These two had a big wedding planned on the beach in Mexico, but as not all family could make that celebration, they decided to do another small ceremony in the pines here in Prescott. It was simple, intimate, and so dang beautiful. Nothing against the beaches of Mexico…but this would be pretty hard to beat.
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.
If you’ve followed my work at all, you know I can’t resist a backyard wedding….when the “backyard” is a gorgeous lake in Northern Minnesota on the border of Canada, it honestly can’t be beat. This day had it all…beautiful setting, a little sun shower during the ceremony for good luck, and the sweetest couple around.
Couples seriously don’t come any sweeter than these two! I’m so glad everything turned out so beautiful on their wedding day.
This wedding was everything an early summer wedding should be…..light, airy, and absolutely stunning. Not to mention the bride and groom are some of my absolute favorites. It made for such a fun wedding to photograph!
The spring/early summer wedding season has kept me insanely busy this year, and it’s reflected in my lack of posting. Now that I have a little breathing time, hopefully I can catch up a bit…..starting with this gem of a simple backyard wedding. Simple and sweet….just the way I like it.
They say rain is good luck on your wedding day….in which case, this couple is super lucky. :) Although not ideal conditions for an outdoor wedding, the gloomy skies at such a gorgeously green venue sure made for pretty photos!
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!
Give me all the desert maternity sessions please! These two parents to-be are expecting their first little babe in a few short weeks, and they seriously couldn’t be sweeter. Their little guy is going to be one lucky and loved babe!
