Seasonal Styled Shoot: Behind the Scenes

Good things were meant to be recreated . Earlier this year a group of us wild creatives got together and headed East to the middle of the Anza Borrego desert for a styled wedding shoot. It was dreamy and so much fun that Miss Lacey Haegen, our super talented makeup artist, started to rally us back for a round two a few months ago.

Instead of shlepping desert style we opted for some upscale architecture and went downtown San Diego to the Westgate Hotel.  Georgeous ornate details cover the hotel’s interior, very Italian, and oh so romantic.

 My inspiration for this shoot came from wanting to do a classic old school look but of course with more modern day flair.  The looks and details all had to scream romantic though- it would have been rude not to have.

Here are some of the preparing moments, close-ups and my talented friends doing their thing.  Love the concentration and commitment…. It was a special day and we can’t wait to share more!

Stay tuned! xx
