I want to become a society lady Rockin' a new rock?!

This week, we’re starting you off with the inspiration shoot we put together for our Shoot This Not That workshop, which took place last month. We hosted a group of photographers to discuss and practice techniques for getting their work published! These images are perfect for those of you gals planning weddings for this summer! Navy, blush and gold? Heart it. Infinity.

To work with our romantic nautical look, we decided to use an old oar as our guest book! Attendees signed in a gold pen and it’ll make a great wall ornament!

Our groom’s bow tie is from Starboard Clothing. (I LOVE their selection of men’s bow ties, with really unique patterns!). Our bride’s sandals are total glam “Gold Cascade” from Fibi and Clo. They are crazy sexy sandals. If you are having a beach wedding and are looking for a bridal sandal, these are perfect.
