Alyssa & Patrick | Joshua Tree Engagement Session

“Wherever I’m going, I’m going with you”

This session is honestly one of my absolutely favorites, everything worked out perfectly and it felt like fate that we would meet up in Joshua Tree. Alyssa & Patrick are from Ohio, the same state I’m from! They’re getting married here, but live in LA where Patrick has started a thriving escape room business (click here to check that out!). It just so happened, a few weeks after Alyssa inquired to us we would be in California anyway! The timing was too perfect, I suggested Joshua Tree and we came up with a plan to meet there.

The day before their session, it SNOWED in Joshua Tree. That’s right, snowed! Snowfall in the dry hot California desert is an extremely rare occurrence. Their session was literally perfect, we still had a little snow on the ground, but perfect temperature, the sun was out, and there was a beautiful sunset. We ended the night with burgers in town at the Saloon (if you’ve been to Joshua Tree you know the one). Once we said our goodbyes and got in our cars, Alyssa and Patrick’s car wouldn’t start up! We spent an hour trying to jump their car, and finally realized we had the cables placed wrong the entire time. They kept apologizing but I loved every second of it, real authentic moments like that with our clients is what I live for. I’m so happy we have those memories with them, I can’t wait for their rad wedding in January!
