Wooded Grove Bridal Portraits


There is something about the California light that draws photographers to its golden shores, oak-studded hillsides, striking deserts, abundant vineyards, and sun-dappled woodlands.  So its no surprise that many Canadian photographers seek out California's sun-filled landscapes during the cooler months, and Melissa Gidney, based out of both Vancouver and Los Angeles, is one of them.  She's also the founder of The Perfect Hideaway (a travel blog highlighting boutique and unique accommodations around the world) and I'm excited to be sharing some of her honeymoon finds here on Vale + Vine.  Stay tuned for more from Melissa and in the meantime, enjoy her southern California portrait session for this sweet bride + groom in one of California's classic wooded groves.
