Get ready for an adventurous couple (and now friends) that chose the sand dunes for their engagement session.
The sand dunes are about three hours drive from Las Vegas and located in the Death Valley National Park. If you ever have a chance to visit, you will be blown away by its vastness and soft curved geometric shapes created by the shifting sand. Also, our plan was to take advantage of one of the darkest skies in the US to play with astrophotography engagement photos.
On the way, we made a quick stop at historical ruins found nearby Death Valley. As we drove towards the sand dunes, a massive sandstorm hit the area, and visibility was dismal. Luckily we were close enough and arrived at the dunes safely. As you can imagine, a sandstorm at the sand dunes can be pretty wild, but after the long drive, Patrina & Kyle were totally up for the challenge – and so were we.
Weather control is definitively not one of our skills – although we wish it were. We believe that when nature gives you a challenging situation, play it to its strength. In this case, the hazy mood and feel created by the combination of sand and wind. But of course, we couldn’t have done it without Patrina & Kyle’s adventurous hearts and upbeat attitude. Thank you both!
