Earlier this year my husband and I traveled to White Castle, Louisiana to photograph a fashion shoot with Southern Bride Magazine. We took a mini vacation to New Orleans before the shoot (since it was on the way…and who can resist the romance of The Big Easy?) – you can check out the behind the scenes here! After NOLA, we spent a few days at the incredible Nottoway Plantation capturing such stunning gowns and jewelry! With a Storybook theme, some of my favorite classics (including Alice in Wonderland) were used as visual elements!

Everyone at Southern Bride are so wonderful and it’s always such a blast to hang out with them! Time always flies…but I guess that’s what happens when you’re having so much fun! You can find the Summer/Fall issue on stands now – it’s FULL of such beautiful ideas! I’m not always a girly-girl, but it definitely comes out when I’m around such gorgeous dresses created by Claire Pettibone, Enzoani, Olia Zavozina, BHLDN, Lea-Ann Belter, Saja, Rivini, Ines di Santo, and numerous others!

Just like last time, it’s always bittersweet when the shoot comes to an end.
