Sometimes you will never know the value of something,until it becomes a memory.

This is a story about a couple in love. They are happily married and decided to celebrate their anniversary with a photoshoot in one of the most magical places I have ever been on the entire planet, Joshua Tree National Park. Where the day’s hot sun leaves space for chilly nights under a sky full of stars. It is home to the yucca plant and massive stone formations that create the perfect backdrop to remember forever <3

Gina and Michael are such a rock solid couple, after getting married in Portland they moved to Los Angeles to follow their biggest dreams of becoming actors and models. Maybe you will see me looking for them on the red carpet in a few years… 🙂 Their smiles, joy for life, love and well, everything about them attracts people like a magnet!!   To showcase Gina’s wild and free spirit, she wore two different Island Tribe kaftans. Florals from Chirstine Cater really popped against desert sunset.Pink ice protea, blooming artichokes, and tied together with luscious, hand torn silk ribbons.

Not your typical sunset photos. Gina wore a golden silk turban. In celebration of the days end, the lovers stood beneath Mother Natures arch while waiting the full moon rise.
