Allison & Cody

JOSHUA TREE ANNIVERSARY

These two hold such a special place in my heart and I am so grateful to have been able to be a part of this weekend celebrating their relationship in Joshua Tree, California.

I originally met Cody & Allison at a workshop they were hosting years ago that they asked me to speak at and what I thought was going to just be a weekend hangout together has since become a deep life long friendship.

To celebrate their anniversary, we spent 2 days adventuring around Joshua Tree National Park and in the outskirts of Palm Springs. To be honest, I have found Joshua Tree to be a challenging place for me to shoot over the years. I love finding secluded spots so sessions can feel more intimate and though this isn’t always possible in a world where there seems to always be people around, we found this secret little oasis that led to some incredible views of the valley below.

Nature always plays a big role in my work and I love how the light, shadows, the colors of twilight and the lights from the city below became characters in each of the frames.
