Brianna & Derik Temecula Desert Engagement

filed under


Brianna and Derik wanted a desert vibe for their engagement session, so we planned on making the trip out to Joshua Tree while they were in town for Christmas. Well, the weather had different plans, and Joshua Tree was closed due to snow and rain, so we went to plan B and found a fantastic location just outside of Temecula with a similar look. This was the first time I had been out to this location, and it did not disappoint! We didn’t end up having rain, but mixed clouds and bursts of sunlight made this session so diverse.

Let’s Talk about this lovely couple for a moment, shall we? Brianna and I have chatted quite a bit over the phone since they hired me for their wedding at Circle Oak Ranch in Fallbrook next October, and I knew from the start it was going to be a fun shoot. These two are in love and are so playful. This made for such an easy breezy session that was more like goofing around with old friends than work. I am so excited for their wedding day next Fall.
