More from Jennifer of Salt Harbor Designs:

I wanted to prove that the beach can speak for itself in terms of design, so we chose an inspiration board that expressed the elements of the ocean in a clean and free way. We let the water, waves, and wind dictate our style and the shoot as a whole. The board seemed to embody the dream-like nature of the ocean and the movement of the environment, so we sought these things in everything from the fabric to the lighting, wardrobe, and design pieces. We began at 5 am, making the most of the light and the sunrise. It was truly a morning out of a dream – the weather perfect, the light incredible, and the wind just enough to add movement to all images.

We hoped that the result would be something that felt like a dream with a loose story-line and images only the imagination can create. I think the project made us all take a second look at the place in which we live and realize how lucky we are to have this incredible resource just down the street!
