Film Photography + Gorgeous Florals Combine for this Wedding Inspiration Win
This styled shoot is radiating with some of the prettiest shades of blush, yellow, peach, green and more - making us want to visit Joshua Tree pronto!
I'm a new West Coast resident and at the tippy top of my must visit list? Joshua Tree. I've come across plenty of gorgeous shoots there here at SMP but this one right here cements this magical spot on my wanderlust list immediately. Captured at Kayla Barker and Bow and Arrow's Floral and Film Workshop, it's radiating with beauty in some of the prettiest shades of blush, yellow, peach, green and more. Imageclairity filmed it live and with this clip and these pics, we're eager to attend this year's upcoming gathering - more info on that right this way!

From Kayla Barker... Two things go together beautifully – florals and film photography. Myself, Kayla Barker, a film photographer and floral designers Alicia and Adam Rico of Bows & Arrows teamed up to bring together aspiring film photographers and floral designers to learn and work together at our workshop Joshua Tree: A Union of Floral & Film.

We picked the unique and stunning backdrop of Joshua Tree, California as our location and inspiration for the workshop and our two shoots: Elegant Espanola and Mexicali. The photography and floral attendees came together during these shoots to learn about creating together as a team. Invitations and calligraphy by Script Merchant and engraved details by Paper Birch Designs set the scene and mood of the two shoots. Gorgeous tabletop details were provided by Casa de Perrin on beautiful Found Vintage Rentals furniture that were the perfect contrast in the desert landscape. Dresses by Tatyana Merenyuk and veils by Girl With a Serious Dream were accented with beautiful floral headpieces and stunning bouquets by the attendees with Frou Frou Chic ribbon. Stunning make-up and hair by Amy Clarke for The Halcyon Agency and rings by Trumpet & Horn enhanced our models’ beauty.

Two days of creating and photographing beauty in the California desert landscape lead to new friendships, an abundance of beauty, new inspiration and the union of floral and film.

Join Kayla Barker, along with special guest, Gabrielle Hurwitz of Style Me Pretty, Joy Proctor, Bows + Arrows and team in the beautiful Normandy countryside of France from July 10-13.
