Papago Park Engagement Photography: Mike + Jessica

Ahh the romance! We met these two for the first time in person at their engagement shoot, and the immediate confirmation we had that they were our dream couple was written all over our faces. From their outfits, to their expectations, to their style, to their romance, to their desire to connect with us in a deeper way made our session with them absolute perfection! We only had an hour to shoot before they had to head to the airport and fly back home, but we made quick work of it and laughed along the way. We seriously adore these two…

We cannot WAIT to capture Mike + Jessica’s gorgeous wedding this coming spring with our dear friend Kayla from Some Like It Classic! It’s going to be amazing!! -A&E

Fiesta Inspired Wedding Photography: Fernando + Kristen

This beautiful wedding marks the start of our Fall 2016 wedding season! We have 15 beautiful and incredibly diverse weddings this fall and we could not be more grateful for each and every one of them. What we love most about the type of clients that we seem to attract is that they are all so different (yet so amazing!) and we have the privilege of photographing so many different styles and so many different colors! It’s seriously a photographer’s dream!

When I sat down with Kristen for the first time, I immediately LOVED her wedding vision. She had a deep desire to incorporate her culture and the way she was raised while also really valuing Fernando’s culture and making sure that his family felt valued and right at home at the wedding. She dreamed of her wedding being a diverse party that brought both cultures together in perfect harmony- and that is exactly what she achieved. Andrew and I were amazed by all the little touches throughout the day including Kristen memorizing her wedding vows in spanish and really making it a point to connect with everyone there. Both Fer and Kristen are extremely family oriented and we LOVED witnessing how close they were to their families and how much love resonated from the entire group… ALL. NIGHT. LONG. I can say again and again that most weddings truly represent a couple… but this wedding BY FAR… every aspect of it… truly represented exactly who Fernando and Kristen are as individuals and as a couple. It was breathtaking to see.

We felt so honored to start our season watching these two become one and even more honored to witness such a beautiful, tradition-filled, sacred day. We could not love this couple any more. Congratulations F + K!!!! -A&EJ

Scottsdale Engagement Photography: Mark + Michele

When two people are as crazy about each other as these love birds, photographing their relationship is such a joy and an honor!  I would even say it feels more like capturing a Jane Austin novel than an actual, modern day romance :)  From the moment we began this journey with Mark and Michele, we knew they had something special.  Michele is one of the most endearing people on this planet; her gentle nature and bubbly laughter is evidence of her affection for Mark.  She’s smitten!  And Mark knows that he’s the lucky one to have won the heart of Michele.  Together they have created a thing of beauty; something to admire and to look forward to.  Mark and Michele, we are so excited for February and cannot wait for your wedding to arrive!  And we are also beyond excited to work with our friends at Sip and Twirl Events again to create a magical and memorable event for all!  -A

Scottsdale Engagement Photography: Bo + Krystle

I am so excited to be posting this shoot today! Not just because this couple is gorgeous or because we are SO excited for their wedding this December with Imoni Events (even though we are!), but because these two are so much FUN! We love their bold style, the way they giggle when they are together, and above all else- their CONFIDENCE.

When I first chatted with Krystle on the phone, her confidence was the first thing I noticed about her. She is joyful and secure in who she is and that is something that I highly respect. Everyone loves to be around Bo and Krystle as they bring in so much LIFE and LAUGHTER, and we can only imagine what their amazing wedding is going to be like! I am sure full of such amazing people… we cannot wait to witness and document it all!

For now, enjoy this spunky shoot and this adorable couple! :) -EJ


Mogollon Rim Engagement Photography: Tyler + Jenna

I don’t know what to say about this incredible engagement session but WOW! When Andrew and I were newly married AND newly pregnant with our first, we spent our first anniversary in Payson and visited the Mogollon Rim. I fell in love with the Rim that day as Andrew captured me with our precious little baby growing in my belly. For years it was a sacred place for us. A place that we went to as often as we could to feel the breeze in our hair and the sun on our faces. To look out at the amazing view and to feel such peace and contentment.

When Tyler and Jenna wanted something different for their engagement session, I immediately thought of the Rim. I had been dying to take other people there and show them our sacred place. I wanted to watch their joy as they looked out over the valley, and to photograph their hair blowing in the wind. Andrew and I were SO excited when they agreed, and the session was even more amazing than I could have imagined. We LOVE this place, we LOVE this couple. It was perfect!

Just a few more weeks until these lovebirds tie the knot and we cannot wait to see all the magic that our dear friend Andrea Leslie Weddings has planned for their day! Enjoy! -EJ
