Joshua Tree, CA.

If you've ever thought about eloping... Do it. If you've ever thought about eloping in Joshua Tree... DO IT. So often couples think that eloping won't give them the same special feeling, but I promise you can include just as much detail and intention behind your elopement! This shoot was shot in the most perfect place (in my opinion) in Joshua Tree. The way the sunsets over the trees and the rocks is truly incredible and there's nothing like it. The floral colors complimented the Groom's suit so well, and it was all around perfect. I've heard a few couples tell me "I wish we could just elope, but I just don't want to miss out on our special day" so here's my response to that...
What do you want to remember about you wedding day? Do you want to remember how in love you are? Do you want to go on an epic adventure with the love of your life... on your wedding day? Do you want to have gorgeous florals, or is that not your priority? Does creating a guest list stress you out? Is there family drama surrounding YOUR day? Yep, I said it... sometimes the drama and stress alone makes your dream day not feel so dreamy. Do you want something a little untraditional? If the thought of eloping is tempting, ask other couples if they would do it again! Reach out to a photographer (i'm always happy to share) and see what a "typical" elopement looks like or pick their brain for ideas! For example, I have two brides eloping this fall in Sedona, they like to go bouldering so they're still going to do their first look and then go bouldering in their dresses!!!
Take it from me, eloping is just as special and will no doubt be the best day of your life!
