The Desert Botanical Garden | Katie + Eugene Engaged
I always tell my couples that I have no exceptions for their engagement session, I want them to bring their smiles and let me take care of the rest! It's usually their first time together in front of a professional camera with a professional photographer telling them how to pose and where to look etc. And going into an engagement session I always know there is going to be a short period of time where their might be some awkwardness or apologize before their totally comfortable. I always say you have fun and let me do the rest!
Well, this was not the case with Katie and Eugene lol They had been practicing! They won an engagement session with another local photographer over the summer and recently took a trip to Korea and took engagement photos with one of Eugene's friends there! I think I was more nervous for their session than they were!
I joked with them that I should write the other photographers a thank you note for getting them ready for me (the slow walk was ON. POINT.), but to see them together, their chemistry and their love, there is no doubt that they would have rocked their session regardless.
We started out at Sugar Bowl in Old Town Scottsdale, taking advantage of the fun colors and Katie and Eugene opted to share an ice cream Sunday. The place was busy but Katie and Eugene didn't mind one bit! From their we explored Old Town a little bit more stopping by some of my favorite spots and just having fun.
After a quick change we met up at The Desert Botanical Garden with plenty of time to enjoy that gorgeous golden desert light! The more I shoot there the more I fall in love with the garden and it's beauty.
Katie and Eugene are so full of joy, funny and sweet. I'm so excited to capture their wedding day!
Here are some of my favorites from our time together I hope you love them as much as I do!
