Corie & Joe met in high school through a mutual friend and have been together for 16 years!  They just got engaged last year and are ready to celebrate their marriage with their three kids.  They love going to concerts and taking family vacations together.  When we first met, they were getting ready for a family trip to Disneyland!  (These two are defiantly after my own heart!)

For Corie & Joe’s engagement session, they took me to Gilbert’s Heritage District.  Being from the West side of town, I do not head out to Gilbert often and have never been to the Heritage District.  I was pretty excited to check out the new area and see what amazing photo opportunities awaited.  Corie & Joe love going to the Heritage District for the amazing restaurants that are there.  As we explored the are they shared with me their favorite spots to eat.  And they are not the only ones that go there for the food.  By the end of our morning session, the sidewalks were crowded with people waiting for tables at the various restaurants.  I am so glad we got there early!

I had the opportunity to meet Catherine at the Arizona Bridal show in January.  I was so excited when she emailed me about doing engagement photos for her and Bryce!  These two are insanely cute together.  And bonus, not afraid of hiking into random washes with me!

Emillie and Ashley’s engagement session on Roosevelt Row was a dream come true.  The two of them founded a church just down the road, so they were just as familiar with the area as I was!  They even scoped out the coffee shop I suggested meeting and decided they had to have pictures there.  I had so much fun walking around downtown with them and checking out everyone’s 90’s inspired outfits!  (Apparently it was 90’s night!)

Rachael and Alec met during their freshman year of college at ASU.  They were part of a small group of friends who would frequently hang out together.  By the summer they realized they especially loved being around each other and started dating.  They have been inseparable ever since and just celebrated their 4th anniversary!  These two love all things Disney, Harry Potter, and Star Wars.  (So, you know that we hit it off immediately!)  When they are not spending time with their family or watching ASU sporting events together, they are sneaking off for trips to Disneyland, the Wizarding World, and Prescott!
