Joshua Tree Desert Shoot

Today we're sharing even more breathtaking photos from our Joshua Tree Desert styled shoot. 100 Layer Cake recently featured it


. Be sure to watch the video, it's one of my faves!


This shoot was so much fun to plan. Working with rich marsala and turquoise colors was a nice refreshing change from the typical pastels and gold seen in most weddings. Our models were a dream to work with! So much chemistry... the desert is already hot, but they made it smokin'!


The design for this shoot would be perfect for any Fall or Winter wedding, and really any time of year in Southern California. We loved using the hint of cultural inspiration with the native american ojo de dios and the brides shawl (it's actually a table runner!).

Kristine Ann

wrote out a really sweet Indian prayer that could have been used during a ceremony for vows.


Our creative juices were overflowing with this styled shoot. Amanda from

Thorne Artistry

created not one, but three looks! How sexy are those bikini shots?


 I'm already itching to get back to the desert for our next Palm Springs wedding this October. There's just nothing like that beautiful desert landscape!
