Glamis Sand Dunes Elopement

We have been wanting to do a Glamis Sand Dunes Elopement for the LONGEST time. Ever since we moved to Southern Cali, this place has been on the radar. We found the perfect couple who was down for the adventure and so we packed up the car and got ready to head out.

The drive was about 3 hours total. For the first 2 hours and 50 minutes you’re driving through corn fields and farmland. But then you get to the sand dunes. & it’s unlike anything else. This place makes you feel like you’re in another country, and once we all got out of the car we just stood there and admired it for a solid 10 minutes or so.

But, the real kicker of this entire adventure is HOW WINDY IT WAS. We’re talking like, face-full of sand and not being able to open your eyes because you had the possibility of going blind. Not even kidding. Yet, somehow these two made it look effortless and like they weren’t secretly hating us for putting them into this situation. (totally kidding). So, without further ado, these are the highlights from our crazy adventure into the dunes!

Huge thanks to all of the vendors who styled this shoot and helped make it EPIC!

If you are a photographer and you’re diggin’ this editing style, try our Lightroom Presets! These presets work best for photographers who shoot their subjects backlit (with the sun behind the subject). Make sure to underexpose your photos, so you don’t lose your highlights when applying this preset!
