Desert X Palm Springs // Christian+Rebecca
The way Rebecca described their love in her first email instantly got us. hook line and sinker (always wanted to use that saying). Madly and hopelessly in love. Moving slow to take care of each other. Together for five years and they never had photos taken together. She wanted someone to capture that “cautious caring tender protectiveness” – her words and after meeting them, could not have been more on point.
It’s always our intention to pull out real emotion and be able to bond with our couples in order to capture their essence in a photo. Knowing how much these photos meant to them we wanted so badly to deliver. And after we sent off their photos we soon got a text from Rebecca saying how we were able to get every single sweet face he makes at her. That was the best thanks we could ever receive.
We met with them before the sun rose. Shared coffee in her kitchen, with the curtains still drawn and the light on dim. We talked and laughed and talked too much where we missed the sunrise. We went outside and ran along the side of the street. Hopped in the car to an exhibition for Desert X. Went back to her house and hung around in the backyard. Went into town to share breakfast. All before 10am. It was a good morning.
