Happy Valentine's Day! It has long been established that Valentine's is kind of bullshit but let's be honest, all holidays are kind of bullshit so why not at least enjoy one that's all about the love in your life? Frankly every day is what you choose for it to be anyway so if you want every day to be Groundhog's Day then I say fuck it. My way of celebrating love is by posting a set of two of my favorite models together in one of my favorite places in the desert. Unfortunately for me Corey will be moving to Minnesota to support her boyfriend with some family business that's pulling him back home so we wanted to try to get in a few shoots before she left. Corey and I discussed night shooting under the full moon in the desert. Once we established a shoot Corey wanted to invite Minni to come along as she had been a fan of her work for some time.
I decided the best place would be a road nestled between Joshua Tree and The Salton Sea known as Box Canyon. I first discovered Box Canyon by accident on a shoot with Marie out to The Salton Sea where I missed my exit off the 10 freeway and had to take the next exit. This led us through a one direction road on the way to Mecca surronded by walls of rock. Marie and I were running out of gas and couldn't spend long in Box Canyon so I knew a return visit would be needed. The full moon conditions were perfect and the chemistry between Minni and Corey was perfect. I thought the love they demonstrated in this set and my own love for each of them would be a great set for Valentine's Day. Enjoy!
