Sharing this post and photos from this shoot with you is like sharing a little piece of me, my heart, my art, my experience, my dream, and my vision.
I have always wanted to do my own styled shoot. Having attended them in the past, I am always in awe at the design and vision. I wondered, "Could I do that?" Well, but of course I can, and I did (with a good bit of help, that is)!
My original vision was inspired by some pins I saw on good ol' Pinterest. I just love the slate blue color palette against a pastel beach sunset. I searched high and low for the perfect dress and I found it at Eleanor's Bridal. I already knew I wanted the talented Olivia Mar to model it along with her handsome fiance and I was so stoked that they were in! With the dress, models, and location, I grabbed Adam and Unoaked to help me take my vision across the finish line and he always hits it out of the park.
Kim at Sweet Pea Rentals helped me out a ton too with all of the gorgeous prop rentals. I was able to tour her props storage and it truly was a vintage heaven. I was in awe. Melanie with Bella Blooms brought the most beautiful florals to the mix and I am obsessed with the charcuterie by Produce Catering.
This story is of an intimate elopement on the shores of Laguna Beach, California. Their taste is high-end with a touch of vintage elegance. Timeless. The day feels like a dream and the pictures capture that. Romance can be felt in every image and their laughter is easy with real, true, with a pure connection.
So what do you think of my first styled shoot? Did I sell you on a simple beach elopement? Do you feel the dreamy vibes I was going for? I sure hope so! Drop me a heart on this post if you agree. ;)
