Before I dive into these Payson AZ Engagement Photos, a little backstory (because around here we love backstories!). In April I joined forces with Stasha, of Jars & Lace, to host a booth at the Gila Valley Wedding & Event Fair. As part of the booth I had a giveaway running for a free couple’s […]
This Mt Graham Waterfall Engagement Session had my heart from the very first hello on Instagram. When you get an inquiry that includes this line: “My cousin had you take their photos and they are still the pictures of my dreams!” you know you’ve connected with a golden client!! Kacey and Blaine made the drive […]
Two years ago I met up with Ethan and Emaleah in Payson, AZ for their windy and chilly Feburary engagement session. This past week I got to meet up with them again for their windy and chilly February Gila Valley maternity photos! We met up near Ft Grant Road to get a beautiful view with […]
“I had no idea Arizona could look like this!” John and Brianna’s Mogollon Rim Engagement photos happened just a few months after their move from Chicago to Flagstaff. The views, the mix of desert and forest plants, and the weather all combined for a gorgeous setting to introduce this fun couple to some of the […]
Connor and Abby’s Payson Engagement Photos had me laughing more than I have at a session in quite a while! My ab muscles hurt the next morning! These two are kind, comfortable, radiant, and so insanely cute together. They needed next to no time to warm up to the camera and just had a ball […]
I HAVE BEEN WAITING FOR TODAY TO COME FOR 6 MONTHS NOW!! Yayayayayay!! Mikaela and I had a deal. She wanted 10th Anniversary Photos, but knew the timing could be interesting with their plans to grow their family. So we decided that we’d do the photos right around their anniversary, or when she got pregnant, […]
You’ve seen this spot before, but I love that this Rim Country Engagement Session has a different vibe than the others in this location. This was my first session in winter here and it still is spectacular. We traded the green grass of summer for a gorgeous field of golden dried grasses and a wispy […]
When you are looking for both forest photos and amazing mountains views, you can’t go wrong with this spot for your Mogollon Rim Engagement Session! Austin and Stevee brought their A-game to this session and we were able to produce some of my favorite forest photos yet! AND! Just wait until you see their sweet […]
Brian and Catharine are preparing for their beautiful wedding in Mexico, and they decided to come up north from the Phoenix valley for their Rim Country Engagement Session. With the fabulous Air BnB’s, cabin rentals, and boutique hotels we have here, it’s an amazing place for a getaway weekend! We started with their dressy outfit […]
Ethan and Emaleah’s Payson AZ Engagement Session was probably the windiest session I’ve ever done here in Payson. Not quite the windiest ever, but probably top 5. And let me tell you what: these two are tough, take such good care of each other, were so patient as we worked to find the light AND […]
