From Kylie Martin Photography – “This session is called Whelve. Whelve: (v) to bury something deep; to hide. It’s one of the many ancient words Ginny Au used as inspiration for the inspiration shoots at the Erich McVey Workshop and it’s my favorite.

I love the movement in this dress and the softness of the light. This is one of the most enchanting bridal gowns I have had the experience of photographing and the backdrop of the ocean just adds to all the beauty!”
