GLAMIS SAND DUNES ADVENTURE SESSION
I have been trying to write this blog for months now and every time I start typing I end up starting over. I just can’t explain how much fun it was to shoot with these two. Emma and Chris are the type of people that you just instantly click with. The amount of respect and love they have for each other is unbelievable and you can tell the minute you are around them that they are soulmates.
They were so adventurous to go with us to the sand dunes in California. About 30 minutes before arriving I get a call from Emma saying that the main parking lot is being occupied with a movie set and that they are looking at other location ideas. Emma, being a creative and photographer herself, was so proactive with this! They were filming Jumanji 2 at the Glamis Sand Dunes and there were dozens of trailers, equipment, lights and people walking around where we were shooting. No, we didn’t get to see the Rock, Kevin Hart or Jack Black, but we did get to witness how big of a production it all was.
We ended up off-roading a bit to the campsites and taking our first half of photos there before going back where they were filming. We were completely alone in that isolated location and had the whole valley to ourselves. The untouched sand beneath us was as creamy and soft as it appears in the photos. We ran around taking shots and then moved next door to the Hollywood set.
As we take photos of their second outfit, the sun begins to peak from the dense clouds and provided a soft, vibrant glow around us. The scenery was breathtaking, and I couldn’t help but to take a moment to appreciate where we were and where our business takes us. I am truly blessed to do what I love and get to witness other peoples love. Emma & Chris are nothing short than perfect for each other and we can’t wait to shoot with them again. We’d promise to see Jumanji 2 together; I just need to watch the first 😊
