Now that I am finally caught up on my wedding postings, I have a chance to post some personal stuff, and it has been accumulating so get ready :-).

 

Back in April my friend, Phuong, came to visit me.  We have been friends for a very long time and I hadn't seen her in 10 years, so it was a wonderful visit.  She stayed for almost 5 weeks and in that time we just had to make her play dress-up and do a couple of trash-the-dress shoots at some fabulous Arizona locals!

 

We had an absolute blast doing these shoots and quite a bit of planning went into them.  We wanted them to be very haute couture with heavy makeup, sexy stockings, costume jewelry, a really hip black wig with blue highlights mixed in, oh ... and some peacock feathers thrown in as a headdress for good measure :-).  Our backdrops would be the Grand Canyon and the Superstition Mountain Range.  The Grand Canyon shoot was amazing and Phuong was so excited to shoot there, but that excitement was tempered as the sun began to drop ... it was freezing cold.  You would never know it by the photos though.  She looked stunning in every image!!

 

Stay tuned for our month-long adventure as "Tina and Phuong take on Arizona" - coming soon!

 

The Grand Canyon Shoot ... always love the wind at the Canyon!!

How fun!!! That dress was well spent money, Tina!! My better half was totally spellbound by the Superstitions, still talking about those mountains weekly! I was more into Grand Canyon, that is Yaki point, isnt it?!? I can see the trails we walked, both South Kaibab and Tonto... Great shots!
