Arizona desert love

What do you do when it’s 100 degrees plus in Arizona in the summer?  Shoot anyways!

This is Max and Camille and I photographed their actual wedding at Stonebridge Manor last fall.  They are adorable and were so gracious to agree to be models in this styled shoot (who doesn’t want an excuse to wear their wedding dress again, right?!).

Cactus is finally popular (I’m an Arizona native so it’s always been popular with me) and is on trend right now and I wanted to do something rustic and bright and fun and that embraced all of the textures of Arizona.  I shoot in the raw desert all the time, but this was fun to set up amongst this old building in the middle of a mountain for some added texture.

I admittedly still have soil and some cactus needles in the back of my car from hauling a good amount of these potted plants to the shoot.  Totally worth it!
