sweet isabella. day 9.
what a snuggle bug this girl is! she wanted to stay wrapped up and in mom's arms...and really, who could blame her! she gave us a few great moments, though!
isabella has stolen a bit of my heart!

{desert romance} | kalispell wedding photographer

the past 4 days, jeremie and i traveled to las vegas for WPPI. it's a huge photography convention. packed full of vendors, speakers, information, learning and FUN!! we had an amazing time. there were so many highlights on the trip for me...SO many!! but i think one big highlight for both jeremie and i was the opportunity to do a photo session in the desert.
i was contacted by jamie of jagg photography, who was also attending wppi, and she asked if we would be available to do a session for them. jamie and richie will be getting married march 20th and decided that they wanted to bring the wedding dress along. it was just too good of an opportunity to pass up!! so, of course, we jumped at the chance to do photos for them...really, how often does a couple from montana get the chance to photograph a couple from north carolina in the desert!........and i'm so glad we did!! it was beautiful there and jamie and richie were amazing!! we had so much fun with them and it was wonderful to meet them!

since it was the first time that richie was seeing jamie in her wedding dress, we took a minute for them to meet at the hotel before we headed out.

then we headed out to red rock canyon. WOW! it was so beautiful. i'm so used to the snowy mountains of montana and the hues of blue........but the red rocks, red dirt and muted, natural colors just took my breath away! we arrived just as the sun was leaving us, but we managed to get some beautiful shots of them. can you believe it snowed the night before there? crazy, huh??
jamie was a bit chilly, but such a trooper!!
and richie are so in love, so fun and a pure joy to be around.

i love this next moment that jeremie captured sooo much!

thank you so much jamie and richie!! jeremie and i truly had a wonderful time! we wish you all the love and happiness in the world. we hope you wedding day is all you dream of and more!! xo
