for my birthday back in August. It has a beautiful print and is a comfortable woven fabric that looks like canvas but is thin and soft. Would you believe it's from Target's Who What Wear collab line?! I think I paid around $20 for this because it was in the clearance section in my local store. The outfit combined with the beach background give these photos a major tropical vibe, which is amazing considering we were just way out in Brooklyn! I posted one of the photos Miguel took of me with the palm tree on my personal IG and a lot of people were asking me if it was photoshopped. It's not, that is a random pole on the beach they "disguised" as a palm tree that just looks crazy in the pics!

Thank you to ThePhotoPlug for hosting this event, and thank you to all the photographers that shot with me and sent me these beautiful pictures afterwards! I'll break up the pictures by photographer, and as always you can click on each IG handle to be brought to their gallery!
