Dreamy Lavender and Sage Desert Wedding Styled Shoot

Part of being a professional photographer is continuing your education and growth.  Nothing compares to the week long training at WPPI (Wedding & Portrait Photography International) which happens every February in Las Vegas, Nevada.

Hailing from the Mid-West, it is not often I get to experience the soft, dreamy colors and unique landscape of the desert.  All those glorious textures and muted soft hues of lavender and sage set against the mountains shimmering off in the distance cannot be described in words.  You have to experience them for yourself to believe the grandeur and beauty.

This styled shoot was organized by the talented Ryann Lindsey at Cactus Joe’s, a unique cactus nursery which also serves as a wedding venue.  Talk about different?  The gown by Sophia Rose Bridal was a one of a kind handmade, to die for creation.  So show her some love y’all.  A gorgeous Susie Saltzman ring was truly the piece de resistance of the entire shoot.  The stunning diamond was so unique and crystal clear it took on the color of its surrounds.

Beside getting the opportunity to shoot in a new location, I was able to meet and work with some amazing creatives.  Here’s a big shout out to Justin Robinson from Virginia @justinrobinson, Jacqueline Bawden from Las Vegas @Jacquelinebawdenphoto and Les Atkins from North Carolina @lesatkinsphotography.  These fellow photographer’s were a joy to hang out with and are extremely talented artists.

As you will see in the images below, we shot from full sun till the light faded over the mountains and we were cast into total darkness.  They sky went from an incredible glowing lavender to blue black in mere moments.

I hope you enjoy these images, and make sure you check out the awesome vendors who contributed to this shoot.

Until next time.
