Reese+Teena: Sweet Desert “Wedding” Styled Shoot

Nov 9, 2011

Every once in a while I need to stretch my photography creativity by planning and shooting a styled shoot. It starts out as an idea, a vision or concept I see in my head. Then when I’m finally feeling crazy enough, I start bringing it to life. But I’m only one part of it. I would never be able to execute a styled shoot with out the help of all the amazing vendors that contribute their talents to it. This time around I was able to collaborate with 4 amazingly talented vendors to bring this styled shoot to life.

When I first starting thinking about what this shoot would look like, these things came to mind : Intimate desert wedding with a rustic chic, DIY, sweet vibe to it. My uber cute friends Reese + Teena Dare played the role of bride and groom for the day and they were perfect for it! Teena radiates sweetness like no other. Ashley Nicole did such a wonderful job keeping Teena’s makeup sweet and natural, yet stunningly beautiful. Wait til you see the bouquet, boutonnière and cake topper that Jenni Lind of A Simple Start made. I just about fell on the floor when she brought them over. April of Designer Cakes by April outdid herself with the ruffled flower cake. You can’t get much cuter than that! And the Cake Contessa brought the ensemble to completion with her sweet, custom cupcakes. To all that contributed to this shoot, I can’t thank you enough. Thanks for trusting in my vision and allowing me to bring this to life. I am so grateful to work with such talented people such as yourselves.

To all of you brides out there, you MUST check out the vendors below. They will rock your wedding like they rocked this shoot!
