Exploring Joshua Tree | Destination Elopement Photographer

Joshua Tree National Park

We have a bad habit of over-scheduling our travels. When we travel to a new place, we want to see EVERYTHING. In May, we spent a week in California. We flew into Los Angeles, then headed up the Pacific Coast Highway toward Big Sur. On the way, we met up with our new friends Lauren + Erik for a sunset Adventure Session at El Matador Beach. We then spent a couple days in Morro Bay and then hiked through Limekiln State Park. So it would only make sense that we would also drive all the way to Joshua Tree National Park (with a quick stop at Disneyland on the way).

Joshua Tree is incredible to say the least! The landscape is unlike anything I've ever seen. As we did our short hike (that's all we had time for), we felt like we were exploring an alien planet. There is just something so magical about the desert! After the sun had completely disappeared, we were able to capture some amazing astro photos of the Milky Way.
