Saguaro Shoot with Chevelle

You've never seen color until you've been to The Saguaro Hotel in Palm Springs. Let me tell you. I've been wanting to shoot there for AGES, but I've never made an excuse to make it happen... UNTIL (enter camera right) Chevelle Quezada reached out to me. We both knew where we needed to go.

If you’ve never had the chance to visit the Saguaro Hotel Palm Springs, I highly recommend you go. It’s a stunning place in the middle of one of the most beautiful towns in the world. I met Chevelle there on a perfect sunny morning, and we immediately began exploring the grounds. There were so many colors, and we were having so much fun, we felt like getting a bit crazy.

What else do you expect us to do with these tables??

Chevelle is, to put it bluntly, a photographers DREAM. She’s professional, fashionable, fun, and just looks AMAZING in every photo.

Oh, Hi, I didn't see you there :)

For the first part of the shoot we wanted to highlight the contrast between the bright colorful building and Chevelle’s dark black and white clothes.

No shoot at The Saguaro is complete without a stop at the Saguaro’s famous pool. It was a gorgeous day so of course the pool was crowded but we managed to get a spot clear (don't ask me how!). No one seemed to mind, even the staff just watched us do our thing.

When we finished at the hotel we ran over to a nearby neighborhood with some props to grab this shot.

When I said "lets do a levitation", Chevelle said "I don't know what that means but I'M DOWN". Good answer Chevelle... good answer :)

She's really raising the bar with this pose.
