I knew when our family moved to Southern California, that one of the places I was most excited about capturing some Joshua Tree Engagement Photos! That was on my bucket list and I would make it happen ASAP!

I have never really seen a desert quite like this, except for when I photographed this wedding in Arizona, but all I had ever heard was the incredible beauty of Joshua Tree!

And I knew I had to capture some beautiful love there!!

Joshua Tree Engagement Photos

Enter Megan and Jeremy, and that dream came true!!!! Megan and Jeremy are a recently engaged couple, trying to navigate planning a 2021 wedding in the midst of a global pandemic, and these photos were just the bright spot that they needed during all of that!

These two high school got engaged this year after 8 years together at Corona del Mar State Beach, with that beautiful Tiffany diamond, and it was absolutey perfect!

What I loved most about Megan and Jeremy’s Joshua Tree Engagement Session was not only the beauty of Joshua Tree, but how Megan and Jeremy had two different looks (which I always recommend!) And both outfits were amazing! And the matching Vans?!?! I think Van’s needs go just go on and sponsor them!

Check out these amazing Joshua Tree Engagement Photos below!

Megan’s black lace dress was one of my absolute favs! And those carry shots? That was not planned!!! It was actually Jeremy was actually picking Megan up because her dress kept getting caught on these pokey sticks, and he picked her up to help, and I captured that perfect shot! Great timing!

Megan and Jeremy’s testimonial was so incredible! I truly love my couples and I hope to attract more couples just like them!

Having Vanessa take our engagement photos was a dream!! Our photos are STUNNING and we can’t wait to use them for our save the dates! She was recommended to us by one of our friends who is using her for their wedding and we can’t wait to work with her in the near future! From the beginning, we felt so comfortable with her and knew we could trust her with such special photos. Vanessa truly is one of the best in her field!!!
