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!!
Not only are these two of the nicest people ever….they’re seriously gorgeous together. Even their dogs are photogenic. Which brings up my next point, I’m thinking about a new dog policy with my shoots…..you have to have them. If you don’t own a dog, one will be provided. :)
We were supposed to have clear weather until night, but of course as soon as I rolled into to Tucson….it started raining. I love the look of the desert when it rains, but it isn’t exactly ideal for an engagement session. We waited it out a bit and luckily it lightened up just enough to squeeze the session in. The clouds…the soft colors….the cactus….I’m so glad it all came together for this couple!
These two were struggling to decide between doing a natural background, or a more urban setting….so we just did both. I love the contrast of the two different looks! Can’t wait for their early fall wedding, at one of my favorite venues!
