Calyn & Taylor

Joshua Tree, CA.
This session is one of my favorite's ever...
The outfits, the couple, the location, the sunset, everything was just working together so well and it made for the perfect evening! This shoot was part of a styled shoot that I put together in Joshua Tree and when I reached out to Calyn asking her if she and her honey would be interested in modeling for it she was so freaking sweet and adorable it made me even more excited! Shooting alongside other photographers and creatives is one of my favorite things because we get to feed off one another's ideas and built on poses/prompts. It always makes for a great time and an incredible shoot, and this is proof of that! However, these two and their natural chemistry made our job way too easy! It's one of my favorite parts of my job to capture that natural connection between two people, so often my couples tell me "we're awkward in front of the camera" and time and time again they show up and do this...

I had shot in Joshua Tree before but this time I spent the whole weekend there so I got to experience the magic of the desert. I totally recommend taking a trip to Joshua Tree (and of course having me take your photos ;)) there's no place like it! There are lots of super cool boutiques to check out also, some of my favorites are Roaming Travelers, Hi Desert Daydream, and Lucky Lace (which is where this dress is from & it's in my client closet!)
