Joshua Tree Boho Styled Elopement | California Elopement Photographer

Joshua Tree National Park is the PERFECT backdrop for a romantic desert elopement and the sunsets there are some of the most amazing I’ve ever seen. These photos are the best proof I can give you!

Zo’e is a model babe for real for real but I think we can all agree her husband Mike is also a model?! I love the hashtag she’s been using on instagram: #getmikeysigned hahaha. Seriously, they were just amazing to photograph together and so much fun!! Oh, and the FLOWERS. Ale created the dreamiest floral arrangements that complimented the desert colors and the overall theme of our shoot so perfectly!! *heart eyes*

Want photos like this but don’t want to miss out on spending your wedding day with all your friends and family? Schedule an adventure session sometime after your wedding (or before — early first look, anyone??) in an epic location that’s special to the two of you! Any excuse to put your dress back on is a good idea, right??

January 2018 Styled Shoot

YOU GUYS. I'm so excited to finally share these!! This was my very first styled wedding shoot ever and I'm so happy with how it turned out! I had been wanting to do one of these for a while because it's my dream to shoot weddings regularly and having just moved to a new state I really wanted to build connections in the industry. Julia (from KC Hopper Invites) contacted me at the perfect time back in November so we decided to start planning this together right away! She makes beautiful invitations and stationery in addition to custom laser cut wood pieces. The menu shown in the second photo below is one of my favorites! 

We found an amazing florist, cake shop, and event decor specialist to collaborate with us and they worked together to create not just one, but TWO beautiful table set ups. I LOVED photographing all the little details. We held our shoot at the University Club of Pasadena and I still can't get over how great they are. Kelli, the director of catering, and all of the other employees were so kind to us and even fed us before we left (5 stars from me).  

Our models Miles and Aimee, are a real married couple and of course they were adorable and fun to work with. The gown Aimee is wearing was made by a local dress designer and her hair and makeup was done by the talented Carla Chacon. We also had a videographer there as well, so stay tuned for the video coming soon!  

Below are photos are from one of the two different themes we created, but I will be posting photos from the second one on my Instagram soon! Check out the list of vendors at the end of this post to see everyone involved.

Huge thanks to everyone who participated and helped make this shoot such a success!
