Using a theme for your engagement shoot can really play a big part in what makes it memorable and personalized. And for the couple who likes to get off the beaten track, an adventure themed shoot – just like this gem by Rose Wheat Photography – is ideal. The concept for the shoot goes something like this… a couple finds themselves in an obscure bit of terrain whilst out and about on a road trip. Along the way, they decide to take a break and explore the area. They have taken just a few belongings: a Mexican throw blanket, some old luggage, and a camera (of course) to document their voyage. After a gorgeous day of new discoveries and romantic moments, they ride off into the sunset, refreshed by the cool of the night.
From the Photographer
Growing up in Kansas, I’ve always had a passionate desire to travel, so it only seemed appropriate the theme of the shoot be “Celebrate Adventure.” It was an ode to the excitement that accompanies seeing new places and the intimacy it sparks when said places are discovered with loved ones.
We shot at Monument Rocks, which is a collection of chalk pyramids in Western Kansas. The majority of Kansas looks nothing like this, so it made for a really unique backdrop considering our location. Alisha Markle is the fantastic model featured in the shoot. Posing with her is her handsome and willing boyfriend Lincoln Griffin (hence the chemistry). The 1981 CJ7 was provided by Oakley Motors out of Oakley, KS.
All the details came together perfectly the day of the shoot, the weather was ideal, and the breeze was model-ready. All in all, things went according to plan!
