Thank you for importing us to Winston-Salem for the this fairy tale wedding weekend. We had the best time exploring so many stunning spaces for each leg of the celebration. Cheers to Borrowed and Blue for a lovely presentation that matches the sparkle and elegance of Ashley and Brian.
Tickle your creativity and remember the last time you built a fort or spent time in a treehouse. The Gibbes brought in Patrick Dougherty to create an installation over the course of 3 weeks. His medium of stick sculptures are like playhouses for adults. I enjoyed so many elements of his process and completed creation. Check it out!
Weather happens. It is up to us to find the silver lining in each gust, drop or freeze and craft each into artful images. Cold weather brings out coats, snuggling and fun accessories like hats and scarves. Wind makes hair, veils and dresses dance. For raindrops, we bring out the big umbrellas and encourage lots of closeness. We count ourselves lucky that 9 out of 10 times our clients embrace the weather that shows up on their day. With well-adjusted expectations, we get to walk away with unexpectedly unique images.
These two are a shining example of making the most of raindrops!
We are often asked if we photograph engagements only (not the wedding to follow). The answer is yes! Some of our clients are on vacation and are drawn to images with beach or Charleston backdrops. Some clients live here and are getting married elsewhere. For whatever the reason, if we have the availability, we are honored. It is great practice to step in front of professional cameras and get comfortable with the process regardless if we are your wedding day photographers.
Art + Design @ The Gibbes! The Art of Design Luncheon Presented by the Women's Council featured speaker Vern Yip. Known for his TLC's Trading Spaces, NBC's Home Intervention and HGTV's most recognizable designer, Vern shared his background, travel experiences and personal style. My personal favorite tidbit were the measurements that translate to ease of living. His linens and patterns graced the tables of the luncheon.

Why the Tween years are special photographically? A Tween is 11-13 years old, in the window between childhood and young adult. Capture it before they are full fledged teenagers!
How to connect with Tweens for unique, authentic images? We lucked out on this portrait. The parents were open to picking a spot where the tweens felt comfortable and allowed them the space to be themselves. They had lots of choices such as clothing, smiling with or with/out showing teeth and backgrounds. They communicated, laughed and were involved in the experience.
