Victor+Texa || Winter Elopement Styled Session || The Avenues - Rexburg, Idaho
I LOVE doing personal project, and a styled session embracing the Idaho winter snow was something that was on my checklist. So when Joni from Plush Floral said that she has extra flowers from an event, and if I wanted to use it for a project, I jumped on that opportunity so fast!
I stalked couples on Instagram, found THE perfect couple, set up wardrobe, and location - we were ready!
The day of the session came and we headed out towards the mountain. When we got there, got dressed, and was ready to start shooting, you could see the snowstorm coming at a crazy speed! Hoping for few shots, I directed Victor+Texa to their spot, but as I put the camera to my eyes, I couldn’t see anything - that’s how bad and fast this snowstorm came. With 20mph wind and snow pelting us sideways, I wasn’t going to let them freeze to death for some photos. So we got back into the car, and headed towards town. The 40 minutes ride back felt like forever, with me anxiously trying to find an alternative location.
I finally called The Avenues and they were gracious enough to let us shoot in their gorgeous natural light studio last minute! I obsessed over Joni’s talent and Victor+Texa’s love, and we spent the next hour shooting and laughing.
Although we weren’t able to have the “Winter Elopement” we hoped for, we were able to create such beautiful + sassy images all thanks to Victor and Texa, Joni, and The Avenues. Serious props to Victor+Texa, they were so patient and kind and ended up spending three hours with me, most of it sitting in the car.
