I have wanted to photograph in Joshua Tree for as long as I can remember. Something about the open landscape, large stacks of boulders, and the desert plants calls my name. So when Kira and Chris were up for the nearly 3 hour drive into the middle of nowhere, I was thrilled to finally have my opportunity!
When the day for their shoot came, we drove through several storms of rain, and incredibly gloomy skies to reach our VERY windy destination. The weather was not in our favor, but Kira and Chris were all smiles as we escaped gusts of wind behind rock formations, and ran to the car as the rain finally caught up with us. Throughout all the obstacles we were able to still have a great time, and even chased down the last bit of sunlight for an epic end to the shoot!
I’m absolutely in love with these photos, and cannot wait see Kira and Chris become Mr. and Mrs. in a few short months – yay! Special thanks to Serene Bridal Beauty for the lovely hair and makeup.
