First of all, Joshua Tree National Park in California is a DREAM! Doing an adventure session in Joshua Tree… even better. This is one of my favorite sessions of all time, and I’m super excited to share the photos.
Liz and Brock were one of the winners of my west coast session giveaway (keep up with my travel schedule for more giveaways). Both of them work for Disneyland now, but they met a few years ago when Brock’s band was touring and visited Liz’s hometown. Like every teenage fantasy, Liz caught Brock’s eye from the stage and they ended up talking after the show. He friended her on Facebook, and they begin dating shortly after. Liz is also a talented SFX Makeup Artist and you can check out her work on Instagram!
Joshua Tree National Park is known for the giant branching yuccas, known as Joshua trees. They are the funny looking plants in these photos that don’t quite look like a tree but aren’t exactly a cactus or bush. More like something you would find in a Dr. Seuss book, they are pretty peculiar (which you know I love!). I was also told Joshua trees symbolize the strength and beauty that can arise from dysfunction, which is very cool. Joshua Tree National Park is also known for fan palm oases, seasonal gardens of cholla and ocotillo, and massive rock formations that attract avid rock climbers. Definitely a must see in the national park system.
I had the best time photographing Liz and Brock’s couples session in Joshua Tree. I would love to come back for more photo sessions, so if you know someone interested in eloping or looking to book a photographer there, I would be so grateful if you would share my contact info! Sessions can be booked by emailing [email protected].
