Joshua Tree is a wonderful escape. Southern California Wedding photographer STEPH WAHLIG wanted to capture the beauty of the desert and the stunning iconic trees along with the backdrop of VILLA KURO; a gorgeous home tucked into the mountains of Joshua Tree. She tells us, "I wanted to show a simplistic beauty of the venue and feel a sense of freedom in these images. Solange is a wonderful human and I wanted to capture her beauty. Having her dance thru the hallways are some of my favourite images. Portraiture is such a beautiful art form and wanted to capture that freedom I have been wanting to feel in my own life."

A huge thank you to Southern California Wedding photographer STEPH WAHLIG for sharing this beautiful shoot with us. Steph is a valued member of our Vendor Collective specialising in destination and local Arizona weddings. With a huge love for film, Steph loves wedding photography that doesn't feel forced but more in the moment. "I love colour, sunny images and photograph mostly in Arizona and California. My job is always to give you the best possible photography but to provide you with moments that show who you are and to capture who you are. Because of this I tend to only shoot a few weddings a year because I want to be able to truly get to know my clients." Check out more of her portfolio here.
