I could write a whole novel about how amazing this shoot is, but Nicole already did earlier when it was featured on Magnolia Rouge. So I'll just leave you with this: Shalyn Nelson is a photographic genius. Seriously. Her work is so gorgeous, and the group of vendors we got to work with on this were so amazing. We can't wait for you to see all the images below!

When Nicole mentioned doing a south west but modern shoot, we instantly knew what dress we wanted to use. Vienna by Blush by Hayley Paige is one of our favorite gowns ever. It has a gorgeous wrap bodice, with stunning extra low back and signature Hayley Paige beaded (that even have touches of turquoise!) This dress is seriously a show stopper. The hair and makeup by Lola Beauty was perfect, and we love how the soft up-do showcases the back of the gown.
