Mid Century + Desert Engagement  |  by Alyssa Marie Photography  |  www.smittenmagazine.com How to capture delightful engagement pictures: Step 1> Find a fabulous venue and/or scenery.  Step 2> Gather thoughtful and well designed props (like this oversized leaf save the date).  Step 3> Shop for great fashion that is equal parts special (they are your engagement photos after all), but also true to you (it’d be nice to wear these outfits again).  Add in a great photographer and combine.  The hardest part is waiting for the final images.

Check out the first look of this engagement session by Alyssa Marie Photography and designed by Samantha Dapper Event Design (aka the bride!).  Then read about the smart ideas from the bride’s point of view before we head to the desert and look number two. Mid Century + Desert Engagement  |  by Alyssa Marie Photography  |  www.smittenmagazine.com Mid Century + Desert Engagement  |  by Alyssa Marie Photography  |  www.smittenmagazine.com Mid Century + Desert Engagement  |  by Alyssa Marie Photography  |  www.smittenmagazine.com Mid Century + Desert Engagement  |  by Alyssa Marie Photography  |  www.smittenmagazine.com Bride (and pro planner), Samantha Dapper talks about her wedding vision and how it inspired her and Kyle’s engagement session.

“I wanted every detail of our wedding to be unique to us and reflect our personality. We chose to have our wedding in Palm Springs, a mini destination for our guests and a place we both love to visit. The inspiration for the photo styling was based on what I love most about Palm Springs. The mid-century modern influence and the drama of the desert backdrop. I had such a clear idea of what I wanted each look to come out like and I knew it was important because it would ultimately become the inspiration for our wedding decor. I think the photo shoot really represents what our wedding style will be; fun and formal!”

Having an event that reflects your personality is oh-so-important!  Can’t wait to see how the wedding comes together.  Congrats you two!
