Jenna and I have done a few styled shoots together and this one was one of the biggest that we have done. We went for it and asked some of our dream vendors to help with this shoot including Savannah Vintage Rentals, Lillian's China, Joshua Grotheer Designs and Ashley Curry. With summer just around the corner, a shoot on the beach just made complete sense. Tybee is a short drive from Savannah and gives an amazing escape to those of us who live in Savannah full time. I loved being able to add pops of color into the shoot with the amazing blue couch and green chair from Savannah Vintage Rentals and the fun vintage plates and glasses from Lillian's China. Joshua Grotheer out did himself with the amazing florals he provided for the shoot. From the table top vases filled with beautiful hydrangeas to the gorgeous overflowing bouquet he put together with my favorite bouquet design element: hanging ribbons! As the photographer for this shoot, I wanted to make sure that we had the best light that allowed for me to shoot both digital and film. Being a hybrid shooter, I have to take into account the sun, where it's sitting in the sky and how bright it is to ensure amazing photos. I also wanted to make sure that we had a gorgeous dress for this shoot, so Jenna and I found this beautiful Sarah Seven dress called "Hayes" to use from the amazing Ivory and Beau wedding boutique. I wanted a dress that was beautiful and flowed in the wind to really push the easy breezy beach feel. I hope that more people think about doing more than just their ceremony on the beach after checking out these inspiration photos. A wedding and reception would be beautiful and a perfect way to end a fantastic week at the beach.
