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!

Welcome Eleanora Rose

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. We are enjoying these first few days as a family of three! Thank you all for your love and prayers. If you want to see more of this sweet face, you can visit our family blog here.

Many blessings,

Jennifer

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!

Suzanne & Luke | Garden Estate Engagement

There is almost nothing I adore more than photographing love in the most beautiful places. This gorgeous afternoon with Suzanne and Luke at this magical Southern estate was no exception. They are so in love and perfectly at ease with one another. The blooming arbors of Jasmine was nothing short of ethereal. I could have stayed with these two all day and been perfectly content. I cannot wait to photograph their beautiful wedding this Autumn!

Sarah Beth & Graeson | Classic Ballroom Wedding

I am head-over-heels in love with weddings. Even though I just went on maternity leave a week or two ago, I’m already having wedding withdraws. The whole day fills my soul up with a magical energy that completely consumes me. Even though our first baby is due any day now, I wanted to re-live Sarah Beth and Graeson’s day today. I feel so fortunate to work with such beautiful and loving couples that come alive when they are together. This couple is classy, smart and not to mention absolutely gorgeous together. I’d been looking forward to this day ever since their perfectly elegant engagement session last fall. Here are a few of my favorite images from their sweet wedding day.
