Desert Elopement + Emma Gown

By: Erynn Brown Photography

(May 12th, 2019 Ephrata, WA + Vantage, WA)

What was the vision for your styled shoot?: I wanted a bohemian styled shoot with lots of pops of warm colors in a desert-type scenery. Eastern Washington has so many gems location-wise so it made it easy to find the perfect location. The Pallisades just outside of Ephrata is a beautiful canyon that gave off the desert elopement vibe that I was looking for!

How did it go the day of? : The day went so smoothly! Maiah Young, our makeup artist for the shoot, did an amazing job with our model at the beginning of the day, all while sipping on mimosas and chatting with myself and the model. Then came time for the shoot. Myself, Ryann, and Gunnar drove out to the first location, Vantage, WA, later that afternoon. The wind was blowing a little bit, but it made for some dreamy photos. We then headed back into Ephrata and made our way to the pallisades, a beautiful canyon just west of Ephrata. And while the sun didn't shine right away, it managed to swing our way and gave the most gorgeous golden hour that I've seen this spring.
