In Home Elopement in Las Cruces Pt.2

This is my last blog post from New Mexico!! I'm so sad! I really can't thank Andrea and Stephanie enough for allowing me to be a part of such an amazing few days in New Mexico. I got to see a state I had never been to. Meet a bunch of photographers who I now consider to be friends and meet a bunch of hot people that were a pleasure to photograph. It was such a great experience!

If you haven't been to New Mexico you need to go like NOW! It's such a nice place and everyone was so sweet! And....Mexican food. I meaaaaaaan do you need another reason to go? As usual the vendors are below..check them out on Instagram!

In Home Elopement in Las Cruces Pt.1

New Mexico seems to be the home of hotties nationwide. I'm completely obsessed with all of the models that we had throughout our stay in New Mexico. These two cuties are actually boyfriend and girlfriend....how cute is that??

Meet Randy and Brittany! I'm completely obsessed with how beautiful they are as a couple.

Alex & Ben - Couple's Session at White Sands National Monument

I have had the pleasure of photographing these two several times! I photographed both their engagement and elopement in New York. Ben was transferred to El Paso so when I found out I was heading that way I knew I HAD to message them to see if they were down to come to this magical place. We took some sunset shots and I love that they knew they didn't even have to ask if they could bring their dogs because they know I'm obsessed with animals. Jeff got to hold onto the pups and love them during the shoot and I got to frolic around with one of my favorite couples! Fun fact: The same white dress Alex wore in the second half of the shoot is the same dress she eloped in a few years prior!!

 

Styled Elopement at White Sands National Monument

Alright guys! It's the moment you have all been waiting for!! I know you saw these hotties on my Instagram and Facebook page. And to answer your question....yes these people are real and they really do make people this hot in real life! 

The White Sands National Monument needs to be on everyone's bucket list is it isn't already. It has the most beautiful sunsets I have ever seen in my life and they're 360 degree sunsets. The sand is amazing and feels like moon sand because the sand is actually made of crushed gypsum! The sand was cool to the touch even though it was hot as balls in New Mexico. While we were shooting they were actually testing rovers for Mars because it's the closest to Mars' sand in the entire world. The White Sands has 180 species of animals that only habitate at White Sands. Okay...now that this sounds like a third grader's history report...let's look at some hotties!!

The Styling team ( 3 Sisters El Paso ) did such an amazing job putting all the details together! It looks like a wedding right out of Urban Outfitters or something!

Chelsea is probably one of the most beautiful people I have ever seen and Cody ain't so bad either!

Sooooo like anyone else think they should get married for real?
