Engagement

Bisbee | Tucson Wedding and Portrait Photographer | Diljot and Phil

It is such an honor to shoot this session with one of my favorite Tucson photographer, Pri Matei (Priscila Matei Photography), in Bisbee this weekend.  The airbnb that Pri has found for this session was nothing short of amazing with the perfect light and vitange vibe throughout. It is truly a hidden gem. Bisbee is such an amazing town full of artisans and the drive there is so peaceful.  Beautiful desert scenery stretches beyond the eyes can see.

Diljot and Phil are so amazing to work with. They are so much in love so photographing them being just that was a breeze. Thank you guys for driving all the way to Bisbee and for trusting in our vision. 

Inspirations are everywhere but I love to shoot with my heart instead of my eyes. Music is definitely one of my go to for inspiration and lately I've been loving this song from Bon Jovi. It seriously has been on repeat and reminds me of that first love. The kind that takes you back to High School or even college for some of us. The kind that stays with us after decades. As we aged and grow older, that love lingers... and if we're one of the lucky ones, that love will linger in our hearts forever.  

Tucson Wedding Photographer | Lacey and Adam Engagement Session

I am absolutely so thrilled to share this engagement session with you guys. Lacey and Adam flew all the way from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Tucson for their session. They are so sweet and super chill, and they have the sweetest southern accent. I mean it was the sweetest!!!! I can listen to them talk all day. It was such a dream that they have chosen me to photograph this session.  

Here are a few favorites from our session. Swoon!! 

Tucson Wedding Photographer | Chris and Jancy Engagement Session

Friends, I am so stoked to share this engagement session with you.  The beautiful sunset sky adds just the perfect amount of mood to this session. It feels so romantic, doesn't it? My couple, Chris and Jancy, flew all the way from Shanghai, China, to shoot their engagement session with me here in the desert of Tucson. Chris is a UofA alumni and loves the desert. The desert loves him back by way of jumping cactus clinging on to his wool sweater ;).  

Jancy looks so gorgeous amongst the majestic landscape in the backless ivory dress. They are so easygoing, super sweet, and fun to work with. I am so in love with their love [insert Kenny G. Forever In Love...].

Gates Pass | Tucson Wedding Photographer

This was such a beautiful surprise proposal. A huge congratulations to Heidi and Miguel. I'm so happy to be a part of your special day! 

Miguel planed everything from the location to details of the ring. But let's talk about the ring for a second. It is custom made by his aunt, Lisa McConnell, https://www.lisamcconnell.com/. The center stone is a beautiful sapphire with 2 diamond side stones. So perfect. 

We drove to Gates Pass to scout out the area the day before. We (well... mostly Miguel) checked out every nook of Gates Pass, decided on the time, and narrowed it down to this beautiful spot at sunrise.  He got down on one knee. It was so sweet. They are both really sweet, actually.  

A special shoutout to my 2nd shooter, Andi O'bert, for getting up way before sunrise and capturing this sweet proposal from the opposite side of me.

White Sands National Monument, NM | TJ and Kacie Engagement Session

[Tucson Wedding and Elopement Photographer]

My 2nd blog at my new home! Wooh!!! Been saving it for the best location ;)

Having lived in southern AZ almost my entire life, I'm sad to say that I have never visited the White Sands National Monument in NM. But I have always wanted to. Really really wanted to. After all, it's only 4 hours from Tucson. So when one of my best photographer friend got engaged, I had to drag him and his gorgeous fiancé to NM for a session. I'm so happy that they were all in, driving up and staying in NM. We definitely made some magic together! Congratulations you guys!!! Love you both so much :)
