Had the opportunity to photograph a beautiful engagement session in Joshua Tree!
Paige and Jason gave me the honor of shooting their elopement in Yucca Valley at the Desert Cobalt Oasis. It was a photographer’s dream come true!!! This was my first ever elopement and it was in Joshua Tree, which is one of my most favorite places!!
Their wedding was so intimate and customized to them. Between having their dog at their side during the entire ceremony, to having a create your own taco bar for dinner, I was blown away at how simple and elegant this whole ordeal was. It gave me a whole new perception on getting married. You don’t need fancy expensive decor and vendors, you don’t need 100 guests, 80% of whom you probably haven’t talked to in 5 years. You just need those who matter most to you, and you can make the most of it.
My favorite parts of this day were when Jason serenaded Paige with the song of the band that was playing during the time he proposed to her. He sang and his groomsmen played the instruments. Also, they played a slideshow that was centered around all the pictures they took together while dating. I legit started tearing up myself.
It’s safe to say a lot of us were tearing up that day, but in the words of the fun guys I met on this gorgeous sunny day, it was just so goddamn dusty out there!
