a dreamy desert shoot

Earlier this year,

Nick & I went to explore Joshua Tree National Park. Even though its only a few hours away, it was my first time going to the park-- and I really loved it! Something about Joshua Tree is so peaceful and gives you a sense of contentment.

There is a certain stillness and silence about it. Being in Joshua Tree for a short few days sparked an idea in me to go back and shoot there-

And here is the result of that! I had the neat opportunity to participate in a stylized bridal shoot. This shoot was one of my favorites, ever! Maybe because it was in Joshua Tree or maybe because I had the chance to collaborate with such lovely ladies who have their own dreams and companies.

Here is a quick introduction & thank you to everyone else involved in this shoot . . .
