Poppin’ Red Accents in a Retro Inspired Elopement

Today’s wedding is a completely pin-upified, retro inspired elopement shot by Josh & Jen Photography back in October. Tara and Tim are a local couple that met through mutual friends and spent their first date together dancing at Revolver Saloon. A year after they met, they were married!

A sharp looking groom in a fedora, tie and suspenders and a flouncy little white number for the bride teamed up with blazing red lippy, a birdcage veil and rad tattoos…match made in heaven!

This is my kind of couple. A flask for him, a beer for her!

There are some shots of the bride, Tara, getting ready with the help of the team from Makeup in the 702, making her updo and look transform into one that is retro-inspired. Isn’t her skin amazing? pinup wedding vegas002

I love the totally beautiful shot of the rose and fiddlehead fern bouquet from Lush Floral with Tara behind it. That plus the combo Converse + heel shoe shot are awesome ideas for a bouquet photo – so often it’s the bride’s hands or the bouquet alone. Are you taking notes, readers??

Tara writes, about here tattoos: “I always am changing my look and I love my tattoos . My husband and I use our tattoos as a major form of bonding.”

Tip: always bring your lipstick to touch up during a photo shoot…

…and your new husband to do it for you! Too cute.

    I had so much fun working with this adorable couple and with Josh +Jen. Major kuddos to Makeup in the 702– the wind was CRAZY that day and Tara’s hair and makeup help up beautifully. Congratulations to the happy couple!
