Brent and Christina’s Desert Botanical Garden engagement session was a gorgeous evening in my favorite place. I love how Brent and Christina laugh and have fun together. I can’t wait for their wedding later in the year.

The Desert Botanical Garden with Jessica and David was picture perfect for this lovely couple’s engagement session. It was a hot Arizona spring evening with a touch of wildflowers still in bloom. Thanks to David and Jessica for be so sweet to work with. I can’t wait for the wedding later this year!

Alyssa and Brandon’s Desert Botanical Garden portrait session

I first met Alyssa and Brandon in 2016 when I photographed their engagement session. We had a fun time photographing in the beautiful Phoenix desert ahead of their Midwest wedding. They got married out of state but contacted me about a post-wedding portrait session back here in Arizona and I jumped at the chance. Although I was not at the wedding it was fun to see Alyssa and Brandon dressed up again, this time for pictures at the Desert Botanical Garden. A perfect blue sky day and wildflowers in bloom made a gorgeous setting. Congratulations (again) to Alyssa and Brandon.

Emma and Sean’s Desert Botanical Garden engagement session

Emma and Sean are the kind of couple that are natural in front of the camera. Playful and loving together it was fun to get a small glimpse into their relationship before their wedding next year. I photographed their engagement session at the Desert Botanical Garden among the usual desert beauty of the garden and unusual art of of Japanese American artist Jun Kaneko. If you haven’t seen the current art exhibit I recommend it. The sculptures are colorful, bold and whimsical.

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!
