Tips for creating the perfect Holiday Pictures: 

  1. Choose a location with natural scenery for the best lighting and backgrounds or use your home as a backdrop.
  2. Be comfortable in what you choose to wear. I remember all of our family pictures were always done in white shirts and khaki pants and we all complained the whole time! Instead, choose a color scheme and incorporate different shades. This give everyone more flexibility and allows them to love what their wearing, in turn making them more comfortable behind the camera.
  3. Bring in some help with staging. WE CAN HELP! Whether you choose to get pictures done with a full set up like this one, or your family gathered around a vintage couch, we are here to help the setup and staging process easy for you.
  4. Find a professional photographer. Many photographers around the holidays will host “mini sessions” for discounted costs so you’re not breaking the bank. Hiring a professional will ensure that your getting the desired pictures and you’ll pictures to cherish. Opposed to a cell phone picture you can’t even enlarge for your home!
  5. HAVE FUN –¬†Embrace the silliness

Southern Styled Shoot – Homemade Bride and Krista Joy Photography

Partnering with another vendor, especially one as wonderful as Krista (Krista Joy Photography) was such a fun and rewarding experience. When you get two running minds with two very different styles, beauty clearly shines through for the WIN!

From the start of the planning process, all of our ideas branched off of the fact that we wanted the Old North State Catering Trailer in a field of cows. Not wanting to let this dream go, we spoke with Chris Wrenn, of ONS, who made the calls to make it happen. From there the three of us presented this shoot as bringing the community together. We chose to highlight the success and hard work of our vendors and enjoy a wonderful meal together as we ended a perfect day at Drake Landing.

Thank you to all of our vendors who put in their time, efforts, and creative super powers to make our dream come true!
