There’s little more gorgeously grey than a cloudy day on the Oregon coast, and this Cannon Beach bridal session is its most lovely compliment. The foggy rock formations cast beautifully behind the deliciously soft details of a Mywony gown, all stunningly captured by Georgia Ruth Photography—perfection! It’s enough to make you wish all bridal sessions were dusted with just a little bit of this captivating mist!
From Georgia Ruth Photography:
“Many people imagine the beach as a sunny and vibrant place, and in the summer that’s something that we get a small glimpse of here in Oregon. But for the majority of the year, the Oregon coast enchants us with it’s deep colors, rich tones, and stormy weather. So it was no surprise to me that a gloomy and rainy day would be the setting for these bridal portraits. Even though rain is a common part of Oregon life, it’s not something many brides want as a part of their wedding day. I was optimistic about the challenge of capturing the scene on film and excited for the opportunity to showcase just how beautiful it can be to embrace the weather and natural beauty of a cloudy Oregon day.
The clouds and rain only added to the allure of the dusty reds and muted blue-greens that made up the color palette for this editorial. Our stylist, Tristan Needham, curated gorgeous elements and colors that wonderfully represented the beauty of the Oregon coast. The flowing gown, soft and deep tones of the bouquet, and hand crafted engagement ring all beautifully complimented the jutting rocks that are a main feature of Cannon Beach. It was truly a pleasure to work with such an amazing creative team and to be able to learn from some of the best in the industry while doing so. The knowledge and experience I gained through this workshop was invaluable, and in the process I was blessed to be able to create some of my most favorite imagery.”
