Taylor + Daniel | Sunset Engagement in the Sand Dunes

North Algodones Dunes Wilderness Area

Commonly known as ‘the Dunes’ (or more inaccurately as just Glamis), this diverse wilderness is so much more than dirt and four-wheelers.

Steady winds carry the tiny grains into a scarce, but ever-changing expanse that provided an absolutely magical backdrop for this engagement session. It was a joy to capture their playful sides morph into a more serious reflection of the special bond they share as the moon replaced the setting sun.


Taylor & Daniel, no strangers to the desert, made the trip out from Arizona, where they met in hair school and currently live together. They are patiently waiting for their beautiful forest wedding this summer In Oregon! (Hello, So am I!) When I asked Taylor how they met; In Taylor’s words, “the moment I met him, I thought oh shit – I’m in trouble”. They were inseparable since that day. Daniel called it three weeks in which he told her, “I’m going to marry you someday…” The pair quickly became best friends and have been inseparable since, doing everything from binge-watching t.v. series to attending concert festivals. They even work together at <a href=”https://www.habitsalon.com/” target=”_blank”>Habit Salon</a> being rad hair stylists and killing it with styling on the weekends for weddings often. The love they share and the fun, carefree nature of their relationship radiated through their engagement photos.
