Portraits with Joy Maura in Grand Junction

Joy and I met because we are both recent photographer transplants to Grand Junction! We’ve met a few times over cups of coffee and finally ventured out to shoot together a few weeks ago. Joy took me to this amazing spot in Grand Junction that she said reminded her of Sedona and it did not disappoint! So we hustled out for sunset on a trail I had never been to before, where the canyon started to climb out of the valley. The sun kept going in and out of the clouds, a rainstorm swelled into the valley in the far off distance, and I followed a rainbow on my way home from this shoot. It. was. amazing. And such a reminder of the diversity that exists in this little (big) valley.

Joy is an amazinggggg elopement and boudoir photographer also located in the Grand Valley!
