Beach Inspired Photo Shoot by Ben Q. Photography
August 9, 2012

The beautiful beachy setting, the punchy pastels and the decorative table design make a full blown matrimonial masterpiece! I am obsessed with just about everything in this photo shoot. I love how the bride and groom change from wedding wear to a beach casual look that gives the shoot an entirely different dimension. The full gallery of photos is a must, and bundles of thanks goes to Ben Q. Photography for sharing this work of art with us!

From Ben Q. Photography... So there is this lake right by our house that we call our little piece of heaven. At a certain time, the sun hits the water and sand and it kind of looks like California. The gorgeous natural light of that locale inspired this shoot. We wanted to show the world that north Texas could look really cool and beachy too! Our color palette was "punchy pastels," so we used coral, peach, lime green and tangerine. Even the groom wore a bold-colored suit jacket! We played up the beach scene by adding sea shells dyed to fit the color scheme and a rustic wood table that resembled driftwood. The styled shoot begins with a sweet ceremony beneath an arbor of wood. Then the two sit at their stylish tablescape complete with mini ruffled cakes at each setting. Instead of a traditional reception, they decide to take a dip in the water to celebrate after some yummy grapefruit sorbet.
