Macie and Patrick wanted to get their engagement session done before their wedding.  Which was coming up fast!  I am talking, we booked their session within a week of their wedding.  Like, a few days before they flew to Hawaii for the wedding!  Macie really wanted to have engagement photos while they were still engaged!  We had a blast exploring Anthem Park together for their session.  Macie had a must have photograph on her list.  She wanted to recreate a photograph she had of her grandparents!  So, of course we recreated it for them.

I was so excited when Carrie contacted me about photographing her wedding.  Why?  Because I photographed her sister’s wedding!  Carrie and Brandon wanted to have their engagement session at Sahuaro Ranch, one of my absolute fav spots.  And they wanted to bring a few of their dog pack along.  (Seriously, they have so many furry friends!  But they figured two was enough to handle for the session.)  I suggesting bringing a dog wrangler to help with the pups, and she brought her sister!  It was so nice to get to see them again before the wedding this fall!  Carrie and Brandon kept their more casual outfits on for pictures with the pups.  Then we changed into their more formal outfits for the rest of their session, where we explored this historic buildings and the ever green orange groves.

Jennifer and Doug got married in her father’s backyard.  So, they thought it would be the perfect place to do their engagement session!  When Jennifer told me their idea, I was so excited.  Her dad has a gorgeous and lush backyard.  There was literally green everywhere you looked!  He also had an amazing waterfall that flowed into a Koi Pond.  And a gazebo that Doug proposed to Jennifer under!

Paige and Edward’s engagement session was in one of my fav spots, the White Tanks!  You would never guess that this truly dream session happened in JUNE!  That’s right, June in the desert.  It doesn’t get that much more Arizona than that!  Paige wore a stunning red lace dress that looked amazing with the summer sun.  We finished their engagement session as the sun set behind the mountains.

Dee and Monica wanted a green backdrop for their engagement session.  I immediately thought of Anthem Park.  They loved the idea, so we booked their session for June (just before their July elopement!).  On the way there, we had to drive through clouds of smoke from the summer wildfires.  It was so eerie!  Once we got to the park, everything looked totally normal.  Thankfully!  Except for one thing.  All that smoke, it gave us a wicked sunset!  (Check the last image to see the insane sunset!)

Michelle and Aimen wanted to have their engagement session at the Mesa Arts Center, because they almost got married there!  Seriously!  If it weren’t for covid restrictions when they were planning their wedding, this would have been their wedding venue.  So, it felt the the right place to do their engagement session.  You would have no idea from these photographs, but it was a very hot and also very cloudy day June day.  We even got sprinkled on a little bit!  But between the three of us, we still managed to make pure magic!  And to celebrate, we grabbed some ice cream at a local ice cream shop down the street.  (Oh, and we took some photos there too!)

Sarah and Spencer had their first date at the Angles Trumpet in the Roosevelt Row District.  They continued to go on dates at Angles Trumpet and fell in love with the area.  So, they knew they wanted to have their engagement session at Roosevelt Row.  And, that’s exactly how they found me!  We met at my fav coffee shop downtown, Jobot, and walked around the Arts District stopping for photographs as we went.  We stopped by some of my favorite murals.  And, as always, found some new amazing murals too!

Christie and Nelson came into Phoenix for the holidays and to get married!  So, we snuck in their engagement session just days before their actual wedding day.  Being from Phoenix, Christie had always loved the red buttes of Papago Park.  So, we had to have their engagement session there so they could bring the desert […]

When I started talking with Laura and Matt about their engagement session, they mentioned The Riparian Preserve in Gilbert.  I had never been there before, but had always wanted to check it out.  Then, when they mentioned they wanted to bring their pup along, I was even more excited!

One stereotype of Millennials I can get on board with is how much we love our pets.  They are a part of our family.  We love spending time with them and include them in our hikes, cafe dates, and trips to our parent’s houses.  So, it totally makes sense that we want to include them in our engagement photos too!  I personally love when I get to meet my couple’s pups and include them in our session.  Here are the tips I give my couples when they want to include doggo in their engagement photos.
