This engagement session was taken right as the monsoons were starting to make their appearance here in northern AZ. I feared we might get rained out but luckily the storms held off and the monsoon conditions created the best light for this session though! We got all the lighting in one session….dark and moody, to light and hazy, and then finally bright and pure magic. There was a price to pay for this light though and it was my makeup melting off my face and onto the back of my camera. :)
It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.
These two wanted just a simple celebration, with a ceremony set in the gorgeous pines of Goldwater Lake. It was short, sweet, and oh so beautiful.
These two were so dang fun to work with! They brought their own music (brilliant!) and just had a great time. It made taking their photos so easy, and I love how fun and candid these images turned out!
Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)
This bride to-be texted me prior to their session to warn me that they weren’t photogenic….at all. The second I saw them pull up, I new she had lied. ;) These two were so fun and interactive, they were a blast to work with. Combine that with a perfect country backdrop….I’m in love with the results.
This wedding was small and simple….but definitely not short on beautiful details. I also think they picked the one non-windy day of the entire spring, which definitely helped me!
I love couples that are able to have fun and interact in front of the camera….which definitely isn’t the easiest to do! These two nailed it though. I can’t wait for their November wedding!
We unfortunately had crazy to winds to contend with on this sweet couple’s big day…..welcome to spring in the southwest. We made it work though, and I’m so happy with the way the photos turned out! And on a side-note, can we all take a second to appreciate how photogenic the bride’s horse is!?! I mean come on….
When picturing a small, intimate garden wedding, they don’t come any prettier than this. Set in the heart of Scottsdale, this venue made the most lovely backdrop for this sweet and simple wedding.
