Mount Lemmon Engagement Session | Mark & Alexia

These two met at their best friends wedding - she was a bridesmaid and he was a groomsman. I love it when love brings love together!

The first time I got to talk with them on the phone they were literally the SWEETEST ever and couldn't stop talking about how excited they were to work with me and that they had looked at so many other photographers and I was the first that stood out that they both loved and they just had to have ME. THEN they also told me they were down to go ANYWHERE I wanted and they'd hike or drive wherever needed to get the best shots and I was like OKAY you're my dream clients hellooooo.

We decided on Mount Lemmon in Tucson Arizona for their engagement session, and it seriously couldn't have been more perfect. Their outfits, the weather, the SUNSET, the location, their connection... it was just my personal photographer dream day.

They are getting married NEXT week and I'm so excited to take their bridals and wedding day portraits in a few days!!! Also.... sorrynotsorry for sharing a million photos I just love them and these too so freakin much!

Joshua Tree Anniversary Session | Paul & Monica

Paul & Monica reached out to me to book a ten year anniversary adventurous session in Joshua Tree while they were vacationing there from Canada and I was so excited to work with them before I even knew anything about them. We met up in Joshua Tree (where it was insanely windy and COLD you guys, seriously SO COLD) and as we got started I casually asked them how they met - and was definitely not expecting their answer. Hands down the best "how we met story" I've heard yet... it's so good I wanted to let Monica tell you in her own words!

"When I finished university I knew that going directly into my career wasn't the right fit, so I planned an 18 month adventure in Asia. Country hopping, climbing Everest, and then teaching English in Taiwan in 12 months was my plan. I grew up in a tiny town of 600 people in Saskatchewan, Canada and wanted to start seeing the world. It was my first time overseas and I planned to do it alone. Paul was the opposite. He grew up in London, England - a city of 18 million people and was an avid traveler and always planning his next trip. He planned a trip to Asia with 6 friends.

On my 7th day in Thailand I sat on the side of Khao San Road waiting to board a bus. I saw this group of friends laughing and joking and for a moment I thought how amazing is that to have a group of friends to adventure with. Moments later I boarded a 14 hours bus trip and as I waited to depart this guy dropped into the seat next to me and practically sat on me. He turned and apologized in an English accent and introduced himself. Little did I know that moment would change the rest of my life. We spent most of the next 14 hours chatting and when the bus trip finished he asked me to come hang with his friends. We booked huts on the beach next to each other that night and the next day while playing Frisbee in the ocean he asked me to go to New Zealand with him and two of his travel mates. I didn't say yes that moment but I spent the next 6 days travelling around with this guy as friends and I couldn't shake the idea of abandoning my plans to go with them and so I said yes. Two weeks after meeting we flew to Auckland and we started dating shortly after that. 

After 10 weeks of knowing him and only 5 weeks of that time being together in the same country, I booked a flight to London and moved in with him. I never considered myself a spontaneous person until he came into my life and gave me a reason to be. One year later, we moved from London to Calgary, Canada and we got married in 2008. Our shoot we our 10 year anniversary gift to each other and a celebration of our marriage."

WHAT????? So freaking cute. Here's a couple of my favorites from our session together!

Sand Dunes Adventurous Session | Gabby & Gary

Literally never loved a location more. The bright light, simple background and unique textures of the sand dunes seriously fulfilled all my photography dreams. Gabby and Gary were the best ever for this location and we seriously had so much fun getting sand blasted for every shot. I cried literal tears in the making of some of these (mainly because the was so much sand and wind in my eyes, but also because they are the cutest!)
