TREASURED HEIRLOOMS

ONE LOVE STORY

TWO SOULS

They flew to AZ to visit some friends so we figured that was the perfect time to capture some engagement photos. We shot them in Tucson at Saguaro National Park. If you’ve never been get your booty out there; it’s one of the most stunning parks AZ has to offer. It’s a dream location for golden hour with full 360° views.

I photographed all the details while Brooke got ready with her gals, popping champagne, and munching on her favorite food, fried chicken. Soon it was time for the festivities to begin. Brooke’s dress was stunning; so simple with drop satin sleeves and adorable white pumps, while Ryan went full 3-piece suit on us. He looked absolutely dashing.

Elopements are a special kind of magic. Short, sweet, intimate, and deserving of a beautiful backdrop. Something worthy of the raw, gorgeous moments you’re sharing with your partner. Natural beauty to match the most natural thing of all, love.

Shooting at the Grand Canyon with these two was such a dream. I honestly can’t believe how perfect they look, as if painted onto the backdrop. The breeze would pick up Alana’s veil while Brian was gazing at her lovingly; I was squealing inside.

I gotta say, that hike was more challenging than I was anticipating. Some huffing and puffing is good for the soul right? But not to worry, it was all worth it in the end. I’m so so happy with the final photos, and so excited to see one of my photos printed and hung in their new home.

“Don’t be offended, but I definitely won’t remember your name,” were Katie’s first words to Rafe when they met at a pool party their first week of PA school. Welp, in Rafe’s words “turns out she did.”

I thought the engagement session was so perfectly, them. Cozy, fashionable, and romantic. We shot at Buffalo Park in Flagstaff with champagne, a woven blanket, and lots of love in tow. There are so many in-between moments I managed to photograph from this session that have so much heart. These two melt my heart!

Tan and I had snagged an airbnb in Joshua Tree that peaked our interest. “Casa de la Muxer” described a 1940s adobe style home with vintage details so naturally I was pumped. I thought it could be a good location for an engagement session that I had booked with some pals who were going to crash with us, and I was right.

Another one of my shoots from being back home in Minneapolis, working with Brie and Tyler was an absolute dream. It was the most serene, elegant, and charming location for these photos. Their outfits blended with the backdrop as if a painting. I could’ve pulled them straight out of a Jane Austen novel. It was such a lovely day.

Jordan said later that his favorite part of the day was reading letters to each other before the ceremony. They decided against a first look and instead read letters to one another while back to back with a door between them. They could hold hands and talk to each other but no looking! That is when Jordan remembers feeling the first rush of emotions for the day, it was a special moment.
