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.
