Beach haze inspired shoot

September 6, 2012

This shoot basically sums up what the past few days have looked like. It still feels like summer, but there’s a looming haze letting us know fall is just around the bend. But this shoot is adorbs! The cute couple (just married last month), the desert-hued color palette, soft patterns, lush florals and a dress & cake inspired by the motion of the ocean all come together in the sweetest way.

The concept for this shoot developed as our team was chatting about how to truly inspire brides to find ways to bring all of their planning together – including the engagement session. We wanted to show brides they can tie everything together, from their engagement to the wedding details, so you will notice flowers connecting the engagement session to the wedding bouquet, photos from the session used on their Save the Dates, and so on.
