A huge thank you to Kathryn from Snippet & Ink for the lovely feature. And I love this tip from Ginny about her vision for this event: “If you have a modest budget I highly recommend the power of candlelight. Have a few show-stopping arrangements but drench the space in candlelight. The warm glow makes everyone look more beautiful and the evening will be nothing short of magic.”

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.
