Desert Boho Styled Shoot

Ever since I became a Tucson, Arizona photographer, I have just found myself loving the desert more and more. Cactus, the sunset, canyons. I absolutely love the Arizona desert. So, when I was on Pinterest one day and saw a wedding tablescape that was filled with cactus, I knew I had to plan a styled shoot that emphasized the desert. Along with Kring Fotography and Adelyn Photography, I planned a shoot called "Desert Boho." It was not easy, sometimes not fun, and really pretty scary to put myself out there like that. The day was not without its hiccups either. 

That said, I had an amazing vendor team that helped me bring my vision together (despite the hiccups). Each of them contributed a detail that truly exemplified the spirit of desert boho and community. 

While we were hit with very high temperatures the day of (when I really thought it would rain), we were blessed with a beautiful sunset. I am so glad I decided to organize this shoot, and so grateful for the people I met a long the way. Be sure to look at all the photos. I have some amazing sunset photos at the end!

 Rachel from  The Powder Room  and Elizabeth from  A Floral Note  really pulled this Boho Inspired look together. They really had this dress from  J.Bridal Boutique  in mind when they were creating the looks for this shoot. I'm absolutely in love with the colors Rachel used for Sarah's makeup, and can we just talk about how perfect that bouquet is? Featuring the King Protea (which my husband refused at first to believe was real because it was just so magnificent), the bouquet just screamed elegant boho. The suit that Martín wore from  Top Hat Formal Wear  complemented the dress so nicely.

 I loved the stationary made by  Lyssletters  so much. She really captured the spirit of the desert!

 We also had an engaged couple modeling another boho look for us. Let me tell you something. Skyler and Adam had crazy chemistry. You could tell Adam was just so in love with Skyler and how beautiful she was in her dusty blue romper and beautifully styled hair and makeup.

 Alia from  Crumbs Cake Boutique  did an absolutely fabulous job with this cake. With a succulent dusted with purple, a rose, some boho flowers, and a blue water color technique, she captured every important element of this shoot.

 This Ti Adora dress from  J.Bridal Boutique  stole my heart. Long sleeves, lace, an open back, and a small train. What more could you want in a dress?

 Elizabeth's bouquet went absolutely perfectly with Skyler's dusty blue dress, so we got a picture with Skyler and the bouquet too.
