Sometimes you need to run away from home solo and spend 10 days exploring California with your best friend on the planet. This is exactly what I did last May when I took my semi-annual trip to visit Jayd & Noam in sunshiny San Diego. We caught up, cooked, worked from home, worked from the library, shopped for plants, made homemade deodorant, took some super great hikes, hit all of my favorite places, drank 17 mango smoothies, and laughed a ton. My favorite part of it all was our last minute trip to see the super bloom (photos to come later). After we spent a few hours frolicking through this storybook scenery, I looked at our map to see what might be next on this great adventure. We were an hour out from our first visit to Joshua Tree, and it immediately became a race for time – It was just a few hours until sunset. We jumped in the car and drove to see this magical place. We made it an hour before sundown, and captured as much as we could. Leaving, we were bummed we didn’t have much time to explore so we made plans to come back someday to experience all that Joshua Tree had to offer. Luckily, this was the shoot that brought me back just two months later. I will be sharing Shelby & Josh’s Joshua Tree elopement on the blog in a few weeks.
If you have not been to Joshua Tree, you NEED to add it to your list of must see places.
Thanks for looking!
