December rain + roses + camellias. so dreamy...
Good times, good folks. ALL AROUND
Chris and I took a trip to Durham last week to see Bon Iver... and we love this place. Especially these spots... The Durham Hotel (and rooftop!!), Brewery Bhavana, Bar Brunello, Littler, Lucky's Deli, Pizzeria Toro, and Scratch Bakery, Chet Miller, Letter's Bookshop, Vert & Vogue. This city is so easy to relax in, with some of the best food you'll ever find.
Right in the midst of some hurricane season, September 8th 2017, Hailey & James said their vows, and we partied :) These two came from Houston TX to celebrate their wedding on Edisto Is. (what?!!). I'm sure anyone would be freaking out at this point; with one hurricane behind you, and one looking very close to your wedding day. Also worth mentioning, the groom's side of the family was coming from the UK! BUT Hailey and James could not have been more loving and relaxed on their day. It was crazy beautiful to see how they made their wedding day happen, a day earlier than planned. Their family and friends were amazing, and even the caterers and band didn't hesitate to accommodate. Do your wedding the way you want to, and sometimes the way you have to! THE LOVE WILL BE THERE <3
Raven's release of "Girl With Flowers" is a beautiful collaboration of ladies in her life and their portraits done in her painting style. We had the joy of doing this shoot in one of Basic Projects homes, and it made for an awesome backdrop to these pieces. And can't forget, Delilah, the beautiful pup who makes a few appearances :)
This was such a fun day spent with Cayleigh Hopkins, of The Petal Report, Emily Kotarski, and all the other vendors who took part. Cayleigh went so beyond to organize this shoot down to the finest detail. The biggest thanks to everyone who helped make this day so beautiful!

The camera is not practical, it is huge, heavy and beautiful. It's been very inspiring to use this camera recently and I'm pretty obsessed with the images that are coming out of it. Above, Magnolia Gardens, and Breach Inlet, IOP.
These ladies impress me to no end. It is an honor to photograph Becca and Kaleigh who are both slaying the game (just in general, and especially when it comes to making art). These photos are taken in their new (again) studio space. Follow their work @sisalcreative, they're wrapping up two years of work for the Charleston Museum and it's about to be incredible.
