Here’s one for the wanderlust: a romantic sunset over the sweeping desert landscape of Joshua Tree, with rich, sultry textures contrasting the neutral backdrop! The brilliant design was imagined by the team at Bustle Events, and we were ecstatic to be contribute to this exotic collaboration!
Bustle Events’ own design maven Marina Tolentino said about the event:
The design concept for this styled shoot began with the colors of marsala and turquoise and a backdrop of the stunning desert wilderness in mind. The look developed into a little bohemian, a little tribal, and a lot of breathtaking details. The neutral colors of Joshua Tree’s cacti and rock formations begged for rich colored details to help show off Mother Nature’s creations.
Amanda from Thorne Artistry created three amazing looks for our models to wear, each of them unique and equally striking. Using turquoise stone in the jewelry from Erin Fader and Shel Couture as well as an embellished skull from Child of Wild really helped incorporate a bit of the Native American feel and bring that pop of beauty to the photos. Another way we tied in the cultural element to the shoot was with a beautiful table runner to use as a prayer shawl for the ceremony look. The calligrapher, Kristina, hand wrote an Indian wedding prayer that could have been used as vows.
