Seattle to Tulum Mexico

What happens when I crew from Seattle & Portland travel to Tulum Mexico for a photo shoot, a whole lotta luggage.


Pulling product for this editorial in Tulum had it’s challenges, mostly because it was in Mexico, and I would need to have samples for over a week. Also Love Win’s was a new magazine and brands weren’t willing to send me stuff. Below is a picture of all the samples that were mailed for this shoot.


There were actually two sets of stylist for this job. I was styling both grooms and one bride for Love Wins. Editors/Stylists Tessa Wolf and Amanda Zurita styled the other bride for Salt Lake City Bride and Groom.. The shoots ended up turning out beautiful. It’s hard to talk about this shoot without mentioning that our Air B-N-B was robbed. The safes were ripped out of both my and the other stylists room, which had all my cash and jewelry for the shoot. My laptop was also taken. Thankfully the photographers room wasn’t touched with all his gear. Bummer I know… but the real bummer was we shot so many looks that I never got to see. I ordered so many designer pieces and they never saw the light of day. Like the shot below of this head to toe Gucci look.
