Bright & Organic: A Fresh Southwest-Inspired Photoshoot
Posted by Kate. Filed under Photography, Wedding Inspiration

When I heard that Paper Antler was coming thru my hometown of Tucson, Arizona this winter (on tour for the Fifty Nifty) I snagged ‘em up for a photoshoot!  Since they’re from the midwest, they really wanted to capture the essence of the desert…. they said… how about some cool fort?   I was immediately inspired to make use of the amazing yurt in my backyard (of which- I always joke- I’m going to turn into a glamper).  We teamed up with the hip and fabulous Misha West to bring the vision to life.  During our creative process, our priorities were to design an organic tabletop with lots of gorgeous desert colors…. we also wanted to use the yurt for a ceremony location and reception lounge space. We rounded up the best florist in the state, Camelback Flowershop, to create fresh and modern florals.  Our models, Brigette and Alexis, who we featured here, were a dream to work with.  They’re newly engaged, totally in love, and currently planning their own wedding!  (They enjoyed the practice run).
We put Brigette in a light and flowing gown by Katie Jean and earrings by Ayofemi.  Phoenix-based beauty pros, Mariana Marie and Paige Ashcroft finished off her natural, tousled look flawlessly.  Meanwhile, we brought on the extremely talented Kristy Rice from Momental Designs to design a paper suite to fit our mod-Southwest vision.  Needless to say, when I got these in the mail, I was over the moon!

For the yurt setting, we kept the attire cool and casual.  Our handsome groom, Alexis, was dressed by Tres Boutique.  We moved inside to bring to life our quaint reception concept, really pulling thru the warm tones of the desert and featuring seasonal fruits.  Of course, one of the highlights was the kumquat-embellished mini cakes by Sweet Creations!
As the evening winded down, we thought some cozy time in the glamper… (ahem, yurt) was due.  We transformed the ceremony setting into a romantic lounge, complete with woven and vintage blankets, an antique trunk, pillows, cushions, florals and candlelight!

Whew!  It was a full day of designing and shooting… As the sun sunk into the horizon, it was a wrap!

You can see more from the photoshoot here.

Thanks soooo much to all of the extraordinary wedding pros who helped to pull this off:
