Remarks from the photographer: “With the popular trend of colored wedding gowns this season, I wonder: What if a bride made her gown something blue?

“I set out with my friend/model, Kerry, to create a bright, bold and colorful bridal styled shoot with the color blue as our inspiration.

“This shoot happened to involve a DIY-marathon. Kerry and I made the bouquet and floral crown from flowers hand picked from the grocery store. We chose Avila Beach as our setting. With an expansive pier, romantic beach, and colorful beach-town storefronts I think it provided the perfect backdrop. My favorite moments were captured while we explored beneath the pier. A former dancer and figure skater, Kerry provided an energy and radiance that perfectly complemented the light of the setting sun.”
