Alex & Jen's Joshua Tree Engagement Session

We try hard not to play favorites, but this engagement session tops the list. First of all, engagement shoots in general, are so fun for us! Its just us and our couple, low key, having fun, usually dancing and laughing our a$$’s off. What could be better? 

Meeting with Alex and Jen in Joshua Tree was like going on a adventure with old best friends. They are so natural and playful together, not to mention, we all share the same taste in music and beer! 

These two are going on a decade of love, have traveled the world together, and recently made a big move from Michigan to San Diego where Jen is finishing up her medical residency. We immediately bonded over travel stories, music festivals, and the life of being a California transplant. 

Alex and Jen knew they wanted a fun and adventurous backdrop to shoot their engagement photos. After lots of discussion, we all decided on Joshua Tree with its sprawling rock formations and Dr. Seuss-like tree’s. Music is a huge part of their love story, so we about died when they brought their rad disco ball to cap off a magical evening in the desert. 

We CANNOT wait for their Detroit wedding next August!
