I’m so excited to be sharing today’s blog with you! While I was attending the ShowIt United Conference in Arizona this year, I had the chance to photograph one of their wedding inspiration shoots. This stunning shoot was inspired by the desert and reminded me why I LOVE destination wedding photography so much!
It’s always fun to explore new locations and styles while traveling, especially for a wedding. As the pandemic slows, intimate wedding days and destination wedding days are still very popular. So, I always love a chance to get out and practice my skills to help my clients have the best wedding portraits they can possibly have – no matter where in the world we are!
Buttes Marriott Hotel Wedding Inspiration
This particular wedding inspiration shoot took place at the Buttes Marriott Hotel. We were lucky to work with two wonderful models who spent the afternoon among the cacti and rocks so we could capture their classic looks and portraits! I’m so happy we had the chance to truly focus on their interactions and posing. I’m always trying to find ways to improve and continue to provide my own clients the best experience, so this wedding inspiration shoot allowed me to do just that!
Classic Bridal Look
Despite being in the middle of the Arizona desert, our bridal model was cool in her elegant wedding gown. The dress from Epiphany Boutique Carmel featured a sweetheart neckline and off-the-shoulder sleeves. It was designed with a sleek and simple fabric, without a lot of fuss. But she looked stunning! Paired with her long veil and the bouquet of pastel pink roses, this bridal look is simply classic! For a portion of the wedding inspiration shoot, she also carried a bright bouquet of orange carnations. These really popped against her white gown and the tan backdrop of the Arizona desert.
Arizona Wedding Portraits
Something I really loved about this shoot is that it allowed me to focus on the interactions and portraits between the couple. They both looked absolutely stunning against the cacti and trees around the hotel. I loved watching the way they laughed and relaxed together! As the sun went down, we had a truly gorgeous view of the rocks and they were the best backdrop for these romantic Arizona wedding photos. To end the session, our couple took a quick dip in the pool at the hotel. It was the perfect way to end our Arizona wedding inspiration shoot!
I love getting to capture these special moments so that you can remember your wedding day for the rest of your life!
