Sweet Violet Bride Editorial Feature for MYD

Once in a while our breath is literally taken away by images that photographers get back to us featuring our work.  As you can imagine, this is an awesome feeling and gives us much pride in the work we do.  We were fortunate enough to meet and collaborate with Heather Payne on a styled shoot set against a Biltmore backdrop.  We were so impressed with the vendors that came together for this outdoor shoot as well as Heather because she shoots everything in FILM.  Of course, that means things could go amazingly great (because she’d have to be THAT good) or less than favorable because we’d only get one shot at pulling it all off.

After you see the images below and the spread in Sweet Violet Bride that was featured in this month’s edition of their magazine, we’re sure you’ll agree with us that Heather definitely pulled it off and gave us more than we could have asked for with this breathtaking styled garden shoot!  Stay tuned for more images from the shoot tomorrow, too!  Enjoy!

Real MYD Chapel Hill Wedding – Kelsey + Charlie

Kelsey was an absolute joy to work with!  From the very beginning we enjoyed having her come in for her bridal portraits and sessions leading up to the wedding day.  It was very obvious that her wedding at the Carolina Club in Chapel Hill was going to be full of laughter and love.  We wish Kelsey and Charlie all the best and cannot wait to see what the future holds for this lovely couple!

Kelsey’s laugh is infectious and kept her whole bridal party in a great mood all morning while getting ready.  Don’t you just love that red lip?!  Jen B had so much fun creating this smokey eye and bold lip combo for Kelsey’s big day.
Kelsey’s bridesmaids were stunning with their red bouquets and loose, textured updos.  Hair styling was provided by Jen H and Kristin.

Jen H did a beautiful job on Kelsey’s low, modern chignon.

Stunning exit for a stunning bride!  Leave us some love and your thoughts on Kelsey’s big day here in the comments or on Facebook and Twitter.  What did you think of her red lip and chignon?
