I recently received this photo shoot inspired by the beauty and culture of Africa and fell in love with it instantly. Photographed by Lauri Levenfeld of Zoom Photography in San Francisco, it tells the story of childhood sweethearts who fall in love and who years later become man and wife. This shoot is filled with vibrant colors and moving imagery. The couple is gorgeous (as both children and adults!) and you can really feel the love between them. Enjoy these stunning images and thank you for sharing with us!
The one question we are still all waiting for is what will the royal wedding of Prince William and Kate Middleton look like? So instead we have put together three different options of what we think they might be.
Blue and White: Inspired by her non-traditional engagement ring. We took the blue and white hues and made it sparkle.

Crystals and Jewels: Every wedding has its beauty and glamour and for the future princess, Kate Middleton, nothing less will do. For her lucky day the princess has more than 80 different tiaras to choose from. This inspiration board is inspired by the crystals and jewels of the soon to be princess Kate’s tiara.
