Seaside Dreams | Bridal Inspiration

There are a thousand reasons to love the Summer. The cool sand, ocean blues and warm rays of the sun are good for the soul. A few months ago our team started dreaming of some Summer wedding inspiration by the seaside. Here’s a little more about the inspiration behind this concept of the shoot:

When I think of Summer the first thing that comes to mind is the ocean. Perhaps its because I grew up minutes away from the shore. Regardless, I’ve always been enthralled by the dichotomy between chaos and calm of the sea. It is both fierce and gentle in an ethereally and haunting way. It evokes a beautiful sense of longing for the unknown and intangible. The ocean has always moved my soul deeply. I knew it would be beautiful to merge my love of the sea and wedding inspiration. When I found the dream-like coast of Fort Pickens, I knew it would be the perfect backdrop. Our model is a ballet dancer, beautifully using her talent for capturing emotion through movement. It is as if her love is out at sea and she waits for him. Looking out upon the waves fill her with both immense longing and peace. Our floral and paper designs pulled everything together in perfect simplicity. The watercolor on the paper suite wonderfully mimics the lull of the tides. Again, the model’s attire reiterated simplistic beauty and the organic-feeling tiara added just the right amount of elegance. We hope you feel as we do when looking at these images.

I’m honored to have this shoot featured on Wedding Sparrow today as well!

This is beyond stunning. I love the watercolor invitations. So unique and beautiful. Each picture feels like a painting, not necessarily a photography. It adds to the dreaminess and romance. Basically? I’m in love. Great job, Jennifer!

I guess it’s because I’m a new mom that this image pulls my heartstrings so much. There is something so special about a mama and her girl. It’s a beautiful bond. These two were the sweetest and I can’t wait to share more of their sweet beach-side session. These two beauties were a dream to create art with by the pastel colored sea waters. It has me longing for my little one to be old enough to explore the beach with me. One thing is for sure, I could photograph mama’s and their babies all day long!

 

Summer’s End

The Autumn season starts next week, and though I’m happy for the change I’m always a little sad to see Summertime go. It brought me the sweetest little girl this time around and we made so many memories. I always love to take a few images for myself at the end of the Summer as a celebration of it’s beauty. Everything is so green and full of life. It is the growth before the harvest. The warmth of the sun before a cool breeze. It has grown to be my favorite season. I love it’s vibrancy. I will never forget you Summer of Twenty-fourteen. You were wonderful.

We are so excited to announce the arrival of our little girl, Eleanora Rose Blair. She made her grand debut on Friday, August 8th, 2014. She weighed 7 lbs 3 oz and measured 20 1/2 inches long. We are so thankful for a healthy and beautiful baby girl. She was born with a full head of hair, which made us happy! She is the most gorgeous thing we’ve ever seen and we’re completely smitten.

Lindsey & Drew | Married

Summer weddings make me so incredibly happy. Lindsey and Drew’s wedding was one of the sweetest days of the season. After their ceremony, we took a few images around some historic buildings and the light was simply magical! Here are a few of my favorite images of these two love birds! I’m so glad I was able to be a part of your beautiful day Lindsey & Drew!
