A Rhapsody of Sand and Sun – William and Alice’s Palm Springs Engagement

3:20 PM

The wind was real. But damn, so was the gorgeous.


Earlier this summer I was invited to drop in for a couple of hours to explore Palm Springs with William and Alice! I arrived midnoon just as the sun was cresting above a nearby mountain range and casting perfectly diffused light over the Korakia Pensione. With soft light accentuating the already bold colors of this Moroccan inspired wonderland, we figured this spot was as good any other to begin our journey!

Quite the adventurers, and with Alice’s hair perfectly in place, we deemed it appropriate to visit a nearby windfarm windtunnel…at full force. A bit crazy? Yes. But the towering windmill goliaths against the pale blue gradient of the day’s sunset led to some strikingly minimalist portraits of the two…too good not to attempt. And a bucketlist item for this guy.

And to pay proper homage to the naming of the region, we closed out the day with a series of palm-backed shots at dusk with the moon conveniently at our six! A day most splendid…can’t wait for the wedding!
