I always know it will be an adventure when traveling with my best buds and extraordinary photographers, Roger and Paul. For years, Paul (a phenomenal fashion photographer in Chicago), talked about wanting to do a fashion shoot at the White Sands National Monument. Not needing to ask us twice, Roger and I were in. Just an hour north of Las Cruces, New Mexico, are 275 miles of glistening white sands in the desert. Great wave-like dunes of gypsum made the perfect setting for a beautiful woman modeling a red wedding gown. It took your breath away; it was so beautiful – almost surreal. Never having an agenda, we found our way to Santa Fe and Taos meeting some great locals and capturing the beauty of this peaceful desert state.
