I've had a personal account for a while on Instagram, but now that Ariel Louise has one, I've been hunting for some really awesome bloggers, photographers, and average joe's to fill up my newsfeed, so I figured I'd share some of my favorites with you guys because well, we can all use a little foodspiration every once in a while right?
Obviously none of these photos are mine. So I've attached links to each of their profiles so you can hunt down way more of their awesome pictures.
Camille Becerra has some phenomenal photography on her page, with a good mix of beautiful food, architecture and foliage. I like that her page shows more than just the food; it tells a story.
Alison is the senior food editor of Bon Appetit, so you can bet her Instagram is filled with all sorts of tasty photos (and sneak peaks into the mag). I found out about Alison through a Milk Bar demo on their funfetti cake (on BA of course), where I found out that she is an absolute badass and goofball, so who wouldn't want to stare at her Instagram for hours?
Pictures of Seattle, travel, and seafood? It may not be all about baking (so what!) but I love Aran's feed because of the "voice" it has. It has such a sense of adventure that it makes me want to explore constantly.
If you're ever stuck on how to lay out a composition for your blog, Beth is your gal. Once again, a blog not only filled with endless desserts, but homes and travel; it's definitely something to keep in your arsenal if ever you suffer a case of wanderlust.
I don't think my list would be complete without Bon Appetit making an appearance. I love seeing current food trends, and what they've got hidden up their sleeves (I get their subscription so I'm always anxious to see what recipes I'll get to try in the month to come). From casual to fine dining, they're photos cover the spectrum.
The Instagram account for the couple behind WhiteOnRice is another one filled with a sense of adventure. Photographers traveling the world, and cooking as to take a break from it, their feed is always filled with a vast variety of photos.
I have a soft spot in my heart for Food52. They were the first food website that I would go out of my way to look at and keep up to date with. They're photography is bright and clean, but still soft, and they will always be my go-to when I'm lacking in blog post inspiration, or frustrated behind a camera.
I just discovered Marcus the other day, but let me tell you, his Instagram is AWESOME. Jaw dropping good food (pigroasts??), motorcycles and beer, what more could I want?
Not Without Salt is another blog that I follow. Ashley has showed me that radishes can be downright delectable, laughs are a day to day necessity, and kiddos make the best food models.
Another relatively recent discovery, I'm pretty upset that I wasn't able to visit Milk Bar when I was living in New York City. But if you're in the need for a color boost and some heavy sprinkles, this is the place to be. Nothing wrong with a visual sugar rush right?
Izy blows my mind because the girl is 19 and she's had this amazing food blog for years now. She's got her life together in the most delicious way possible, and she shows you through all sorts of fun photos from dino skeleton cakes to colorful ceviche. Her Instagram is on point.
Joy the Baker is seriously one of my idols. I love her writing, am jealous of her life in Louisiana, and am inspired by her crazy successes. You'll see cats floating around her page, plenty of donuts, and some snapshots of the southern state.
I don't know how I wasn't aware of this before, but David Lebovitz is on Instagram people! So exciting! I fell in love with David's personality and cooking after reading My Life In Paris, which for those of you who haven't read it, hits the hysterical nail on the head about the not so glamorous Parisienne lifestyle. He photographs delicate pastries and Parisienne scenes that make me miss going to school there.
Melissa is another foodie I've just come across who has a passion for simple, down to earth cooking, and minimally styled photography. She's all about keeping everything in her recipes authentic, and cooking from scratch, which I can definitely get on board with.
Who doesn't love everything that comes from the Smitten Kitchen? It was one of the first blogs I ever read, and used to teach myself recipes, so it's an amazing resource for me, especially now that I found her Instagram. All of her photos are rich with color, and you can always expect to find a recipe that you're dying to make that's completely doable.
Do any of you know of other Instagrammers I should follow?? I need some help so any would be appreciated! Who are your favorites to creep on in your spare time? Let me know in the comments below!
Happy Monday friends!
