A Beginner’s Guide to Collecting

February 8, 2018

This post began as a plan to share some of my favorite things that I inherited from my grandmother and where to find them now.   I receive a lot of questions about where certain pieces of furniture, plates, glass, silver and fabric are from.  Most of them have been passed down from my mother’s collection that she inherited from my late grandmother.   I know that this isn’t a particularly useful answer in the context of wondering where something specific is…

Dreamy Routine: Charleston’s Best Kept Secret

February 6, 2018

Middleton Place is one of my FAVORITE spots to visit in town.  It’s about half an hour out of downtown and is such a reliable spot to capture something beautiful – like a sunset stroll, and a glass of wine with my husband.  The gardens are spectacularly maintained and never fail to impress whatever the season. We used to come here quite often while we were shooting for our wedding work but realized that we hadn’t visited in a while…

Celebratory Lunch With Our Favorite Third Wheel!

February 2, 2018

5 Years Married & The Secret To Working With Your Husband!

January 31, 2018

Five years ago we eloped on a frozen lake in Maine.   It was only a handful of days after our engagement and such an exhilarating and amazing decision.    So much happens in five years, though it has zipped by:  we have lived in three cities, bought our first home, adopted two cats, photographed weddings all over Europe and North America, launched a series of Fine Art Photographs, but what makes us most proud and delights us every day is…

Charleston Ritual: Morning Bread Run

January 24, 2018

We’re celebrating the reasons we love Charleston so much by highlighting some of our favorite routines from around town; our first post was about our great love for Sullivan’s Island and our beach walks.   Another reason we love living here so much is the food!!   Will and I were actually planning to open a juice bar when we moved down to Charleston (we’re really glad that we didn’t but we still love juice!) and love to pick up a medley of…
