Salvation Mountain Engagement Session: Dominique + Cam

salton sea engagement

Calling all Twilight fans! Recognize somebody in this shoot? Yep, it’s Cam Gigandet and his (ridiculously adorable) fiancé, Dominique. It’s always fun to tag along on a celeb engagement shoot and we’re super excited to feature this free-spirited duo’s Salvation Mountain + Salton Sea session today! If you can’t already tell, Dom + Cam are stylish, laid-back + totally in love. Let’s hear a bit more about the two of them and their awesome shoot locations from Kelly of Wild Whim Design + Photography:

I have been photographing these two and their adorable kids, Ever + Rekker, for the last few years and when Dom got ahold of me with the news they were finally ready to make this wedding thing a reality, I knew Salvation Mountain and the Salton Sea were the perfect fit. The long drive was well worth it as we had a blast exploring the area and making some incredible images together.

And at dusk, the Salton Sea couldn’t have been more idyllic. Such a perfect way to end a perfect shoot! :)
