Whimsical bridal editorial in the sand dunes of West Texas
It isn’t everyday that you get to do an amazing shoot in a location that not many people have even heard of. Being a West Texas wedding photographer and shooting weddings in Marfa and Marathon often, I travel out west and have always passed this gem in the middle of nowhere.
Who doesn’t love a photoshoot in sand dunes? And THIS DRESS?!? We were the first editorial to have worked with the Raincloud dress by Leanne Marshall, which is such an honor in itself. The Raincloud dress is a gray blue tone, with a hand-painted skirt and plunge neckline. Leanne Marshall really top the charts with this gown. Special thanks to Lovely Bride of Dallas for trusting us with this dress too 🙂
This sand dune bridal session was a blast to work on with such a great team! The Monahans Sandhills have always been on the top of my list to photograph at, so we took that idea and made this sand dune styled shoot happen. Adri with Moss Floral designed a gorgeous bird cage of dogwood in the sand, while Ashley of Chic and Pretty Events styled this lovely editorial.
Coming soon to The Bridal Theory magazine in January! (We are so excited to share more soon!)
