Oh man, doesn’t a little surfing sound utterly delightful right about now?  Well, while we cannot bring you to the ocean, allow us to bring a little sun and surf fun to you through our vintage surfing inspired styled shoot, “Surf’s Up!”

“The inspiration for this shoot was simply color:  bright touches of color with lush greenery in a fun and whimsical setting.”

—Nicole Reece, Elegant Inspirations Events & Wedding Consultations
