1940s vintage desert elopement

From Ashley Burns Photography “We hand picked a real couple for this desert elopement wedding inspiration shoot so that true emotion and chemistry could be displayed through the images.

Since we were going with a vintage elopement wedding theme, what made it even more fitting is that Kyle, the male model, bought his bride, Ashlie, our female model, her wedding ring that is from the 1940’s!”

From the bride model, Ashlie, to Ashley Burns Photography – “Kyle actually saw your announcement for a couple and offered to model for the shoot. We didn’t have a traditional wedding, so our pictures weren’t traditional either. We liked the idea of a fun modeling session.

Kyle was especially excited to get some good pictures with the car. It was our getaway car for our wedding! He restored it from a piece of junk to what it looks like now. He’s very proud of it, as he should be!”

From Ashlie – “Working with everyone, the experience not only was an amazing blessing to us, but also pretty much captured who we are as a couple! We are adventurous; we love to be outdoors and are truly, madly in love.

That day he looked at me in ways like it was our wedding day, you all were able to capture and remind us of that day through this experience. We have watched the video about 19 times each and shared it with our parents. I can’t wait to frame a picture to hang on the wall!”
