I’m so excited about these photos of my sister and my soon-to-be brother-in-law! It’s been a long-time coming, but these two are finally getting married. As an adventurous pair who like hiking, traveling, and spending time outdoors, they naturally needed a rugged Joshua Tree engagement session.
We ventured out to Joshua Tree for a weekend getaway, but an unexpected rainstorm met us on the day of our shoot. Fortunately, the next day was perfect (overcast is my favorite)! We spent the late afternoon running through the desert, climbing on piles of otherworldly rocks, and getting stuck with cacti (watch out – those cholla cactus jump), all while trying to outsmart the lingering storm clouds. In the end, thankfully the skies held back its rain and instead gave us a gorgeous sunset.
