I got to go on a trip to Joshua Tree with Vammped to do a photoshoot with the clothing line "Twenty-Fifteen" (amazing items by the way. loved every outfit I shot in), and it was one of the coolest spots I have visited in California.
We road tripped up ( I obviously provided all the snacks) and rented a house at the top of a hill just outside the little town of Joshua Tree. The house itself was actually amazing. Unfortunately the trip was was not even two days long so we didn't get to enjoy the amenities the house had to offer, but I still broke out the record player and listened to some classics by the fire, which was the perfect night. The next day was the day of our shoot, and it was so much fun. Everyone from Vampped was awesome to work with as well as the brand themselves.
If you get the chance to make it to Joshua tree, I highly recommend it. It is INSANELY photogenic... There is something about being in the middle of a desert that is so magical.
