I was so looking forward to this shoot as I hadn’t seen Glenna since high school, and now she had a sweet family too. To say not everything went according to plan with this shoot would be a bit of an understatement. We had everything from a dead battery in my vehicle, rain showers to dodge, and then locked keys in the car. Even with the “challenges”…..this fall family session was so fun. And I’m a little obsessed with their little dog. The least outdoorsy dog I’ve ever seen and it was hilarious.
At the risk of sounding really old….I gotta ask. What happened to the awkward teenage stage?!? The seniors I’ve had the pleasure of photographing make high school look gooooood. This girl was no exception…..ridiculously gorgeous and so fun to work with.
After our first attempt getting completely rained out, mother nature totally redeemed herself with the light on the second attempt. This adorable family + set at the base of Granite Mountain + that light = perfection. As Alex and Mark didn’t get engagement photos or bridal portraits done, we had to sneak in a few of just the two of them too.
I adore this little lady and her momma. She’s seven weeks behind Oliver in age and it’s so fun to watch them grow together. This little doll is all girl though….even her cry is cute and feminine. :)
We meant to shoot family photos when miss K was just a babe, but better late than never! Two years later, this family is still the cutest. Actually, I take that back….they get cuter.
I swear this wedding was designed with a photographer in mind. There were so many sentimental details and personal touches. From the hand-me-down pearls, the wedding dress worn by both the bride’s mother and grandmother, the wedding arch the couple made out of horse shoes (both are farriers), and the buckskin dress with beads passed down the generations. Everything had a story….and so much love.
First and foremost, I gotta say how much I love this venue. Trees…gorgeous shade….water…features that aren’t easy to find with an Arizona wedding venue. Then there was this couple. Amazing to work with and so much love between them. They put their wedding on the back burner for 10 years….but it was definitely worth the wait.
With weddings it’s rare for everything to go according to plan, the weather to cooperate, and everything to be on time. This wedding was definitely one of those lucky ones, and it all came together beautifully for this lovely couple!
I had the pleasure of shooting this sweet couple’s engagement photos….wedding….and now maternity. It’s so fun to be able to grow with my clients. I can’t wait to meet their baby girl in a few short weeks; and judging by the parents…..she’s gonna be one beautiful baby!
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!
