One of my favorite shoots last year was this impromptu beach bridal editorial that I planned. I was so proud when it was picked up and published on Glittery Bride earlier this year. Inspired by the vast California coastline, this seaside bridal portrait session aimed to capture the natural and earthy tones of the shore. Natural green, blue, and earthy tones were a huge inspiration for this shoot. The statement piece was a Mia Riley dress with a flowing handkerchief skirt with sequined horsehair edging, which created beautiful movement and an ethereal quality to the photos. Amanda of Events By Condie created a large overflowing bouquet with lots of natural greenery and a striking white protea. The bride’s hair and makeup were kept very natural to fit the theme and paired the look with a delicate handmade gold hairpiece by Acute Designs. In addition, Line Avenue Calligraphy created a beautiful organic invitation suite on handmade paper. Kaity of My Clementine Photography who is a second shooter of mine, was the best model for this beach bridal editorial!
All photos were taken with a Contax 645 on Fuji 400H film and scanned by Goodman Film Lab.
