We were recently published in little black book blog
which is the fabulous blog from Style Me Pretty
If you are a bride interested in learning more about engagement sessions, definitely check it out...
For a little bit of background on this session, here is the story about how they first met:
"Merrill and I met at a 3 day Phish festival up in Maine called "IT", there were over 80,000 people there! I was living in AZ at the time and Merrill lived in Dana Point California. On the 3rd day of the festival (I had lost all my friends that I came with at this point) I was walking around by myself. Merrill had a water bottle that had lemons wedges stuck in it, so he randomly came up to me and asked me if i could get them out for him, and I did. So we started to talk for a while and we discovered that he lived a couple blocks from my mom's summer house in Dana Point. I spent all my summers at this house since I was in High School so we thought "what a small world!". We ended up keeping in touch over the phone when we got back home. Then we visited each other a couple times and started realizing that this could be more than a fling, so he decided to move out to Arizona so we could give it a try and see what happens. Five years later here we are!!! I always said I needed to marry a guy who loved music just as much as I do, so it couldn't have worked out better to meet him at a Phish concert!! We have had so many great adventures together, we really are best friends!!!"
Lauren and Merrill are a super-vibrant, fun-loving couple. So for this session, I scouted out some cool colorful urbanscapes. L&M also have an intense love and respect for nature so we wrapped the session up near Papago Park at sunset. They spent a Summer traveling in the van featured in a few of the images, so you can imagine there's a lot of love for that car.
Thanks for your great energy and fun-loving spirit!! (oh, and for that Tequila shot at Coach House ;-)
And what engagement session wouldn't be complete without a tequila shot at the Coach House?!
This was from an engagement session from a while ago which I have been meaning to post. I'm so far behind in my posting but I'm glad to have found a moment to finally get these up as they are some of my favorites. I'm so grateful to Camille and Cliff who were willing to do something a little off beat and different for their images. (Thank you!)
I loved the images from this engagement session. It's the result of a great location and an awesome, totally in-love couple, and great weather. Matt was kind enough to fly us down to Rocky Point for the weekend, allowing us to make images of the place where they first met and fell in love. We'll be photographing Summer and Matt's wedding in March at The Four Seasons Resort in Scottsdale. We can't wait!!
Engagement session in Phoenix
Monday, August 27, 2007
Sooooooo, it's been a while since my last post and I'm feeling a bit guilty. I'd like to say that it's because I'm planning a long-distance wedding, moving to a new home, expanding my studio, tediously building an entire room of IKEA furniture, along with taking care of the day-to-day activities of running a business, AND trying to sneak in a few episodes of my two favorite shows (I'm not ashamed to admit...America's Next Top Model and The Office). But, at the end of the day, there really is no excuse for my blog neglect. So to make up for it, I'm posting a ton of new shots from my latest engagement session from one of my favorite couples (I know I say that every time but it's true, every time). Matt and Christi are a testament to true love and best friends. A great model for us all ;-)
Loved this couple!
For all of you who don't live in Arizona, this is what our January looks like...
I had the wonderful opportunity to work with Beth and Andrew the other week. We had such an incredible time!
You can really feel the love between them in these images.
