SouthernStyleIs 019Photographed in Atlanta, GA

Raised in:
Lawrenceville, Georgia.
My family roots are in Cuba. My grandparents came to the US in the 60’s but we have kept the culture alive…especially the food.

Lives in:
Atlanta, Geogia

Favorite spot in Atlanta right now:
Miso Izakaya. Guy Wong’s Japanese Gastro Pub has pulled at some heartstrings. There isn’t an item on the menu that I don’t obsess over (and the cocktails are just bangin’). I can’t get enough of the Old Fourth Ward neighborhood and all that is happening now and in the months to come. 

Now would ya look at that:
Photographed for Southern Living’s “Southern Style Is…” story – see his feature here.

Southern Style Is…

JessSLPhotographed in Atlanta, GA

I had the privilege of teaming up with Jess Graves for Southern Living’s “Southern Style Is…” story (her feature here). She asked 10 Atlantans what sets Georgia style apart, and I took their photos.

Go give it a lookse. You may see some familiar faces, including yours truly

Jay, Part III

Atlanta, Georgia

Favorite thing about Harbour Island:
It’s a contained slice of luxury in the middle of the Caribbean.

Wedding Getup Inspiration:
I wanted to do something that fit with the beach destination wedding theme, and I wanted to be comfortable. The royal blue jacket was an awesome find, as it reminded me of the color of the ocean in Harbour Island. The entire outfit was built around that.

Now would ya look at that:
Jay, who you should know by now as the man behind Red Clay Soul, on his wedding day.
See he and Lindsey’s perfect wedding here. We were honored to be a part of!

  • Brooks Brothers ‘Fitzgerald sport’ coat (similar). Lindsey surprised him with this embroided touch on the big day.  
  • Ledbury dress shirt. “I always opt for the slim fit versions of the Ledbury shirts, as the fit is spot on.  The royal twill version is such a luxurious fabric…it fit right in.”
  • Social Primer bow tie (detail). “We had the hardest time finding a bow tie that would work.  I wanted something to dress up the outfit, and when Cooper posted a picture of this upcoming design, I showed it to the future Mrs and got the OK. I called Cooper and ordered five immediately. There are roosters all over Harbour Island; they are the unofficial mascot.”
  • Sid Mashburn hem stitched pocket square.
  • Martin Dingman ‘Anthony’ belt. “I wanted to get my guys something really nice, so I got each of them this Anthony belt with an engraved buckle as a gift for being an attendant.”
  • J.Crew Ludlow Italian Chinos
  • ByPaige custom ‘JRS’ needlepoint loafers. “I went a little rogue here, and added some flare with these. I absolutely love them…not just for the wedding.”

True Value

Hey, it’s us! I think we can skip the whole “Raised In/Lives in/Random question” thing this time, yes?

There’s truly one reason why I wanted to share this photo, and it’s my dress. Yes, yes, it’s amazing, I know – that’s why I bought it. And you want to know where I bought it? At a True in the hardware store. Proving that you never know what sort of magic you can come upon at any moment in any location!

Oh and also, it was $15.


On Caroline….

What interests you most about the South:
I don’t believe that I’ve ever properly been to the South, but I’d be curious to know about this soul food that I hear about.

Meet Sidney Morgan, an incredibly talented photographer based in LA.
She killed it second shooting this wedding with me in July.

Favorite thing about heading south to the Caribbean:
There is no time in the Caribbean. No clocks, watches, phones, alarms. You get up when you want, eat when you want, and sleep when you want.
