This was truly one of the most fun shoots to do, ever! The ever so talented Amanda from Butterfly petals, dreamed up this romantic little Barrio/ Mexican inspired shoot and brought me on board to photograph it. It was such a treat to get to photograph all her beautiful floral creations. From her saguaro skeleton ceremony pieces, to her beautiful bougainvillea head pieces, everything she does is unique and gorgeous.
Once we got a plan together, I asked my ever to talented friend Jenny of De Filippis Designs to create one of her amazing invitation suites to fit the style of the shoot. The colors were amazing!
My second shooter, and fellow friend/photography Kelsey of Kelsey Shirley Photography came along too…and brought her ADORABLE kids for us to photograph. Love these two!
The location for the shoot was in the old Barrio Viejo in downtown Tucson at El Tiradito Shrine. Click the name to read more about the history there…amazing!
All the jewelry and vintage clothes were thanks to Alexis at Avenue Boutique how handmade most of the jewelry you see. Check out her gorgeous creations on her website!
This cute face!
The shoot was fun for obvious creative reasons, but it was also fun because everyone involved was so fun! We even had food, drinks and of course- a tequila shot!
These tables were exquisite!
Beautiful menus and table numbers by De Filippis Designs!
This is my favorite shot from the shoot!
The earrings! Again, Avenue Boutique.
The amazing Sugar Sweet Bakery even got involved, making some delicious cupcakes and cookie favors for the shoot. Their dessert is INSANE. The best cookies I have ever had in my life…and I am a cookie SNOB. Everything they do in that bakery is perfection, aestitically and taste-wise!
Love these table favors- cookies in a jar with custom tags that say “Mr. & Mrs.” great idea!
Bunny the donkey shoed up to make an appearance at the end of the shoot too! He is the sweetest donkey, and was so easy to work with.
Of douse ever model, needs to take a snack break…
A very special thank you to our amazing models! You both are such awesome and gorgeous peep and friends!
