Desert Dreams: An Elegantly Whimsical Styled Shoot in Nevada

Modern elegance meets natural whimsy in this beautifully imaginative shoot, set in a windswept Nevadan desert beneath overcast skies. “We wanted to create a refined yet fanciful setting amidst an arid landscape,” says photographer Rae Marshall, who collaborated with a cohort of Las Vegas wedding professionals to bring the shoot to life. “We focused on the overall atmosphere of the location and on incorporating small, unexpected details that could have sprung from some fantastical dream.”
To achieve the look they were after, the team used flowers that looked like they might have been picked nearby, fluidly reflecting the color palette of the desert—vibrant blues and muted purples mixed with sandy silvers and pops of dusty pink. Thistles, kale, and eucalyptus were paired with dahlias, delphiniums, and lisianthuses for textural effect, while greenery and trailing ribbons lent a flowy touch. Although the tablescape was kept traditional, an array of intriguing props—a playful alligator planter, a silvered conch shell, and sky-colored agates—left the scene open to interpretation.
“With its dreamlike feel, the shoot is meant to remind couples that they can be elegant while still having a little fun,” Rae says.
