Southern Living Weddings Magazine Feature

I’m so excited to finally share these images from my Southern Living Weddings magazine feature! Rewind to last July when I was contacted by the lovely ladies at Southern Living magazine about doing a 6-page spread for their annual “Weddings” edition. To say I was rather excited about the opportunity was an understatement. In the end, the entire experience, from working with the hilarious crew to actually having the chance to fuss over my flowers, was totally my jam.

It was a fun–and packed–two days, during which our place became a glorified photo studio, and everyone left obsessed with Gus, the dog. Fastest way to my heart, FYI.

And without further ado, here’s a snippet of the feature—one that I’m considering my “Southern Debut” as, let’s not kid ourselves, I’m tickled pink that I’m featured in a magazine with such a storied following here in the South.

2013 is starting off mighty fine.

This seems like an apropos way to return to blogging, but has anyone snagged any of the most recent copies of Brides magazine? They recently did a complete revamp of the look of the glossy, and I love the new direction.

Second best? The July issue has a feature on Austin as a destination wedding market, and all the vendors who y’all should hit up to help make your wedding happen! I spoke with some of the lovely ladies over at Brides earlier this spring about the article, and am so excited that we’re featured! We’re amongst some of the best talent in the city, which makes this especially sweet.

I’m off to Salt Lake City tonight to help this lady out with some weddings, and will be pulling a little westward jaunt afterwards. Be prepared for awkward, late-night instagram photos and plenty of beach time. Did someone say Los Angeles and La Jolla? Oh yes!

Eamon Mac Mahon

Canadian photographer Eamon Mac Mahon captures my beautiful land so so well. And as I sit here in Austin – grey, and raining, and reminding me a little of winters on the Pacific West Coast – I relish in Mr. Mac Mahon’s abililty to capture the simple beauty that abounds up north. There’s something about the subdued tones that really remind me of those winters [and makes me want to snuggle up with some tea and a book]. Must be that time of year!

Local Folks // Paige Newton Photography

I had the delightful task of meeting up with Paige Newton a couple of weeks back to let her camera into the studio. ┬áHer Local Folks series spotlights local makers and the spaces in which they create and work. They are always fascinating to me — how and where people work, their aesthetics as it translates to space, et al. Long story short, the profile is already up on her blog! Here’s a snippet, with the full post over here. [Also! Gus Gus, the unofficial-official-lady-loving canine mascot. He’s mesmerized by an oversized tennis ball in most shots. Hence, well behaved.]
