I have been dying to shoot up in the Little Painted Desert or the Badlands since we moved to Northern Arizona. There is something about that landscape that is surreal, beautiful, and moving to me. The colors, the nothingness that holds so much, and the stillness is like nowhere else I’ve ever been. You feel like you’re separated from the world and have fallen into a painting. It’s truly one of the coolest places ever!
And then you throw Marissa and Chandler into the mix, and everything just gets more awesome. You might recognize these two from their beautiful Snowflake AZ LDS Temple wedding at the beginning of September. They were so sweet to drive up to come play in the Badlands with me, especially with their busy schedules of work and school! A few times that day I nearly called it off after two storms blew through town, but decided to risk it and go for it. And I’m so glad we went through with it! The soft clouds let in the most beautiful light, the land was crisp from the rain, and the breeze was just perfect.
I don’t know which outfit I loved more! The jacket and tie were so fun, but then this skirt was swishy and classy! These two have style!!
