Southwest Vibes || A Styled Shoot

What a better day than Cinco de Mayo to roll out our Southwest inspired styled shoot! Bright colors, cactus accents and natural elements create the perfect escape for anyone.

It was important to utilize the space that the venue had. Have you seen the bridal suite at Moore Ranch?! Any make up artist and hairstylist would love to work there! Cynda swept right in and started her magic with Summer. These two had really good chemistry and you could tell it was important to Cynda that Summer not only looked, but felt like the bride that day. It showed.


From Stephanie… This entire shoot started from a photo that I saw of turquoise painted antlers. I wanted to create a concept that incorporated antlers, cactus, turquoise, and greens, all mixed with yellow, oranges, and reds to have the dessert feel as the base. The overall look was only a portion of what I loved about this idea. The food was probably one of my most favorite items to work on. As a foodie myself, this menu could really have endless possibilities! What Lauren and the Hilton catering team came up with showed well in our shoot, and are items that all guests would love being served at events!
