About Me

The du Plooy duo: We are crazy-in-love married couple who love to take photos, go on dates, try new food, travel, enjoy nature, eat healthy, go to the movies at 10AM and basically do anything that allows us to be together! We started this blog as a way to document the small things, and the big things so that we can look back and remember the journey! I, Emily, am the author of the blog, and sometimes my handsome husband Jared makes a guest appearances!

I am a middle school teacher. I love Jesus, my husband, my family, flowers, cheesecake, the beach, candles and road trips!

Jared is a jack of all trades. He is an amazing photographer, chef, musician, athlete, friend, and most of all, an incredible husband. I wanna be like him!

We own a wedding photography business called The du Plooys and it is something we feel honored and privileged to be able to do! We LOVE meeting new couples and sharing the journey with them.

This blog doesn’t necessarily have a ONE main purpose, I just enjoy writing and having a place to share my photos. In April of 2013, Jared and I began eating Paleo, and experienced LITERAL life change. Because of the amazing changes we have experienced through our conversion to the Paleo diet, we talk about it OFTEN, and the majority of my posts are centered around our Paleo creations. I hope it brings you joy to read  as it brings me joy to write!

We also love to try new restaurants and products and tell our readers all about them! If you are interested in working together, please email at emilyduplooy1@gmail.com

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. I just read one of your Paleo (sp?) posts and loved it! I wanna come back to read more older posts, but I’d also love to subscribe to your blog so I’m emailed new posts. I don’t see that option anywhere, except below the comment box and when I check the box…nothing! Am I doing something wrong here?

    1. Hi there! I am so glad you would like to subscribe! Thank you for reading! On my home page, on the bottom right hand corner, there should be a little button that says “follow”. Click on that button and type in your email address. It will notify you every time I write a new post! 🙂

  2. Em, I have only JUST discovered your blog, and I LOVE IT! Husband and I got married just a few weeks after you and Jared, and we’ve been paleo since March. So glad to see and read about other Christ-followers that eat real food (I feel like I get the most criticism from church people)! Thanks for the fun encouragement. 🙂

    1. Hi Amy,

      Thank you so much for the encouragement! And thank you for re-blogging this post! So thoughtful!! I know, we get criticism often, too!! That is so neat that you guys got married around the same time as we did! Marriage is the best!! 🙂

  3. so excited to find this site. My husband and I are new to the paleo world and I am looking forward to reading your blog.


  4. I came across your blog on pinterest and I LOVE your site! I try to eat Paleo as much as I can, and your website is giving me SO many ideas!! Also, I noticed you were at the Avenues in Forsyth right next to me! It’s nice to know I am not the only person around here who cares about what goes into my body!

    1. Hey Caitlin! That is SO neat that you live nearby! Sometimes Jared and I do feel like it’s tough to find people who care about what they eat, too! Maybe we can meet up sometime!? 🙂

  5. Going to get married July 26th and heading to Alaska for honeymoon and I loved your honeymoon pictures. Wondering she camera you use and if you asked strangers or set up a timer to get so many candids of the two of you? Super cute.

  6. Hey guys, We love your blog and would love to share our 100% natural fresh products with you. Me and my sister created Delizioso Skincare out of London ON.

  7. Hi! I stumbled across your blog because we are traveling to both Chicago and New York this summer!I love your blog! What lens/ lenses do you usually use for your traveling (like in Chicago and New York)? Thanks from a new fan 🙂
