Our sweet friends Cassie and Arthur of cassiexarthur.com asked us to model for a desert inspired elopement shoot last month. We both have never been to the Valley of Fire so of course we said yes! It is about a 50 minute drive out of Las Vegas.
The first set of photos are the ones from the elopement shoot, and the second are a few personal shots that they got for our new dining room gallery wall, I am obsessed!
Okay so.. seeing a wedding band on Kyle’s finger gave me major butterflies. I didn’t think I would get emotional but imagining him as my husband in that moment was one of the sweetest feelings ever. The whole time I had the funniest thoughts in my head like “I wonder if he feels the same way right now?”, “Should we just do an elopement, weddings seem so stressful to plan” and “does he even like the way a black band looks on his finger?” haha my mind was racing.
Anyway, I felt confident that our genuine happiness and bond would result in some amazing shots. Let me know what you guys think!
I thought it would be fun to share 3 facts about Kyle and I for our 3 year anniversary. Here are the first ones that came to mind!
- Kyle is 8 days older than I am! His birthday is July 5th and mine is July 13th. We are both Cancers. (we can be really emotional, but love to be independent at the same time.)
- We met for the first time when we were 19 in Las Vegas at a house party. We did not start dating until a few years later.
- We have traveled more together in the past 8 months than we have in the past 3 years.
Below are my top 2 shots from the outfit change. I loved how the white and black stood out so I brought this white dress from Called to Surf and some wedges.
