Film Joshua Tree Engagement Session in California

The Story:

“I was so excited when Chiara and Thomas told me they wanted to head out to the desert to shoot their engagement photos. We started out shooting at Roy’s Motel Cafe, an iconic stop on Route 66, which holds a special place for Chiara and Thomas because it was the route they took across the country on their first road trip together. When I asked about the road trip, if it was hard or if they fought, Thomas said to me, so seriously, “No, we’re soulmates.” After spending the day with these two I truly believe him! They are clearly crazy about each other, which made it easy to photograph their genuine emotions and bring their love to life on camera. Chiara and Thomas hired me specifically because they wanted a photographer who shot film, so we got creative with double exposures and experimenting with different film stocks.”
