Let me tell you, I absolutely enjoyed capturing Liz and Matt’s desert engagement session at South Mountain in Phoenix, Arizona. The stunning backdrop combined with Liz and Matt’s elegant style made for some seriously timeless pictures! From the moment we started, I was in love by their effortless chemistry for each other and their amazing energy. Their unique personalities shone through in every shot, from the way they held hands to the infectious smiles on their faces. Also, the golden hour sunlight created an absolutely beautiful glow over the entire desert, making every detail and all the warm colors pop in the photos. To make this session EVEN better, I was blown away by Liz’s handmade engagement ring, which added a special touch of personalization to the shoot! Overall, I had a blast working with such a fun couple and capturing their love through elegant and timeless photos.
Liz and Matt’s engagement session was full of joy and love, but nothing caught my attention quite like the ring on Liz’s finger. It was STUNNING! When I asked them about it, they told me that they had actually made the ring together, which left me amazed! The ring was seriously so special and had so much sentimental value. Liz’s mother had given them small diamonds from her own ring, and the gold band itself was actually Liz’s grandmother’s ring! The way they had incorporated these elements into the design was both elegant and meaningful, creating a truly timeless look. The love and history wrapped up in her ring touched me so much. It added an extra layer of emotion to their engagement session and made the photos even more special! I loved being able to capture such a unique and heartfelt aspect of their relationship.
The desert landscape at South Mountain in Phoenix was breathtaking, with cacti stretching all over the place and the warm golden light casting a beautiful shine over everything. Although the weather was a bit chilly, we still had a blast capturing gorgeous timeless photos for the engagement shoot. But it was Liz and Matt themselves who really stole the show — they were SO MUCH FUN to work with! Their easy-going personalities and contagious laughter made the shoot seriously such a blast. I couldn’t help but smile with them as they giggled together, completely head over heels for each other. It was clear that they were having the time of their lives, and I felt honored to capture their special moments in an absolutely stunning setting! Working with Liz and Matt was a dream come true, and I’m so grateful that I got to experience an exciting moment of their lives.
