Sunrise Styled Shoot at the Palm Springs Windmills
When your best friend from college just also happens to be a gorgeous model, you go on a trip together and take pictures! Drew and I had a wedding in Los Angeles, California and I flew out early to spend time with Marisa who is an absolutely incredible, talented, goofy, beautiful, so super fun, selfless front line super hero travel ICU covid unit nurse in LA. I wanted to visit the Palm Springs Windmills and I'm so stoked she agreed to model for me!! Back in 2014 ish she was on the of first people I took photos of during her nursing school graduation, and since then she has been nonstop encouraging and supporting me, my business, and my art. She got to pick out the wedding dress to rent and I found a bunch of cute items on Amazon! She even had roller blades packed in her car and of course we had to break them out! It actually rained the sunset we were supposed to photograph so she was incredible, as always, and woke up before sunrise to get ready, drive us from Joshua Tree, and brave hurricane winds in a gown. I was so stressed and wanted everything to be perfect because I waned it to be perfect for her. We ran around the sand, danced to salsa music, tried new things, it was perfect. I am SO grateful we got to have fun, get creative, and explore California together. She is my hero and I'm so blessed over 13 years later she's in Drew and I's lives! We love you Maris!
