I've always been of the thought light is important to a great shot or series of shots.  Case in point is the work of Yanitza Ninett, a photographer out of Geneva, Florida.  She took the same bride all dressed in red and posed her in different light patterns--stunning.  Says Yanitza about putting together this editorial, " This is a styled shoot inspired by natural beauty. I took advantage of the natural light, at different times, to create a variety of the scenarios I chose for this shoot. It portrays beauty in all the natural ways, and it is complemented by the colors of mother nature . . . ."

From the lightest mint to deep emerald tones, if you're inspired by green in any way you're definitely influenced by connecting to elements of the earth.  Green themes have a lot to do with nature and things growing.  Getting an earthy look may mean having a floral crown made and ditching a traditional veil, zoning in on a diaphanous and flowing gown.  The forest or woods are the perfect backdrop for a Boho wedding.  Below are inspirations for all that and more . . . .

Gotta admit I got seriously hungry just editing this post!  Which explains why I can't get through a decent cookbook to schedule a week of menus for the hubby.  This medley of images by Amanda Thompson of Mermaid Lake Photography is a salute to ice cream lovers everywhere.  Adding it as the main theme for your wedding is totally original!  It's not only the pastel colors and flavors of ice cream here to zone in on but the yummy hotdog and hamburger selections.  Amanda says about working on this project: "This styled photo shoot was unlike anything I have ever seen. Nance's Rustic Rentals and Events and I have worked together many times-- this one by far blew the rest out of the water. I mean come on, an ice cream photo shoot?! Could it get any more amazing?!?! Check it out for yourself! . . . ."
