Get married outside! California Poppy Fields and Wildflower adventure session

2017 was my first year to see the California poppy fields and I am so excited for them to start sprouting up again. This year I am planning some poppy field and wildflower session for the spring.  I am planning for an elopement, family and kid sessions out in Lancaster and one secret location in LA. Depending on demand, I will do one weekday and one-weekend session. Here are some tips and tricks to help you be better prepared to make the journey from LA to Lancaster to see the infamous Poppy Fields.

The wildflower bloom generally occurs from mid-March through April, but varies widely each year. The peak viewing period is usually late March or early April.


Try to go on a weekday- the crowds on the weekdays are so much fewer than compared to the weekends

Get the coveted sunset time-Golden hour is the best time to shoot. Not only does it make you look younger and make your skin glow but the skies look amazing.

Bring practical shoes- the park is very hilly. Don’t try to wear stilettosBring money for parking ($10)- Last year you needed cash

Bring a snack and water-There is no food to buy in or near the park.

                         Check the bloom report-

Be on time– Most likely there is another session after you. Give yourself plenty of extra time. You don’t want to show up late and scrambling it messes up your vibe as well as your hair and makeup.


This was a random spot we stopped at on the way to the Poppy Fields. It was just so cool.
