Tim and I got married just over a year ago and since we moved to New York right after we tied the knot, we didn’t really get a chance to have a nice relaxing honeymoon. Sure, we took the train across country to the east coast, but with our wedding and the move right after it was just so hectic! Dreaming of a getaway where we could lounge in the sun all day, we decided that we would celebrate a honeyversary! We went to the oh-so-popular and oh-so-awesome Ace Hotel and Swim Club in the wonderfully hot Palm Springs and we had the best time ever. We love the mid century feel that Palm Springs has. All of the houses look so cool and the decorations are so retro-cool! While we were there we swam in the pool for hours on end, bought out all the records at the thrift stores, and of course, we did a photo shoot!
We loved our engagement photos so much that we wanted to have a similar vibe with our latest shoot. We shot our honeyversary photos with a tripod and wireless trigger, just like before, and of course we had to keep our retro flare! We incorporated our love of the 50s 60s and 70s and took inspiration from movies such as Gidget, Beach Party, and of course Palm Springs Weekend. We found a really great vintage movie projector at a thrift store so we had to use that somehow…and I think it turned out to be so special. I’m thinking this might be an annual tradition :) We hope you love the photos as much as we do.
