What I’m here to tell you is: it’s completely doable and here’s how.

Purple Wedding Palette Inspiration

Okay so I’ll admit it- purple is not one of my favorite colors, but it’s one of the most common wedding colors I see each year with my brides.

Desert Romance

Couples Session in Red Rock Canyon
When Mariola and Josh agreed to meet me in the Red Rocks, I was beyond excited. I had visited the Mojave Desert for the first time last year and had been DYING to shoot there ever since. Being an east coast girl, I don’t often get to have cascading mountains, red sand, or cacti gracing the backdrops of my photos.
