“We have a gorgeous bohemian bridal boudoir shoot to share with you today, sent all the way from the Nevada Desert and inspired by the Burning Man Festival (the number 1 festival on my bucket list!).
Put together by Angie Capri Photography and featuring the very beautiful Miss Asian Las Vegas 2014, the aim of the shoot was to mix the free-spirited vibe of burning man with alternative style wedding dresses.
What I love the most about this shoot is Angie’s use of the natural light. The sun bleeds into some of the images creating a soft, sexy and ethereal feel to the shoot. I’m also loving laid back bridal style.” – Festival Brides
“Although I have never been to burning man, I have always been inspired to go and experience it. I’ve heard getting married there is common too – this idea combined with some bridal boudoir is what inspired this adventurous bridal shoot that took place somewhere in the desert in Nevada…
Behind the inspiration: Since nontraditional and two piece wedding dresses are becoming more popular, we paired a white vintage corset with a vintage high waist skirt and brown combat boots. I created a sunflower bouquet to contrast against the white bridal outfit and the muted earth tones of the desert. The red coral and blue turquoise necklace and brown and gold bangles added some nice touches too. Then I thought, a hitchhiking bride with a vintage suitcase would add more quirky fun to this burning man style shoot hehe. To add some movement, she danced around with a white lace curtain. Outfit number two includes a subtle gold jeweled crown and necklace, a black tube bra, a leopard shirt and brown combat boots. Both outfits express lots of bohemian free spirited fashion that we love.” – Angie Capri
“For the makeup, we went with a soft smokey eye with focus on the lashes. My idea was to open up the eyes for that wide-eye, “girl-next-door” look. We chose Motives Cosmetics because I knew I could rely on its awesome pigmentation, long wear, and most importantly, heat resistance. We’re in the desert after all in Vegas! The foundation was airbrushed using Temptu S/B formula. For the hair, I went with pin curls using the Hot Tools marcel iron and Nume hair wand. I wanted the natural sexy waves to look effortless but still have an impact while lasting all day. We primed with Big Sexy Hair “Play Dirty” and sealed with “Spray and Play.” – The Makeup Movement
