When Megan reached out about traveling from Seattle, WA for Joshua Tree engagement pictures, I was stoked! It’s one of our favorite locations to run in the desert sun and we love couples that travel far to see its beauty. Joshua Tree simply pulls in a certain energy and we love being the photographers for couples with that energy.
So why did Megan & Ryan choose Joshua Tree for their engagement session? Their favorite stories and moments with one another are while they are on a trip or on vacation. In fact, they recently got engaged on a trip to Hawaii, when Ryan completely caught Megan off guard early one morning. Ryan’s dad is in the military and actually lives in Joshua Tree. So when a trip to visit him on Thanksgiving came up, Megan & Ryan figured, what better opportunity than to have their engagement pictures taken while visiting Joshua Tree? Boom. And it was amazing. They are amazing.

why we loved their adventure
Here’s the thing about these two. Megan & Ryan live outside of Seattle, WA. So they have plenty of options for a gorgeous backdrops nearby. But in true Megan & Ryan style – adventure had to be mixed in. When a trip to Joshua Tree just happened to land in their path, it only made sense to have their engagement photos there.
Hell yes dude. Hell. Yes. If you love to adventure together as a couple, and your favorite memories are on trips– make a trip or adventure a part of how you celebrate YOU. We love when our couples follow the path that makes them come alive and sparks the chemistry of their real dynamic.
Also – any couple that’s down to kick-off and finish their session with a celebratory cheers, are total soul mates to us. Allen and I always bring our couples fav bevs along with some champagne- but Megan and Ryan came even more prepared. We kicked off their session with a celebratory toast and had a total blast running around Joshua Tree together. We finished their session with a champagne toast and group cheers with Ryan’s dad and stepmom. We totally didn’t want the fun to end. They even invited me out for dinner and some beers in town afterward. Best couple ever.
