splendor on the shores of the caspian sea

I’ve seen post-wedding couples portraits (and I’m a huge fan) but I’ve never seen pre-wedding portraits except bridals! Today’s inspiration shoot from Olga Plakitina is a pre-wedding portrait session for Ulya and Orhan and it’s a stunner. Set against the Caspian sea, the blue dress (handmade by the bride!) and stunning floral designs set the scene for love and romance between this bride-to-be and her groom!

From Olga Plakitina – “This inspiration shoot was a pre-wedding session for Ulya and Orhan. They’re such a beautiful and harmonious couple! We shot on the shores of the Caspian Sea against scenic rocks. There were salt crystals in the bride-to-be’s crown and the gentle, blue dress complemented the ocean atmosphere and natural style. The day ended with a beautiful sunset!”
