“Forever By Your Side” – Kadria & Derek

Working as an engagement and wedding photographer, I have the wonderful opportunity to meet amazing couples each time I go for a session. While I was in Arizona, I had the chance to do just that as I met with a picture perfect couple named Kadria and Derek. Meeting at the Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square, everything about them radiated love and happiness. I knew that it was going to be a great day – they looked awesome together!

Meeting at the Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square, everything about them radiated love and happiness. I knew that it was going to be a great day – they looked awesome together!

The Arizona Science Center and Heritage Square were quite lovely to visit. With gorgeous buildings and great little areas to pose this loving couple for pictures, it made the perfect spot for these two to share a romantic time together. Endless smiles spread across their faces and as they posed in front of one of the heritage buildings, it made my mind think of this couple’s future together when they had a house of their own and shared a beautiful marriage. They were definitely on their way there already with their beautiful engagement and a wedding that was soon to be on the way. How great is love? It’s such a wonderful thing!

Kadria and Derek were definitely a fun loving couple and I couldn’t get enough of their positive energy. Spending their time walking around, posing with the letters of their first names as they sat on a bench, or even dancing around in one of the areas we had chosen for pictures, they had a love that just wouldn’t quit! Looking stunning in two different outfits, the attraction I saw between Kadria and Derek even had me smiling that day. With a wonderful friendship, a beautiful relationship, and a chemistry that always made them want to be close to each other, this smiling and happy couple was a picture perfect example of just how great love can be. Thank you for our wonderful day together and may your future hold just as many wonderful smiles!

“Pretty Little Thing Called Love” – Ashley & Gilbert’s Engagement Session

I had such an amazing time in Arizona for Ashley and Gilbert’s engagement session. Scottsdale Civic Center was definitely a unique place for this couple and it really allowed them to show off their love. Even posing next to a sculpted display that spelled “LOVE”, there was no denying that precious twinkle in their eyes as they spent the day sharing their endless affection for each other. What a great day!

It’s always a wonderful feeling to be able to work with a couple and to capture their memories of love. That’s exactly what I was able to do with Ashley and Gilbert as they spent a wonderful engagement session with me at the Scottsdale Civic Center in Arizona. These two were always full of smiles and constantly were having a great time. Arriving in stunning outfits and a love that just wouldn’t quit, it was amazing to see how much they both lit up when they were together.

Ashley and Gilbert definitely have an interesting story that brought them to where they are now. Coming from two different areas – Ashley being raised mostly in Washington and Gilbert in Arizona – college was a large factor in allowing them to meet. Both being on a basketball team, they both had seen each other around but had never talked. This changed however when they both attended a basketball party. When Ashley had been asked to dance by another guy, she grabbed on to Gilbert’s arm and said that they had to go. Even though they hadn’t talked and she was just using him as more of a scapegoat, they both hit it off and actually talked until 9 in the morning. The day after, Ashley called her sister and told her about what had happened and that Gilbert would be the man she would marry. Even though her sister thought she was crazy, apparently she was right since they are now happily engaged!

Being inseparable from that day on, they never lost contact – even when Ashley went to California for awhile. As soon as she came back to Arizona, their relationship finally fully bloomed and it wasn’t long before Gilbert’s mind was made up. Buying a ring to propose with, he headed to Ashley’s dad’s to ask permission. After that, he called Ashley on his way back to their place to meet him there. As she did so, Gilbert got out of his truck and stood in the middle of the road with her while he professed his love. Then finally, kneeling on one knee, Gilbert proposed. Even though it was a simple proposal, it was still one that took Ashley’s breath away and was filled with romance. Needless to say, they finally were on the road to marriage!

All those emotions from throughout their relationship could be clearly seen as these two posed in the park setting we had decided on. Using the large sculptured letters that spelled “Love” to our advantage, each picture of them was stunning. With the light shining romantically all around them, it was truly an inspirational moment. Congratulations to this beautiful couple! Thank you for sharing your wonderful journey with me!
