                          'Sometimes your adventure is being part of someone else's.'

     British boho bride meets Americana on this long forgotten stretch of historic route 66. 

I had the pleasure of photographing and meeting this beautiful soul from the other side of the pond as she made her way through her American road trip. She is the talent behind Anna Beth Photography, another destination wedding photographer like myself. When a last minute change of plans left her without a model for this boho bridal portrait session, she stepped in as the model in this beautiful dress by another British company, Shikoba Bride and asked me to photograph her. With the gorgeous flower crown and bouquet by local Arizona company: Bliss Extraordinary Floral and another local artist doing hair and makeup: Patricia Vega Hair and Makeup Studio, it was truly the perfect collaboration between both sides of the pond. {On a side note, if you are interested in more from each vendor who helped to collaborate, click on the links above.}

A Little More About the Location- Historical Route 66/Ash Fork, Arizona

Ash Fork is just over 5,000 feet in elevation and the night before received a few inches of snow. Most had melted and left a gorgeous sunny day with this amazing sunset that we took advantage of. Though we did find a few patches of snow in the shadows of route 66. The internationally renowned U.S. Route 66 runs directly through the town, some of which can be seen in this session. Notably, the longest original, uninterrupted stretch of Route 66 still in existence (approximately 9.6 miles (15.4 km) long) can be found between Ash Fork, Arizona, and Seligman, Arizona, beginning just beyond Ash Fork at Crookton Road. This uninterrupted portion starts approximately a mile west of the dead end portion we used in this session. There's also a lot of history with the Santa Fe railroad and one of the famed Harvey houses, the Escalante, once stood here. Also of note, it is known as the flagstone capital of the world and we also incorporated this into our session as well as you will note the flagstone piles towards the end of the session.

Without further adieu...I truly hope you enjoy the results. Oh, and the purple bus? Well, that can only be explained as meant to be. Honestly, it showed up less than an hour before she did and was gone before 9 a.m.  the next morning, never to be seen again.

Love & Blessings, Anna
