Southern Bride Magazine - On Location at Annesdale in Memphis Tennessee

Every year for the past 9 years our team has been shooting for Southern Bride Magazine's bridal fashion spread. When we meet with the editorial team to discuss the locations that would be a great backdrop, we get to pick from destinations across the South. We've shot in Florida, South Carolina, Alabama, Tennessee and more. This time we told the editors about this magical place we found right in our own backyard, Annesdale Mansion. They agreed and we began preparing for the shoot by scouting the location many months ahead. Their team flew in dresses from the top fashion designers, and even a few up and coming designers. Southern Bride has a reputation for shooting some of the best fashion layouts in the world, so this shoot was no different. I used inspiration from Anthropologie and some of the style from their catalogs to give this shoot a beautiful style that brides will love. With the help of an amazing crew of 15, including the editors, hairstylists, makeup artists, fashion designers, interior designers, florists and my photography assistants, we are happy to show you this new section of the magazine. We shoot two sections for this issue, here is the "Inspirational" spread. The 2015 summer issue is on newsstands across the South.

Advertising Specialty Institute - Commercial Photographer Memphis Tennessee

Our commercial photography attracts high end  clients from across the globe. ASI is one of those clients that sought us out for our award winning professional style. Here's an inspirational poster for Nicole McNamee, one of the leading distributors for ASI. Her story inspires thousands of business leaders across the globe, and her work with professional corporations reaches thousands more. I love inspirational stories, it reminds me that my role in telling her story in itself is inspiring. Nicole and I spent a couple of days out shooting in various locations and shot several hundred photos, this one was selected by the magazine editors as their favorite. Let me know if I can help you tell your story!
