This Glamis Sand Dunes engagement session was one of my photography dreams come true! I have been wanting to shoot out at the dunes for years now so when Shoshana and Steven mentioned wanting a breathtaking natural backdrop for their photos, it was one of the first places to come to mind!
The dunes are about a two and a half hour drive from San Diego but it is well worth every mile for obvious reasons! Shooting at the sand dunes can be tricky though because you have to be very careful of off road vehicles driving through the hills. A lot of people bring their campers, quads and bikes out to the desert for a camping trip so you must always be on alert. In the winter months, this place gets insanely busy so it is much easier to shoot there during the summer and fall since everyone is staying away from the heat!
There are two distinct facts about this session that you might never guess…. The first one being that it was 108 degrees when we arrived at the location and 99 when the sun was completely down at the end of it! Shoshana and Steven looked absolutely flawless despite the heat! The second one being that all of these images were only taken a few hundred feet from where we parked the car! You really don’t have to go far for these views and that’s just one more reason of why I love this location so much.
If you are considering a Glamis Sand Dunes engagement session, please reach out to me! I am already dying to get back to this gorgeous place!
