Take the time to look and really see!

A while back, a good friend and I took a day off and just went out to shoot. Nothing planned, no idea what we might find, just shoot. . .and BS a little (OK, alot!), and laugh, and just be photographers. We get so caught up in our hectic everyday lives, running around like ants doing our ant business, that we often miss so many beautiful things happening right in front of us. Take the time to take a deep breath, relax and really see! Here's a few images from our day. . .enjoy!

Thanks Parker for helping me continue to see beyond the obvious and the ordinary!

Just a lily pad?

Stop and smell 'em people. . .or at least stop and enjoy!

Vicarious parenting pic for Rachel!

Laugh, live and enjoy the day!

New look for our blog!

Hey gang! We've updated our blog with some new color and formatting in anticipation of receiving our new printed materials from Bumblebee Press and the amazing Jared Swafford (Swing From the Rafters Design) in Atlanta. All new colors and design done in letterpress! We can't wait!

Now for our first post. . .we just returned from Asheville where we met for coffee at Old Europe with our friends Lara Casey, Editor-in-Chief, + Rachel Smith, Editorial Assistant, of Southern Weddings Magazine. After a quick cup of coffee and tea, we walked over to the beautiful new downtown digs of Shay Brown Events so Lara + Rachel could see Shay's amazing new space! (Thanks Lauren for taking the photo below!)

Brides. . .if you haven't checked out Lara's blog yet do it now! It is an amazing resource and just beautifully done. Also. . .be on the look out for the inaugural issue of Southern Weddings Magazine in January! Thanks Lara and Rachel for making the trek to meet with us. . .next time make it a weekend!

And now for a sneak peek of a recent wedding. . .Teale Taggart + Trey Smith were married a couple of weeks ago in a beautiful ceremony at the First Presbyterian Church in Highlands, NC followed by a gorgeous reception at The Farm at The Old Edwards Inn. Teale is the Corporate Alliances Liaison for St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, an organization that does amazing work for kids around the country. Teale + Trey made a donation to St. Jude in appreciation to and in the name of their guests. We support St. Jude's and we hope you will too! Here's a couple of teaser images from the weekend!

We had a great day. . .hope you did too!!
