Classic Car + Roses: A Rad Road Trip Elopement

1970's Roadtrip Elopement

Buckle up, love. We’re hitting the road with nothing but a vintage car, a rad couple, and a few hundred roses in tow! You know, just in case. This road trip elopement inspiration is the brainchild of photographer, Heather K. Purdy, and here’s a little BTS from the lady herself:

There are three things I love photographing more than anything in the world: couples in love, vintage cars, and gorgeous florals. So, I had this dream to combine them all in a styled shoot that married those elements, as well as gives voice to this desire to take a road trip and be free from all this COVID madness. Hit the road, escape from reality, and go a little bit rock and roll in the dreamiest way possible…

Despite the super-cool reckless vibe of its whole day, Heather met the couple before lockdown + they waited until things were a little less reckless to shoot. But with a little patience and the perfect small team of creatives, magic happens — let’s have a look!
