Palm Springs Wedding Photos in the Desert

On our way to the ceremony and reception site, we stopped by the wind farms for a few quick “desert windmill” pictures (a desert wind farm).  The temperature that day was close to 100 degrees so we had to make it quick.  I love this picture…

Don’t you think they look like Barbie and Ken??  What a beautiful couple!!!

Night Wedding Photos at Spencer’s Restaurant

During the reception we pulled the bride and groom off to the side for 10 minutes to do some quick wedding photos at night in low-light. We love lighting up stuff in the dark!

This wedding article shows us doing destination wedding photography out in Palm Springs, commonly known as a resort destination. We started with the wedding preparation at the Riviera Palm Springs resort, where we had our first look and more wedding photos of our happy couple. From there we went out to a remote spot for desert wedding photos with the bride and groom and the bridal party. After that we went to Spencer’s Restaurant in Palm Springs for the ceremony and reception dinner.

For more examples of wedding photography, make sure to check out the rest of our blog. We do destination weddings, but luckily Palm Springs is close enough to Los Angeles that it’s just a long drive. If you’d like to see some of our more recent work, check out our Instagram. Here’s a wedding we did at the La Quinta Resort in Palm Springs:
