More from the photographer, Michelle Boyd:
“As 2015 came around I began to wonder how I could dig deeper into photography and start capturing things with a keener, more sincere eye. I met Ginny Au last year at Erich McVey’s workshop and knew minutes into chatting with her that she saw things differently, and when I found out she offered one-on-one workshops for photographers, I didn’t even hesitate. I can say with all my heart it was the best thing I could have ever done–not only for my business, but even more so for my art.

Ginny has the incredible ability to look at you, your work, and your goals, and tell you exactly what needs to come next. She covered so much, from business strategy, refining my brand, how to direct a couple, and everything in between. She helped me understand the importance of authenticity when I’m shooting, and how to translate it across my entire body of work. She especially helped me to finally understand how to find a softness and strength that I’ve been striving to produce within my photography.

For our inspiration shoot, Ginny pulled the soft, delicate, and organic natures of both our florals and model and effortlessly paired them with a clean and modern kimono-styled gown for our bride. With natural makeup and a minimal hairstyle we were able to focus on the simplicity of the gown, our surroundings, and the delicate details throughout the shoot. The soft floral color palette included café au lait, cream, and deep burgundy, and was a perfect way to marry the softness of our bride with the strength of the forest.”
