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.
Their meet-cute was by way of a set-up. Brooke and Ryan’s parents were good friends and after a quick introduction at a pizza place, they fell in love. Brooke and Ryan are both so charismatic and just such a joy to be around.
“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.”
Their proposal story gives me giggly, fuzzy feelings inside. I had the best time capturing their engagement photos. I feel as though their chemistry just jumps off these images at you; contagious love. I can’t wait for the big day ya’ll, it’s going to be pure magic.
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.
