Check out this BEAUTIFUL retro Palm Springs wedding! Once again the wedding photography gods smiled upon us and gifted us a beyond cool couple, at a funky cool retro Palm Springs estate! A retro VRBO rental played the backdrop to a glorious celebration of family and friends.
I’ll come out right now and tell ya that I swore off summer weddings in the desert years ago after sweating through multiple shirts in 115 degree weather… but every now and again I make an exception for the exceptional. Kathy and Len were just that. My kind of people with goals of pulling off a small but wild party poolside at a VERY cool VRBO rental they found in the typical Palm Springs retro architectural fashion. Thats right, I said poolside!! and you know towards the end of the night that is exactly where the party ended up! And why not!? with enough booze and desert heat it no longer becomes a crazy idea, but a necessity 😉 If I can get a few more of these kinds of parties I can totally justify picking up an underwater housing for my camera and taking the pool party wedding to the next level. As of now I maintain well above water level when snapping cannon balls and sailor dives. Sure, the Canon 5Dm4 has weather sealing but Im not gonna test out just how good it is by submerging it! lol For now I keep a safe distance when water is involved although warm as it was, had I fallen in it probably would have dried of in minutes.
As the photos below will show ya, this party was complete with parasols for protection from the sun. A taco truck was serving up unlimited street tacos to soak up the booze from massive self hosted bar and of course the the best part was the giant pool in the backyard! There were also a variety of pool floaties [swan, flamingo, duck] kept even the most inebriated guests afloat, even if it was only temporary. Such an amazing day and night in the desert. Oh and a kick ass photobooth by SD Photobus! Sooooo many great candid moments poured out all day long… smiles n tears.. sometimes simultaneously! Wedding photography in Palm Springs doesnt get much better than this!
