Published: Winter 2014 Oh Brides Magazine

Late last year Oh Brides magazine extended an invitation for La Maison to submit a stylized shoot for their upcoming issue.  I was honored when I was asked to photograph this event.  We were granted access to the beautiful High Museum.  The Oh Brides new issue is here!  And what a beautiful issue it is.  I am loving the creativity and edge in this issue.  I will show more images from this shoot and list out all of the vendors that made it happen in another blog post.

 

 Here is the fabulous cover by the talented Laretta Houston.

Featured: Oh Brides Magazine High Museum Shoot

We are a few weeks into 2014 and it’s already shaping up to be an epic year.  I can’t wait to release all of the fabulous engagement sessions we are shooting for our 2014 clients.  Now, if only we could stay on top of all of the blogging …..

We ended last year with Oh Brides Magazine asking the La Maison collective  to do a featured magazine shoot at the High Museum.  I was excited to be asked to be the photographer for this shoot.  I couldn’t stop smiling when we found out late last week that  Focal Blu’s behind the scene footage caught the attention of WPPI’s blog, Photoforward.

 

Cheers to an awesome 2014 and enjoy Torrey’s stunning work.  Click here to see the video.

Abha and Amit got engaged in Napa Valley.  They brought a little bit of that magical Napa afternoon to Atlanta by having their favorite red and white wines as favors for their guests.
