As this pair had planned just a small civil ceremony in Phoenix, when they were up here elk hunting, they wanted to do an “engagement” type shoot. Any couple that can go hunting together and still decide to get married….I’m impressed. :) These two were such a blast to work with and I couldn’t be happier for them!

These two were such an adorable couple to work with! They were up for anything and put up with all my crazy requests….including going on a little hike when she had some serious heels on. I can’t wait for their late summer wedding!

Being comfortable in front of a giant lens isn’t the easiest, but when you are, the resulting photos are magic. This couple is proof of that. They were so animated and interactive during their engagement shoot! Plus, I got to work with Creative Space Film for the first time, which was so fun!

It’s so fun getting to know more about my wedding couples through their engagement sessions. The groom-to-be of this sweet couple is actually from a rival town of where I went to high school in Wisconsin. Go Wildcats. :) Such a small world. Can’t wait for their spring wedding.

This session definitely goes into the books as one of my favorites! The Sedona location couldn’t have provided a better backdrop for this engagement session. Granted, if you’ve ever been to Oak Creek Canyon on a Saturday, we had to work for it to find secluded spots…..which meant I had the bride-to-be hiking in wedges. The results were so worth it though! The creek, the lush woods, the red rocks….all of it added such gorgeous drama to the shots.

It takes quite a bit to get me up well before dawn…..this early morning engagement session in Jerome was totally worth the early rise! I loved working with this easy-going, up for anything couple….can’t wait for their upcoming summer wedding!

This session didn’t go quuuuuite as planned…. to start off I was supposed to fly in over a day in advance and thanks to airline delays, I made it with like 3 minutes to spare. Then there was the weather….it was in the high 30’s with blustery winds and a mix of sleet/snow/rain. Not exactly ideal for photos. This adorable couple was seriously the best sports though…enduring the horrible conditions and ignoring numb fingers and toes. :) It was totally worth it because I absolutely love the way these photos turned out! From the stormy, moody skies…to the one peek of sun we had…the weather added some gorgeous drama to this engagement session.
