This sunrise session in Joshua Tree, California was a fun last minute session. We found the dress at Ross (crazy find!) and made our way into Joshua Tree National Park in the early hours before the sun made it’s appearance over the California desert. Ashley is a talented photographer herself, so of course we sneaked in a few photos of her with her camera!
Last week, Kate and her Husband, Cory joined me in Dillon, Colorado for a drink and snow portraits. While I’m “new” to Colorado, I feel like I’ve been one with the snow for years. Weird, right? Well for the last two years I’ve spent most of the Spring/Summer/Fall months traveling around the US, so most of my experience with Colorado is with a foot of snow on the ground. You tend to learn quickly how to layer and to always keep gloves and a hat in your jacket. California family, it’s not that bad, really. I would take snow over 110 degree summers ANY day! Plus, sweater weather. I never actually knew what sweaters were for living in Southern California…and now I own enough for a small village. 😉
Kate + Cory eloped 5.5 years ago, and 4 years ago on New Years Eve they partied with their closest friends and family. But a blizzard got in the way of them having any outside photos of the two of them, so this winter they decided to change that! We explored Lake Dillon for a short time and then drove up the Loveland Pass to finish the session with a beautiful snow storm going on around us. They were amazing in the freezing temperatures and hid their hand-warmers well!
