Keira and Chris were like a breath of fresh air. They’ve been together for seven years which I could totally feel by their connection, however their love was still fresh like they had just started dating. 

Planning their session was a lot of fun. A lot of thought and intentionality went into it. Jacumba is a special place for them. It hold lots of meaning, adventure, and exploration. It’s like “traveling in a space-time vortex- between the desert tower, train graveyard and UFO repair shop. The stunning stone fireplace and chimney of a hotel that burned down decades ago stands out against the otherwise unremarkable roadside. Jacumba has all the elements of a magical adventure story and now it is a part of theirs.”

Not only was the location well thought out, but so were their outfits. The outfits and location meshed so well together and created a well rounded shoot! They went for an earthy, boho vibe and it oozes from every picture! So, pro-tip: when dressing for your session take into account your location.
