Glamis Engagement Photos | California Desert Photographer | Casey + Jason

It wasn’t hard to fall in love with Casey and Jason when I sat down for coffee with them (at Canabru, of course). Aside from being insanely gorgeous, Casey literally glowed with love for Jason, whilst Jason beamed his love right back at Casey.

So. Much. Adorable.

Toward the end of our meeting, Casey mentioned that the desert was a special place for Jason, and that she was hoping we’d be able to do their engagement session in Glamis! Having just returned from another destination engagement session, I thought this was a brilliant idea.

Glamis Engagement Photos

I’m not going to lie… Glamis engagement photos were a little bit more of an adventure than I anticipated… for more reason than one.

  1. I’ve never had to call one of my couples before and ask if they can get my car un-stuck from the sand. (Yup. You probably saw that coming, but I didn’t.)
  2. This was crazy storm day in Southern California! And, of course, if it’s storming anywhere else in Southern California, it’s wayyyyy crazy storming in the desert! So not only did we have typical blustery weather for the desert, but we were on a time crunch, trying to beat the storm. You’ll have to check out tomorrow’s part 2 post with their Glamis family photos to see what happened.
  3. Yeah, family photos also. So kids + desert + storm = chaos (in the very best way!)

In all seriousness, there isn’t one thing about this session I don’t like. The colours, the smiles, the storm, the crazy… I would happily shoot in the sand dunes any day of the week.

Remember when I mentioned the crazy wind? It was attacking Casey’s blouse, so whilst she ran to the car for a quick change, I grabbed some photos of the surrounding dunes and desert. It was pretty clear at this point that the storm was headed straight for us!

These two are sooooo cute together… It was truly hard to get a bad photo. Casey has this gorgeous, intense gaze that absolutely transfixed me and made me feel like I could see into her soul. And Jason? He just kept loving on Casey the way I’d first noticed when we met for coffee. Seriously, I say it every time, but quiet love is my very favourite kind.

Okay, now that we’ve established that Casey should have been a model, can we take a moment to admire the incredible scenery of the desert, and the unbelievable colours? I know most of my weddings and engagement sessions are in green forests and gold hills, but for real, this is gorgeous.

The sand. I seriously was dying.

Holy picturesque, Batman. Like… no words.

^^ Ring shot of all ring shots!!! I don’t think I’ve ever loved a photo quite like I love this one. <3 Glamis engagement photos, ftw!

Casey and Jason!!! Wow, you two are the epitome of what I hope for in my couples: dedicated, sweet, fun, adventurous, heartfelt… I could go on and on. I loved every moment of our session, and your July wedding can’t come fast enough.
