Southern Weddings Editorial – Heirloom Tomatoes + Winner Announced!

In July, we took a trip down to Alabama with Lora’s family, and on the way back we stopped off in Chapel Hill, NC to do a shoot with Lara Casey + Emily Thomas and the amazing team at Southern Weddings Magazine. Working with the Southern Weddings team was probably one of my top career highlights so far – they are truly some of the nicest people Lora and I have ever had the chance to meet.

My wife was born in Mississippi and raised in the south with awesome parents. And some of her favorite memories consist of her mom snagging a homegrown tomato, slicing it up, dousing it with salt and pepper and just eating it. This shoot was really fun for her and gave me a great appreciation for southern culture and the celebration of family and tradition. Hope you all enjoy!

Love in Bloom Editorial for Southern Weddings Magazine

I couldn’t be be more thrilled to have been able to photograph for the latest issue of one of the best wedding magazines out there – Southern Weddings Magazine. So honored to have been able to work with top wedding vendors in Virginia and Charleston to produce a beautiful 10 page editorial.
Easton Events are designers extraordinaire and created a beautiful southern luncheon concept with white linen, apricot and lavender. Southern Blooms designed a whimsical and romantic bouquet with loose and watercolor flowers. Peter Callanhan, from New York, did all of the food design, and my lovely wife, Lora Kelley, did wardrobe styling and make-up. We were honored to partner with the most amazing local Charleston venue, Lowndes Grove. The paper suite was created by the fabulous Sideshow Press in Charleston and calligraphy provided by local Charlottesville amazing calligrapher – Jen Maton of If So Inklined. All-and-all, this was definitely a highlight of 2012 and we’re so excited to share it with you!

Also….. we’re giving away 3 copies to lucky readers! So, like our page and leave a comment on our blog to enter! : ) Happy December!!
