I met this couple a few weeks ago in Phoenix at Biltmore Fashion Park to talk about their upcoming wedding, at the beginning of November. We really hit it off, and we discussed their engagement session as well at the time. We came up with several different possible locations, but in the end we decided to do their engagement photo session at their wedding venue. I haven’t shot a wedding there before, so I wanted to see the place for myself before their big day, and they were excited about it because they told me the scenery is beautiful for photography.
Well, let me tell you this… they DID NOT disappoint! Not only is it a gorgeous location, nestled into the Superstition Mountains in far east Mesa, but on the afternoon we selected, mother nature decided to bless us with an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G sky… just about every color you can imagine. And I’m NOT KIDDING YOU!
Seriously, I kept looking up in AWE. I could have just sat there and pointed my camera up to that amazing sky and mountains, reflecting the colors all afternoon long. Except for the equally gorgeous couple in front of me, LOL. (okay, now you’re getting the idea that I’m also super excited to shoot their wedding, he, he he!!!)
So, as you can see, we had a great time out there. They were the perfect photographic subjects, and we really got some amazing engagement photos complete with dramatic Arizona skies, stunning views with Arizona red rocks in the background, a perfectly manicured golf course to shoot on, some incredible natural desert shots, and we even had a native stalker trying to get in on our engagement photo shoot! Yep, the hairy guy in the last shot…
Enjoy your sneak peek Aaron and Kristen. I’ll email you soon with a link to your full gallery of images.
It was so much fun to meet with you and do your Phoenix engagement photography session! Can’t wait to do your Phoenix Arizona Wedding photography as well.
And here’s the little guy I was talking about. He and several of his friends were hanging out with us while we did our engagement photography session at Gold Canyon Ranch in East Mesa. There were literally just a few feet from us, and we didn’t even notice them there for a little while, they blend in that well to the natural desert landscape out there. Incredible! So glad I got a shot of one of them… I wonder if they’ll visit us again for the wedding photography???
