It was a magical morning. The sun slowly made its way into the sky and a slight mist filled the air as we wandered around well-designed garden spaces. We explored cozy green corners and listened to the sounds of nature. Birds sang while Nicolette and Mike danced around and held each other close. The serenity of the morning was made complete in the knowledge that this was only the beginning of their lives together. Nicolette and Mike wanted a peace-filled engagement session where they could connect and soak in every quiet and beautiful moment. A time to celebrate the fact they are about to promise to hold one another forever.
The Royal Palms Resort and Spa in Phoenix was just the place for that. A true oasis in the desert, this lush venue was the perfect backdrop for them to be together and document this incredible season of their lives. We had the best time taking in the scenery and meandering around the resort as the sun continued to rise. But getting to witness them revel in the sweetness of their love was the most beautiful thing of all! Nothing could compare!
Sunrise may just be one of my favorite times to shoot! Not only is this type of lighting my favorite to work with, but there is so much beauty everywhere you look. If you’re looking to capture an engagement session, senior portraits, or another type of event, do not hesitate to reach out to me! I’ve got some slots available this spring and summer!
