Finally, a desert photoshoot! I loved this session because a new landscape is like a new canvas to work with and it always seems like the possibilities are endless. Obviously, I have a lot to learn out here, but I'm excited for the future! So Lorena and Chris graduated with me this past year and got engaged at the end of this summer. Not only is it extra special to work with friends, but they might have also be one of my most laid-back couples ever (which makes me more excited for their wedding. Haha.) For example, we were originally supposed to shoot at the Phoenix Botanical Gardens, but found out it was closed during the ONLY time we could shoot! Cue embarrassment when I realized a simple website check would have helped avoid the whole schedule mix-up. We ended up having to go to Papago Park nearby instead (still a solid alternative location) and L & C were totally okay with it. We got some amazing shots and it's so easy to work with people who are crazy in love (and attractive haha.) Check out some of the highlights below!
