Scottsdale Arizona Engagement


I was really looking forward to this Engagement shoot at Papago Park with Madie and her fiancé, Brent who are getting married this year! They were the cutest, and we shared such a fun time together! This was my first time shooting in the Scottsdale area. The forecast said rain this day, and of course I wasn't sure what to expect or what that meant. But Madie reassured me and said even rain in the desert is pretty, so that made me feel better. We ended up not getting any rain this day at all, and it was absolutely amazing in the desert. However, the next day, it looked similar to Seattle's rainy day! We really lucked out and couldn't have been in better light. 

The lovely Bride-to-be arrived with her hair and makeup done, and was looking stunning! I think we laughed most of the time. One funny thing I remember is we timed each hike to just under 5 minutes since Brent is from Ohio, and Madie's an Arizona native, who knew her stomping grounds. It was pretty hard not to laugh at how silly they were. So much cuteness and not to mention love they had for one another. You could see how much they were head over heels for one another. 

It was awesome to be able to capture this engagement shoot in the desert of Arizona. And of course the whole time I was over there like... this is just too pretty. How can it be so pretty in the winter time? Can I just come back yet?!! ... I feel like with this opportunity and experience, 2017 is going to be a good year! Weddings in Arizona are on my heart for the future!
