Palm Springs Windmills Engagement Session
Matt + Briana met on a blind date, set up by some mutual friends, nearly nine years ago. When we first met with them for some chit-chat and coffee a few weeks ago to talk to them about their upcoming wedding later this year, we had no idea they’d been together for so long because they act like they’re still so fresh in their relationship! It was so awesome to see that they are still so madly in love with each other, even after all these years.
And with that love, comes our favorite part about them - how they make each other a better person. Each year together, Briana says, they’ve exceeded their own expectations because they push each other to be better, supporting each other through all the ups and downs of life, supporting each other through college, through careers and now supporting each other through the craziness of planning their fall wedding in Idyllwild!
We hung out just a few days ago for their Palm Springs windmills engagement session (that was the one big request Bri had right from the get-go, was to go shoot at those windmills - even if it was super crazy windy!) and spent some time at the Palm Springs visitor’s center by the tram. Everything is so lush and green right now, the creosote and bristle brush bushes are blooming beautiful yellow flowers all over the desert floor, making our local lower desert a beautiful backdrop for engagement sessions (thank you, El Nino!). And we lucked out - the weather had been super hot the few days leading up to their session and on their session, it was a perfect spring day in the desert!
Congratulations Matt + Briana on your beautiful engagement, we are both so thrilled for you guys and are so excited for all your adventures coming up!
