Sachi - A Desert Bridal Session

As summer rolls on, we can't help but reminisce on one of our most beloved bridal sessions. Set against the gorgeous New Mexico desert, our bride/model Sachi was nothing short of an absolute Southwestern goddess. Bright florals and succulents sourced from a local backyard paired with an intricate wedding gown and a cake topped with a cactus heart made this golden hour vision something straight out of a dream. New Mexico is pure magic and this extremely special bridal session is the perfect tribute to our stunning home state.

waves of indigo, a styled shoot out

Over the weekend, we hosted our first ever styled shoot out! A wickedly talented team of incredible vendors and models came together and helped make my crazy wild indigo theme shoot come to life.

I met a group of super amazing fellow photographers, who traveled from all over New Mexico to come to this shoot! We split up the day into three different parts. Starting first with details, photographing things like the stationary suite made by the amazing Julie Haider Design, florals and set by Stephanie Yardman Floral Design and custom made mini French Macarons by New Mexico Pie Company.

We then moved to the bridal portion with both of our stunning models who were completely made over by the amazing Britney-Rae Sanchez and nail design by Bridget Herrera! We wrapped up the day with a vintage bed and with some gorgeous boudoir images of one of our models, Christina. It was such a whirlwind of fun and a super humbling experience getting to work with both the vendors, and attendees! I'm so excited to share these images with you!

Fatima | Regal Chic Vineyard Bridal Shoot | Casa Rondena | Albuquerque, NM Photography

A couple weeks ago, some of Albuquerque's most lovely and talented vendors got together and created absolute magic. The inspiration came from the timeless trend of illusion lace wedding gowns seen on the runway this season (also seen on Kate Middleton and Kim Kardashian). It was a dream to photograph such a stunning, one of kind piece designed by Jasmine Bridal.

The dress, stunning Fatima, enchanting florals, out of this world beautiful diamonds, then adding a twist of classic yet bold bridal hair & makeup, plus the ever so gorgeous vineyard we shot at and the outcome is absolutely majestic.
