Today's styled engaged shoot is definitely one for the books!! This lovely couple wanted to head out to the desert for fun engagement photos, and we may have brought a little bit more than they were expecting! Hehe...
In order to pull this one together, we headed out to Casa Del Zorro in Borrego Springs and put together 4 very different looks for them. For the first few looks we wanted to create something fun and flirty, and dressed our bride-to-be in a short off the shoulder floral dress and our groom-to-be in tan slacks and a pastel pink button down.
We started the day off in a giant chess board. This was such a fun way to begin, that really allowed the couple to have fun and get comfortable in front of the camera. We then set up a casual lounge for our lovely couple with bohemian rentals from Folklore Vintage Rentals and bold colored floral from Compass Floral. We also brought in two fun patterned pillows to enhance the look, and let the couple have a little bit of fun with a friendly pillow fight.
After all the pillow fighting, it was time for a rest, and we set up a relaxing hammock in the middle of the desert. This was my first time hanging a hammock, and I have to admit, it is not as easy as it looks! Our beautiful looked so relaxed sitting in the hammock, and Mr. and Mrs. Wedding was able to capture some truly amazing photos here.
For the last part of the day, we wanted to create a slightly more formal look and had our bride-to-be wear a long, white bohemian dress from Anthropology and our groom-to-be changed into a white button down with suspenders. Let me just tell you, they killed this look!! Once they were changed, we left Casa Del Zorro and headed out the middle of the desert in order to achieve that very natural desert vibe. We set a gorgeous bohemian desert tablescape, complete with a macrame table runner, gorgeous bold colored floral and cactus place cards! Cute Cakes also provide a gorgeous, and subtle, desert inspired white cake. This was a true showstopper, especially once it was set on a stylish pink cake table. We then finished the day off with gorgeous desert sunset photos with our lovely couple, which just may be may favorite part of the day!
