Every so often I'm greeted with an email that makes me stop a second and catch my breath. When Alejandra–a complete stranger–emailed me out of the blue, her words were so compelling I couldn't stop reading. She's a creator and a dreamer, so she pitched the idea of collaborating together…to tell the story of a brand through video.

Part of why I was so inspired to connect was because she wanted to stay away from traditional promotional work and focus on emotion and mood. The idea was to feel the shoot…and collaborate with an incredible team to bring her ideas to life. And I was lucky enough to document it all.

There's something truly magical working with a team who's dedicated to their craft and pushing themselves…the energy of the day was palpable because we strived to showcase the strength of our work for the betterment of the team. I'm so lucky to have worked with such an incredible group of professionals.

I flew to Phoenix for this shoot and I was happily greeted by an amazing set and a lovely couple ready to have some fun…

The prop stylist, Misha, served homemade orchata and to say it was delicious would be an epic understatement…

The set was filled with lots of love amor…

After playing indoors, we decided to have a Desert Rendezvous in Phoenix…and we luckily scored a vintage Mercedes Benz for the ride into the dessert…how fun!

Last minute primping, in red.

These two foodies enjoyed a road trip picnic filled with delicious snacks for the free soul…

Spiced, roasted cashews, anyone?

So much love…

Jessica was a pro in front of the camera…

And here's the final product Alejandra produced…she's incredibly inspiring because she's a firm believer of dreaming things into reality…and pushes others to do the same. Here's her dream in video form…

Desert Rendezvous with Jasmine Star from Ale Vidal – Imaginale on Vimeo.

Many, many thanks to this talented group of people who made the shoot possible (even in the midst of a Phoenix sandstorm)…

I wouldn’t say we were business nerds but my husband just sent me a Slack message asking me to call him.

If you need me, just follow the trail of empty La Croix cans around my house.
