Grapevine Plaza Wedding: Ivan + Laura – Las Cruces Wedding Photographer

Ivan and Laura tied the knot at summer’s end. They were surrounded by their families and friends as they became husband and wife. The day was beautiful! Here are some of my favorite photos from their wedding at the Grapevine Plaza.

Here are the kids in their Halloween costumes.
Skye enjoyed her first lollipop (thank Opa) and is now very aware of everything candy related.
Melody thought about being a lot of different things this year: a bat, a cowboy, the tooth fairy. She decided on Rapunzel.

Hauntingly Beautiful: Creative Collaborated Styled Shoot – Las Cruces Photographer

Yesterday was pretty rad.
Dia de los Muertos styled shoot from Taylor'd Photography | www.taylordphoto.com

I’m SO excited to share this Dia de los Muertos styled photo shoot with you today.

As a creative professional sometimes you have to be a little selfish. By that I mean you have to look out for your personal vision and give your soul a creative adrenaline shot in the bum every now and then. For me, that means creating and executing projects simply for my enjoyment. And that is exactly what this shoot is about.

One day I received an email from Allison. She had recently graduated from a makeup academy, just relocated to the southwest area and was interested in making contacts and looking for creatives to collaborate with. Around this time I had the itch. It was time, far overdue actually, for another styled shoot. So I started thinking, “What’s something fun I can work on with a makeup artist?” The sugar skull look seemed like the perfect project for the Halloween season.

A ton of emails and phone calls later a creative team was assembled to tackle the Dia de los Muertos with a bridal twist theme I had in mind.

Allison majorly rocked the sugar skull makeup.

Sandy from Model Movement helped find and select our model, Bianka Cervantes, and attended the shoot for some posing coaching. Sandy is a seasoned pro and it was so cool to watch her in action.

My dear friend, mentor and former professor Svala owns and operates DustyDesert, a vintage clothing store on Etsy. I don’t know where she finds this stuff but all of the clothes in her shop are as chic as she is. Thank you so much for providing our team with this 1950’s era gown.

I love the sweetness of the dress in contrast to the stark makeup look.

Of course the look would not be complete without the floral crown which was contributed by Barb’s Flowerland. When I approach working with other professionals I strongly believe in getting out of their way and letting them do what they do best. I told Barb the general idea of the shoot and she and her staff came up with this floral crown. Don’t you love the traditional marigolds they included?

Thank you everyone who came together to make this project a reality. I can’t wait for the next crazy idea we can come up with!

If you are a creative professional who’d like to mix it up send me an email and let’s start brainstorming! Or if you have a fabulous idea for your own styled shoot let’s make it happen. Like I said earlier, I need more of these shoots in my life and would love to work with you to bring your vision to life.
