Nakita and Stephan’s desert wedding in Joshua tree was the absolute finest expression of a minimalist wedding. Every detail was carefully envisioned by the couple who are also amazing wedding photographers from New Zealand. Their close family and friends flew to join them to celebrate their dream wedding. The surreal scenery, and the afternoon hazy pink light, made this one of the most beautiful desert weddings we ever shot. This was a testament that weddings don’t need to be overly styled. Small but on-point details that express the couple’s personality are the best. It was a gathering we feel honored they let us into their midst without hesitation. The affection and grace they showed everyone came from the deepest of hearts.
