Extra time spent in the San Juan mountains this summer left us with a craving to use some of our favorite places as a backdrop for photography. We were thrilled when Derek and Rachel contacted us, asking for just that. We spent the day at 12,000 feet, poking around caves, wading up rivers, balancing on waterfalls, and picking our way through rockslides. Rachel did it all in a flower crown and a delicate BHLDN gown. April’s Garden, from right here in Durango, made floral creations that fit perfectly with the vision we all had for the shoot, achieving a look that was rugged but feminine, rich but dreamy.

We fell in love with Kyle and Amy immediately – their sweet nature, heart-felt sentiments, and abundant love.

We had the honor of teaming up with some absolutely incredible vendors in Ireland for this shoot at the Killruddery House in Wicklow county. Ciara O’Halloran of Style Serendipity created a magical scene for us to work in, full of rich plum hues and an air of elegant wild. We had an amazing day exploring the Killruddery grounds and making art with these talented vendors.

I ventured to the Peruvian Amazon in April with a non-profit organization, Mission Outfitter, to help capture and tell the story of the beauty people in the villages near Iquitos. We shared meals together. We sang songs, and we laughed heartily. I left feeling a bit like family, looking forward to the day I can go back.
