California Beach Wedding Inspiration by Madalina Sheldon
 
The sea, once it casts its spell, holds one in its net of wonder forever.
— Jacques Yves Cousteau

The sea allows us a moment to escape. To feel free from the burdens that we carry. A lightness comes over us and we are taken to a place and time where our souls can be free. A place where our hearts open to love and life's infinite possibilities. Today's beautiful Beach Wedding editorial, captured by Madalina Sheldon, has this sentiment perfectly captured. Full of light and softness, this shoot inspires both our minds and our hearts! 

From designer Anda Ambrosini of Mika Design Studio: "Madalina Sheldon is a childhood friend whom I live half the world apart from. Last year we went on an amazing trip through Italy, where she introduced me to the world of film photography, and I instantly fell in love. A lot has happened in the past year and through this world, I discovered my love for styling.

Serendipity brought her to my home in California this summer so I decided to style a shoot so she could bring a slice of the coast back to Germany with her.

This shoot was all about the textures, tones and contrast of the capricious summers of California's Lost Coast. I wanted to put together a scene that is full of movement and light, adorned with handmade details and florals foraged from bushes and dry plants that grow right around the beach where we shot."

In a constant search for genuine beauty, fine art wedding photographer Madalina translates through her images everything her senses whisper to her.

Based on simple tools like available light and film, her imagery is honest, artful and evocative. Her photographic accompaniment of weddings and elopements is gentle and discreet. Madalina aspires to sensitize through her imagery for the natural and evanescent aspects of life.
