Alison & Andrew were married on Halloween night in one of my favorite cities in America, Austin, Texas. Alison prepped for her big day at the beautiful and luxurious Hotel St. Cecilia. The day before the wedding the forecast called for heavy rain and tornados… it was so bad that the storm flooded the air traffic control towers in Austin and my team and I were diverted to Houston on Friday morning. We had to rent a car and drive 3 hours to barely make it in time for their rehearsal dinner. Fortunately and quite miraculously, the clouds parted and the sun actually broke out for the majority of the wedding day – no one could believe it! Throughout the weekend, I enjoyed getting to know both the Langdon and Vicker’s families. They could not have been any more kind and accommodating to me and my team. I left feeling inspired to love my friends and family in a deeper, more passionate way and to try to enjoy life to the fullest. I can’t wait to travel to Maine this coming October to document Alison’s brother’s wedding, which I know will be another beautiful celebration!

I had the pleasure of working with the extremely talented Ben Rector to come up with some images for his newest album titled “Brand New”. He wanted the album photographs to match the feeling of his new music which was timeless, young and colorful. So on one beautiful Spring day he grabbed his bike and I grabbed my cameras and we made it happen. We intentionally focused on not making it feel like it was a photoshoot, which I loved because he could easily forget about the camera and just be himself! He was having fun on his bike and I did my best to capture it. I love how these images turned out and I love the honest approach we took to find them.

I always love shooting at the beautiful RT Lodge, but when your client’s are good friends it makes it that much sweeter! Ryan & Megan celebrated their love over a long weekend in beautiful East Tennessee with their closest family and friends. The best part about this venue is that you have the lodge all to yourself for the entire weekend! This created a perfect space for Ryan’s family, from South Dakota, to get to know Megan’s family, from Texas. Guests spent their time hiking, playing yard games and eating some of the best food around, cooked by the master chef, Trevor Stockton! Believe me, everything he cooks ranks up there with the best food I have ever eaten! All in all, the weekend was a lovely escape for everyone and truly celebrated the merging of two wonderful families!

I am honored to have this wedding published on Snippet & Ink today!

The stunning Goodstone Inn in Middleburg, Virginia made for the perfect setting for Susan & Chris to join their two sweet families together. The day could not have been more enjoyable and every little detail was presented beautifully.

A huge thanks to Weddings Unveiled for publishing it in their Spring 2015 edition and to the uniquely talented team that pulled this event off so effortlessly – it was a pleasure working with each of you.

Last Fall, Caroline and I traveled to the small town of La Celle in the Provence region of France to document Megan & Michel’s wedding weekend. The venue, Hostellerie de l’Abbaye de la Celle, is a boutique hotel adjoined to the Eglise Sainte Marie abbey that dates back to the 12th century! The weekend, from start to finish, could not have been more perfect!

Special thanks to Megan for creating such a unique experience for everyone involved // Laura of Un Grand OUI for helping orchestrate this beautiful day // Chantalle Barbier for all the floral decor // Camille Bonardi for hair & makeup

Also, a big thanks to Geraldine Magazine for publishing Megan & Michel’s wedding story in their second edition!

You can see their rehearsal dinner from Aix-en-Provence here.

My beautiful and talented wife threw the most incredible surprise birthday party last Fall, ushering me into my 30’s in the best way I could have imagined! This night was beyond special to me and I can’t thank her enough for creating such a wonderful setting for my friends and family to come together and celebrate.

Here are Caroline’s words, further explaining the night from her perspective:

“In my family, we place strong a emphasis on celebrations. We are always looking for an excuse to get together and throw a party, anticipate an upcoming milestone or speak love into each other’s lives, so when Clark’s big 3-0 approached, I knew I wanted to create something unforgettable. Instead of throwing a “big” party and inviting everyone we knew, I decided to invite 10 of our closest couple friends to a long sit down dinner in my parent’s beautiful backyard. I wanted it to be intimate and intentional. It was actually a surprise party, but in order to document the day, I surprised Clark before everyone arrived so he could take pictures. As he was photographing the table, he walked around to find each of the table placement cards and one by one he was able to see who was coming! It was a chilly night in late November so we set up several fire pits and had a whisky bar and s’mores on hand for later. One of our close friends is a talented chef here in Nashville and we hired him to come and prepare all of the food. With each course he came out and told us about the dish and how he had prepared it. The food was indescribably delicious! About halfway through the night, I asked for anyone who felt inclined to stand and speak a few words of encouragement into Clark’s life as he passed from his 20’s into his 30’s. In my family, this is a tradition for each birthday we celebrate so it was fun to incorporate our friends into it this year. I feel that everyone should have a moment in their lives where close friends and family can speak about them openly, encouraging them and lifting them up. For me, these moments in life seem to be the ones I remember the most. After the speeches, friends and family stayed and celebrated late into the night. It turned into a perfect Fall night under the stars that we will never forget!”

Ben Rector // Paris

Ben Rector wrote a song called Paris for his upcoming album “Brand New” and he asked me to create the official music video for it on Super 8 film! I couldn’t have been more excited to take on the project. Ben, Hillary and I flew over the Atlantic and had the best time exploring the streets of Paris together. This is the footage we came away with!

Thanks to my brother Campbell Brewer of Little Village Films for doing a beautiful job on the edit!

Caroline and I were so excited to visit sunny Palm Springs, California this past Spring and stay in our first Ace Hotel. I brought my Lomo LC-A+ and shot a roll of film during our stay – these were a few of my favorites!
