Joshua Tree Wedding: Curtis & Maria's Sacred Sands Wedding //


We LOVE Joshua Tree and Palm Springs, so it was so nice to be down there for a wedding a few weeks ago. It was even more special because Adam has known Curtis for a long time. Adam played in a hard core band with his brother Derek, and we went to Cal Poly with Curtis so we saw him a few times during those years. Shooting weddings for people we know is the best! :) Be sure to check out Adam's video above which starts with their pre shoot, and I'll be posting my photos from that soon!

Nick and Jess have become two of our closest friends over the last year. Just last month we all vacationed in Kauai and I knew it was the perfect spot for their engagement session. And now I'm counting down to their October wedding in my other favorite location, San Luis Obispo!
