Desert Wedding Adventures Begins!
This Ocotillo Wells Desert Wedding was quite the adventure! When we got the inquiry to do this wedding out at Ocotillo Wells we were super excited. So after talking with the couple about their ideas and how it would play out in the middle of the desert, we were that much more excited. Being off grid out in the desert for a wedding photo shoot sounded like a good idea and it was a great excuse to get away from our bubble in San Diego.
The photographers on this assignment was Tobias Ogden (Lead Photographer) and Lauren Ogden (2nd Photographer) Did you notice the last names are the same? Yes they are a married and photograph lots of weddings together:) Lauren photographed the cover shot to this blog too.
So we had this Ocotillo Wells Desert Wedding on our mind for about a year and we were super excited to get out there! Ocotillo Wells is not too far from where we live in Carlsbad. It’s only about a two hour drive. We found a 1965 Aristocrat Low Liner vintage camper trailer a few months before this wedding. It was perfect timing and this camper was perfect for our little trip out to the desert for our adventure!
The Wedding Day
The couple we would be photographing was Heather and Dean. They had a huge compound of about 25 RV’s packed with all their friends and family. The desert makes for some awesome back drops. The desert colors made for some really cool photographs! In the 5 hours we were hired for, we were able to photograph everything to really tell a story of their big day!
This Desert Wedding was a great experience. We hope to photograph more weddings in the desert in the future. We learned that you can never bring enough water out there. Be sure to have some sort of power if you are camping since you are off the grid. Bring more of your favorite drink and be prepared to get a little dirty.
