Joshua Tree Engagement Session, Spring 2016
This Joshua Tree Engagement session was one 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
