This free-spirited and romantic styled shoot from Simply Stellar Photography was inspired by the natural beauty and fluidity of water, and I fell in love when I saw it! It's hard to capture the essence of something so vast and awe-inspiring, but I think this does it justice.
A free-spirited pastel wedding inspiration shoot in Saguaro Lake, AZ
I dreamt of this shoot for months. Water is so beautiful, it adds such emotion and energy to an image and event, so to capture this soft, understated being during the season where lavender and other soft colors of the water come out, we waited until the perfection of spring. Spring has always been inspiring to me as a photographer. Not only is it breathtakingly gorgeous, but it signifies that a new season has begun and a new journey into marriage has started.
Ali is a free spirit with her heart in the ocean. It was such a perfect combination, putting her in this GORGEOUS Watters Penelope dress, complete with muted brown tones, and embellishing her in spring florals and pastel colors. It was so important to me to capture her fun nature, and inherent pull to the water, just as the water pulls at me.
This was also a fun little experiment to finally put to use my love of calligraphy, hand-crafting the menu myself from scratch, adding to the fantastic talent of those vendors so generous to help. – Hannah
