Who doesn’t love a good party in the desert? We sure do, and that is why we are excited to share this super epic photo-shoot from a bachelorette party in Palm Springs, California that features everything from mid-century architecture to boho babes making awesome memories under palm trees! Yes it is true that Palm Springs weddings still get the lion’s share of coverage here, but when Laure from The Palm Springs Photographer reached out to us with this stylish and fun shoot we had to step away from the regular scheduled blogging so to say. So take a moment to check out some of these AMAZING photos she captured and her commentary on the day. Oh and if you and your girl squad are planning a bachelorette party in Palm Springs hopefully you can draw some inspiration from Laura’s shoot. Enjoy!
Alexa lives in San Diego with her now-husband (and high school sweetheart!) and is a professor at SDSU, a social media consultant, and an art consultant. She loves everything Midcentury and her Maid of Honor, McKenzie, chose Casa Verona for the perfect 70’s themed bachelorette party. She and her husband just got married in October at Mammoth Lakes.
Bachelorette parties are so much fun and always a little different! I love photographing them because there is always an opportunity to involve props, such as balloons, bubbles, and champagne pops. I love photographing Palm Springs bachelorette parties because not only is it the perfect place to have a bachelorette party, it also can have so many different themes: different eras (such as the 70’s), flamingos or cacti, or just a shoot in one of the many Palm Springs pools! The only negative thing about photographing a bachelorette party in Palm Springs is that it is a relatively untapped market for shoots like this. It’s an opportunity for the bride-to-be to have photos of everyone participating in the event, so no one feels left out, and it is a memorable experience by everyone there! The most fun memory of photographing Alexa’s bachelorette was definitely singing Shania’s “I feel like a woman” and can-canning in middle of the street outside of Casa Verona, but honestly, the entire experience was such a fun day!
I’m Laura, I have been photographing for 10 years, and most recently have been photographing weddings, bachelorette parties, engagements, and events for the last two years. I first began photographing events at the college I was attending, Mount Saint Mary’s, in Los Angeles, and that is where I fell in love with event photography. It is my favorite type of photography because it allows me to incorporate my style the best, which is in-the-moment, unposed photographs, that tell a story of the event that I am photographing. My approach is to always embrace the event and make it feel like I am part of it through the photos that I am taking so that the people who are seeing the photos really feel as if they are there themselves as well.
My advice is to book your bachelorette party in Palm Springs, first of all! And find a photographer whose style you like and ask them to do a photoshoot for an hour or two while you are celebrating. I have been told by more people that that was the best part of their bachelorette party experience, not only because it was documented, but it allowed for even more bonding with their bride tribe in a very unconventional way.
