Joshua Tree Vibes For Your Elopement

Tranquil Desert Town​

If there's ever a spot you can take a trip to and feel life slow down a bit and dive deep into your soul - the desert of Joshua Tree is it. Don't forget to also check out landers, pioneer town, yucca valley and Twentynine Palms nearby; the neighbors to Joshua Tree that also serve up the same serene vibe. these pockets of the California desert promote detaching, taking deep breaths, deeply feeling the energy of the earth and souls around you. Making it one of my favorite towns to visit. There's a piece of comfort here to me that always feels like home each time I come back. Sharing that experience and vibe with kindred spirits is an exceptional feeling.

Mid-Century Influence

Joshua Tree is a place to unplug and distract yourself with everything simple and amazing - like life in the mid-century. and for that reason alone - is one of my favorite places on earth. I love to come here to write, listen to great music, paint, take in the sunsets, hike, watch meteor showers, enjoy outdoor showers and take in all the scenery. the airbnb designs are all designed around this vibe making for some of the best and most unique airbnb homes to rent - especially for small or private events like elopements or weddings. It's a great balance of getting a taste of the wild desert, slowing down your moments while still having a comfortable and modern place to chill at.

Joshua Tree Dark Sky Viewing

A couple hours outside of LA and San Diego, you will find some of the darkest skies in the southwestern U.S. So rad in fact, a group of scientists, artists, musicians and healers collaborated to build a compound to take in the magic of the desert and it's night sky, and called it The Integratron. This remote location and sound bath house, is geographically placed directly in the middle of a dark sky area in an area called Landers, not far from Joshua Tree. It's a chilling spot to view the stars, take a sound yoga bath, rent for a retreat or escape to the nearby wilderness to do on your own. The picture you're looking at above is from one of our favorite campsites, just minutes away from the Integratron. It's by far one of our favorite desert escapes and where our adventure cat fifi learned how to catch her first lizard. If you're also a fan of the night sky and find yourself getting lost looking up, I know a Joshua Tree Photographer team that would love to meet you. 😉

Don't settle or regret not having the Joshua Tree Adventure you know you deserve

We’re Lauren and Allen we’re so glad you’re here. That’s us cliffside in Sedona on our elopement day. Many moons ago, we almost went through with having a traditional wedding. We hit a wall with planning (thankfully) and realized the wedding day we were leaning into wasn’t "us". Like a lot of others, we were just going through the motions. It didn’t feel right at all, so we decided to call it off.

A few years later we ditched the traditions and decided on a private wedding adventure entirely about us and the life we enjoy sharing together. But even when eloping, it was a challenge to not get caught up in "what do other people do” and scroll through endless photos influencing what eloping looks like. It was exhausting and almost made us feel like we weren't "good enough" to do something unique for us. 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 perfectly imperfect day—filled with machaca tacos we made ourselves, a cliffside hike, first dance around a campfire, getting ready in glamp tent and more. It was entirely us, and that’s all that mattered. (Learn more about our elopement day here.)

Ready to do this? Here’s how this works:

  • Reach out to us.
  • We'll meet and chat about your vision(s) in mind for Joshua Tree.
  • We’ll guide you with personal support so your adventure will be 110% authentic to you.
  • You'll have a wedding adventure you’re proud of— not settle or regret choosing anything less than what you deserve.

We’re passionate about personally crafting, capturing and celebrating everything that makes your love yours. Nothing phony. Nothing fake. An adventure and memories of your wedding day that you’ll be proud of, with elopement photographers that have been there and get it.
