“Loving someone and having them love you back
is the most precious thing in the world.”
― Nicholas Sparks
Inititally I wanted to do their Trash-the-dress session in Joshua Tree. Not because it's the hip thing to do, but for some reason, that place escapes me still. Although I have shot at Joshua Tree twice now, I still feel like I barely scratched the surface of what that place has to offer. Someday, I suppose. But I was pleasantly surprised on how much fun I had shooting at the Broad. Credits go to Chai & Raf, for suggesting to shoot at there. But it was a bit of a challenge to shoot inside the actual museum. There were rules and regulations that we had to strictly follow, since disturbing the flow of foot traffic can get you kicked out of the place. So planning and envisioning the poses and the shots beforehand was a must. Prety much, there was a lot of standing around, me looking intently at a random spot and then, hurriedly telling them what to do before a crowd starts coming in. But it all worked out in the end. Chai & Raf's upbeat attitude helped with the flow of the session. I was even more surprsied how Raf, who is the most quiet and reserved of the three of us, never shied away from the poses I told him to do. I honestly think that, secretly, he actually enjoyed the attention and the compliments that were being given to them by the people at the museum. Well, they are deserving of such praise.
