Kate | Fashion Editorial | Gavin Wade Stylized Shoot Part II | Las Vegas, NV

A couple days ago I blogged about my “Romantics” shoot in the desert with Gavin Wade and 30 other photographers during WPPI. Today, it’s the beautiful Kate’s turn to grace the blog.

Not only is Kate an absolutely stunning model, she’s a very talented photographer as well. No pressure, right? Thank goodness I didn’t know she was a photographer until after the shoot.

The following shots are among my favorite. I couldn’t find an open space to shoot-what with 15-odd other photographers jockeying for a position-so I shot through some good ole desert brush. The effect was pretty cool if I do say so myself.:)

These are definitely the “RAWR” images of the bunch.

Another “behind the scenes” shot. Taking a photo of people taking photos. How very photographer of me.

The coolest thing happened during this shoot. Not only did I meet another LeiLani for the first time in my 26 years (shout out to Leilani Tucker Photography!), but I was also recognized from Weddingbee!

MarieSam approached me while our models were changing outfits and sheepishly asked if I was Mrs. Labrador. After I finished squealing like a giddy little girl in response to the recognition, we soon found out we’re kindred spirits. We both worked as reporters (with a love of sports) before pursuing our other dream of photography. Our own weddings inspired the photographers we want to become. And we both married tall, good-looking guys. πŸ˜‰

But seriously, MarieSam’s husband, Tommy, was just as cool as her. She’s somehow convinced him into being her photography partner. I need to pick her brain some more to figure out how to convert my own husband into a photography sidekick. We ended up hanging out together for the rest of the shoot, cracking jokes and taking photos of each other in action.

Kate came back from her quick change looking. something. FIERCE.

We all got the idea for the “kicked up” dirt by watching some kids play on ATVs off in the distance. One of the photographers had a truck, so he took a couple laps spinning tires just behind Kate so we could get this look. Now where’s a luxury sports car and music video production crew when you need them?!

I loved Kate’s entire second look. The feathers, the hair, the makeup, the SPARKLES…

…and the SHOES.

What you can’t tell from all of Kate’s photos is how incredibly chilly it started getting as the sun went down (I mean, we were in a desert). The poor thing had been in a tiny dress most of the shoot and I’m sure she was grateful to change into something a little warmer. I snapped a few candids right before we all packed up and headed back to the MGM. Kate is just as beautiful being herself as she is when striking a pose.

It was so hard to call it quits and load back into our vehicles. And just when I pulled myself out of “photographer mode”, I turned around and saw the sky.
