Desert Bridals: Scott & Alex
Desert Bridals + Joshua Tree
The photos are here!!! A big thank you to Monika Ottehenning for shooting desert bridals of Scott and I in the freezing cold (but beautiful) Joshua Tree. I’d never really mentally planned out what I wanted my bridals to look like (let alone wedding), but knew that I wanted to be surrounded by nature, and not the beach (haha — I’m not really a beach girl, though I wish I were). I also leaped at the chance to take photos with Scott because 1. I love this man and turns out, I would actually love photos for this once-in-a-lifetime moment in our lives 2. I would wear my wedding dress every day if I could 3. Reliving a sliver of our wedding day, even for a few hours, is so fun.
We all woke up at 4:30 in the morning, leaving at 5:00 AM for the desert, arriving at 9:00 AM, or sometime around there. The light was beautiful, there was no one in sight, and everything sort of fell into place. Well, except for the fact that it was FREEZING (you’d never guess by looking at the pictures. . . hopefully. Ha!).
Hope you enjoy!
