I had planned on taking the week of Christmas off until I received the most beautiful, well written, doting email from the sweetest, most smitten woman. Elizabeth grew up in NC but has found her true home in Matthew, a restaurant critic from Austin. These two were just the coolest. Smart. Cultured. Witty. Fun. Affectionate. Easy to talk to. I knew that the mountains and open Carolina land meant a great deal to her soul, so I chose to share with them some special places near my home. I stopped after about 10 frames and couldn’t help but comment on how sincere and evident their adoration for one another is. It was just easy, as it should be. It was fulfilling to document and witness. Of all the photographers, she chose me, and my gratitude is abundant. xo
“All the sweetest winds they blow across the south.
Oh my sweet Carolina, what compels me to go?”
