White Sands – Pure Aesthetics
Breathtaking shootings among unaffected nature always let our hearts skip a beat. But these pictures shot by Heather Hawkins Photography from the spotlessly white desert of New Mexico show such a pureness and beauty like we´ve never seen it before.
Stylist Lindsey Zamora and producer Naomi Pak created a magical world reduced to the essence to put the extraordianry wedding dresses into focus.
Naomi Pak told us: “We allowed the otherworldly landscape of White Sands National Monument to inspire every detail of this bridal shoot. Situated in the Tularosa Basin of New Mexico, miles of beautiful white dunes are formed from selenite crystals broken down into fine grains of sand.
This setting evokes a sense of calm and understated beauty, and is seemingly unmarked by time. As we shot at sunrise and sunset, both the sky and the sand were washed in subtle shades of pink, orange, blue and purple. We chose to forgo florals and most accessories to showcase our unique environment.
The images captured on film by Heather Hawkins are a celebration of timeless, unembellished beauty, as embodied by the glow of a bride and the simple but stunning terrain of White Sands.”
With this scenery Lindsey Zamora and Naomi Pak made their masterpiece, eternalized on incomparable pictures by film-photographer Heather Hawkins. Come with us and enjoy the easy tranquility that her fantastic pictures spread…
