I've been watching a series of documentaries while editing lately, which has me very much longing for the outdoors. So here are some pictures from a brief camping trip in Joshua Tree. How life manages to thrive in such barren conditions never ceases to amaze me.
Everywhere I go I wander into libraries, I find them pretty fascinating (and occasionally a good source of free internet while traveling). This one is the Seattle Public library by Rem Koolhaas, a really interesting labyrinth of spaces and an excellent place to read while waiting for someone to finish work.
Eugene and Sharon are a really sweet couple, and we had a wonderful time shooting their engagement. We wandered around Crystal Cove with their two sisters in tow, who were wonderful in helping and making them laugh (thanks Katherine and Heidi!). Granted, Sharon and Eugene were so natural in front of the camera that it made everything very easy.
They first got to know each other while setting up chairs for church every Sunday morning. So it was fitting that we incorporated a chair into their engagement session. :)
Looking forward to capturing your wedding day, Sharon and Eugene!
