We are incredibly thrilled to share with you these chic desert engagement photos. Burnt orange hues, cacti and an iconic VW bus are a few aspects that make this stylish session the beauty that it is.
It’s all about open spaces and a one-of-a-kind love with this couple, what a most perfect combo. The sun setting brings on a moody tone and offers the perfect lighting complementing each and every detail. Photographer’s Randy + Ashley share that this session was, “basically just the best time ever.” If you’re looking for some vintage desert chic engagement inspo then get ready to take notes because Natalie and Garrett’s session have those words written all over it.
From the Photographer…
When Natalie + Garrett asked us what we thought about their idea to rent a vintage VW bus for their engagement session our in Joshua Tree, we may or may not have jumped up and down like kid’s in Willy Wonka’s chocolate factory with an American Express black card. But nothing – nothing – could have really prepared us for just how perfect the VW bus would be for their shoot until they showed up with it, in all its orange, vintage glory.
It really fit in with who they are – always up for adventure and camping; in fact, Garrett proposed to Natalie on an RV trip to Zion National Forest around Christmastime, so shooting their engagement session in another national park just totally fit them to a “T.”We spent the afternoon hiking around on the busiest weekend ever – not only was it the first week of most people’s spring break, but it also happened to be Easter weekend, so Joshua Tree was crowded as heck. But! Eventually we found the perfect spot, and we watched the sunset over the jumbo rocks, talking about their upcoming destination wedding in Palm Springs next winter (which we are super stoked about.)
