Soiree Magazine Fall/Winter Centerpiece Shoot

posted by Kelly

One thing Ryan and I have enjoyed over the last few years photographing in Lynchburg is the amazing contacts we have made. Not only do we have some GREAT photographer friends in the area (shout out to Adam and Sarah) who encourage us in our marriage, family, business and faith…but we have the opportunity to work with awesome vendors.

About eight months ago we were approached by a budding wedding magazine, Soiree, to be a part of their first issue. Not only did they use some of our photos for stock prints, interview us for an article on what to ask your wedding photographer and choose one of our most favorite weddings to highlight in their “Everyday Soiree” section. We were able to help them out with purchasing some ad space and selling one of our photos to another vendor, Old Trail Golf Course, in Charlottesville, VA for them to use our photo as their ad! (It is on the to-do list to scan in the pages of the first issue in which our work is featured).


The best part is the relationship we have developed with Emily and Stephanie, the editors of the magazine. We have so much fun every time we meet.

For the fall/winter spread we were asked to photograph some mock centerpiece ideas over at the Farm Basket. We jumped at the chance to help them out and take a break from wedding photography to shoot commercial for a change.

Here are a few sneak peeks from our afternoon with Soiree. If you would like to receive a copy of Soiree, you can contact them here. Their website is coming, but their contact information is available.

Some winter ideas

Fall Ideas

This very DELICIOUS, AMAZING toffee, chocolate covered apple ended up in my belly. Did I mention that there is about a 1/4 inch of caramel between the chocolate and apple. OH MAMA!!! All apples, truffles, and cookies were courtesy of Taste Selects in Lynchburg. She is the best!

Evening ideas:

Put some punch into your centerpieces

OHHHHH cupcakes! Can you tell I am craving sugar as I post this?

Keep your eyes peeled for the upcoming issue in September and for our ad and images.
