Behind the Scenes – Rose Gold Wedding Ideas in Bridal Guide Magazine

Making art is about taking a journey.  This shoot, has had quite the journey over the last two years and to that end…yes, making art requires unrelenting patience.  Two years ago we traveled to Southern Utah, with two of the most inspiring photographers I’ve had the pleasure to know.  With a common vision and shared passion we embarked on a journey to express all the creative energy bubbling up inside of us.  Sepia had long been an inspirational concept for me artistically and I wanted to somehow translate it into a tangible moment.

All began with this Pinterest board, where I gathered my thoughts….

Rose gold foil for the wedding invitations was the driving force behind the look.

Southern Utah light is magical…I’ve never been to Venice, but I can’t imagine anything better.
