What you'll do

We'll meet in town at the famed Joshua Tree Saloon just moments from the National Park then caravan a short distance to a secret and stunning location.

From here we'll venture out through the unique desert landscape, stopping to pose with the famous trees and eventually finding a stack of boulders to capture in amongst the magical light! I'll direct and take time to find your comfort zone. Feel free to bring different looks and props, too.

I can also close the session to just you and your loved ones after booking (for the option to shoot at a requested location, please inquiry or book as a private group)

I've created this experience to be fun and approachable!
All people, occasions, and ages welcome, dogs too. I turn around the photo content quickly because it's my desire to see people fall in love with this special place and have memories to share ASAP.

I'll also fill you in on some of the delicate native desert plants and wildlife as we create moments you'll cherish forever.
You will get a short edited video to a song of your choice! Check out my 5-star reviews for more and I can't wait to capture your desert moments together.

Additional shooting, editing, and drone shots available on request. Each guest attending should purchase a reservation. I offer early bird discounts as well as group rates.
Please inquire for branding, engagement, proposals.
Let make magic!

I’m a creative artist living my dream as a sustainable nomad!
Originally from NorCal, I spent a decade in LA and 4 years in the beautiful Mojave desert before becoming home-free 2 years ago and exploring the world.
I picked up cameras and editing over a decade back in an effort to capture my own video and photo content.
As my love for the craft grew I began creating for others too and discovered just how much joy I found in bringing out moments for people that tell a story and last a lifetime.
When I'm not off on assignments or exploring outside the country, I call the high desert home with my loving boyfriend and co-creator, friends, and community.
I'm most passionate about capturing subjects in natural settings and light, finding both comfort and vulnerability, and having fun while bringing the collective vision to life.

Aydra was so sweet and patient with our crazy 2 year old. Our pictures look so magical and we’re everything we wanted! Definitely recommend doing this to remember the beauty of Joshua Tree!

We had a fantastic shoot with Aydra! She was super adaptable when we suggested anything, incredibly friendly, and brought us to a really secluded and beautiful location in Joshua Tree. Absolutely loved this experience and highly recommend!

This was a great experience! Aydra was not only an amazing photographer but also cared about who I was as a person and she acted as a director and gave me great ideas for shots.

What a beautiful experience! Me and my boyfriend were a bit nervous since it was our first photo shoot but Aydra made us feel so comfortable! If you are looking for a photographer I definitely recommend her :)

My experience with Aydra was absolutely wonderful. Her responsiveness from booking thru the day of the shoot was prompt and you can tell she really cares. Aydra did a fantastic job directing me during the shoot and making me feel comfortable and I loved our conversations. She is also great with kids if you’re having a family shoot. My toddler was around for my shoot and he really responded to her. This was such a fun experience and I definitely recommend it.
