Palm Springs Engagement Photos
When Craig reached out to me late last year he explained that he and his partner Ryan were coming down from Seattle to elope in Palm Springs in February. Craig mentioned they had been going to a lot of friends weddings over the past few years and decided they just didn’t want to go through all the stress of a planning a regular wedding. I can totally understand this perspective given all the booze I had to drink to get through my own wedding planning. You know you are in a bad place when you find yourself in arguments with your fiancee over tableware so avoiding those land mines was a sound decision. These two distinguished gentlemen were looking for a couple hours of photo coverage with two locations that would essentially be an engagement session in Palm Springs, and it would just so happen to be that they were also getting married that week. Pretty freaking rad if you ask me!
So for the “Palm Springs engagement photos” we snapped some images at the Airbnb they were staying at before heading out to the desert foothills. I knew that given our limited time we would have to have a little giddy up in our step, and because of that we managed to also get some photos around Palm Springs. Even making a quick pit spot for some more engagements photos at Ace Hotel. Below are some of the photographs from Ryan and Craig’s Palm Springs engagement session!
Same Sex Engagement Photos Palm Springs
One of the coolest things about choosing to have engagement photos in Palm Springs is that the city provides such a diverse and unique setting. This is probably the reason why same sex couples from all over the world will jump on a plane, head to the desert, and get their pool+cocktail vibe going in Palm Springs. The warm weather, local art, kick ass restaurants and amazing views really make Palm Springs one of the best places for rest and relaxation. Or the place to absolutely turn up if you are into that as well!
