Erin and Brennan's Mill Avenue Tempe Engagement Session

You may recognize these two from this amazing Phoenix wedding last year. In the midst of a busier than usual summer and their wedding quickly following their engagement session, I somehow missed blogging this spectacular engagement session. I'm really not sure how, because it was legit one of the best sessions from last year. But, I really don't mind. These two rock and now I get to relive hanging with them all over again. These two went to school together at ASU and live right by where we did this session. It was fun walking around and making them great art from right in their neighborhood. 

Here are some of my favorite images from their Mill Avenue engagement session.

Danielle and Kyle's Paradise Valley Country Club Engagement Session

These two crack me up. We had a lot of fun wandering around Paradise Valley Country Club for their engagement session, and I've thoroughly enjoyed their hilarious social media posts since we met. So much so I am even willing to forgive Kyle for saying Die Hard isn't a Christmas movie. Though if he's careful, I might start a GoFundMe to bribe Jesse McCartney to break them up. For only he has the power. (Kyle popped the question to her on stage right after Jesse got done singing to her.) Seriously though, these two don't take themselves too seriously and that's a wonderful thing. 

Here are some of my favorite images from their Paradise Valley engagement session. Yippee ki yay.

Aaron Kes Photography - Best of 2017

This is the first time I've blogged a "best of" for the year. It turns out, it's incredibly hard. I had an amazing year full of amazing people and creating many images I love...and hopefully they did too! Even on a personal level, it was a big year for me and my wife. We bought a house! (I even kick off the post with a shot of us I took using a tripod and remote) We also had a ton of fun traveling the country and the world with each other and friends.

While there are a lot of engagement sessions and weddings in here, I have included a lot of my family and portrait work as well. I don't get to blog those a lot so I think this is the perfect way to show some of those sessions off. 

2017 was certainly a tough year in the world in many regards, but I am thankful to this year and everyone who made it awesome for me. I photographed many weddings in Phoenix and the valley area, but my clients also took me to gorgeous places in Sedona and even San Francisco. 2018 has a lot to live up to. Cheers to all of you and I hope your year kicks ass!

Here are some of my favorite images I photographed this year.
