katie + lewis II

Wanting to have a bunch of engagement photos displayed at their wedding, these two decided to have a second round of engagement photos taken….this time, a little closer to home. We had to reschedule about 4 different times due to pandemic restrictions, but it was so worth the wait.

lacey + lucas

This session ended up being a bit of a battle all around….my toddler and dogs all decided that they wanted to accompany Lacey and Lucas in their photos. Seriously….I had to just strategically crop Oliver out of the pics. :) Then of course there were the typical 40mph spring winds. I figured that wasn’t enough, so being both of these lovely people had a background in rodeo, I’d throw a horse in the mix for good measure. They handled it all like champs though, and I’m so happy with the results!

s + s engagement

Desert sessions have officially stolen my heart. The light and setting for this engagement session was perfect! It also doesn’t hurt that these two were ridiculously photogenic..

emma + dallas

We had a typical early fall day in the southwest for these two…..insanely windy! Had it not been that they were driving up from the valley to do the engagement session, we would have definitely rescheduled. Luckily these two were insanely photogenic, so they would have looked good in any conditions. We did a combination of hiding from the wind, and then just embracing….and honestly I’m a little partial to the dramatic flare it adds.

k + l engagement

Anyone who knows me, knows I will rarely speak highly of anything where it’s 100 degrees…..but this desert engagement session was absolutely dreamy. The Desert Botanical Gardens provided the most perfect backdrop for this beautiful couple’s session. The setting….that light….the couple….perfection. ❤
