Romantic Desert Bridal Shoot & Boudoir


Boudoir shoots not only make a great gift for your groom, they’re also a wonderful way to celebrate your body and capture one of the most important times in any girls life. Today’s breathtaking bridal boudoir comes from Koby Brown Photography, and it uses a rustic venue and a rugged landscape to full effect as the perfect backdrop to a gorgeous bride….

Desert Bridal Shoot & Boudoir

Elizabeth of Avery Lane explains “We love an adventurous bride who knows what she wants, and Laura was exactly that! We all travelled many hours by plane and car to reach her dream photo destinations, Big Bend National Park and the Gage Hotel – and it was well worth the effort.

Laura wanted to include boudoir images to gift to her groom along with a stunning scenic backdrop for her bridal portraits. We started with boudoir at The Gage Hotel, incorporating some beautiful lace elements to add romance to the rustic setting. “

“After the boudoir, we loaded up the car for a couple hour drive into Big Bend National Park, being careful to time our arrival for the perfect light of the setting sun. As any adventurous bride must be willing to do, Laura was happy to hike a bit to the location we had scouted the day before – a stunning place overlooking a view called, The Window. Her gown was a perfect choice for this adventure – she chose a beautiful Martina Liana low backed gown with fabric that had some stretch and did not wrinkle (who knew there was such a thing in wedding gowns?!). The stretch and flexibility of the gown was also important since she planned to ride her horse to the ceremony on wedding day!”

Just so stunning, don’t you think? I envy Laura being able to look back on these in 10, 20 or 50 years time. As always a heartfelt thankyou to photographer Koby Brown for capturing the beautiful bride-to-be and landscape so perfectly! If, like me, you are completely in love with his light filled style of fine art photography, you can see more of it right here on CVB: like this blossom-filled Spring elopement, or this utterly captivating Boudoir shoot, and this breathtaking Fall styled shoot. Oh and this Venice elopement must be seen to be believed! Be sure to pop over to his website kobybrown.com too, and follow him on FacebookInstagramTwitterGoogle+ and Pinterest.
