What’s show-stopping beautiful and incredibly fun at the same time? An engagement shoot at Joshua Tree National Park! So if you’re thinking about this iconic location as the backdrop for your engagement shoot, take a look at these gorgeous photos for inspiration of different ways to style the session. Be inspired by the edgy jumpsuits, couture gowns and stunning scenery… take a look!
In this ragged and rough environment, with the cacti and huge rock formations- it can be absolutely stunning to juxtapose all of this with an elegant tulle gown, just like the one photographed. Pale colours, such as whites, creams and soft blushes work great, and don’t forget its all about those layers of delicate fabric. Your other half can be dressed in a simple suit to compliment your aesthetic.
If you’re wanting to add a modern twist to your engagement shoot, why not mix it up and try a jumpsuit like the one pictured below? The only accessories you’ll need is a beautiful bouquet and perhaps some bold earrings or statement shoes! You can ask your partner to keep it simple and sexy with a black ensemble.
Wanting to create a bohemian vibe at your shoot? A hat is a perfect (and practical!) accessory to create this boho look, we’re also loving this bride’s long braids.
Even if Joshua Tree isn’t the right choice for you… or is a little too far away, a similar look can be created at pretty much any desert location! Just grab your photographer and head out into the wilderness for a muted background to your gorgeous bridal get-up. Pure perfection!
