Here's a recent shoot we did for "At Home Tennessee Magazine" that's on newsstands for the September 2013 issue. Some of my favorite photography is architectural work, my next passion is food photography, and especially detail photography. I get the chance to shoot hundreds of details in high end weddings, so shooting an architectural and editorial food icing on the cake. I love incredible interiors, so when I got the call to shoot this spread, I was very happy to photograph this project, this is probably one of the most beautiful homes in Tennessee. I've photographed homes for NBA celebrities, movie stars and more, but this home was simply amazing. I'll let enjoy just a few of the highlight photos from the shoot. Special thanks to Angela Mazanti for her amazing tablescapes, attention to detail and her help with the food styling.
We've been a little swamped with photography and video this summer, and one of the many projects we've photographed is this amazing shoot with Colin Cowie Weddings. We were asked to shoot the wedding of the daughter of the editor of Southern Bride Magazine in Puerto Vallarta Mexico over the labor day week. We've been one of the editorial photographers for Southern Bride for several years, and done dozens of editorial shoots, but being asked to shoot the editors daughters wedding was an amazing honor. We shoot several destination weddings each year, but this one was way over the top - The wedding was to feature a Beach Collection created by one of the top event planners in the world, Colin Cowie. We spent the week working with Colin and his team at Hard Rock Resorts, which was very refreshing, fun and of course, a busy week. We will post a little more later, as we are still editing all of the photos and video, and we will announce a full press release once the feature wedding goes to print in the magazine, and on the Colin Cowie website, so stay tuned! Meanwhile, here's a sneak peak of Andrea and Charlie cutting their wedding cake!
