Amanda & Davey // A Musical Jaunt to Joshua Tree with Bjorn & The Sun

This is Amanda and Davey, the musical duo behind Bjorn and The Sun. I had the pleasure of photographing them this past October while traveling through Southern California on a birthday adventure / working vacation.

This was my first time in Joshua Tree National Park and it kind of blew me away. The sky was full of bright fluffy clouds, having just stormed the night before. The light was fantastic! We drove through the park, stopping when I spotted a location that was too good to pass up. The sun kept peeking in and out of the clouds allowing for some really fun and dramatic light. I don’t think I’m wrong when I say that this was one of the absolute best days to visit and photograph Joshua Tree. I had a huge- ass smile plastered on my face the entire time we were there. (Excuse me while I geek out over light for moment… *drool*)

I juggled three cameras, film + digital, while we walked through narrow paths to a secret little oasis then back out again to catch the sunset. Did you know that while in the desert the sky opposite from the sun is bathed in color during the sunset? I didn’t… It was amazing!

And Amanda and Davey, they’re the sweetest! I could have spent all day photographing these two and am eager to catch up with them the next time I visit Los Angeles. If you haven’t yet, you need to check out their music, especially the Young and Restless music video they created using a film video camera. So rad!
