Tristan and Pat’s funny & romantic Phoenix engagement session

Tristan and Pat crack me up. Their engagement session was funny and romantic and often just plain silly. In addition to some outfit changes Tristan and Pat came fully prepared to “Shave the Date.” Shaving cream, razors and all. Pat even grew a mustache to shave for the occasion. The photos are witty and sweet and I hope they reflect how much fun Tristan and Pat have together. I am really excited about their wedding this spring, it is going to be outside the box and I can’t wait to be there to capture it for them!

Tatiana and Luis’ downtown Phoenix engagement session


No two downtown Phoenix engagement sessions are ever the same with so many different places to explore. I love to search out color and texture as backdrops for my photographs. Tatiana and Luis are such a sweet and easy going couple. They both have wonderful smiles that light up the pictures.

Siobhan and Dustin’s Phoenix, Arizona engagement

I am really thankful that I listened to Siobhan and Dustin and did not reschedule their engagement session. The morning and early afternoon were plagued with thick gray clouds and rain throughout the valley. As our scheduled shoot time got closer it stopped raining so after some texts and phone calls we decided to go for it and hoped for the best. It turned out to be a beautiful evening as the sun peeked out from behind the clouds. We started at the Desert Botanical Garden where Siobhan and Dustin will be getting married in the spring.  We then headed to downtown Phoenix for some more grungy urban shots. Earlier in the week I stumbled upon the Valley of the Sunflowers along 6th Street in Phoenix so I was excited to take Siobhan and Dustin there. Valley of the Sunflowers transformed a 2 acre vacant lot into a field of sunflowers- which happens to be my favorite type of flower.

Curtis and Shelina’s urban engagement shoot- Phoenix, Arizona

Downtown Phoenix was the funky and urban backdrop for Curtis and Shelina’s engagement pictures. I love all the color and texture that you can find around Phoenix. I have had my eye on a specific parking garage with a great rooftop view so I was very excited to take some pictures up there as the sunset hit the surrounding buildings and reflected a warm glow. Shelina and Curtis are such a sweet and kind couple, I can’t wait for their wedding next year!
