These two lovers just recently got married and were kind enough to let us photograph them as part of the most recent Desert Shootout put on by the queen of the desert, Brianna Broyles. They are the freaking cutest couple ever and it was so much fun getting to celebrate them as recent newlyweds.
If you're a photographer and you're looking to connect with some ridiculously talented people, make sure you don't miss her future styled shoots here: https://www.thedesertshootout.com/.
If you are a bride planning your wedding, poach off the vendor list at the bottom of this gallery. Also, check out Joshua Tree or Palm Springs for cool unique Airbnbs. Those combined with the gorgeous open desert make for the perfect spot to elope, get married, get engaged, or just be hot and in love.
Don't miss the shots on film at the bottom of this post.
I shot a couple rolls of film on my Yashica-D and Canon AE-1 while I was there too. You can see those below. Joshua Tree at sunset is the best spot to be in world. The desert starts to glow and everything just turns magical.
You made it this far? I freaking love you. If you're in need of a photographer, or looking to grow your photography business, hit the buttons below. <3
