Fall Desert Elopement Inspiration | Tucson Elopement Photographers

We love styled shoots and this one is pretty special to us. These shoots create unique experiences to connect with wedding vendor friends and allows each person involved to put their creativity and talents to use. If you've been following us for the last year, you might have noticed that we've been shooting with film a lot lately. It's completely stolen our hearts and sparked a new passion for photography. This shoot is almost all film and it's safe to say that we're thrilled with the results! An added blessing is that this shoot was featured on Ruffled blog yesterday! Check it out, here.  

We love the desert and it's no secret that it's so on trend right now. For this shoot, we wanted to inspire couple's eloping to consider the desert as their fall "I do" destination. What the desert lacks in red and orange falling leaves, it makes up for in stunning views, unique landscapes and fantastic fall weather. Basically, the perfect place to elope and spend a few days soaking up the sun with your new hubby or wife by your side. 

While we love gorgeous white dresses and lavish wedding details, we wanted to inspire couples who want to plan a meaningful, low-key, but hip wedding day. We thought of the girl who had always dreamed of wearing something unique on her wedding day, so this bride donned a stunning lace burgundy dress while her laid back groom sports his favorite jeans and hat. Rachel of The Powder Room Bridal created a stunning look for our bride with a natural look paired with a pop of fall color on her lips. Incredible designs by Alexis Grace Florals brought a little romance to the desert scene and tied in those gorgeous fall colors with a southwest twist. Your wedding day is all about marrying the one you love, so forget about the social norms and plan a wedding that is uniquely you.

Our good friend Kelly of Le Champagne Projects, designed a romantic private dinner party for two, complete with candlelight, a twinkling fireplace and wild florals. Burgundy, plum and lavender tones are woven throughout the scene and pair with the desert colors beautifully. What boho desert bride wouldn't want that beautiful cake on their wedding day? Alia of Crumbs Cake Boutique made this gorgeous white cake that we paired with an ever so fitting real cactus & succulent topper.

To present a unique, authentic feel we used real couple, Meredith & Caleb who are madly in love desert dwellers, with a fun, hip style all their own. We love to see creative couples express themselves on their wedding day and hope this shoot will inspire more couples to think outside the box! 

Thanks for sharing in our joy, friends! If you follow us on instagram, prepare to be inundated with these photos for a long time! :)

Boho Blu- Elegant Bohemian Wedding Day Inspiration

Dreamy Indigo desert wedding at Tohono Chul Gardens with the Soiree Girls! 

It was such an honor to team up with incredible wedding planners Jenn and Akiko from Soiree girls for this styled shoot! These gals are bohemian geniuses and created a shoot that is elegant and whimsical all at the same time. For this shoot, we wanted to create an elegant boho soiree that was inspired by rich earthy tones like indigo blues and desert greens, with touches of gold and natural stone details. Our shoot took place at the gorgeous Tohono Chul Gardens, a lush green hidden oasis in the desert. It is the perfect spot for an intimate vow renewal or wedding and has so many gorgeous spots for photos! Betsy Dunlap created a stunning hand calligraphed invitation suit and place cards for us that set a dreamy tone for the gorgeous indigo table settings that the Soiree girls created! For couples trying to achieve this look, we encourage them to be really intentional in choosing a venue that they love. We adore this sweet and simple garden setting because it enhanced the intimate feel of our bohemian soiree without requiring any additional décor. The Ohhh Booth (a vintage volkswagen bus converted into a photo booth) made an appearance that has everyone swooning! We love the Ohhh Booth, because it is such a great alternative option for couples who want a photo booth, with a little bit of extra wow factor. It was an incredible experience working with such talented vendors! We love styled shoots because it gives us an opportunity for us an other vendors to express themselves creatively. A huge thanks to our models who stepped in last minute and saved the day! Thanks for checking out this collaboration friends! Want to see more? Check out the feature on 100 Layer Cake!
