When you think of the desert, specifically the Arizona desert, what colors come to mind? I always think of clay colors like rust, pink, coral, and lots of soft greens. I rarely ever think of blue or gold, but maybe I am alone on this one. That's why it was such a pleasant surprise to see this wedding inspiration shoot featuring blues and golds, paired perfectly with that sage green that comes to mind. The soft blues made this desert shoot become something a little more elegant and lot more soft; it's no wonder that Borrowed & Blue decided to feature this pretty one on their blog.
This shoot in specific was part of a shoot out hosted by The Amberguys. Katrina & Blake had this great idea to host shoot outs for photographers to come and get updated (and beautifully styled) images for their portfolio. Real weddings die down during summer around here, and sometimes, it is really necessary to get new images for social media, your website, and any marketing materials you've got in mind for the upcoming season. Katrina would get a really talented team of vendors together, come up with a great concept and then invite 10-15 photographers to come and shoot; specifically to add to their portfolio. We were involved in a couple of these, and we always got such great images from them. No detail is untouched!! They always do such a great job! Callie Halcomb, who knew Katrina & Blake from Seattle (that is where they are both from), flew out specifically for this fun project to help plan the shoot day, keep the timeline going, work on all the design aspects like staging & styling, and really made it feel so organized and put together. Lauren Buman, the photographer behind all of these images, attended a few of these shoot outs. Her feature on Borrowed & Blue was such a great surprise, we had to share all the images our self. With furniture & specialty decor rentals, most of the time we just drop off and go. But, when you get the opportunity to work with so many cool people, we couldn't help but come a little earlier to hang out with everyone and see some friends.
