I grew up in Tempe, Arizona and so it was a dream to return and shoot in one of my favorite places…. the Arizona desert. While I was there I had a chance to visit with my best friend who reminded me of the fact that I used to go for 2+ hour runs in the desert. I still love the desert. The sunrises are like nowhere else and the smell of the desert flowers is intoxicating. I also love the muted palette of the ground, bushes and cacti. That’s why this was the only location for McKenna and Benjamin’s wedding portrait session. We chose the Usery Pass Nature Center in Mesa and it is a simply stunning backdrop for telling their love story.
Congratulations McKenna and Benjamin! You have to be the sweetest couple I’ve ever met. I adored working with you and wish you years and years of blissful marriage!!
