Trouvaille: Workshop with a heart film photographyPart Two

Trouvaille: Workshop with a heart film photography
Days one, two, and three of the Trouvaille Workshop are incredible and full. As a photographer, I was especially captured by the floral arranging classes, because it is such a beautiful skill to have! I was fascinated, and I felt like I could soak everything up like a sponge. I don't care how long you are in business, you can always learn more, and that's exactly what[...]

When we began our interview process for our internships this year, Cassie shined so bright! She is so joyful, intentional, hard working, and she communicates so well. She has an eye for creativity and design, and she even does some hand-lettering!

The Lively Workshop Editorial
By the second editorial shoot at The Lively Workshop everyone was starting to get into their own groove of things. I was starting to feel my own photography style coming out, and feeling more confident in what I was photographing. I love everything about this shoot: the rain drops, the gorgeous Hayley Paige gown, and the model's infectious smile. I was pushed to captu[...]

Merrimon-Wynne Christmas
Whether it's your first Christmas together or your twentieth, decorating for Christmas is such a joyful time. Christmas music, a blazing fire and warm cups of hot chocolate is what I will always remember about decorating our house for Christmas. As we pull each precious ornament out of the box, we reminisce on where it came from and why we love it so much before placi[...]

When I mention Clinton, North Carolina, rarely does anyone know where I'm talking about. But for me, when someone says Clinton, I am immediately transported to Papa and Mama Dot's country home (my late grandparents), sipping sweat tea on their screened in porch, looking out at the pond in their back yard. I'm reminded of my childhood, my Thanksgiving dinners, my cousi[...]

Love Preserved Behind the Scenes
There are few things more beautiful than the North Carolina countryside. Fields full of growing crops, spring trees all in bloom, and not to mention the sweetest old couple who took "southern hospitality" to a whole new level. It was a day filled with lots of hustle and bustle from each of the amazing vendors along with some good front porch conversations. And we can'[...]

DIY Wrapped Vases with Rebecca Rose Creative

DIY Wrapped Vases with Rebecca Rose Creative
From Becca: This project is a fun way to add a little metallic zest to your wedding or party tabletop. Since we were using gold flatware and going for a more playful and contemporary take on a traditional tried and true color palette, adding a little gold wire to our otherwise simple glass floral vessels helps pull it all together in a way that is unique and unexpec[...]
