From Green Blossom Photography – “For this creative project I wanted to highlight a very unique Colorado natural phenomenon, Great Sand Dunes National Park. The park is somewhat isolated in the Southwestern part of Colorado, so I knew that we could create an intimate shoot that capitalized on the amazing, sweeping views of the dunes.

I partnered early on with Michelle from Brindle + Oak and together we dreamed up a relaxed and organic shoot concept. We wanted colors that would pop against the neutrals of the sand so we took our color inspiration from the purple prickly pear cactus. Our paper artist, Meagan from Whimsy Design Studio, incorporated on-trend geometric patterns into the invitation set and we utilized the color and weight of gemstones on our escort cards to counter the wind. We knew that it would be windy at the shoot, so we looked for ways that we could use the wind to our advantage.

We chose a lightweight dress with a lot of movement from Emma and Grace Bridal Studio (designer Truvelle) and used heavy vases and geodes to anchor the tablescape. By placing the table directly on the sand and using pillows for seats, we played up the relaxed scene of the off the beaten path location (which required 4-wheel drive to get to!). As the sun set we added a burgundy blanket to the styling to emphasize intimacy and connection between our couple and took advantage of the soft light to capitalize on the scenery of the dunes.”
