The Spirit Sands is a breathtaking setting of large sand dunes and rolling hills that Lani and I had been dreaming about shooting for an editorial for quite some time. We were awe-struck by the soft palette and the simplicity of the sand dunes which became our main inspiration. Due to the location we wanted to keep this shoot fairly simple and understated but quite elegant at the same time. We chose dresses with intricate details, clean lines, and flowing fabrics and paired the look with loose, oversized and muted flower arrangements. The hair was styled with beachy waves, and the make up was very natural with a beautiful red lip to tie the elegant, yet simple, look together.

It turned out to be one of the hottest days of the summer on the day of the shoot, and we had to hike a total of 6km to and from our vehciles armed with heavy wedding dresses, buckets of flowers, camera equipment, a ladder, and makeup supplies. Needless to say, we were all dripping wet and exhausted when we got to our location. Luckily, Jessica (our wonderful makeup artist) and Kelli (the beautiful model) were troopers.
