Your Joshua Tree adventure wedding and elopement photographer.

Joshua Tree

I’m a California adventure wedding and elopement photographer for couples in love with one another and the outdoors. If you’re ready to exchange vows amongst the wild desert and starry skies of Joshua Tree, California, I’m your girl.  

Hey there, I’m Jenn!

Arch Rock is one of my favorite places to take couples in Joshua Tree National Park because of its unique arch features. It's a short walk from the campground and parking lot. This area has gotten popular over the years, so I wouldn't recommend it for the ceremony.

Keys View offers a really nice view for sunset with its sprawling view of desert mountain ranges. This area is also popular, so you will not have the place to yourselves, but there's easy access from the parking lot, and there's enough room for everybody for creative portraits.

Cap Rock is a designated ceremony location that's listed on the Joshua Tree National Park Website. I've had great experiences at this location for ceremonies!

Jumbo Rocks Campground is a fun place to take pictures during the day and during golden hour. It can also be a great area for starry night and milky way galaxy photos! One of my favorite things to do in Joshua Tree National Park is to lay on the giant boulders and watch the shooting stars!

Pioneer Town is an Old West town built as a 1800's movie set. It's a neighboring area to Joshua Tree. If you are planning your elopement to Joshua Tree, it's an area worth checking out and grabbing a bite to eat and enjoying some live music.

"Jennifer's keen eye and dedication to such a stylistic approach have us loving each and every single picture captured. It was more than a pleasure to have her with us every step of that day; it was like hanging with two gal pals! We could not have asked for any better artistic vision than hers. We would highly recommend Jennifer's talent to each and every couple out there that wants something fresh and unique when considering a photographer."

- Rachel

"Jenn captures every moment at every angle. This isn't your traditional photography! This is a new age of photography where the surroundings become as important as the people! The beauty of laughter, angles, and exposure bring out perfect pictures! You will have a hard time choosing which photos you want in your album!”

- Natalie

“We hired Jenn to take our engagement photos out in Joshua Tree. She straight-up SLAYED every photo, spent so much time with us, and was so fun to work with. I cannot recommend her enough. I say this as an art director who works with photographers on photoshoots all the time at my job: hire this woman! You won't regret it.”

- Kylie

“We were thrilled with how the photos turned out. Jenn is a very skilled editor and has a wonderful aesthetic. I knew it would be difficult for my photographer husband to find a wedding photographer who he trusted, but we are both so glad that Jenn shot our wedding. She will make your vision come true and is an absolute pleasure to work with.”
