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. :)
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!
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!
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. :)
It doesn’t get much cuter than this little dude’s 1 year photo shoot. Airplane themed smash cake….pilot outfit…little ham for a subject. I mean, come on. Allllll the heart eyes for this session!
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!
To say this wedding didn’t go according to plan would be a bit of an understatement. It was supposed to take place on a beach in Puerto Rico….but unfortunately Hurricane Maria derailed those plans. And also left them stranded there for two weeks unable to get out. So for this being their plan b a couple months later…you would never know it. They were even able to bring a bit of the beach here to AZ. :)
These two are getting married in California in the fall; with a cliff, set in the pines, overlooking the ocean as their venue. Completely drool worthy….I know. They wanted something a little different for their engagement photos so they decided to do them in Prescott while visiting family. We finally got a cloudy day here in AZ and I’m so thankful. It set the perfect backdrop for their adorable session.
