SAMANTHA + QUENTIN – PALM SPRINGS ELOPEMENT AT LA QUINTA
I shot Samantha and Quentin’s perfect little winter elopement at La Quinta Resort this past February. They have been coming to the hotel for years and it’s one of their favorite places in the world, so where better to gather their immediate family for an intimate celebration? Escaping the rain of their native Seattle for the desert sun was the perfect move, especially since half their family was escaping major snowstorms back east! Everyone was pretty psyched about that. From wandering the insane grounds of La Quinta taking photos EVERYWHERE, to witnessing them tie the knot on the balcony of their room (which they strung with lights, a perfect touch) to sipping handmade cocktails with the family as the moon rose above the palms, this day was everything I love about elopements: relaxed, fun, and all about this couple and their sweet connection with each other.
