Marfa/Big Bend Adventure Series Shoots

"West Texas Styled Shoot Series"

Host/Planner & Designer: Styled Shoots by Witt

Dates: Monday September 20th -Thursday September 23rd

(4 Days Total) 

*Starting at Sunrise Monday in Marfa Tx, and Ending at Sunrise on Thursday in Big Bend National Park*

~ Itinerary For the Week ~
Monday Sept. 20th *Day 1* 

Sunrise in Marfa

Our sunrise shoot will include,

- 1 Motorcycle Couple Shoot

- 2 General Engagement Couples

- 1 Elopement Couple

We will meet at 7:20am at a designated meeting spot, then I will split photographers into 4 groups (4-5 Photographers per group). 

Shoot will begin at 7:45am, each rotation will have 30min to shoot with 5min in between to get to the next couple/area. I will then open the last 30 min up for a "free for all" time. 

Overall we will be done shooting before 11am. This way photographers have time to explore Marfa or they can head straight to Big Bend which is about an hour from Marfa Tx.

Sunset in Big Bend

The sunset shoot in Big Bend is only open to 5 photographers as an add on to the series of shoots. 

This will be a REAL Elopement, so I wanted to keep this shoot more private and intimate for our wonderful couple who volunteered to allow us to design and layout their elopement. 

They will have a few close family members and friends at the elopement.

Exact location inside the park is TBD. (I'm debating a few locations, its so hard to choose!)

Elopement ceremony will begin at 6:45pm and end 7pm. After ceremony pictures are from 7pm-8pm. (Sunsets at 8pm)

Tuesday Sept. 21st *Day 2* 

Sunrise Big Bend (exact locations TBD)

This morning we will have,

- 1 Camping themed Couple

- 1 Truck Bed Picnic Couple

- 1 Fun or Vintage Car Elopement Couple

- 1 Elopement Couple with their Dogs

All of our sunrise shoots will begin at about the same time. So photographers will meet at 7-7:20am at a designated location, then we will separate into groups to start at each station at 7:45am. Once again we will have 4 stations and groups of 4-5 photographers in each group. Each group will have 30min at their station before rotating, then 5min in between to get to the next spot. (I'm trying to keep all stations in a large but semi close area so we don't have to walk to far in between them).

Sunset Big Bend

This evening we will have, 

- 1 Engagement Couple with Horses

- 1 Steamy in River Couple

- 1 Fun Elopement Couple

- 1 Elopement Couple on small Boat

Photographers will meet at 5pm to section off into groups, then the shoot will begin at 5:20pm. Each group will have 30 min of shoot time at each station then 5 min to get to the next station. 

Since these shoots include horses and involve water we will have to be sure to use caution and common safety knowledge to ensure the models, animals, and photographers stay safe. 

Wednesday Sept. 22nd *Day 3* 

Afternoon Boudoir (Basecamp Terlingua)

For this shoot I thought everyone deserved a morning to sleep in! So this shoot will begin at 10am. Photographers will meet at 9:45am to organize into groups.

We will have 4 Solo Boudoir models spread out through the Tipis, if models are comfortable shooting in the outdoor areas then photographers are welcome to take them out.

Sunset Big Bend

We will have,

- 2 Hiking Elopement Couples

- 1 Engagement Couple

- 1yr Anniversary Wine & Cake Couple  

Photographers will meet at 5pm to section off into groups, then the shoot will begin at 5:20pm. Each group will have 30 min of shoot time at each station then 5-10 min to get to the next station. Just like the rest, we will have 4 stations and groups of 4-5 photographers in each group.

Be prepared to walk quite a bit for these shoots, I'm going to try and keep them close to each other, but our hiking couples will probably be the furthest out.

Thursday Sept. 23rd *Day 4* 

Sunrise Big Bend

For our last set of shoots for the series, I decided to add in a headshot swap station! I'm considering finding a photographer just to do head shots for us, or just letting us all swap. Ill see how much interest there is first.

Our last set of shoots will include,

- 1 Engagement Couple with Dogs

- 1 Elegant Engagement Couple 

- 1 Shades of lavender Elopement 

- Headshot Swap 

I'm working on securing the lavender dress in the bottom right side of the mood board for our elopement couple. Since this will be our last shoot of the series i wanted to have more of an all out "glam" vibe for this one. Gorgeous dramatic dresses, fun colors and this will be the only shoot with a table scape.

~ Photographer & Videographer Tickets & Info ~

This an Adventure and Elopement geared series of styled shoots out in the beautiful area of West Tx. I wanted these shoots to be as authentic as possible. Usually when I shoot real life elopements there is not a lot of "fluff" involved. Its all about the couple, sweet intimate details, and the gorgeous scenery around them. So most of these shoots do not have a table scape or large arches and such. Just beautiful bouquets, dresses, small details, and the amazing locations. A few shoots will include vehicles, cars/trucks, and animals. Our last shoot of the series is actually our only shoot with a table scape.

But unlike other full wedding shoots that have a lot of décor and props, for this series I now get to focus more time on researching some amazing and unique dress/suit options, scout more locations, and plan out the wonderful florals.

To say I am extremely excited is an understatement!

I am planning on having a few lgbtq couples as well!

This series includes a total of 20 Couples and 4 Solo Boudoir Models

I'm using Basecamp Terlingua for our lodging location. So if you choose an option with lodging this is where we will be staying! Basecamp Terlingua is amazing! They also have "bubble" rooms available at higher prices if you'd like to look into that option, you can go to their site Basecamp Terlingua 

They do book VERY far in advance, so in order for me to secure all of the Tipis we need deposits do have to be sent ASAP if you'd like an option that includes lodging. 

Some Tipis are for 1-2 people only and some can hold up to 6 people. Just depends on the option you choose.

But again I do need to know asap because I have talked with the camp and if we reserve enough then we can have a whole section of the camp to ourselves.

The tents include a Mini Fridge, a sink, and a microwave. Bathrooms and showers are located next to the Tipi area and are shared with everyone in the Tipi section. Which is why I want to try and secure a whole section for just us, that way only us would be using the designated showers/bathrooms near our camp. No other campers would be in our area.
