Colorful Tropical Palm Springs Elopement

I was over the moon honored when Jess from Sentimental Fools asked me to photograph a styled elopement in Palm Springs while we were there for Alt Summit. I absolutely love working with Jess in Baltimore, and it meant so much that she wanted me to photograph something she worked so hard on in Palm Springs! Our theme was P.S. I Love You, because that’s the “motto” of Palm Springs!

Alexis and Dustin were our models, and they absolutely rocked it. They are such naturals, and their love for each other shines through their jokes and how easily they are able to make each other laugh.

One of my favorite parts about this styled elopement was that we scouted out locations all day the day before, but when the time came…we ended up just using the back of Kate, the florist’s, studio! I always love finding beauty in the most unexpected places, and this was the best on-the-spot decisions! The white walls with colorful trim were the perfect accent to all the brightly colored florals and Trina Turk outfits! I also loved that my bestfriend Brooke modeled as the officiant, it was fun having her on the other side of the camera!

This was one of my absolute favorite shoots for so many reasons, and being able to shoot in Palm Springs was a dream come true!!
