When I went to Southern California last summer to photograph Grant and Taylor's reception, my friend Sam picked me up in LA and we took the long way to San Diego. When we arrived in Joshua Tree the sun was still blazing over head, so we waited out the heat of the day in a saloon down the street from the Joshua Tree Inn. We left around sunset and the dusky desert was just incredible. It took hours before it actually got dark. We sat by the pool in the fading light until after 10, drinking a bottle of Santa Barbara riesling that Sam had packed in his suitcase. When we tuned in for the night a dove named Emmy Lou cooed softly from the rafters.
