Jasmine + Will / Joshua Tree Anniversary Session

Jasmine + Will / Joshua Tree Anniversary Session

Sometimes, waking up at 4:00am is SO WORTH IT. For their anniversary photo session, Jasmine and Will met us out in Joshua Tree, CA (aka: a photographer playground) for some amazing pictures. The sunrise was incredible, BUT the sun rises fast in the desert. Shade is hard to come by, and shade is a photographer's best friend. We drove aimlessly for a few minutes (the best way to find new photo spots), and found a cave of boulders. After exploring the rocky area, we decided to experiment in the sun. Barker Dam trail was the only spot I knew of where we could find a giant reflector for the sun... the reservoir. So we hiked in for some shots that played with high contrast.

This was my first downtown Kalamazoo elopement style session. I've done tons of engagements around the Bronson Park area, but golly, there's something about a wedding dress and all that classic architecture that made me forget my super bold photographer thing and lean into something a little more soft and fresh.
