“The sloping dunes of Glamis, California have easily one of the most breathtaking and unexpected views! The endless windswept drifts are painted with romance and dripping in perfection, leaving our admiring eyes yearning to adventure their sun-kissed features. Their dancing hills were the perfect landscape for Dina & Mike’s gorgeous desert engagement session. With plans for a spring wedding in Morocco, these lovebirds wanted their portraits to reflect the raw Moroccan terrain–a request delivered in absolute spades by Heather Payne Photography! This stunning session exudes amour and captures this sweet couple’s gentle affections so delicately against the sandy wilds. What a beautiful way to celebrate so great a love in so grand a place!” – THE WHITE WREN

From BRIDE, Dina:

“The first thing that came up in our mind was a desert theme, a beautiful place with sand and natural color in it. Since my background is interior design, crafting this wedding to make it a special one is my priority. Heirloom theme came up in my mind, something old and vintage with the natural color like the desert sand… Heather captured our engagement session in the most natural and organic way and created the most timeless images that we will forever treasure.”
