Lavender Fields

DETAILS: MINT DRESS (SIMILAR 33% OFF HERE) | LIPSTICK (SHADE: CANDY YUM YUM) || BECKAM’S LION ONSIE

I think this was one of my favorite shoots simply because I thought there was no way the pictures were going to turn out. I got held up finishing another shoot in Salt Lake until 8pm and it’s an hour and half drive to the Lavender Fields. Sunset was at 9:08 so I arrived in the dark. I almost turned around half way because I knew there was no way I would make it in time, but it was the last day they had it available before they harvested the lavender and I had been waiting weeks to go!

I got there around 9:20 and it was already dark. We shined our head lights on the field hoping to create some sort of light in hopes we could maybe get one good shot. I roamed through the fields bare foot as a storm rolled in, the wind was howling and a gorgeous thunderstorm behind the mountains lit up the night sky (don’t worry it was far far away so we weren’t in any danger). It felt like a scene from a movie. We literally shot these in 10-15 minutes before it started pouring rain and we ran to the car drenched! I was so excited when I got the pictures back to see so many had turned out (Emmy is amazing!). It was a magical few minutes in the fields, but I’m so bummed I didn’t get to spend more time there. I can’t wait to go back next year and really enjoy its beauty!

XX,
Christine
