We’re so excited to share these images from Amanda + Jordan’s desert engagement shoot! After a rainy week, the clouds parted and gave us a quintessential Arizona day – beautiful and filled with sunshine. Amanda + Jordan currently live in New York, but are both originally from Arizona (and getting married here in just a few months!) so we wanted to show off their home state and accent the beauty of the desert in their engagement session. I love the soft, glowing light and ethereal nature of these images. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon, you two! xo
Last week we headed north for Darren + Meghan’s engagement shoot in Flagstaff. Darren + Meghan were amazing despite the freezing cold temps (my native Phoenix roots had me in at least 4 layers of clothing!) and we had an awesome time exploring Darren’s hometown. They’re getting married in the spring in Sedona and we can’t wait. Here are just a few favorites from our time together – thanks for a great afternoon, guys! xo
Happy Friday, friends! This afternoon we’re going to the State Fair for a little family fun, an annual tradition that we look forward to every year. We’ve been so busy with weddings this month that it will be nice to spend a little time relaxing and just having fun with the kiddos.
Earlier this week we spent some time getting to know Karlie + Jon, a sweet couple who are getting married next year in Dallas. They asked for a scenic desert backdrop, so we made sure to give them the authentic Arizona experience, complete with rattlesnakes, tarantulas and jumping cacti. (Aaron narrowly avoided stepping on the rattlesnake, a near-miss that left us all a little exhilarated and terrified). It’s probably the most memorable engagement session we’ve done to date!
Rattlesnake encounters aside, I love these images for so many reasons: the wide open desert, the gorgeous couple, and the beautiful light. Karlie + Jon, we loved capturing these images for you!
