Desert Wedding Ideas

for a Boho Couple

I had so much going on last year in spring I forgot to show this styled shoot on my blog.  It’s hard to think it was a year ago I took these beautiful photos in Joshua Tree, California.  That day we had some crazy weather. 

My drive from Las Vegas started at 3 am and I made it to Joshua Tree minutes before it started to snow.  Mind you there was no prediction of snow the night before but that’s what you can expect from high desert weather.  Unpredictable craziness with no warning and that’s pretty much how the rest of the day went as well.  It was super cold and breezy. 

Cut to a few weeks after the workshop and I had my edits done and sent out a few emails for publishers.  I was elated when the publishers at Ultimate Weddings asked if they could feature a few of my images but not all were able to be featured.  There were so many great ones that didn’t make the final cut to their site. 

Just for you readers I have the article below. 


The images include a copper/macrame alter, geometric copper succulent cake, cream, pink florals, a tiny tavern, laser cut wood name cards, all at a B&B in the high desert.  Below is a list.
