Witchy San Diego Boudoir Photography

'Love Potion' a styled shoot that showcases a Valentine's Day wedding, gone dark. Urban Shindigs set the mood with their style and design magic. They put together a team that can tell this love story best. 

The day begins with our bride soaking in a 'love potion' bath. Her bath is drawn with a black bath bomb and a colorful arrangement of blooms. The setting, a gorgeous resort in a secluded mountain town of San Diego, California, the Viejas Casino & Resort. This venue is surrounded by mystic trees, concrete staples, natural foliage, and a vast mountain backdrop. The Floral Craft made sure to use the direct compliment for the already beautiful greenery. She used an assortment of dark contrasting colors of plum, burgundy, black mixed with dusty rose and creams. Captured black roses, magic roses, hellebore, blackberry stems, and dried moon flower pods, oh my! Taxidermy played well with the idea of nature. To capture the essence of this shoot, This Rad Love brought out her creative side. She let the lens tell this magical story of love and allurement. After the luxurious bath, the bride slipped into her beautiful blush colored dress by the Dress Theory. Erin Dunaway, Erin Scissorhands, then applied the bride's makeup. She brought all the sexy with a smokey eye, nude lip, and a voluminous loop braid filled with blooms. For the special touches afterward, jewelry and crystals, provided by Love Tatum really put the look together. Gold really bounced off our color pallet. Accented with fossilized crystals, raw diamonds, and abstract shapes. The groom put a spell on his bride himself. His burgundy shawl lapel tuxedo by Ike Behar, provided by Friars Tux, had her mesmerized. As they dined, their sweet heart table scape flatware was provided by Not My Dish rentals. We pulled in all the brass with hints of amethyst and amber. To top it off, we added taxidermy bugs, crystals, and thirst quenching fruits.
