Why should I elope in Palm Springs?

Keep reading to decide if a Palm Springs elopement is right for you! Here are a couple of reasons why I personally believe you SHOULD elope in Palm Springs.


In the backdrop of these pictures you can see those stunning mountains! I find that these ranges allow for stunning variations of light and insane sun rises and sun sets. I love how they help to frame the windmills pictured here.


Another reason to elope in Palm Springs is the desert! If the open space and the windmills aren’t calling your name, we are a short drive away from Joshua Tree National Park which offers its own set of stunning backdrops for your elopement session.


Would you believe if I told you these images were taken in early February? No joke! like we mentioned above, when you come during the best months, you can expect moderate temperatures and clear skies.
