Megan & Sam’s engagement session was at one of the Salt River lakes, Saguaro Lake. They wanted a location in the desert that had more than just cacti. So, what better place than one of the Salt River lakes?! They chose Saguaro Lake because they wanted a mix of desert, water, and canyons. Saguaro Lake delivered on all accounts! They chose to do a sunrise session to help beat the summer heat. (And we also beat the crowds of people headed to the lake!)
Megan and Sam met in home room in middle school! It is such a unique experience to photograph a couple who has that much history together. During their engagement session you could tell how comfortable they are with each other and how much fun they have together.
We started our session on the edge of the lake. We got some epic pictures with the Salt River bluffs in the background. And then I found a puddle that I could not pass up getting a little creative with. We then found a trail and hiked out to a point in the lake. (Ok, after we got a little lost!) And then we found a huge Saguaro we had to take a picture with. (Because, Saguaro Lake!) We ended our session back where we started. By the lake’s edge in front of some amazing trees with the morning light’s glow.
I absolutely love exploring new desert locations for photography sessions. If you are down for a desert adventure session, hit me up!
