INTIMATE DESERT PROPOSAL | JOSHUA TREE, CA | MARC + JOELLE

I was super excited when Marc contacted me to photograph his proposal to Joelle. He asked her to clear her schedule for the next few days and to meet him for lunch. At lunch he told her she had a few hours to pack and they were going to hit the road. They traveled from Scottsdale, AZ and headed towards Joshua Tree. Once Joelle realized where they were going she thought they were checking out hiking spots. Boy was she wrong! After Marc popped the question, they both were smitten! So, so excited for them and this new journey. Congrats, Marc + Joelle!!

Joshua Tree, California | Romantic Desert Couples Session | Hilda + Alan

I was fortunate to have Hilda contact me for a portrait session on her and Alan's escape to the desert from Chicago!  This travel loving couple was so much fun!  So much laughter and love surround these two and it is seriously infectious.  

I love when my couples trust me and my vision and let me capture what I see through my lens!  Hilda and Alan's personality is so easy-going and flirtatious and that most definitely showed through in their portraits!
