SAM + JUSTIN | ANZA BORREGO
There aren’t quite words to express how much I adore Sam + Justin. I met Sam in college, but we didn’t really run in the same friend circles until after graduation. Through mutual friends, we’ve been able to hang out much more frequently, and when she asked if I would shoot her engagement photos, and then wedding, I was elated. Sam wanted desert fabulous, aka desert in a gown. She asked if it was okay if she brought a smoke bomb and I couldn’t really contain my excitement for the images that I would get from that prop! We trucked out to Anza Borrego State Park, looking specifically for The Slots. We didn’t exactly find them, but the best thing about Anza Borrego is that no matter where you land; it’s gorgeous. We took photos as the sun dipped behind the mountains, and the more photos we took, the more I got to know them as a couple. They are fun, and loving, goofy and real. The (almost) 5 hours spent together felt like 3 friends hanging out. I cannot wait for their 2019 Cabo wedding!
