I grew up visiting my Mimi (my paternal grandmother) in Middleburg, and I have the sweetest memories there! It’s like stepping into a small English town- old stone houses, rolling green hill dotted with horses, curated shops selling quality clothing, art, and antiques. One of my favorite things about Middleburg is how many small businesses reside there, and Red Fox Inn is one of the most iconic of them all! It was an absolute privilege to shoot for such a well-known pillar in the town, one I grew up driving and walking past anytime we were in town to see family.
This was a unique brand shoot for me in that there wasn’t a single person in the frame! Matilda and her family have managed the property for the last four decades, and I LOVE her vision for the Inn.
Adding even more color to the event: the day we photographed, Matilda and her team were preparing to host the Middleburg Garden Club the following day, along with their guest of honor, Martha Stewart, who was in town for an event for Historic Garden Week in Virginia.
With gorgeous florals by Sweet Root Village and the fine-tuned team at Red Fox Inn, it was a delight from start to finish. I’ve said before that with almost every brand shoot, I add a new vendor to my list of people I want to buy from, and this was no different! I’m thinking Matt and I will need to make space on the calendar for a getaway at the Inn!
