Some of you more observant Twitter or Facebook followers might have caught a sneak peek or two from this weekend’s V4 shoot with Joey + Jessica Seawell (a.k.a the duo behind Veil and Bow, a.k.a. our brilliant V3 cover photographers). For those of you who didn’t, we’re here with a few behind the scenes photos to tide you over until September! And oh, just wait until September — the husband-and-wife duo behind Inkspot Crow came out to film the shoot, so you’ll be able to relieve all the sweaty, dirty, glamorous behind-the-scenes of this feature in motion in the fall!

On the left here we have Vera and friends chilling in my guest bathroom the night before the shoot. With $15,000 worth of merchandise in my protection, I did NOT want my pretty kitties to join the party… can you imagine the horror?!

On the right we have me the next day, prepping one of the props for a close-up shot. Let’s just say we were transforming a VERY common, VERY Southern, and decidedly unglamorous item into something sweet and lovely. In the background you can see the Dairi-o, source of much amusement (and food!) throughout the day.

Joey + Jessica are the real deal, y’all. We were shooting in a very small town in North Carolina, right next to a main road, and we joked that with all the screens and scrims and reflectors J+J brought, the residents were going to think a movie was in town. We also had a running contest throughout the day to see who could most accurately guess the number of car honks we would get. I guessed 15, Whitney guessed 16, and the winner, though disputed, was definitely one of the two of us.

Working hard or hardly working? From left to right, we had almost the full Southern Weddings crew in attendance: me (Emily, Art Director), Whitney (Ad Director), Marissa (Assistant Editor), Sierra (Assistant Art Director), Emily N. (Intern), and Nicole (Editorial Assistant). The only one missing was Lara!

On the left we have Jess, hard at work, and on the right, Joey, not hard at work. By the end of the day we were all incredibly dirty and sweaty, but also a bit giddy with success. Can’t WAIT to show you what we put together in V4, debuting in September!

A few notes: we’re still accepting real weddings for print, and will be until July 15! See this post for all the details, then email Emily. If you’re interested in getting in on the V4 ad action (and oh, you want to be), just drop Whitney a line. She’ll get you taken care of!

    You forgot to mention we spent $70+ in one big order at Dairi-O. Now that’s a lot of hot dogs and ice cream to feed a hungry crew! But the employees there were so nice about it and got essentially everything in our order right.

    trying to get directions to your yard sale but no luck! Is there a way you can post it somewhere so you get some business! :)

    Bless it! I grew up going to that dairi-o, granted it has changed quite a bit over the last few years. I believe I know just which little small town you are in!

      Amanda: Hilarious!! We were loving the Dairi-o that day, but I think they thought we were a little insane :) Oh, small Southern towns…
