Southern Bride & Groom Florals- Bay 7

I recently had the great privilege of photographing the floral story for the 2016 edition of Southern Bride & Groom Magazine.  I believe this is the seventh year we have collaborated and each time it gets better!

This year we had access to two separate venues, both affiliated with the Angus Barn.  The first session was at Bay 7, located at the American Tobacco Campus in Durham.  The second session followed a few weeks later at the Angus Barn Pavilion in Raleigh. (more on that in a separate post)

The florists are the stars of the show with this photo shoot and they did indeed crank up the creativity to create some stunning table top scenes.  Each Florist was able to show off their talents in a full spread in the magazine.

How will history remember you? Okay, that's heavy, and we just met, so I'll take the pressure off and begin again by introducing myself. My mission is to help you answer that first question. I want to show you and your world in a way you haven't seen before and at some point hopefully incite a small riot inside your head. An unapologetic Gen-X warrior for self-expression, I help people tell their stories. Not just the pretty and polished, "made for Linkedin" version, but the real essence of their legacy. At my core, I'm a visual artist. The still photographic image has been my story telling medium for decades. Now I use words, images and on the rare occasion images in motion to push others to be more, do more and express more than they originally thought was reasonable. Are you still reading this? Really? I'm impressed. Moving on... I am Southern, though not fried. In my view, Bar-b-que should be enjoyed with any sauce on hand at the time. There is no need to quibble over which style of sauce best compliments. The real question is, "slaw or hushpuppies?" The correct answer is, "yes!".
