I'm Amber, a Harry Potter obsessed wedding and brand photographer for those who are anything but ordinary based in Phoenix, Arizona.
When I don't have a camera in my hand, you can find me hiking with my husband, snuggling pups, or planning my next Disney trip.
Jessica and Kirk fell in love with The Nile during a visit to Arizona. When they mentioned it to me as a potential spot for their engagement session, I was super excited. I spend many nights in the basement of the Nile with my husband attending concerts. Many of which, his band played. So, this is a super sentimental spot for me. Adding sprinkles to this already amazing Sunday, they just updated the front of the coffee shop! It is now super cute and was giving me some Paris bistro vibes. (Full disclosure, I have never been to Paris…)
For Caitlin and Ryan’s engagement session, we headed to one of my favorite spots, Roosevelt Row. We met up at Jobot where Ryan was able to sneak in a quick drink before we started their session. The Palo Verde trees were in full bloom, so I could not resist starting our session there. Then we continued to explore the arts district stopping at any art murals or industrial architecture that caught our eye. We ended our session at one of my favorite greenery walls!
Heather and Nick love exploring new restaurants and coffee shops. So, when I suggested Roosevelt Row as a possible spot for their engagement session, they went to explore downtown Phoenix. They scoped out a few great new spots for their session. We started at this cool bar Bitter and Twisted cocktail parlor. After a quick drink, we walked over to an awesome staircase near The Arrogant Butcher. Then we jumped in the car to head over to Jobot!
Jillian and Jospeh hit the Spring jackpot for their engagement session at Thunderbird Mountain. The Palo Verde trees where crazy in bloom, much like these two are crazy in love! This was their first time to Thunderbird Park. This is a fav hiking spot of mine, so it was a blast showing them around to all my secret photo spots! We started our session in the blooming Palo Verdes and then found our way into a wash. Once the sun started to set a bit more, we hiked up the mountain for some amazing desert views.
Grace and Trevor are one of the winners of my engagement session giveaway! They won an engagement session at one of my favorite new locations: The White Tanks. They are the first couple I have gotten to photograph in this location, and I know they will not be the last! I absolutely love the views of the desert and the mountain range behind them. It is a combo that simple cannot be beat. And all of my fellow West Siders will be glad to know that the Superstitions is not the only spot for epic desert views.
Misty and Chris are fellow ‘West Siders’. So, it was an easy decision to have their engagement session at Sahuaro Ranch. This historic ranch is one of my favorite spots on the West side of Phoenix. The vintage ranch buildings with the amazing red brick. The orange groves that are always green all year long. And the peacocks and ranch cats that like to make an appearance in photos every now and then. There truly is a little something for everyone.
Marisa and Spencer won an engagement session giveaway with the Air Stream Photo Booth from The Event Co! I was beyond excited to collaborate with the Air Stream after seeing them at the Arizona Bridal Show. This Photo Booth is ridiculously cool. It has the vintage, reflective silver outside with a “photos” light sign on top. And the interior has been totally re-done with warm wood tones and vintage carpets, complete with trendy pillows galore. We decided to park this bad boy in the desert setting of Thunderbird Mountain.
Christi and Nate were one of my engagement session winners! We originally planned to have a fun engagement session in the snow, but Arizona had other plans. The first weekend we had scheduled, it was going to be 40 mph winds and rain! What?! We were able to reschedule, but not until after the snow had melted. So, we decided to head to Buffalo Park so we could at least get some amazing photos with Humphreys Peak covered in snow as the backdrop. We had a blast exploring Buffalo Park together. The pine trees were so green from all the winter snow and rain we had this year. And we still got those winter feels with the snow covered peaks!
Breanne & Caleb chose Papago Park for their engagement session because Breanne wanted to soak up as much of the desert as she could before heading home to Oregon. Breanne is from Arizona and moved to Oregon with Caleb. So, we snuck in their engagement session just a few days before the wedding! Because of all the winter rains we had, the desert was so green! We had a blast exploring the area around Hole in the Rock at Papago Park. We made sure to get some pictures with all the gorgeous red rock, a huge saguaro, and the creosote bush.
Michelle and Daniel chose a location I have never been to before for their engagement session: The Mesa Arts Center. I had been in the area before (attending many a concerts at The Nile a block away), but never the arts center. After some heavy creeping the location on Google, I was so excited! They were drawn to the arts center because of its more modern look. I loved the industrial concrete walls that were sprinkled with pops of color and greenery. It was the best of both worlds!
