On October 31st, 2012, Joe and Laura tied the knot. One week later, I had fun capturing the newlyweds in the Arizona desert.
I have known Laura and her three sisters since childhood. When she told me she was up for a desert landscape shoot, I went on the hunt for just the right spot. As I told Laura, this particular spot was not for city girls. Realizing Laura was raised in an AZ cowgirl culture, I was confident this location would be a good fit for her. The AZ desert has more to offer than just barren desert and saguaros. If you find the right spots, you get pretty desert oasis with right amount of desert landscape and a bit of wild green mixed in.
My parents grew up in the High Desert of California. My dad roamed the desert landscape all his life. When he moved to AZ when I was 4, he quickly began his AZ explorations. As a result, I have seen so much of what AZ has to offer as we spent so much time in my growing up years out on adventures (and they were adventures – my Dad is truly wild at heart). All that to say, I LOVE IT when clients are up for a bit of adventure with me. A bit of walking and boot requirements are a small price to pay for some of these sweet spots (if you ask me).
Congratulations Joe and Laura and thank you for allowing me to capture this wonderful time in your lives! It was so good to see you and the boys again. Send my love and thanks on to Cody and Cameron for all their help. Cody went way above the call of duty didn’t he? LOL.
