As soon as they got engaged, Hope and Lance knew that they wanted to do a desert engagement session. So for their Phoenix Arizona engagement photos, we chose a location that would include all things desert, boho vibes: cactus, red rocks, and gorgeous sunset views.
Hope and Lance are from my hometown in Michigan, but Lance’s family lives in Phoenix. So Arizona has always held a special place in their hearts, and throughout their four years of dating they spent a lot of time there.
When they asked if I’d be willing to travel to Arizona for their engagement photoshoot, I was thrilled! We picked a date and packed our bags!
Papago Park is located right in the heart of Phoenix, and it is such a beautiful photo location. There are so many different backdrops and places to explore. My favorite spots include the open desert with tall saguaro cacti, and the famous Hole in the Rock.
The Hole in the Rock trail is exactly what it sounds like, a giant cave-like opening in the red rock mountains. What makes it so special is that fact that it perfectly faces the sunset, therefore it’s a very popular spot to hike and watch the sun go down.
We took advantage of these diverse locations during Hope and Lance’s engagement session, and they were so thrilled with the results.
This was Hope’s response when I delivered the final photo gallery to her:
“Oh my word Tylee!! I didn’t expect to shed some tears on a random Tuesday morning! These are absolutely PERFECT! I’m in love!!!! Thank you thank you, you’re truly the best!”
Receiving feedback like this makes my day!
Hope and Lance, thanks for being so much fun and fo inviting me out to Phoenix to capture your engagement session!
