This couple wanted to do a minimalist bohemian-inspired day-after shoot, that they felt really encompassed their personalities. They are both very earthy and bohemian. They grow their own organic vegetables and have chickens in their backyard. John is an active missionary and traveled to Africa in February to teach an orphanage how to develop and maintain a hydroponic garden and pond whose eco-systems work together to provide fresh fish and vegetables. How awesome is that!? So much more lovely to see. Read More
