Gems, I’ve got to gush about this adorable engagement session at Tohono Chul Botanical Gardens! I recently had the pleasure of photographing Carmen and Justin at one of my favorite photo session locations ever. Congratulations on your engagement, you two!
Carmen and Justin are just the cutest. They share a love for gaming and Cheetos (both regular and hot!), and they made the drive down from Tempe, AZ, to Tohono Chul Gardens for their engagement session. And let me tell you; they were fantastic!
Carmen looked absolutely stunning, thanks to her makeup done by Alexus at Bellaza Hair Salon. These two came dressed to the nines, and in the end, they actually turned their session into a staycation. How fun is that?!
When Carmen and Justin contacted me, they mentioned that they had a not-so-great experience with their previous engagement photographer. Knowing that they were disappointed with their original photos broke my heart.
I was determined to make their experience with me positive and memorable, so I worked tirelessly to be organized and communicative throughout the process. It brought me great joy to hear that they appreciated my efforts.
Tohono Chul Garden provided the perfect backdrop for their session, with its leafy surroundings and beautiful architecture. The natural light was simply magical for capturing the couple.
As we wandered through the garden, we found so much variety. We found picture-perfect spots everywhere we looked, from a gorgeous overgrown gate to a romantic bench beneath the trees.
One of the things I always remind my clients is to relax and have fun during their session. And Carmen and Justin were great! They were so comfortable together and truly enjoyed the experience, which made for some awesome photos.
I had an absolute blast re-capturing their engagement session. It was such an honor to help them create the gallery of their dreams! In the end, their photos turned out so cute. The results also overjoyed Carmen and Justin, which made my heart sing!
If you’re looking for a beautiful location for your engagement session, Tohono Chul Botanical Gardens might just be the perfect spot. I am so ready to make your experience positive and memorable here, just like I did with Carmen and Justin.
