Joshua Tree Engagement Sessions, Spring 2016

Joshua Tree Engagement sessions are some of the most inspiring shoots I’ve had in a while.  I’ve been attracted to imagery lately that embraces the darkness instead of trying to lighten it, making the shadows and light to play a different, though still prominent, role in the creation of the feeling of an image.  This creates a more intense sense of intimacy, and shared solitude between the couple that I’m photographing.  Austin and Lizzie were the perfect couple for this approach as their love was intensely intimate and authentic – from laughing out loud to simply holding each other silently as the sun slipped below the horizon at sunset.

Couple: Lizzie + Austin

Location: Joshua Tree National Park

Leadbetter Beach Engagement at Sunset in Santa Barbara

 

Van and Will live on the East coast and will be getting married in Hawaii later this year, but they wanted to take advantage of work trip to capture Santa Barbara’s beauty in a Leadbetter Beach Engagement session.  This is the first time I took a couple to the bluffs at Leadbetter Beach for a session, though now I look forward to the opportunity to do so again.  Just after sunset you get to all of the California Coastal hues of green, blue, grey…
