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.
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!
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..
These two wanted a very “fall-ish” looking setting for their engagement shoot, and I definitely think this spot fit the bill. I’m so glad I got to do one last shoot at this historic location before it became a hotel.
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.
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. ❤
This definitely goes in the books as one of my favorite engagement shoots to date. Not only was the couple gorgeous, they were so easy to work with. They had me pick the location (they’d never even seen it), and they had no problem hiking on the boulders in dress attire or standing at the base of a tree we were all allergic to. The results were definitely worth the sneezes the next day. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
