Lindsay | Albuquerque Bridal Session

When Lindsay told me about how one of her favorite things to do with friends is dress up in vintage bridal gowns and go out on the town,  I knew I had to photograph her in the beautiful New Mexican landscape.  Lindsay found an old gown at a thrift store in Albuquerque that was hand-sewn for an old woman’s daughter.  Despite a few tears here and there, it is really quite stunning.

So Lindsay and I climbed atop a few New Mexican volcanoes and did a bridal session.  The scenery was engrossing, and all I wanted to do was incorporate the dusty browns and vivid blues in the photos.  I wanted to show Lindsay in this desolate, beautiful space.  It was such a fun two hours of shooting—almost Zen-like.   I wish I could take all of my brides to New Mexico to do our shoots.
