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!
This lovely ranch wedding was the last one I was able to shoot this spring before the strict restrictions went into place. Luckily for me, it was a beautiful one to end on. I’ll just be over here daydreaming on this one until the weddings start up again….
These two widely photogenic seniors decided to do a combined session, and it ended up being so much fun. We started downtown and the weather was warm and sunny….by the time we hit the woods it was cloudy and cold…and then the lookout was freeeeeeezing and ridiculously windy. These two couldn’t have been better sports with it all though, and the resulting images made it totally worth it.
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 “old elegance” feel to their wedding day, and they accomplished that beautifully. The Hassayampa Inn was the perfect setting to complete the old Prescott ambiance.
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.
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.
