Joshua Tree Sunset Engagement

Went out to shoot Sarah and Joseph’s engagement session in Joshua Tree during sunset. As we got closer to our meeting space the cloud got smoky and I realized there was a fire nearby. Scared that it would ruin the photos, I pulled up expecting the sky to look grey or black.. but instead the smoke made the sunset look better in Joshua Tree! Their engagement photos had a background with a beautiful orange glow.

Starting off their session with casual outfits, I could tell that this session was going to be super fun! Sarah and Joseph are so fun to work with and made shooting a breeze! I felt like i was taking photos of friends instead of clients.

Sarah brought a hat as an accessory which went well with the Joshua Tree desert landscape. Their blue and black outfits were also a great contrast to the orange and green background of this desert area.

Next up they changed to their formal attire in which they looked absolutely STUNNING!!! Sarah changed into a long, flowy yellow/golden dress and Joseph changed into a light blue shirt and dark blue dress pants. This color scheme went so well with each other! I loved how it made them pop out against the Joshua Tree landscape background for their engagement photos. The smoke plus their outfits made for THE best Joshua Tree sunset engagement photos.

As the sun began to set even lower the sky got more and more beautiful and Sarah’s dress meshed SO WELL with the colors of the sky. Scroll down to see how well these two dressed for their Joshua Tree sunset engagement photos.

"I came across Nicoles IG page & knew she was the prefect photographer to book with for my maternity shoot, I was so lucky to have been able to book with her last minute for I was getting closer to my due date. She was super sweet & made my boyfriend and I comfortable working with her, absolutely in love with how beautiful the pictures came out and you can tell my boyfriend and I were very comfortable being ourselves with her & she captured beautiful moments of us genuinely laughing & smiling which really left me in awe with her work! She’s an amazing photographer and the pictures she sent me literally teared me up for how beautiful they came out. 10/10 would say don’t doubt to work with her & book her! She’s worth it & she would leave you in awe with her amazing gifted talent in photography! I look forward to book with her again to do family pictures with our newborn baby!"

"My wife and I eloped in Palm Springs and Nicole was our photographer. Not only did she make us both feel super comfortable, but she really did make us feel like models/princesses and just all around special. From the moment she and David arrived, they added ease to our day and made the day flow effortlessly. She is extremely passionate about her work and it is reflected by the good vibes she exudes. If we had to do this all over again, or for any shoot at that matter, we 10/10 should choose her again. :)"

"If we had to do this all over again..we 10/10 should choose her again."

"Where do I even begin? Nicole has been blessed with amazing photography skills! If anything she's an amazing person to work with and I am so happy the way our photos came out and were captured for our special moment. These photos will be forever cherished and we can be forever grateful for Nicole and her amazing work. She is so sweet, kind, professional -her assistant helped tremendously as well! I am so happy how everything turned out and HIGHLY recommend her for future photography work. You guys are so easy to work with- very knowledgeable too! Thank you for your dedication, your time, your hard work & your blessed skills! P.S. most importantly you made us feel so comfortable and be ourselves! Thank you from the bottom of my heart!"
