I adore this couple. I did small shoot for them in the spring and they were seriously the sweetest. When Sam contacted me that he wanted to do an engagement shoot when they were visiting again this fall, I was so excited! And a little nervous as I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. Seriously though….what guy thinks ahead enough and books the engagement shoot for their trip, prior to proposing?! I’m so glad he did because these two are so stinkin’ beautiful together….
This beautiful autumn wedding was definitely planned with their guests in mind. From the lovely venue, to having the delicious Rosa’s Italian restaurant cater the buffet, to having a donut bar in lieu of a cake…..I definitely wasn’t complaining. It was such an enjoyable wedding to shoot!
This was such a fun fall engagement session, with such a lovely couple! I can wait for their May wedding!
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 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!
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.
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!
It’s not easy to look natural with a giant camera pointed at you, but this couple nailed it. They were so fun and interactive, and absolutely I love the results!
As this couple was flying in from across the country, we had scheduled the shoot for later in the week….well that didn’t work. With winds of over 50mph predicted we had to move the shoot for the day they flew in. So after getting up in the middle of the night to catch their plane, and then traveling all day…they got to take photos! This sweet couple didn’t miss a beat though and I’m so happy we squeezed in this gorgeous shoot!!
