Whispers of the Hills


Lushly green hills as far as the eye can see. Even far in the distance you see hills nestling up to each other. Forlorn they stick with themselves. Solely the wind is a welcome visitor…

But today the wind is not alone, carries a girl through the day. Dreamy, pensive and smitten she gets carried away. She enjoys the silence and infinite width, feels safe and secure.

With her stunning dress and a gorgeous bouquet she brings grace and glance into the landscape, sets vibrant accents with pink and green. Her companion´s soft gusts bring out her splendor and beauty.

Once again the exceptional photographer Ashley Ludaescher suceeded in capturing dreamlike bridal inspirations in natural surroundings.

She told: “I have always been madly in love with the rolling hills of Northern Santa Barbara county and have wanted to organize a shoot there for ages. The landscape definitely was a big inspiration for our “Whispers of the Hills” shoot, which took place in the gorgeous Santa Rita Hills countryside.

We were blessed with a few days of rain before our shoot and the lush, green hills looked more like Ireland than Southern California during a drought. Asha from Wilder Floral Co. created a stunning bouquet for our shoot with peonies and blush roses, finished with beautiful blush ribbons from Silk & Willow.

Amanda Judge shared three of her gorgeous Untamed Petals hair accessories for our shoot, which looked perfect underneath the grey tulle veil. The Reem Acra gown is the most beautiful shade of blush and matched our color palette perfectly.”

We totally share Ashley Ludaescher´s passion for this wonderful place on earth and can hardly wait to dive with you into her one-of-a-kind world of pictures…
