Zach and Nicole are owners of Club K9 where we met a few years ago when our dogs went there for their one year of working/service dog training. Nicole wanted her engagement shoot somewhere with rock structures and a desert setting for their scenery. She showed me her reference photos which I was very familiar with since I shoot out at Joshua Tree all the time and know the rocks are specific to the Mojave Desert. Not wanting to drive to Joshua Tree, I knew of a spot about an hour outside of Vegas that had the exact scenery they wanted.
We set off for my Secret Spot and arrived about 30 mins before golden hour to hike out into the desert to get to the rocks. We shot for little over an hour and hiked back with some headlamps and light sticks, trying to avoid all the desert creatures that creep out at night! I absolutely loved getting to capture them and their fun personalities – we laughed our asses off the entire time. I can’t wait to get to shoot their wedding in 2021
