I’ve been meaning to finish writing and editing my unreleased photos from our Spell ‘Sunset Road’ campaign, and it was perfect timing that they also released their latest collection ‘Revolver’!
When doing the location scouting and research for this series, I wanted to take it to the roots of the desert and it’s historic scenes one might find in an old western movie, or some other country. When I found this mission through much online digging, it was one of the top places I knew we had to shoot at. It created the perfect backdrop to tell the story of a Desert Wildflower, ever roaming and becoming a part of that dusty, ethereal landscape.
We shot here first thing early in the morning, under the hot sun and blown by the breeze. We explored the inner courtyard and I fell in love with the old Mexican architecture. Once the sun hit golden hour, and silence fell upon the mission, we returned to the empty grounds to capture the magical light falling on the scene. I felt like I was in a movie, wearing the most breezy dress and dance-worthy fringe jacket to run around in. As always, that magical light never last long enough, and even though I wanted it to last forever for more photos, the sky faded into pastel pinks and lavenders, and the silhouettes of saguaro cactus and the mission towers stood against the sky.
It was a magical place that always inspires a dreamy story when I see the photos. And I’m so excited I finally got them on the blog to share them with you!
