Vintage Joshua Tree Elopement Inspiration

January 28, 2021
Elopements, Weddings

This styled shoot is all the vintage Joshua Tree elopement inspiration you’ll ever need!

This was one of my fave shoots of all time! I work with the Shootout Society, a group that organizes gorgeoussss styled shoots for photographers to build their portfolios. They organized this styled shoot and Joshua Tree was the PERFECT location for it!!

Our amazing models, Jordan & Danielle, brought out allll the vintage, retro feels we wanted to capture in this shoot. At the beginning, we incorporated a bunch of fun props to accessorize the shoot, like disco balls! (Check out those light reflectionsss from the disco balls!) Cassidy of Noble Floral Co, a PNW floral designer, put together a freaking stunning setup full of florals for Jordan and Danielle. I neeed that circular rug in my own house – it was perfect for the Joshua Tree desert sand!

Danielle wore a gorgeous BHLDN gown, and Jordan wore a bold blue suit – who else thinks blue is underrated for wedding outfits?? It went perfectly with the reflections of the disco ball in the brown desert! Aaand the Shootout Society even rented a vintage car from Coachella Valley Classic Cars! Then, something special happened when we started photographing them with the car. . .

A Joshua Tree Surprise Proposal

Jordan got down on ONE KNEE!! Danielle had no idea what was happening and suddenly she realized she was being proposed to! Once it happened, there was emotion and so many smiles, and I’m so glad us photographers were there to capture the whole thing for them! Click here to see the beautiful surprise proposal!

After the two had celebrated by popping some champagne and taking everything in, we ran around Joshua Tree until sunset. Then, in the evening once it got dark, I shot with flash and some fun prisms to create fun, classic, vintage portraits of the two. In the end, it was so fun playing around with the vintage style of this bridal session!

This was such a fun day with the Shootout Society & the other photographers! Jordan & Danielle seriously embodied the classic style we wanted with all kinds of fresh and fun energy – the perfect combo for this vintage editorial session. I’ll be drooling over this shoot forever!

Before you leave, be sure to check out the moment Jordan proposed to Danielle during this shoot! Click here to see the Joshua Tree Surprise Proposal!

WHY we're the perfect match

WE ARE SOULMATES

Far far away, behind the word mountains, far from the countries Vokalia and Consonantia, there live the blind texts. Separated they live in Bookmarksgrove right at the coast of the Semantics, a large language ocean. A small river named Duden flows by their place and supplies it with the necessary regelialia. It is a paradisematic country, in which roasted parts of sentences fly into your mouth. Even the all-powerful Pointing has no control about the blind texts it is an almost unorthographic life One day however a small line of blind text by the name of Lorem Ipsum decided to leave for the far World of Grammar. The Big Oxmox advised her not to do so, because there were thousands of bad Commas, wild Question Marks and devious Semikoli, but the Little Blind Text didn’t listen. She packed her seven versalia, put her initial into the belt and made herself on the way.

Michelle is one of the most down to earth, genuine, amazing and talented people I’ve met. There is no other photographer I would rather have at my wedding besides Michelle. She captures love at its most beautiful moments and doesn’t leave any details out. Our photos were everything we wanted and more! Thank you Michelle for being THE BEST photographer and friend. We’ll cherish our photos (and you!) forever!
