We were making our way through Joshua Tree National Park to get to our flight back home. We timed it out so we’d be able to pit stop throughout and our final stop was in the Cholla gardens. Hands down my favorite spot! We took out our Subway sandwiches, ate in our rental car and took in the scenery. Since we had a couple of beers leftover from the weekend we took one each and walked the trails between the cactus. No wasting beer.

As we made our way out to leave, Jimmy spotted a proposal going down. At risk of being a complete creeper, I offered them a quick session for them to have some keepsakes to look back on and they were thrilled! We did our impromptu thing and I’m in loooove y’all.

This was seriously the cherry on top of our entire trip and I love thinking about the day and all that had to happen and line up to be there at that particular time to be able to capture those memories for them. God’s timing is literal perfection and I can’t wait to share more with you soon!

Sometimes you see an amazing big moon low in the sky, and yet when you photograph it, it turns into a tiny spec that looks like a problem dust spot on your sensor!
⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
The secret is, you can make it look bigger by shooting with a long lens. For this image, I had Geralyn and Rod run far away from me while I shot with a 70-200mm telephoto lens maxed out at 200mm

Joshua Tree National Park is such a unique place in Southern California. It’s covers over 800,000 acres of land! .
There is just no other place like this. Once you enter the park you are welcomed by thousands of Joshua Trees they look like human stick figures waving their hands. 🌵 .
Fall and Winter is definitely the best time to visit if you’re not a big fan of the the summer out here. .
My go to places in Joshua Tree is Hall if Horrors, Baker Dam, Skull Rick, and Arch Rock. .

This babe is not only planning her own wedding for THIS FRIDAY, but is also coordinating the styled shoot of my dreams TODAY. Yeah. She’s the crazy one who wanted to do both in the same week. ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⠀⁣
Stephanie has become more than just a bride. She’s a confidant, one of my biggest cheerleaders, a bad ass who somehow turns any disaster into a unicorn, and selflessly works herself to the bone for her people.⁣
⠀⠀⁣
Did I mention she’s one of my dearest friends? I don’t remember life without her! Sometimes we forget that we’re not just friends, and that I’m actually shooting her wedding, too 😂. ⁣
⠀⠀⠀⁣
I can’t wait to see the shoot we’ve put together today, and I can’t WAAAAAIT to capture one of my best friends marrying the man of her dreams. ⁣

Most wedding days are about the bride and groom... some are more about their dog who wants to be in every photo. Love this little guy!!!

They got engaged in Moab yesterday morning so naturally they had to stamp their National Park passports with the date! These two were so adorable.

Love is more than a feeling- it’s a choice. A choice to put someone ahead of yourself for the sole reason that they matter to you. ⁣

As humans, we instinctually revolve around ourselves. (Not talking about self care- self care is very important!) When we love someone else- we consciously step out of our orbit and open our heart and life. ⁣

When real love is reciprocated, each person serves the other. That kind of love shines so brightly. Marissa and Jose, you shine so brightly and inspire me to bring my best self into my marriage.⁣

Double tap if you could feel the love emanating from Marissa and Jose. 💕

Yesterday we strolled through old town with Ashley + Seth for their engagement session. 🎄
This sweet duo actually met on the dance floor at a wedding and now they are planning their own at the always beautiful Los Poblanos and we can’t wait!

Mariola & Ryan traveled all the way from Florida recently to not only spend time with their family but to also get some wedding tasks done. Like, their engagement photos. Who wants to see more? 😍⁠

we arrived back home in Denver yesterday afternoon from a long drive from Durango and we were basically asleep by 9:30 pm (which is actually early for us night owls). it was so wonderfully refreshing to spend hours upon hours with our beloved family members and friends and I can’t tell you how thankful I am that we were given the opportunity to take some time off to see everyone (although there are a few friends we didn’t get the chance to see, we know we will see you so very soon!). I may be sharing some photos from the trip in my stories but until then, feel free to head over to my personal account @ashleyjoyyce for some photos from the past week!

The last few moments of golden light as the sun tucks behind the mountains will always be my favorite 😍 And when your couple comes all the way from Ohio, you make sure to get them the full desert experience!! Meagan and Kevin’s destination anniversary session is on the blog tonight! I don’t know if Nicholas Sparks would ever set one of his books in the desert, but if he ever decided to, I feel like these two could totally be on the cover!! Four kids and so in love! 😍
