SUNRISE AND SUNSET ENGAGMENT SESSION IN THE DESERT
// Joshua Tree Nationalpark
Day 1 // Sunset
Your engagement should be a wonderful time! Think of it this way: Once you’re married, your relationship will never go through this season again. So celebrate it! Enjoy it! Embrace it!
This is exactly what Mynor and Carla did.
When they suggested having their engagement session at Joshua Tree Park, I smiled as hard as I could. It was my longtime dream to do a photoshoot in the desert. We immediately started planning our trip since we all live in the Bay Area.
On the first day of our adventure, we drove 10 Hours down to Palm Springs to spend time, relax, and explore the city. It was in late May on Memorial Day weekend. On the third day, we made our way to Joshua Tree. Since the weather was really hot, we decided to do the photoshoot at sunset. It turned out to be the best idea because the sunset light in the desert was magical.
We all had the best time during the photoshoot. Carla and Mynor goofed around and just enjoyed each other so much that they sometimes forgot I was there taking pictures of them. They delivered so many candid pictures of their amazing love story.
We had so much fun that we decided to do another photoshoot the next morning at sunrise with different outfits. It gave us more variety in the photos, so they weren’t all with the same background and outfits.
The whole trip was such an unforgettable experience. I had the best locations, the best weather, the best lighting, and (most importantly) the best couple to capture their love and spend time with. This was definitely my favorite photoshoot of all time.

Day 2 // Sunrise
I met Mynor in the cafeteria of our college. As an international student from Germany, I was happy to meet somebody from the bay area. We kept running into each other all over campus. After two months of knowing each other, Mynor wanted to show me around his hometown. Little did we know, it turned out to be a date. Soon after the first date, he came to visit me in Germany and we traveled to Paris. Five years later, he proposed on a trip to Copenhagen and here we are about to get married.
