Behind the Design: Our Incredible November Photo Shoot

Behind the Design, Behind the Scenes | | | 12 Replies

Talk about dreamy dinner party locations. We were swept away by the dramatic November Pottery Barn catalog cover. Curious as to where it was shot? If you’re from Maine, you might recognize the location.


The catalog cover was staged on Sunday River Bridge, also known as Artist’s Covered Bridge. The most painted and photographed covered bridge in Maine, it’s located on Sunday River Road in Newry, Maine. Sunday River Bridge, an 87-feet-long Paddleford truss bridge, was built in 1872. The bridge was closed to traffic over 50 years ago, with a new bridge located downstream. This makes it a perfect destination for artists, sightseers, and even wedding planners. We’re huge fans of this wedding, photographed by Andree Kehn, that took place on the Sunday River Bridge.


We’ve shot Pottery Barn catalog covers in some unusual places, but this may be our current favorite. And who wouldn’t want to get an invitation to a dinner party that took place on this beautiful covered bridge?
