Out of a series of events, somehow I ended up in Joshua Tree shooting this beautiful couple's engagement session. There's something special about the desert terrain - it's muted tones, how it comes to life after sunset. I think I fell in love the moment I stepped out of the car. But more so, I think I fell in love with these two. Jamie and Sam are the type of people who have an endless amount of love for each other and hearts that want to explore the world, hand in hand.
Mickie and Mike are from Indiana but currently living in LA. I've always wanted to get together with them so I was ecstatic that they were down to meet us at El Matador for a mini photoshoot. They're both so sweet and I had such a blast exploring the area with them and learning more about how they met and what they've been up to in LA. Thank you both for being my models for the evening!
Oh how I've loved watching these two evolve and become one over the last few years. When Laura first called me to tell me she was *finally* engaged I was in tears. I know this is something they've been waiting for for awhile, but the right time hadn't presented itself just yet. Now, they're planning their intimate wedding in Yosemite and I can't wait to be there to witness it. Love you both ❤️
These winter months are growing on me. Normally, I'm a sunshine or no shoot type of gal. That golden hour light gives me life. But recently I've come to love the hazy, pale blue colors that come with our midwest winters. It's even began to inspire me (crazy, right?!). So during a quiet work day, I decided to sit down and get a few shoot ideas churning. This one was put together pretty quickly, I'd had this makeup look pinned for awhile and I knew Anne, the model, would be able to create something awesome for it. The outfit was thrown together from a few of our closets and voila - a shoot was born. Take a look.
