taylor and eli | Joshua Tree, California

the photos here were all made possible almost by chance. on a trip to shoot a wedding in San Diego with my brother, the two of us had planned to go out to joshua tree to take in the sights and shoot some photos, but unfortunately our plans kept unraveling themselves. the day before we left for joshua tree was wedding day, and brother ran into a friend who happened to be the perfect size for the dress i wanted to shoot. we asked if she happened to be free and wanted to go camp with us the next night and she said yes! that night in joshua tree will be a hard one to forget. we shot all evening, made some friends, slept under the stars on top of a boulder, then got up early and went out to shoot again. an incredibly successful 24 hours.
