One of my favorite things about being a photographer is I always get to go to awesome places. I mean, think about it, no one wants to take photos in an un-interesting place or of un-interesting things! Being a photographer I have the privelege of photographing the exciting, the unusual and the beautiful. I always love it when couples have some kind of unique vision for their enagement photos. I was thrilled when Tim and Bethany told me they wanted to do their photos at Salvation Mountain, a place that i've been wanting to visit for years! It was a 3 hour trek from Orange County to get there, and a 6.5 hour drive home to Fresno, but it was definitely worth it! Salvation Mountain is a giant art installation in Niland, CA just a few miles from the Salton Sea. A man named Leonard Knight built it using straw, adobe, and tons of paint! It's strangely beautiful and is a hidden gem out in the middle of 108 degree nowhere! I'm so glad we got to explore Salvation Mountain and take some engagement photos while doing it! It was quite an adventure!
