End of Summer Bohemian Shoot on the Beach

indian summer styled shoot

With today being the last official day of summer, this shoot seemed like the perfect fit! This shoot came to life when a bunch of film loving, Contax 645 (a type of camera) enthusists decided to get together to talk shop and create some beautiful images while doing so. Daniele from Lavender & Twine volunteered to coordinate the logistics for the shoot and asked Magnolia Event Design and Tenley Erin Young to create something fun for their group to shoot. Having a soft spot for the 60s and the Bohemian lifestyle, they wanted to created a beautiful shoot that embraced the elements of earth, wind, fire and water. They collected vintage rugs and moccasins, bows & arrows from a Native American Texan named “Bowmaker”, contacted Andrea from Superfine Bakery for their gorgeous cake, Ayana Designs for the incredible jewelry, and went to work setting up what they imagined to be an intimate ceremony from the summer of love.
