Glamis Sand Dunes After-Wedding Session in the Desert | Southern California Elopement Photographer | Newlywed Session // Kacey + Chris

One of the awesome perks my couple's get when they book me is a gigantic list of incredible locations for their Adventure Sessions and I'm always so excited when couples trust me enough to go to these amazing places even if they're never even heard of them! When they found out I hadn't shot at this awesome place, they were even more down to do it! The Glamis Sand Dunes in Southern California are honestly magical. It literally felt like we were in another world! I have definitely fallen in love with photographing couples at sand dunes. I've also shot at some small dunes just outside of Death Valley National Park, which was amazing, and now shooting in the beautiful sands of Morocco is definitely on my bucket list! Oh, I also rode ATVs at the dunes in Pismo Beach, which made me feel a little like a badass! Even the drive to get to the dunes is great - you pass the Salton Sea, which is another place I'd love to shoot, hint hint! I'm just generally in love with all the incredible desert scenes in that general area. I'd also love to shoot at the Anza-Borrego Desert State Park and of course Joshua Tree is a frequent favorite of mine!

Kacey and Chris are honestly one of the coolest couples ever! And it's been so wonderful having them as clients and now friends! They were incredible through the entire wedding planning process, they put so much trust in me (which I loved), and are just so down-to-earth and awesome people to hang out with! We drove together to the sand dunes and spent hours cruising together without a single quiet moment! How pretty was Kacey's MissGuided dress by the way?! Kacey and Chris are also photo/film artists themselves, check them out here and here! I could seriously go on and on about them, but I'll just let you check out their newlywed gallery now, haha!

P.S. You can also see their colorful desert wedding at The Living Desert Zoo & Gardens in Palm Desert here!
