Hey Lovers.

ELOPING IS THE WAY TO AN INCREDIBLY authentic & meaningful celebration.

What is an

Elopement?

An elopement is a small, intimate wedding where you create your own rules for how you want to be married.

Eloping is for you if:

Want to know which area of Joshua Tree National Park is perfect for you to elope at and explore?

Looking through the pictures always brings back the feeling of that day, the love of our friends and some very magical moments.

“We knew we were creating a non-traditional/casual wedding so we really wanted to find a photographer who got it and would capture the feeling while also being a part of it.

Julie was so great and fit right in to the flow of our wedding! She was able to get up close and personal…capturing amazing moments all while remaining virtually invisible. The way she worked with us individually was super fun and loving. Instead of feeling pressured and on-the-spot, we really felt like we could just be ourselves.

The pictures are BEAUTIFUL! Julie captured it perfectly. It seemed like she was always in the right place at the right time to snap a magical moment. Looking through the pictures always brings back the feeling of that day, the love of our friends and some very magical moments.”

Imagine this...

The sun is low in the sky and the quiet surrounds you.​

Or it’s like, spectacular wild roaring wind.

You've seen some amazing desert curiosities today.

It's freakin' beautiful and it feels so free.

ELOPING BY YOURSELVES OR WITH A SMALL, INTIMATE CREW GIVES YOU TIME TO RELAX, WANDER, AND ENJOY EVERY MOMENT WITH YOUR FAVORITE PERSON.

Elopement look like?

My partner and I (and the rest of our families!) are very camera shy and Julie made us feel very comfortable and special throughout the day.

“I highly recommend Julie! She made all the planning very easy and was in fast-communication all the way up to the day of the event.  I appreciated that she checked-in to make sure all our photography requests were honored. My partner and I (and the rest of our families!) are very camera shy and Julie made us feel very comfortable and special throughout the day. She was detailed oriented and so thoughtful in the directions she gave us. Julie has a lovely presence and vibe and we felt so honored she was there to capture our wedding moments. ”
