Laurie and Grant boldly chose Old Edwards Inn in Highlands, North Carolina site unseen based on its incredible recommendations. I could easily see why, it truly is one of the most loveliest of settings for a wedding indoors and out. I adored that they were inspired by the Apple orchard and included fresh fruit in their decor, as well as the beautiful magnolia leaves in the centerpieces. It truly was a honor to work with Elizabeth and her team on this stunning wedding.

ross & rebecca of many fold farm

One of my favorite shoots from last year… Ross and Rebecca hired me to take family portraits on their farm, Many Fold Farm, last Fall. They are farmers whose lambs are born and raised there, where they have eaten nothing but mother’s milk and fresh green grass (fertilized by chickens, not chemicals) their whole lives. Their story of  their journey is incredible; to have been able to spend a day with them doing the chores, meeting their dogs (or guardians, really, who live among the sheep and protect the livestock) and witnessesing their love of farming was such a gift. I hope to go back in a few months to photograph their cheese-making process, which in itself is an art form. Currently, it is lambing season, and just last week six baby lambs were born. You should visit if you get the chance.

I had the pleasure of shooting Louise and Matt’s entire wedding weekend… from their incredible rehearsal dinner at the Hermitage Hotel, to their traditional sunset church ceremony and gorgeous reception at Belle Meade Country Club. You aren’t allowed to shoot inside during the ceremony, so I captured glimpses of their nuptials through the cross window. We lucked out with only a little bit of rain in the evening, and that certainly didn’t damper the mood as the band performed one of the most incredible sets, keeping everyone on the dance floor, and even on the stage…

.. and thank you to Elizabeth Anne Designs for the lovely feature on their blog.
