The Greenbrier Resort West Virginia - Southern Bride Magazine Weddings

The Greenbrier Resort West Virginia - Southern Bride Magazine Weddings
This fall our team went on location to shoot the editorial fashion pages for millions of Brides to swoon over for their wedding dreams. If you've ever been to the Greenbrier, you know its one of the most magical properties in the world. It was built in the 1800's and is on the National Historic Landmark Register, the hotel is immaculate, and sees thousands of visitors and guests each week. Many of the artifacts in the hotel are on loan from museums across the United States. Known for it's private bunker, the hotel is an emergency safe haven for Presidents, Congress and leaders of the United States, and was used to provide security to our Nation for many years.

Southern Bride put together this shoot about a year ago, and we've been excited about shooting this for the entire year. Here's a behind the scenes video that we filmed during the photo shoot. The working title is the American Beauty Collection, and you will love every photo from the collection. Visit our website to see more of the amazing photos.

We shot almost 5000 photos and shot hours of video footage, narrowed the photos down to the top 1000, and the editors selected their favorites for the magazine spread and covers. We've been shooting beautiful weddings for over 10 years for hundreds of brides, getting to shoot for Southern Bride Magazine is always an honor, and we get to shoot in some of the most amazing locations in the Southern USA, Mexico and The Caribbean. ( Spread the word if you know of a couple that would like us to shoot their wedding, we love photographing beautiful weddings) The new issue of Southern Bride hits newsstands across the Southern United States January 1, 2017, so pick up a copy.
