Desert Chic meets Art Deco with a touch of whimsy thrown in for good measure and Joshua Tree National Park set the stage for a completely stunning Joshua Tree engagement for this stylish pair. It’s pretty impossible to pinpoint a favorite element of their love session, we seriously love it all and we just can’t get enough of these two, but who could blame us? Our day was a magical mix of natural beauty and the true love between these two gems with one beautiful moment after another. Joshua Tree National Park occupies a unique spot in the American natural and cultural landscape. It is located along the San Andreas Fault, the tectonic boundary between the Pacific and North American plates, and near the Salton Sea, man-made in the early 1900s to divert Colorado River water to California farmers. The park is also just a few miles from Coachella, where thousands of new Bohemians convene each year to celebrate spring, music, and good living, and not far from Palm Springs and Desert Hot Springs, oases of modern design and architecture south of L.A., a perfect location for Joshua Tree engagement and Orange County wedding photographer. A trip to Joshua Tree National Park for Orange County wedding photographer could certainly include visits to some or all of these iconic places, but if you have just a few days, exploration of the park itself provides a more-than-fulfilling experience. Crafted over millions of years by torrential rain, battering wind, and extreme temperatures, Joshua Tree National Park stretches over nearly 800,000 acres of rugged terrain. These landscapes, which can seem deceptively barren, are home to several ecosystems. Despite the harsh conditions, Joshua Tree teems with plant and animal life that has adapted and thrived in the area’s fierce climate.The higher and cooler Mojave Desert is the special habitat of Yucca brevifolia, the Joshua tree for which the park is named.

It occurs in patterns from dense forests to distantly spaced specimens. In addition to Joshua tree forests, the western part of the park includes some of the most interesting geologic displays found in California’s deserts making it such unique venue for Joshua Tree engagement to be captured by Orange County wedding photographer. The dominant geologic features of this landscape are hills of bare rock, usually broken up into loose boulders. These hills are popular amongst rock climbing and scrambling enthusiasts like Orange County wedding photographer and couples taking Joshua Tree engagement session. The flatland between these hills is sparsely forested with Joshua trees. There are several hiking trails within the park, many of which can be accessed from a campground. Shorter trails, such as the one mile hike through Hidden Valley, offer a chance to view the beauty of the park without straying too far into the desert.
