Making a Statement at the W.
We sure had a difficult time choosing the cover for this issue. Shot at the swanky W Scottsdale, we had the opportunity to feature so many opulent settings. This iconic painting soon became a focal point for many of the shots. Set stylist Amina Michele of Some Like it Classic Wedding & Event Design guided our team toward her artistic vision.

One expressive pose eventually became our top choice from hundreds of images of our cover models enjoying the luxe setting. The talented team of Kevin and Tina of Sierra Blanco Photography captured the sophisticated setting and the breathtaking gown from Mariee Gallery with dramatic flair.
