Mia and Jay wanted to do something completely different for their wedding, so they eloped in Joshua Tree, with just the them, a friend to officiate the ceremony and another to take the pictures. In fact, these photos look like something out of a fashion editorial shoot rather than a real wedding don’t you think!?
After the ceremony, they buried a time capsule to commemorate the day. “We wanted to tell our story with our wedding, The Desert Noir Story (our surname is Noir)”, said Mia. “We knew we wanted to have a time capsule that contained trinkets of the past six years including our written vows and letters we’d written each other. We will come back in say, 20 years, to dig it up and we won’t know what the letters say until then! We wanted to come up with a creative story around it for the photos, so we shot it like we were burying something we’d stolen from a heist at a bank! Our overall inspiration was Bonnie & Clyde, dark moody colours, and film noir.”
