There is a horror movie involving murder and deception (supposedly based on actual events) about it, Corey Taylor of Stone Sour wrote a song about it, claiming it’s about being as far away from home as possible. It’s in the Urban Dictionary as the last place on earth, and many people drive by it daily, never actually knowing what lies beyond that ominous exit sign. You’ve seen it on your way to LA, or on your way home to Vegas. You laughed, maybe a little too nervously as you passed it, joking about what might be down that road. You know the one I’m talking about.

John and Dalisa of Altf first took us there for our engagement session back in 2010, and thought it only fitting to do Alicia’s second set of maternity photos there, after all, it’s a place that we just love, and has all the mystery you can handle. You saw her on Part 1 for her session out at Calico Basin, now join us for a ride down Zzyzx road on a full moon.

Once again, thanks to the wonderful team at Makeup in the 702.

You know how much we love wind. Moody weather, cloudy mornings, windy days on the dry lake bed, a storms a comin’. We love days with unique weather and we got a nice dose of it when we met up with JJ and Junella for some vintage dry lake bed engagement fun. These two make a very dynamic couple and spend most of their time together laughing in a very contagious way. We can’t wait for their wedding with the fabulous Scheme Events coming up. Stay tuned for more of these two!

Did I mention JJ is a fantastic cook? A man after my own heart…

Four wheel drive and train track were the name of the game when Steven showed up for some unconventional senior photos on the Jean Dry Lake Bed. We had more than perfect weather for an afternoon in the desert. Scuba certified and looking sharp behind the wheel, Steven is off to Colorado to go into rehab medicine. We can’t wait to see what else he does in the future, and we guarantee  it will be bright!

With Stanley Kubrick’s Dr. Strangelove (or: How I Learned to Stop Worrying and Love the Bomb) as inspiration, we headed out to the Jean dry lake bed for a very unique newborn photo. Slim Pickens would no doubt approve.

We knew Stephanie and Jason were a perfect match for us as soon as we met. They met while Jason was racing dirt bikes and have been together full throttle ever since. We had a fantastic time photographing their engagement session and their wedding was just more octane fueled fun. Trading in their helmets and knobby tires for a zebra striped wedding theme, you just couldn’t not have fun with these two.
