Inspired by aviator pilots, Melissa Fe Chapman Photography and Playful Soul Photography wanted to recreate an aviator theme wedding featuring a Mr. and Mrs. Co-pilot. This styled shoot was drawn from the idea of an adventurous couple who meets an explosive crash landing. However, their love triumphs all and they land in a desert. To add to the effect of a plane crash, black smoke bombs covered the Eldorado Canyon, resulting in stunning and fierce photographs.

A mixture of dried and fresh florals were used to create the bridal bouquet, inspired by the sands of the desert in combination with traditional military colors. The groom's attire resembled that of a military aviator pilot with a classic black tux and pair of aviator sunglasses, and the bride wore a modern white jumpsuit with a chic sheer cape to show the movement in the air and add a touch of femininity to her look. Once landed, the couple hit the open road and enjoyed the vast Las Vegas desert!
