There was a chance this session could have been canceled. Only because of the weather, but my goodness, am I thankful we still went for it! Turns out, shooting with low rainclouds surrounding you is pure magic, just like this sweet couple. We made our way down the trailhead, Brenna in heels the whole time, the sound of wet gravel beneath our feet. The smell of rain mixed with the damp Earth was intoxicating, and everything around us was so quiet and still. The grass surrounding the trail glistened with tiny drops of rain, and the branches hung a little lower than usual, heavy with the glassy dew from the shower they had just received. But what made us all stop in our tracks were the clouds that lingered close to the ground, capping the cliffs as the sun beamed through with just enough time for us to capture it. The mountains behind Brenna and Jonathan radiated with an orange luminance that will be embedded in my memory forever. It was honestly enchanting, as are they! I still look back on these pictures and can’t believe it was real! I can’t wait for their brunch wedding and I’m so incredibly blessed to have met them. Their love is so beautiful and I can’t wait to see it grow. Brenna and Jonathan, as you take this beautiful next step in your relationship, always reminisce on this day. Look back and think of the sweet simplicity of holding each other with cold hands in the desert. Always remember. I know I will.
