Joshua Tree Elopement Photographer Team
we're Lauren & allen
A husband & wife elopement & destination wedding photographer team based between Colorado & California. We travel the western U.S. & Mexico for adventurous & unordinary celebrations of love. We’ve been working together as a team for over 7 years and said adios to our traditional wedding plans and decided to elope back in 2019. We’ve helped couples from all over the world plan their elopement adventures and have traveled over 150,000k mi for love, most of which was while adventuring in our camper for 3 years! We’re all for breaking the rules. Life is too short, we have to follow our hearts. Wedding days seem like an important time to probably do that. ; )
How you celebrate your marriage is your legacy. We care about your story & show that through an elevated experience with emotional, artistic imagery that is yours and only yours. You deserve your moments documented by an elopement photographer team that values the meaning of your celebration as much as you do.

Our couples trust us to document their magic & create artistic and emotional images that tell their story. Your moments are priceless and deserve to be captured by people who care about your legacy. We believe your images should be anything but ordinary because your love is anything but ordinary. You deserve images that uniquely tell your story and two photographers with two perspectives, two angles and different lens depth allow for that.
Getting to know you, your love & the details of your story is one of our favorite parts of the photojournalism journey with you. Your trust allows us to intuitively capture your love the way it deserves to be remembered. Our couples lean on us for planning guidance, day-of coordination, timeline, vendor suggestions, location ideas and so much more to help make planning breezy. We love that we always feel like we’re old friends the day-of. We say fuck. Our heads are probably in the gutter. We generate at-least 1-3 inside jokes after our time together. But most importantly, we deeply care about your elopement day being the most meaningful and amazing day of your life.
Good energy is essential for good moments and starts with who you surround yourself with. We are 110% absolutely by your side with all the good juju, personal playlists, snacks, bevs, wearing 573 different hats to keep you feeling your best so you can have the best memories.

Joshua Tree Vibes For Your Elopement
Tranquil Desert Town
Unique Airbnbs & Lodging Experiences
A few years later, we ditched the traditions and decided on an elopement adventure entirely for us. And it was the most amazing day we never knew was possible for a wedding. But even when eloping, it was a challenge to not get caught up in "what do other people do” with so much being influenced. So we stopped scrolling. And paused. And asked ourselves, “What feels good to us? What do WE want to do?” And then had the best, most perfect day for US, and that’s all that mattered.
So I guess you could say we're pretty serious about making sure your elopement experience is unique and personally crafted to you. 😉 From planning, to day-of vibes and unique, artistic images - we want you to have the most personalized experience possible. (Learn more about our elopement.)
