Gorgeous Starry Night Engagement Photos

Photographer team Robert Paetz and Felicia Wong have recently developed a new trend for engagement photo shoots. The married duo combine nature with portraits, using long exposures to produce these romantic moments underneath the stars.

The idea was sparked when one couple requested an engagement session in Joshua Tree, California in the middle of 100-degree August weather. Not excited about spending the day in the heat, Wong jokingly suggested having the photo shoot in the middle of the night. And so, they created what they call “astro wedding photography.”

Along with the willing participant couples, the photo team travels far away from the city lights and as far as 100 miles into the dark wilderness and deserts in order to document the stunning galaxies of glowing stars overhead. Paetz says finding the proper setting and the right conditions is a challenge. A bright moon, a cloudy sky, or a location too close to the city produces less than stellar results, but the team keeps a close eye on the phases of the moon and the weather. And the results are spectacular!
