It’s so awesome when couples come to me asking for adventure- I willingly oblige. There’s nothing I love more than discovering new places with a camera in hand. Rachel and Luke wanted a unique backdrop for their engagement photos, so I suggested Joshua Tree; a place I had always wanted to visit but never got around to going.
We went on our mini road trip out to the desert at the end of June. We didn’t make it very far into the park before pulling over to stretch our legs and start shooting. From the strange plants that grow here, to the enormous boulders as big as houses, every direction you look in is uniquely beautiful.
The hazy sky was showing off for us all day- I could tell immediately the sunset would be epic. At a rest area, we hiked up a mound of boulders and had an incredible view of our surroundings (and an audience of two tourists taking pictures of me taking pictures…). We romped around in the desert sand and took photos until we completely ran out of light.
On the way home, we stopped for candy and In-N-Out. My kind of people.
