Editorial Inspired Engagement Photos in a Desert? Magical.

Palm Springs, CA where a sun-soaked paradise is a landscape of pure beauty. The perfect location for romanticism photography to take place. The desert stretches as far as the eye can see, perfectly framed by the mountains, stunning windmills, and bathed in the warm, amber glow of the setting sun. Palm Springs is where every moment is a masterpiece waiting to be captured.

Desert Portraits in Palm Springs with Evolve Workshops

Most days we work in a bubble, editing alone on computers, and it can be so rejuvenating to be in the company of other like minded creatives. I was so lucky to photograph this styled shoot alongside the talented and all-around nice guy Rodney Brown last winter outside of Palm Springs as a part of the Evolve Workshops.

When Romanticism Photography Meets an Editorial Vibe

The styling work from Benjamin Holtrop made everything extra special, having just the right look for the boho, desert location. While these two are not a couple, it was fun to experiment with these desert portraits in a more editorial vibe that models can bring.

In Palm Springs, the desert isn’t just a backdrop; Its rustic beauty, its untamed wilderness, becomes a metaphor for the raw, untamed passion of your love for each other.

But it’s not just about the scenery; it’s about the experience. There is an undeniable sense of magic in the air when the sun dips below the horizon, casting the desert in hues of fiery orange and dusky pink.

So why should you choose Palm Springs for your engagement photos? Because here, you’ll find more than just an engagement shoot that will leave you looking back on your photos for years to come.
