rachel and rico in vegas

// Lifestyle, Love

oh the tangled web that gets weaved on the internets. 

so a long time ago, you’d be able to see my roommate erica and I cuddled up on the couch with tears in our eyes. watching another wedding video from Aqua Vivus.  i have never and still am not the girl who day dreams about weddings and has a secret binder of mine all planned out. but these guys, their work is just incredible (i just refrained from typing “increds” who am i?!) and we had a rule, when AV put up a new video…we HAD to tell the other and watch it. so then we found out about Studio Castillero.  omfg(osh). and since then I have continued to ooze and smooze over their work.

then whaddya know, both Aqua Vivus and Studio Castillero shot my roommates wedding. (and killed it) ….so i had the chance to meet and chat with these fine folks in the flesh.

then we became friends.

then i said, hey we’re gonna be in vegas at the same time…naturally we know what needs to happen, i need to shoot you guys.

so, after a late night out we tippy toed our way out to the sickest spot and i was all oooh ya, screaming my pants off so super pumped to shoot in the desert.

and that is the tangled wonderful web that led me to shooting rachel and rico in the gorgeous vegas desert. 

and their lives flashed before their eyes.


and whadyya know, Im out in the desert again today. visiting my family and shooting a small handful of projects down in Arizona this week. shooting the fabulous promise tangeman today and a few others coming up this week.

and PS..I’m totally wearing shorts.
