Oregon Bridal Portraits. This styled bridal shoot in Boardman, Ore., tells the story of a bride who just needs to escape, a time to reflect before such an important step in her life. Through the stark woods she finds herself lost in the peace and stillness of nature, and it’s in this moment that the true beauty of the bride can be seen.
The colors of the shoot offer a rich contrast to the raw landscape and backdrop. The deep sapphire green ribbon paired with the gold accents of the invitation lend itself to believe an organic but classic wedding is forthcoming.
Inspired by nature and the hope of what’s to come, the bouquet includes spider mums, lisanthus, wendy roses, lunaria, eucalyptus, foraged greens, privet berries, gomphrena, and parrot tulips.
Whether it’s her firey red hair or her enchanting green eyes, the bride looks completely spellbinding in front of the rows and rows of poplar trees.
She dons a fluttery two-piece gown that features an open back with a bow accent, and a bateau neckline with three-quarter length sleeves. The skirt is seamless and offers graceful movement as she explores the woods.
She floats amid the stately rows of poplars, light and airy like a fairy traveling from flower to flower.
She dons her long veil to cover her face and shadows her bouquet from the sunlight.
She reflects as she gazes off into the distance, surely admiring the beauty of nature that abounds in the quiet location. She draws in the solitude, casting away for just a few minutes the hustle and bustle of what promises to be a busy day.
This styled bridal shoot is an impeccable reminder to always take time for yourself before walking down the aisle. Wedding days are hectic and fraught with activity. Remember to steal away, center yourself, and embrace this beautiful moment of your life.
