From Loren Billington ...We live in the beautiful state of New Mexico, and the brides here don't embrace its natural desert beauty. We aimed to inspire brides to do just that with this shoot. The view from our foothills can be breathtaking with our expansive look over the city. We thought this would be a perfect place to photograph our bride. The dress is a vintage keepsake with a long sleeve floral lace overlay. It's adorned with a golden flor de lis brooch and chiffon, adding that extra drama every bride wants. We added a light curl to her hair to add volume and texture. Fresh greenery from the bouquet was also added simple natural look. We kept the jewelry and makeup to a minimum to draw more focus to her natural beauty. The bouquet is a very simple arrangement of peonies and greenery. We wanted it to look like she picked the flowers herself. The results were more than we could have hoped for. Simple but still surreal.
