Earth Elements | Water Themed Bridal Session

Earthy romantic bride

For this year's Erich McVey Workshop in Bend, Oregon, Ginny Au pulled inspiration from the four elements. Designing four stunning wedding looks all based on the the powerful beauty of nature. Earth, Wind, Water, and Fire. Each element evokes emotions and a gorgeous raw esthetic representative of the natural world around us. We are starting out this four part series with water. Water is known for an understanding, trusting nature, devotion, mercy, forgiveness, modesty, and compassion. If this describes you to a tee then a water themed bridal session may be in order.
Be sure to see more this stunning  shoot and gorgeous photos captured by Erich McVey in the full gallery here. And stay tuned for Earth, Wind, and Fire, soon to come.
