Our story, like so many other stories begins with a dream… Our bride wishes to see the ocean for the first time in her life… she lingers in the yard of her family house, enjoying the warm sunshine but only one thought goes through her mind… the day she will finally see the ocean!

For this delicate outdoor bridal portraits we were inspired by this dress from Rembo Styling!
