I spent a few days in early September in Phoenix, AZ for my very first Big Fake Wedding experience (featured on RuffledBlog & BFW Blog). While I was there I was fortunate enough to connect with Sami + Sean for a mini session and Downtown Phoenix adventure. I met Sami last year at her sister’s surprise birthday party (who happens to be Ali Briskey – amazing florist!) and was immediately so sad that she lived all the way down in Arizona. Sami’s joy, smile, and laugh are infectious …therefore it’s no surprise that the man she married just a few months later was equally as kind, funny, and welcoming.
Honestly I had hoped to do several mini sessions in the Phoenix area while I was there, but alas weekdays are difficult for most folks, especially when sunset is shortly after quittin’ time.
Sean had scouted some good locations for us and off we went! It was a humid day as a storm prepared to roll in from the west. Lucky for me the rain didn’t hit for a couple more days. Unlucky though was that the clouds that evening were thick and killed the end of our golden hour.
I wasn’t sure how I would like working in Phoenix, but now I can say that I LOOOVE it! The terrain, the colors, the light, the architecture… everything feels so new and different. You know the saying that variety is the spice of life? Well it’s more like candy for photographers!
P.S. HAPPY (ALMOST) FIRST ANNIVERSARY – NOVEMBER 8th!!!
