Downtown Scottsdale | Brittany + Nick

The engagement session location is tough, let's be honest! With Instagram and Pinterest making every bride feel like they need to be standing on top of a glacier or in a field full of blooming roses at golden hour, it can be daunting to pick a place.

I always tell my couples that I want them to pick a spot that they feel most comfortable, like themselves and where they can focus on each other.  I tell them I have no expectations from them, I just want them to have fun, I'll be in charge of the rest (lighting, posing etc).  

For Brittany and Nick's engagement session we went back and forth trying to force the perfect spot, there were fees, there were long distance drives, there was going to be stress.  This wasn't what either Brittany or I wanted for their session!  Then one evening I get an email from Brittany suggesting the Scottsdale Civic Center! She mentioned that they have spent a lot of time there as a couple enjoying the restaurants and night life and that they felt comfortable there.  Music to my ears! I immediately said, "Let's do it!!!"

The moment we started our session I knew that Brittany and Nick had made the perfect pick for their session.  They were relaxed and happy to be there enjoying each other and having fun! We strolled around the Scottsdale Civic Center taking advantage of everything it has to offer.  Brittany and Nick were complete naturals in front of the camera, trusting me completely which is the best compliment my clients could ever give me! When I suggested we go to the top of a parking garage to catch the last bits of golden light they were totally down and I know they won't be disappointed in the results!

I'm thrilled to a part of Brittany and Nick's wedding next fall at the Omni Montelucia! A big thank you to Kris + Tyler of Konsider it Done for connecting me with these two incredible people, the day can't come soon enough!

Here are some of my favorite photos from our time together I hope you love them as much as I do!
