Chanelle + Ryan

western boho elopement in joshua tree national park

About this Elopement:

Chanelle and Ryan chose to elope in Joshua Tree National Park, with the whole desert to themselves. Chanelle and Ryan are playful and quirky lovers who spend their time traveling, playing cards, and simply enjoying each other’s company. So of course, their sunset elopement session had to include all of their favorite things. Their outfits were complete with Western touches–cowboy hats, boots, bolos, and turquoise jewelry. 

Joshua Tree National Park is a beautiful place to hold your newlywed sunset photos! The Joshua trees and giant boulders are iconic, and the light at sunset is incredibly soft and beautiful. There truly is nothing like Joshua Tree National Park on a warm evening. It’s the perfect spot for couple sessions, engagements, elopements, and anniversaries.
