Guys... Deming, New Mexico may not seem like much, but I fell even more in love with New Mexico when we pulled up to Keeler Farms the day of this shoot! I mean, look at it!! Now I want to have a second wedding and I want to have it here! Also, my husband, who likes to tag along on my styled shoots, has decided he wants to buy a farm :D
Anyways, ugh, I'm so excited about this shoot! A few months ago, I had the idea to highlight a few wedding venues in southern New Mexico in a blog post, because they are hard to find!! I wanted to show brides that beautiful weddings are achievable in our little corner of the southwest :) I approached a few photographers about real weddings they had shot down here, and little did I know, Erin, from Sunshine Picture Project, was working on a similar project!
Erin told me she was working with Kursty from Keeler Farms on putting together a styled shoot to show off their Keeler Farms as a new premier wedding and event venue. I told her I would love to feature it on my blog when they were done, but I also snuck into the convo that if they were looking for a florist, I was available! Haha, I was super excited when they asked if I would help with their project! Even if that meant I was 38 weeks pregnant and literally praying I wouldn't go into labor until after the shoot! Haha! Love these behind-the-scenes shots that Erin got :)
Okay, so now onto the real pretties!! Kursty did an amazing job styling everything! It was so fun to use such bright colors, and Erin did an incredible job at capturing it all!
It was so fun to have some of my friends be our models for the shoot! Mandy and Russell did an amazing job!
You can see why I can't wait to work with any of these girls again! They are amazing and I'm so glad to have met them and made some new friends with this project that all speaks to our passion!
