Here is a peek at David and Mackenzie’s romantic Papago Park Engagement session in Phoenix Arizona.  They both grew up in Phoenix and it’s where they met and fell in love.  Their careers took them across the country together but what better place to have their wedding and engagement photos than in the city where they met.  Papago Park holds a special place in Mackenzie’s hart and she told us stories of going there when she was younger.  Its a beautiful and magical place at sunset and we are just dying over their amazing engagement session.  Take a look!

This destination snow engagement shoot for R+J has us yearning for another winter storm.  These two love birds recently got engaged while they were on a trip in Australia, and if that isn’t romantic I don’t know what is.  These avid travelers wanted a fun and unique engagement shoot to fit their personalities and with an approaching winter storm we figured the local mountains with fresh snow would be a great idea for their engagement photos.  We commandeered ourselves a little cabin for the weekend and woke up on a Saturday morning to a true winter wonderland, with the snow shimmering and sparkling in the sun.  When the light was just right we headed out past the town of Prescott and up into the hills.  We found a campground closed for winter with fields of untouched snow and groves of spectacular forest just perfect for engagement photos.  R and J were armed with hot chocolate, blankets and a vintage sled while we armed ourselves with cameras.  Off into the snow we went.

Here’s a look at Ashley and Marco’s wonderful  Aldredge House wedding reception.  Ashley and Marco fell in love with this old historic house in Dallas Texas for their reception and we can completely understand why.  The house is full of beautiful old furniture and decor, and don’t get me started on the spiral stair case.  The reception was originally set to be held outside under the market lights in the back yard.  Rain early in the day got the staff on the move and they were able to set up the entire wedding reception indoors and it turned out amazing.  Ashley and Marco made their grand entrance down the spiral staircase and jumped right into a night of fun and dancing.

It was so much fun having the opportunity be a part of Ashley and Marco’s Nasher Sculpture Center wedding photos.  They had their wedding ceremony at the Watermark Community Church in Dallas Texas and when the I Do’s were said and Ashley and Marco were cheered down the aisle they hopped into a limo with their wedding party and headed to the Nasher for some fun portraits.  The sculpture garden is nestled in the heart of down town Dallas, so it was a bit of a commute but wedding party celebrated the 30 minute drive to the museum with music and champaign.  The Nasher is beautiful little gem of a museum and well worth the detour.  We had so much fun photographing the wedding party amongst all of the amazing sculptures and they certainly enjoyed letting their personalities come out for some of the photos.  The garden was a wonderful place to take wedding portraits and would be a phenomenal spot for an out door wedding.  We can’t wait for a return visit.
