Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany had the most stunning bohemian desert anniversary session ever! It was inspired by Tucson and it didn't disappoint! Smoke bombs, gorgeous florals and smoke bombs. Interested yet?

When Mike and Brittany asked us about doing an anniversary session, we just knew it was going to be incredible. These two are sweet, mellow and fashionable musicians with a crazy mad love for each other. Mike and Brittany met at a music conference as teenagers, had a whirlwind romance and tied the knot a short time later. Since getting married, they moved to Tucson, an Arizona desert town, deeply rooted in a culture of music and art. Mike and Brittany fell in love with the culture and community they found in Tucson. They just celebrated 8 years of being married and wanted to create a shoot that represented not only their love for each other, but the rich connection they have established with their little desert town. We created a shoot for them that was inspired by the southwest desert, filled with eclectic, geometric details and just gushing with romance.

We feel so blessed that this gorgeous session was featured on Green Wedding Shoes

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!
