We met these two in the desert and photographed them until sunset – and what a California sunset it was! You really can’t beat the light on the west coast. Ottawa is going through yet another cold spell and it is so nice to look back on these photos and get a bit of warmth. While exploring Joshua Tree, Joel and I couldn’t get over how beautiful and quiet it was. Rock climbers were coming back to their camp-grounds and starting the fires for the night, the stars were coming out, it was absolutely romantic in an altogether different way. We can’t wait to come back. Anyway – in between all the natural beauty of the park, we photographed these two lovers – the scenes could not be more glorious! Congratulations, Nicole + Ivan – thank you for having us photograph your engagement!
