There are few things that, from a creative standpoint, get me out of bed in the morning. Rather I should say, there are few things that lock me snuggled into bed as I dreamily glide through each image, entranced by what I see. Moody, earthy artful yumminess is certainly on that short list. When I stumbled upon Australian wedding photographer Ine Ertvaag Photography styled elopement along the Australian coastline, you can best believe I didnt budge one inch out of bed. In fact I snuggled down hard as I walked through each and every frame of the elopement. The brilliance to the way that Ine captured such a simple (lacking in details :0 ) elopement is the very fingerprint to why, if dont value you wedding photography, true good wedding photography, you're a bloody fool. I wasn't there, but you better believe I was standing right next to them as I leafed through the story. I felt my own hair a complete mess, pushed around with reckless abandon by the wind. My eyes ached with each adjustment to the fading light. My own skin felt of the very same goosebumps Ine captured as the tendrils of the Gwendolynne wedding dress beat against her skin. True, honest, & worthy wedding photography is not about being able to look back at images and think to yourself, yup thats is what happened. Its about seeing even a solitary image and feeling as if it comes alive...
In my early childhood years I had the unique privilege of spending a few years on a petite Caribbean island called Montserrat. One of the incredibly cool features to the islands were rich black sand beaches. Ever since then I have always had a sweet spot for these silky smooth oddities! When an Oregon elopement hit my inbox from wedding photographer Blush Creative Photography set on darker sand beaches, I knew I was hooked. The Oregon coastline is a thing of goddess like beauty and the locale of this styled shoot only served to hence the elegant moody affair. A simple sweetheart table with details like seaglass pieces and draped fabric picked up on the natural surroundings. Injecting a touch of color into the neutral surroundings, cool greens, baby blues & pale pinks accented the Oregon elopement. The last piece to the puzzle was a dove grey gown from Joanna August that joyfully danced in the wind. This vision of an Oregon elopement is simple perfection, as an elopement doesn't have to mean something light on style just because there are not a hoard of guests to see it.

Whether you're a fan or not, fall is coming here in the US. With fall's arrival so does the power of golden hour in all its color drenching glory. When three wedding pros from Maryland met up for the first time they knew immediately that they had to create together and create they did! Wedding photographer Manda Weaver Photography headed to the coastal shoreline of the Chesapeake Bay Beach Club for a swoon-worthy bohemian bridal style inspiration shoot. Florist Amy Nicole Floral took the bohemian bridal spirit to heart, gathering a mix of blooms in an untamed way, true to the bohemian nature. Calligrapher & stationery designer Calligraphette Co crafted a handwritten invitation suite that was gorgeously captured fall romance. The end result is a golden pink kiss of wind swept bay breezed hair with moments plucked straight out of your favorite dream. Fall is here, but can we really be that mad about it if this is how we toy with her??
