The desert landscape and towering red mesas of Ghost Ranch, New Mexico was the scenic backdrop for this next wedding editorial dreamed up and beautifully styled by Lavel Marie Photography, Black Bow Events, and a talented team of vendors.
They showcased the wild beauty of the desert with a gorgeous collaboration that featured bright, bold blooms and the prettiest boho bridal look. The RL model couple were celebrating their reunion after his five-month deployment, which makes this shoot even MORE romantic if that's at all possible. Congrats you two, and thank you for your service! Catch all the love below + in the full gallery.
From Lavel Marie Photography: As photographers, we are often on a search to find a unique love story we can feature in photographs. I met Diane about 3 years ago and right away I knew I wanted to capture her and Bobby’s love story. They met about four years ago. Bobby is in the Military and was very intrigued with Diane the moment he saw a picture of her. He sought her out for about two years before she gave him a chance. Once he got her attention and had their first date, the rest was history.
Being in the military, deployments just come with the territory, and after Thanksgiving of last year Bobby was deployed for almost five months in Iraq. This was easily, the most challenging time in their relationship but they remained committed to one another through it all. Upon Bobby’s return, Diane and his dog Jacks were all elated to be united again.
a styled love story
I wanted to do something special for this reunion, so I asked Diane if I could photograph their love story with a styled shoot. Happily, they were both on board! You cannot deny their love, just look at them!
