Styled Shoot: White Sands Wonderland

We started off with just two main ideas in mind: White Sands and a cape. The rest was magic. We immediately knew the perfect photographer for this shoot. The lovable, Sarah Lotus. Learn more about her and her photography here. This girl is so cool and so full of energy all the time, that you wouldn’t imagine she is a full time nurse (uh, yeah how crazy is that?) Next, was reaching out to our model, Skye Weatherly. We have been wanting to collaborate with her for a long time and plans never seemed to align. The universe was obviously waiting for this moment! Ms. Tiffany Martinez came on board to work her makeup magic. Her too; super sweet, down to earth, and definitely knows her stuff. 

Dive right in…

We decided to use this beautiful Allure gown. 
This gown features elegant beaded embroidery with a sheer illusion bodice leading to an A-line skirt. 
We wanted to keep it super simple. With the only pop of color being her lip color and the bouquet.  You already have a beautiful backdrop, why add anything else?
This is where everything really started coming to vision. Sarah and Skye worked so great together!
Where did we find such a cool cape you might ask? In the middle of 100 alterations, Roxanne (owner of Renee’s Bridal)  literally whipped it up in less than and hour. AND just like that, we are now in the cape-making business. If that’s not a boss move, I don’t know what is. 
Can we talk about this fierce smokey eye/dark lip combo? LOVE
The bouquet pictured was also made in-house. White Sands has strong regulations against bringing live plants on to the grounds and of course, we very much wanted to respect that.
Lashes for days!
Skye says she normally doesn’t like smiling in pictures, but doesn’t she have a gorgeous smile!
The rest of the shoot was all fun and games
This shot was ALL Skye’s idea and she KILLED it. All she needed was a cigarette and a cool leather jacket.
Okay. So Skye was such a champ. By this time, the sun was gone and it was freezing. You could never tell by looking at these pictures, right?

Thank you so much ladies for bringing our vision life. It was an honor working with such a strong-spirited group of women. Even better, everyone collaborated so well. We look forward to many projects to come!
