If you love anything Harry Potter you will love this engagement shoot! I was never a fan of Harry Potter but Joey and Casundra's passion for these books made me want to read them all.
These two love birds were so much fun! I couldn't have asked for a better way to spend my Sunday afternoon. When we showed up to the dinosaur museum the clouds rolled over and gave us a beautiful sky, then it opened up with rain that flew sideways.
As soon as we made it out to Joshua Tree the weather was absolutely perfect! Not too cold, and the perfect amount of wind. Some would say that rain and wind are terrible for pictures. I say EMBRACE the surroundings you are given.
I always send out a style guide for my couples to help with the look of the shoot. In the guide I always suggest couples bring props that represent the two of them. Most people tend to not incorperate props for whatever reason. Instead of opting out they embraced their props. Their wedding is going to be Harry Potter themed. I CAN'T WAIT! I am a sucker for themed weddings.
Aside from the Harry Potter theme, they incorperated the American flag into the shoot because they are both Veterans. They met in the Navy and he asked her to go on a spontaneous date. She was hooked at that point.
Joey and Casaunra were such troopers and they were totally down to take a mini road trip to Joshua Tree National Park. This is by far one of my favorite locations.
