Don’t you just love it when grand plans fall together? As some of you might remember, we recently traveled out West to shoot a wedding at Joshua Tree. While we were out that way we were able to connect with another couple that will be tying the knot later this Spring at The Bauer . Katie has been working as a Park Ranger at The Petrified Forest (giggity) so it was so nice that we could meet up and do their engagement session while we were out here.
We met Katie and Matt near Skull Rock and explored some trails, climbed some rocks and laughed, a lot. Later we invited them over to our campsite at Belle Campground to finish our session. (see below for a camping tip!)
You may not be able to tell it from the photos, but it was COLD and extremely windy. I had on about 5 layers, and these two rocked the session like a PRO! Whiskey, has a way of warming you from the inside, doesn’t it? 🙂 It was so great to spend more time with Katie, and finally get to meet Matt. We are so looking forward to their wedding! xomo
Pro-Tip: As of March 2018 you must reserve a site for Jumbo Rocks ON-LINE. So don’t make the same mistake we did. In all honesty though, Belle wasn’t that bad. It was smaller, quieter and still tons of boulders to climb on. Another Pro Tip, buy an Annual Pass to the park — it’ll get you in for free! (Don’t do what I did earlier this year, go on vacation and leave the pass at home) **Support*Our*Parks**
