A few months ago, I shared a post featuring the 20 Columbus Instagrammers You Should Be Following. If you know anything about Columbus, it should come as no surprise that what followed was a stream of suggestions about who should have been included on the list. (We’ve got no shortage of creative talent + local love.) In other words, there’s too much goodness for just one list. So this is list #2.
Anyone can take a photo, but not everyone is a visual storyteller. Much like the first group of instagrammers, the 20 people you’ll meet below have a passion and a gift for consistently telling the story of Columbus (and Ohio) through the beautiful, thoughtful images they snap and share.
Lauren Blake // @wholelivinglauren
There was time I regarded “whole living” as nibbling on nuts and leafy greens like some sort of giant rabbit. Lauren’s endless feed of “whole livinspiration” has proven me wrong. Very, very wrong.
Columbus Coffee Experience // @cbuscoffee
Who needs to wake up and smell the coffee when you can wake up, tap into Instagram and scroll the coffee?
Cheer Up Letterpress & Design // @cheeruppress
FACT: Real mail makes people happy. This feed is a constant street of paper porn (of the SFW variety) that lives up to the promise of its cheer-inducing name.
Mission Coffee Co. // @missioncoffeeco
I have an inexplicable aversion to hot liquids, which prevents me from being a coffee drinker. But if I were, this is where I’d be sipping my days away, one beautiful, perfectly-lit, topped-with-a-foamy-work-of-art cup at a time.
DeliciOhio // @deliciohio
You know that unspoken Thanksgiving rule in which an entire nation agrees to embrace the imminent binge and gorge…because FOOD? DelicOhio puts the “feed” in “instagram feed.” Enjoy a Columbus-inspired visual gorge…with none of the calories and zero need to don your favorite fat pants.
Chelsea Mohrman // @farmfreshtherapy
If I were inviting one Instagrammer to come decorate my home for me, it would be Chelsea of @farmfreshtherapy. One part simple beauty, one part unexpected delight, all parts crazy beautiful. Chelsea creates a world filled with marvels (both manmade and natural) that make you feel like you’ve just stepped into a magical storybook …or the coolest store ever.
Taylor Riggs // @simplytaylorblog
When the former @cravebytaylor fell off my Instagram feed, I was sad. When she reappeared as @simplytaylorblog, I was delighted. Taylor’s photos will leave you with a serious case of breakfast envy…and a major side of puppy snuggles. I can’t imagine a better combination than that.
Live Columbus // @livecolumbus
Think of @LiveColumbus as a community within the community. Someone new has been taking over this account daily since October 31, 2014, which makes each new day kind of like turning the page in the story of Columbus and what life here means to the people who call this region home.
Amy Taylor // @ohiogood
OhioGood is a celebration of all things Ohio — with an emphasis on life in and around Columbus. From farmers markets to rural farms, the Short North to shortcake, if it’s good and hails from Ohio…you’ll find it here.
Amanda Heslinga // @rockswithsass
I have come to think of Amanda as Columbus’ true “rock star.” With beautiful work like this, it’s not hard to see why.
Ohio Explored // @ohioexplored
Fly over state, eh? Your argument is invalid. And this is the Instagram account that’s gonna prove you wrong.
Sarah Crock // @columbusnutritionco
Forget what you think you know about boring ol’ health food. Sarah’s feed is photo proof that healthy eating can be wonderful tasty…and profoundly beautiful.
1820 House Candle Co. // @1820house
With a scent offering that includes tomato vine, roasted coffee bean and French baguette, these candles should be at the top of every localvores Columbus holiday giving list.
Por’ketta // @porkettacbus
Sorry vegetarians, you’re missing out. Not only does this local food truck produce some drool-worthy culinary creations, they’re hugely active on Instagram and big supporters of other Columbus instagrammers.
Derrick Linn // @marsder
Meet Columbus’ tiniest residents. They’re always up to something (and half teh time, it’s a fairly sassy something…)
Tina // @tizara
Tina’s photos stop time for a single, precious, awe-inspiring frame, creating a feed that proves there’s a world of difference between seeing and savoring our moments.
400 Market // @400market
Arguably the hippest farmer’s market in the most up-and-coming hood in Columbus, 400 Market has shared a season of sneak peeks behinds the scenes at Franklinton’s local gem.
Megan Hogan // @_mgnhgn
There are creative people…and then there are creative people. You know, the kind of people who seem to leave a trail of color and wonder and glitter and inspiration in their wake wherever they go. Megan is the latter. Bonus? Her spirit and endlessly positive message are just as beautiful as her art.
Best of the Menu // @bestofthemenu
Not sure what you’re in the mood for? Tired of the same old places? Feeling a rising swell of hanger? Never fear. Your taste buds have just met their match.
