The Royal Hawaiian Motel, located in Baker CA,
has long since been abandoned.
Paul and Wendy came to us with a very interesting concept for their Day After Shoot. In Pauls words, We thought the “story” of newlyweds, still in their suit and dress, arriving at their remote honeymoon hotel only to find it abandoned could make for some arresting images. But of course we want them to be happy shots, so the idea would be a couple – like us – who really enjoy each others company whatever the circumstances are making the best of things. This was photographed on location in the freezing California high desert in November – it was so cold. Bravo to Paul and Wendy for coming up with such a cool concept and handling the cold as well as they did!
