Palm Springs Engagement session // Dominique & Josh

about a month ago I was sitting on my couch, looking at my calendar. I saw a month that was open with possibilities. I had a choice. I could take the month off & rest up for the season ahead of me or take a risk & go and do something I had never done before.

didn’t take me long to make my decision. I booked a flight to Palm Springs & made a plan. I would finally shoot in two of the “must shoot” locations on my list. first thing I did was book a room at Ace Hotel Palm Springs, at the time I figured I would stay and scope out the city but as plans unfolded I actually needed to be in Joshua Tree for the plans I had for the rest of the weekend. so, here I was with a room in a city I wasn’t going to be able to stay. I got creative. #takemetoacegiveaway was announced. I would give one lucky winner a portrait session with me and as part of the prize they would get a room at the Ace. Entries came in…I really didn’t have a plan on what type of session I would shoot, I just wanted to play in this magical mid century colorful playground. well….in came Josh & Dominique. an entry that spoke to me. a creative story of their love (they created an Instagram account JUST for this giveaway!) and it was obvious to me that I needed to meet them!

they drove up and met me for drinks at Kings Highway. they were so grateful for this opportunity and I felt the same.

I was determined to not get caught up in the Instagram locations, but rather find those little gems & shoot as if I had lived there forever. yes, we had to go to the windmills because up unit this point I thought the ones in Vantage, WA were noteworthy…..FYI, they are not.

forever in awe of life & the way that paths cross. its really special & I will never take it for granted.

Dom & Josh, thank you for showing me your love & being so vulnerable with me. next round of drinks on me.
