Hannah and James' Heritage Square Engagement Session

I’ve been really excited for my wedding this weekend as well as the one next Friday. My last two full weddings of the spring season. Wedding season been strong. So strong, it’s been two months since I’ve gotten a blog post up. I’ve been having fun with awesome people and crushing great photos for them. At least I like to think so. :) I caught up enough this week to finally get to a blog post. Started gathering my images. Writing my words. Then I realized that while another wedding was up in the rotation, I had to get Hannah and James’ engagement up. That’s because next Friday’s wedding is theirs!

Hannah and James are competing hard for most fun couple I’ve gotten to photograph. They don’t mind being silly and they love each other tons. Their wedding is going to be a huge day of awesomeness. I know this session sure was. We even started them out on a beer date at the very place they had their first one years ago. Mother Bunch Brewing. I love that we were able to do a spot like this and then move right across the street to Heritage Square…which happens to be where they got engaged. I’d love more sessions where we go to meaningful places like that.

Here are a handful of the best photos from their Phoenix engagement session. Can’t wait to see you both one week from today and make you dance in front of my camera again. :)

Julia and Danielle's Heritage Square Wedding

These two. It was an absolute joy shooting their wedding. And I don't use that word often. Incredibly laid back, excited, and thankful for everyone who helped make their wedding happen. Julia and Danielle traveled back to California with amazing memories from their old home of all the people that love them and can't wait to see everywhere their journey will lead them. An instant classic, it was only fitting their wedding took place at the historic Heritage Square in Phoenix. Meerkats and seals forever. 

Here are some of my favorite images from their Downtown Phoenix wedding.
