On the cover of Southern Bride Magazine for the new year 2015

One of my favorite magazines to shoot for is Southern Bride. About 8 years ago I met the editors at a party, and since then I've shot dozens of inspirational photo shoots for them, traveled across the country, flown to Mexico to shoot for them, created photo workshops for them, and write articles for the magazine. Getting picked to be on the cover is a competition among thousands of photographers around the country, and I'm always excited to get selected from such a large group of professional photographers. It's an honor to be featured on the cover of Southern Bride Magazine for 2015! Southern Bride is across the Southeast in Tennessee, Mississippi, Arkansas, Alabama, Georgia, Florida, South Carolina!

This cover shot was taken on the coast of South Carolina on Pawleys Island, a short drive from Charleston. We had a team of 15 creative people on this shoot, with my wife Janice as the hairstylist. If you look closely, you'll see raindrops in the shot, we managed to grab this shot right before a downpour. The lighting in this spot was simply perfect, and our models had just the right amount of charisma and talent to make this shot magical! Be sure to pick up a copy of the new issue and see the entire fashion shoot from our 2 week trip to South Carolina!

Christmas in Memphis!

Here's our featured cover shot for At Home Tennessee Magazine! What an honor to have been asked to shoot the cover, the location was at Annesdale Mansion, perhaps the most elegant location in the Southern USA. Special thanks to the designer, Angela Mazanti for having me out to shoot this on a cold, winter day right before the holidays! Be sure to pick up a copy and see the editorial photo shoots featuring Annesdale, and a special holiday cookie shoot with some amazing kids!
