The Traveling Dress
Scottsdale Senior Photographer
Papago Park, Arizona
One Dress. Twelve Photographers. Each with their own creative vision.
Hair & Makeup Artist: Sydney Peters
I recently moved to Arizona after living in California my entire life. This was my first shoot in Arizona, and I can’t tell you how good it felt to get outside and play with my camera again! I planned on photographing the dress while I was in California, but it arrived right in the middle of my move, so I brought it with me.
There is so much to explore in the Phoenix area, and Papago Park is truly a gem! I decided I wanted to keep this fairly simple (partly because I just moved and I’ve had little time on my hands). I loved the neutral landscape here, keeping Elizabeth and ‘the dress’ front and center. The sunset was beautiful with it’s hazy, warm glow. Did I mention that it was 110 outside? It was HOT! Shooting in the Arizona heat is no joke! haha!
Thank you Sydney for your beautiful hair and makeup artistry and helping me bring my vision to life. You are incredible! Elizabeth – you were so much fun to photograph! You are such a beautiful young woman (inside and out). xoxo Jana
I couldn’t decide if I liked color or black and white better…
