Bridal Boudoir Las Vegas Nevada 096

Afternoon Peeps,

We have a gorgeous bohemian bridal boudoir shoot to share with you today, sent all the way from the Nevada Desert and inspired by 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.

Angie talks us through her ideas behind the shoot….

Although I have never been to burning man I have always been inspired to go and experience it. I’ve even heard getting married there is a common phenomenon. This idea combined with some bridal boudoir (which is my specialty) is what inspired this adventurous styled shoot that took place somewhere in the desert in Nevada – about an hour from the Las Vegas strip, with Catherine who is the 2014 Miss Asian Las Vegas.

Behind The Inspiration…..

Since nontraditional and two piece wedding dresses are becoming more popular I paired a white vintage corset with a vintage high waist skirt, and brown combat boots. I created a DIY sunflower bouquet to contrast against her white bridal outfit and all of the muted earth tones of the desert, and included a red coral and blue turquoise necklace and brown and gold bangles. Then I thought, a hitchhiking bride with a vintage suitcase would add more quirky fun to this burning man style shoot. For more creative movement I gave her a white lace curtain to walk and twirl around with at sunset. Then of course when she’s not getting married, she’s going to need another outfit to enjoy the burning man festivities! 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.

A ‘Girl Next Door’ Look….

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.”
