Let the Hawaii++California blog posts BEGIN! Somehow I ended up working in reverse through all of our sessions so this first to-die-for photoshoot on the blog is from the last day of our trip! Photographing in Joshua Tree, California has been a bucketlist dream of mine for a while. I’ve seen it all over the internet and sat drooling, dreaming of the day I’d walk the straw puffs & funny-looking trees with a hilarious, stylish couple. Well, DREAM COME TRUE. I hardly know where to begin talking about Malory & Austin because they are truly wonderful souls. Their love for Jesus, each other, and those around them is a contagious joy and created such an easy inspiration for these photos. We wandered through fields of spikey grenades, climbed boulder piles, and watched the early sunrays climb over the horizon on a mudcloth blanket. These are the moments I want to hold onto forever.
