Room + Revival
This is such a fun one today! Room + Revival was so cool to work with as a Greenville, South Carolina commercial photographer. When Town Magazine reached out to me about the opportunity to capture a story about Jessica Kilcoyne’s Rivivalist creativity for their Home Issue, there was no way I could refuse. Capturing portraits and creative spaces is easily a favorite of mine as a photographer. I’m so stoked to tell you all about this experience today!
Stepping Into This Photography Experience
When Town pitched this project to me to photograph Jessica and her creativity with Room + Revival, I was initially honored. Mostly because working with other creatives is such a passion of mine and Town Magazine is a gorgeous magazine. They sent over their mood board, gave me contacts to connect with and the location to head to! When I arrived to Jessica Kilcoyne’s AirBnb, the Pettigru House, it immediately felt so inviting and cozy, like a breath of fresh air. It was truly an expression of Jessica’s entire welcoming personality. She was so hospitable and kind.
What We Photographed
After our initial greetings were made and the photography gear all set up, it was time to start photographing. In this Greenville, South Carolina Airbnb, we started with portraits of Jessica in her main bedroom to highlight the homes original emerald green tile. We even photographed the time that Jessica revived on her own whenever her contractors said it would be impossible – hence the name Room + Revival. Naturally, our writer of this article, Brendan Blowers absolutely included this tile in his writing.
Shortly after this, we focused our attention on the gorgeous kitchen which was actually two rooms combined into a cafe style seating area. Much of the art inside the Pettiru House kitchen was actually thrifted and revived. Jessica mentioned that she considers herself not an interior designer or DIYer, but someone “nurturing a patient back to health”.
Combined Artistry For A Final Result
After photographing final details, that was a wrap! Submitting all the images from this day made me feel so giddy, I loved almost every photo I captured. Brendan couldn’t have written a more beautiful article and Town’s selection in images truly brought this story to life. I highly encourage you to read the entire story!
