[Palm Springs] Engagement photo session at Moorten Botanical Garden


In the mid-October, I had a chance to go to Palm Springs in California to photograph this beautiful couple at one of my dream destination - Moorten Botanical Garden. I first heard of this place in 2016 from a local florist Ronn of Vaso Bello when I was asking him for recommendations in shooting locations. I fell in love with this cactus garden instantly - maybe it’s because I have special feelings for cactus, because I had two huge turning point in my life in Arizona back in ‘97 and ‘04.

This time I was fortunate to meet Charlotte and Anthony thorough our common friend Chris. Our shoot was just for an hour, but learning their love story was very inspiring. Anthony has been training for the 2020 Olympics, and Charlotte is such a great support for him. On the shoot, I got to see so many adorable smiles on her face, and true happiness to be next to her from his face. Smiles are contagious. Let’s share our smiles with your favorite people today :)
