Buckle up, because B + A took “wild” to a whole new level! Out in the heart of the desert, they brought their vintage bronco, their trusty campsite-on-wheels, and their dirt bikes for an adrenaline-packed session that’s like something out of a rockin’ adventure movie. With dust kicking up around them, they looked like the ultimate desert daredevils – conquering the landscape with a flair that’s just plain awesome. Imagine it: the sun dipping low, casting a warm glow on their laughter as they posed by the bronco and revved up those dirt bikes. It’s like they’re writing their own desert anthem, and the cacti are dancing along. From the sandy trails to the starlit campfire, this session was like a high-five to all things wild and free.

Southern California has all the warm sandy beaches for your ceremony and trendy postnuptial drinks spots you could want…BUT that’s just the tippity top of the (desert) iceberg! You’ll also find: sand dunes, slot canyons, islands, and stargazing! SoCal has so much to offer the couples that want to venture off the beaten path and the couples simply want to venture to a quiet spot to catch the sunset.

You already have some of the pieces for your elopement: the love of your partner, the bravery to do something different for your wedding day, and the desire to create memories, not just photographs. The next step is picking a location. A great place to start is by simply imagining your wedding day. Is there an ocean breeze, the sounds of waterfalls, or the smell of juniper? Are you dusty from dancing in desert sands or are you wet from skipping rocks into the ocean waves? If any of these ring true for you then Southern California could be the perfect place for your elopement.

Here, let me show you a few spots!

Get ready to turn up the groove, because this engagement session was pure homey happiness! L + N brought the house down – literally – during their in-home session in a rad Palm Springs crib. Imagine this: twirling around the record room, their laughter syncopating with the music. Vinyl beats and love’s rhythm, what a combo! And that’s not all, folks. The kitchen turned into their hangout hub, where they whipped up love as savory as any dish. Mixing giggles, they gave the room a run for its money in the “cuteness” department. Who knew that walls could practically blush? From the record spins to the heartwarming kitchen chats, this session was a real-life love song, and Palm Springs was the perfect chorus.

Step into a time machine, folks, because M + C’s session was a retro blast in the heart of the desert! Picture this: a quirky outdoor art museum becomes the backdrop for a love story that’s straight out of a vintage postcard. These two rocked the scene with their throwback style and killer attitudes. Amidst the eclectic sculptures and eye-popping installations, they were like modern-day art themselves, adding their unique brushstrokes to the canvas of desert nostalgia. From groovy poses to laughter that echoed through the artistic corridors, they turned the museum into a playground of love. It’s like they were channeling the spirit of the past while spinning their own love tale. Move over, art – these two just stole the show!

B, C and I had an amazing time in the scenic desert of Palm Springs! It seems like a no brainer to take advantage of the stunning landscape and the complete quite the desert has to offer while in California. Not to mention the fact that the B + C looked amazing – B in his white shirt with dark slacks and C in her exquisite Rue De Seine dress, they were a vision! This unique combination of classic and modern elements created a beautiful space to capture their energy and love.
