Joshua Tree Wedding Photographer

Loralie & Bryan // Married in the Desert // Joshua Tree

Loralie and Bryan.  Two people who found each other and from the beginning made the decision they would live adventurously together.  They made zero plans except to fall deeper in love and make memories only the two of them could ever understand.  They would do things their way.


This is it.  These are the couples that scream LIZ to me.  When people like them find me it makes me feel like I'm doing something right.

They were to be married in the backyard Loralie played in as a little girl.  A wedding done right in her childhood home.


// A father of the bride who also served as the officiant and asked for each person to bless the rings as they were passed around.

//  Nieces and nephews ran around and played like it was any other day.

// An overwhelming sense of community and love.  Small and intimate.  Special.


A day focused on letting go, worrying less about floral arrangements and more on enjoying each other's company.  I watched them take a moment at the end of the night to quietly dance to their song without any announcement  People smiled from afar and it was almost like being let in on a little secret.

Let's Take a Drive // Joshua Tree

Joshua Tree.  A place I've always loved and a place she had never been before.  We packed our gear, stopped for coffee and headed east.  

Nicole and I have been friends for about four years now, but it seems as though we've been friends our whole lives.  We laugh uncontrollably together, we can talk shop all day long and best of all, we just get each other.  The best part of friendship in general, right?

// Some favorites from our little adventure + a short and sweet video I made from our day.  You can head on over to Nicole's blog right now to see things through her eyes too!
