The coast of Elk
Rocks soar craggily out of the water that washes around them carefully. The sand is moist and cold from the night; the day´s first rays of sunlight heat it up.
Fog is hanging sleepy over the beach; a soft breeze blows it back onto the sea.
As if she alighted from the water with the sun the bride welcomes this young day. Inhales salty sea air, enjoys the cool spray mist on her skin. It´s special start into a special day.
Again the coast of Elk, California, was the fantastic backdrop for this amazing Erich McVey Workshop.
With an extravagant dress and a hand full of fresh flowers event stylist Ginny Au created wonderful scenes of a modern bride for the participating photographers accordingly to her incomparable style.
A dreamlike cue state and the coast´s untouched landscape rounded off the picture.
Today photographer Donny Zavala shares his most beautiful shots of this workshop with us.
