Celestial Desert Elopement in Joshua Tree

I had been in a creative rut for the longest time! And one way to get out of it, is to set up a styled shoot with some local vendors to inspire and motivate you!! My vision was celestial vibes in the desert for a small intimate elopement. A team of the best female owned businesses helped bring my idea to life.

This couple had shot with me before for family shoots, and I asked them if they would be willing to get fake married for me in exchange for some photos! Needless to say they agreed.

I found an AirBnB located near Joshua Tree on a large plot of land so that we could have a place to go inside when it got too hot, and for us to have access to drinks and snacks.

I had gone to Hannah Lu Floral’s house to pick up the floral arrangements on the way and just see below to see how amazing they are! Right away Veronica started on the hair and makeup, and even brought cute star clips to go with the celestial theme!! Grace of The Table Service set up the sweetheart and dessert table, and my boyfriend put together the backdrop loaned to us by Time After Time Events! Everything was set up and we were given the cutest pastries from Mama Rosa Sweets!

I love everything about these pictures, and the celestial theme was perfect for the desert. It is only fitting that I use this as my first blog post on my brand new website!

I LOVE EVERY SINGLE PICTURE!!!! I literally just said you were the best thing about our wedding! Thank you so much for everything!!!!! Thank you for keeping me calm while we were running late and making sure we still got all the shots. I am sad that our wedding is over but hopefully we can be friends!!!! You are going to be not only our forever photographer but my whole family! I already want some with the dogs. I LOVE OUR PHOTOS THEY WERE EXACTLY WHAT I DREAMED OF!!!! Your pricing is WORTH it. Especially since the pictures are what you keep forever."

"I came across Nicoles IG page & knew she was the prefect photographer to book with for my maternity shoot, I was so lucky to have been able to book with her last minute for I was getting closer to my due date. She was super sweet & made my boyfriend and I comfortable working with her, absolutely in love with how beautiful the pictures came out and you can tell my boyfriend and I were very comfortable being ourselves with her & she captured beautiful moments of us genuinely laughing & smiling which really left me in awe with her work! She’s an amazing photographer and the pictures she sent me literally teared me up for how beautiful they came out. 10/10 would say don’t doubt to work with her & book her! She’s worth it & she would leave you in awe with her amazing gifted talent in photography! I look forward to book with her again to do family pictures with our newborn baby!"

"My wife and I eloped in Palm Springs and Nicole was our photographer. Not only did she make us both feel super comfortable, but she really did make us feel like models/princesses and just all around special. From the moment she and David arrived, they added ease to our day and made the day flow effortlessly. She is extremely passionate about her work and it is reflected by the good vibes she exudes. If we had to do this all over again, or for any shoot at that matter, we 10/10 should choose her again. :)"

"If we had to do this all over again..we 10/10 should choose her again."

"Where do I even begin? Nicole has been blessed with amazing photography skills! If anything she's an amazing person to work with and I am so happy the way our photos came out and were captured for our special moment. These photos will be forever cherished and we can be forever grateful for Nicole and her amazing work. She is so sweet, kind, professional -her assistant helped tremendously as well! I am so happy how everything turned out and HIGHLY recommend her for future photography work. You guys are so easy to work with- very knowledgeable too! Thank you for your dedication, your time, your hard work & your blessed skills! P.S. most importantly you made us feel so comfortable and be ourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
