Amber + Kevin’s South Phoenix Engagement Session

Happy is the man who finds a true friend, and far happier is he who finds that true friend in his wife – Franz Shubert

I first met Amber almost two years ago when I was planning my own wedding and looking for a hairstylist that would come on location for my wedding day. Since  then she has become my own hairstylist, my hiking buddy, she had styled hair for three of my boudoir marathons, we’ve worked on a styled shoot together, and she’s become a great friend. Now that it’s time for her own wedding, I’m beyond flattered that she has chosen me as her wedding photographer as I know she works with many many different wedding photographers.

I’ve heard so much about Kevin but had only met him in passing once before, meeting him now was like meeting the “missing piece.” It all came together for me and I even said it out loud, “I get it now!” Amber and Kevin are very much in sync and very much in love. They have been together since high school and have been there for each other through all of life’s ups and downs. While they have the close bond of a couple that has been together through time, they also have an affection and adoration for each other as if they just met. It was refreshing to spend a few hours with them and celebrate their engagement. phoenix engagement session photographed by Lisa d. Photography phoenix engagement session photographed by Lisa d.

Originally we had planned to spend the afternoon in Flagstaff, AZ.  However due to weather conditions we had to plan an alternative site locally. Amber still desired the city feel but wanted to also have the contrast of nature and mountains.  We settled for our session to begin in downtown Phoenix and then drive down Central to Rio Salado Habitat Restoration.  The light was gorgeous and the setting was perfection.phoenix engagement session photographed by Lisa d.

Kevin proposed to Amber on a mountain hike and so it seemed only appropriate to finish off the session at sunset atop a mountain.phoenix engagement session photographed by Lisa d.

These two high school sweethearts are tying the knot at the Whispering Tree Ranch in Laveen, AZ next month.  Very excited to be a part of their special day.
