Back in September we teamed up with the talented Mandy from Mi Amore Photography to do a styled wedding photoshoot at Aldea at Tlaquepaque. We have anxiously been waiting to receive the pictures and we are now so thrilled to be sharing them! The concept for the photoshoot was that perfect mix of classic, holiday fun with a slight edge. The details fell into place perfectly, from the grooms sharp tux and red velvet bow tie to the brides tattoo sleeve and crimson red lips to the dramatic floral pieces amongst the romantic twinkle lights, this shoot felt like a festive, intimate wonderland! Trust us you’re going to want to pop a bottle of bubbly and put on your favorite tunes and soak in all this beauty!
Shoutout to our stylist Renee for pulling off this classic edgy bride look!
Also, be sure to book Babydoll Weddings for any of your upcoming weddings or holiday parties!
Also thank you to all the amazing vendors that made the photoshoot come together!

It is always a joy when we have the opportunity to work with Fully Alive Photography; especially when a bride we both had was featured as a “Real Bride” in the most recent Phoenix Bride and Groom magazine! Tracy’s photos are beautiful and she has such a sweet spirit we love that we are able to feature her and her company for this Friday’s Friendor. Read more below about her soon to be exciting plans!
Here at Babydoll Weddings the work and play never stop! Among the busy wedding season we were invited to participate in a gown shoot for Arizona Weddings’ newest issue (on news stands). It was a treat to be able to work some of the best wedding professionals in the industry as well as being able to have fun with them at the drop party a few weeks later. We are so excited to feature some of our favorites from that shoot and being able to show off the marvelous work of our artists and of those of all the vendors that were a part of the team.
With inspiration taken from the Spanish Colonial mixed with soft pinks and greens and a touch of some classic elements made this styled shoot a joy to be a part of. If you are a bride with more of a classic taste but still wanting a touch of bright colors or is wanting more of subtle details than you will be in love with everything about this shoot!

As some of you may know the past three months for Babydoll Weddings has been quite hectic. With weddings, events and photoshoots; we’ve barely had time to breathe. Now we’ve been able to sit back, take a breath and dig into all of the newest issues of the magazines, look at all of the submitted wedding photos and the all of the gorgeous shots from the photo shoots. We have chosen our favorite shots from the photoshoot we were able to participate in for AZ Finest Weddings magazine at The Carefree Resort and we are so excited to share them with you!
Shots filled with deep oranges and soft pinks set against a beautiful backdrop of cacti and desert scenery made for a dreamy desert wedding. Delicate lace sleeves on a floor length gown and details of pearls and twine really made this styled shoot a mix of desert and romance. It was so hard to pick our favorites! Read more below and be sure to pick up a copy of the magazine today!
We had the great privilege of being a part of a styled shoot at the CopperWynd Resort thanks to Arizona Weddings. It is such a wonderful thing to work with such talented and kind individuals in the wedding industry. StepOnMe Photography captured all of these gorgeous shots with a stunning backdrop of the McDowell Mountains and with details of desert plants, gold and a lace gown to die for; needless to say it is a styled shoot bursting with inspiration for a desert wedding.
So now that you have the back story to the amazing photoshoot Babydoll Weddings did with Strut Bridal at Chateau Luxe I can now dive even deeper into the process, the looks and the creativity that we all put into this shoot. Since I feel that every look deserves their own this post will be all about one look and one stylist. And I don’t think everyone wants to read a 15 page post which is what would happen if all four looks were in one post.
We will start with the Classic look which was given to Micky. Of course as you all know before the shoot I created inspiration boards for the stylists to use to gain some idea what I wanted the outcome to be. Thanks to Pinterest and past brides I gathered pictures of what I felt looked like the classic bride. Of course when this was handed to Micky I made sure to tell her this is inspiration but please do what you feel will make your model, Megan, look like a classic bride.
With the help of Ashley from Strut Bridal we were able to pair the dresses to the looks prior to the shoot. Megan was wearing a stunning gown! A fitted champagne/ivory mermaid style gown with a ruffle bottom and lace details. It was so amazing and fit her perfectly! I have to say the ladies at Strut Bridal rock at fitting girls and dresses!
And then comes Micky with all of her talents and experience and turned Megan into exactly what I expected a classic bride to look like! She used a dark red lipstick which made the ivory color of the dress pop! And then Micky pulled her hair back in a gorgeous bun and completed the look with the two details that screams classic bride to me; the veil and the pearls. Absolutely in love! I am not talented in hair and makeup so being able to see an image you have created in your imagination come to life and be everything you wanted it to be a more; it’s a great feeling!
I’m sure I mentioned how excited I was to be able to book this shoot at Chateau Luxe and if not, I was very excited to be able to have this shoot there. With the glamorous chandelier when you first walk in, the beautiful and unique rooms and all of that wonderful furniture and decor that fills the halls; it seemed like the perfect fit for this shoot! It was such a success and I’m so excited to continue sharing photos and experiences from the other stylists and models from this shoot!
We are about to enter into wedding season and boy are we excited! But right now we’re in the planning stages on how to make sure this is our best wedding season yet. With this goal we thought about all of the steps of planning a wedding and how hair and makeup could be involved; and then it hit us, bachelorette parties! Why not have one of our talented stylists doll you and your wedding party up for a night out on the town? And to make it even better (yes it gets better) if you book services for 3 girls then your service is free! I know when I was a part of a bachelorette party I would have loved for someone to do my hair and makeup!
