One of the most spectacular natural Desert locations for an Elopement is Joshua Tree National Park. It’s stripped back beauty of bare rocks, desert sands, rugged cliffs, and Joshua trees, make it a unique and picturesque location. With just under 800,000 acres of Californian Desert, Joshua Tree National Park is the perfect location for an Elopement. The Bohemian Style was achieved beautifully, thanks to the excellent, creative, Wedding Vendors and their bounty of Bohemian vibe resources. As an adventurous traveling photographer, I never tire of these majestic photography sessions and this one, just captured my heart.
Any time of day works for a photo session but if you can pinpoint the best times, it is Sunrise and Sunset. The shadow and light cast by the sun waking up or going to bed make for stunning silhouettes with vibrant color backdrops. That’s one of the reasons why this styled Elopement Session happened at Sunset. In planning any event, the time of day is a necessary consideration for many reasons and photography is one of them. To plan your Elopement at Joshua Tree National Park, a Special Park Use Permit will be needed and costs $120.

The model couple James and Chelsea look amazing together in their gorgeous Elopement Attire. Chelsea’s looked stunning in an ASOS EDITION Ciara sequin kimono sleeve white dress with white leather point toe block-heel mules. Her hair is bohemian princess style with a crown of braids, plaits, and cascading curls. Chelsea’s Tuscan palette makeup looks altogether lovely, and James looks fantastic in a fitted black suit.
Together on the desert floor, scaling the massive boulders, or positioned under the Joshua tree, the Elopement Portraits showcase beauty. The table setting under the tree is so romantic, I love the color scheme and the way the Vendors create an intimate setting. The Bohemian Chic Floral arrangements at the base of the rugged rocks and the gorgeous Bridal bouquet are some of the prettiest I’ve seen. They showcase how the Bohemian Desert Vibe at Joshua Tree National Park is indeed an outstanding location for your very special photo session. Special thanks to the ‘Wildly In Love’ Elopement Planners, what a delightful space these Vendors created together. I am always grateful to work with such professional Vendors and know teamwork makes the dream work!
