To kick off January, I wanted to shoot something fun and creative that was my own concept. I had envisioned a dusty blue flowy, off the shoulder gown with pastel flowers and bohemian hair. I recruited Andrew (@TregotheDJ on Insta & the best DJ, freal.) and his amazing wife Jessi to model for me. Shortly after, Jackie from Wild One Events joined in to style a little basket for us. Bella Bridesmaids was in for the dress and my HUMA go-to, Morgan, joined in for Hair & Makeup. I loved that this shoot came together organically with a few good “friendors” wanting to create some pretty for their January! Enjoy the photos, friends and click here for a BTS of Morgan doing her thang and giving some sound advice for brides-to-be!

Six years ago Meghan and Will were in the same prom group. Years later after they lost touch, Meghan added Will on Facebook and they met up for some Gelato at San Tan mall. Will claims he didn’t remember Meghan from Prom but I suspect he was just trying to play it cool. Afterall, Meghan is gorgeous and sweet and completely unforgettable. These two sweeties got engaged on a very crowded Manhattan Beach and are now planning their wedding for next September and I just can’t wait.

For their engagement session, we headed out to Coon Bluff at the Salt River and the two were naturals in front of the camera. This location has been one of my favorites over the last year and Meghan and Will added perfectly to the scene!

Rose and Alex are so wonderfully connected that this engagement session was a breeze. They moved so naturally together and were so in love. I cannot wait for their wedding next winter! If you can believe it, this shoot took place minutes before a giant 2 day storm hit Phoenix. By the time I got home, it was raining cats and dogs and so windy I could hardly see. Thankfully this roll of the dice in dicey weather paid off – this engagement session is all on film and one of my favorites to date! Also, check out that ring … I just can’t. So gorg!
