A couple of weeks ago during the polar vortex freezeout, I did what any self respecting, warm-blooded southern gal would- I threw a camera, a gown, and a bikini into a bag and fled New York to meet up with some lady friends for an impromptu girls' weekend and desert photoshoot in Palms Springs! One of my New Year's resolutions is to learn more about photography, so this was a great chance to play around...in the sunshine no less!
Silver Maple's metallic fibers shimmered away! (Spring 2012)
The Aleister gown's full, billowing train of silk charmeuse is perfect for whipping around in the wind! (Spring 2014) The pearlized lambskin and ivory tones play so well off of the natural landscape.
Our nude veil blends the palette quite nicely! I love this veil because it creates such a lovely, soft halo effect.
A big collaborative thanks to Merrill Melideo (aka the pretty face, who also happens to be one half of an incredible hubs and wife wedding photography team based out of LA), Elizabeth Dye, and Cassandra Quinn on styling. My favorite leather jacket courtesy of Logan Neitzel.
