Intimate Joshua Tree Elopement

This night was the most gorgeous minimalist Joshua Tree elopement with Braden and Lauren.

We all met at one of my favorite spots in Joshua Tree National Park. Joshua tree is seriously one of my favorite places and it never gets old. I love the desert vibe, the Joshua trees, and the secludedness. The sunsets in Joshua Tree are always some of the best and the blue hour is just unbeatable. I was so excited for this minimalist Joshua Tree elopement with these two.

Braden & Lauren are just about the sweetest people you’ll ever meet. They both have hearts of gold and their love is so tender and sweet to watch. They just brought their carefree vibes and I AM HERE FOR IT!! Not to mention, they are so dang cute and looked amazing in the wedding attire.

Braden wore a Modern but casual suit. His tan jacket and black pants were the perfect effortless groom outfit. He wore his suit jacket open with no tie to keep the look effortless. In addition, Lauren was the most stunning desert bride. She wore the prettiest dress by Mia Riley Design. It was so simple, yet elegant with the sweetheart neckline and thin straps. Lauren paired it with a gorgeous boho lace wedding shawl that made the whole look.

You wouldn’t be able to tell but it was a cold and windy evening and Joshua Tree. Braden and Lauren made the wind work and embraced the weather. Lauren’s dress flowed so beautifully in the wind and I was actually stoked on the weather that day! Lastly, As the sun was setting, we ran around the desert, explored, and had the best time!

This Joshua Tree elopement was filled with so much desert wedding inspo and it made me so excited to shoot more here!
