Miss Arizona’s Outstanding Teen Contestant- Mimi Hymel

Desert Botanical Garden photography portrait session

I had a pleasure of photographing a portrait session for Mimi, Miss Surprise Outstanding Teen, before the statewide Miss Arizona Outstanding Teen competition. She wanted to incorporate the Arizona flag and it’s bold colors in the gorgeous desert setting at the Desert Botanical Garden. I simply loved her rich green ball gown in the lush herb garden and pale blue gown among the organ pipe cactus. At one point Mimi was in her blue gown when a little boy walked by along the trail, as he passed and he said “hello” to Cinderella. I have to agree she certainly looked like Cinderella at that moment!

Danielle and Erik’s Desert Botanical Garden in bloom wedding

Desert Botanical Garden Phoenix photographer

The Desert Botanical Garden was in bloom and the yellow of the Palo Verde trees made the garden even that much more breathtaking for Danielle and Erik’s wedding. Cat lovers, Erik was showing his love with cats both on his bow tie as well as kitty cuff links. My favorite moment while Danielle was getting ready was how emotional her niece got seeing Danielle put on her veil! The ceremony, officiated by Danielle’s sister and Erik’s brother was personal and gorgeous under a canopy of yellow. The party was so much fun with two pianos for live music! Congratulations Danielle and Erik!

Amber and Josh’s Desert Botanical Garden engagement session

Desert Botanical Garden engagement session pictures

I have known Amber for years and we have talked about doing a portrait session for forever so I can’t tell you how thrilled I was to finally get her and her fiancé in front of my camera! Amber knows the Desert Botanical Garden very well and we had fun exploring some of her (and my) favorite spots. It was also wonderful to meet Josh! A perfect night and sunset didn’t hurt either. Congratulations on your engagement Amber and Josh.

I love a cool cloudy day in Arizona and for Brittany and Nick’s engagement session that is just what we got. The session was a mix of modern scenery and desert serenity. After such a fun afternoon with this couple I can’t wait for their wedding next month.
