I’ve been friends with Amanda since high school, and we are truly kindred souls. We love the outdoors, eating Del Taco late at late, long boarding, watching our husbands surf, and spending as much time in the sun as possible. When I booked a wedding in SoCal in May, I knew I wanted to line up an elopement styled shoot somewhere in the desert. I also knew that I wanted Amanda and Asher to be my model couple–one, because they’re gorg and two, because they’re so much fun to hang with. I mean, the fact that we can quote Spongebob to each other in every single sentence and talk surf and then be ok with quiet?! That’s a no brainer. So we made the trek from Orange County to Joshua Tree on a Sunday afternoon and made some magic. A + A totally killed it and we froze our butts off and then booked it to a Del Taco in the middle of nowhere to down some warm burritos and it was just the best day. It’s a true gift that I get to hang out with friends and photograph them in beautiful places.
