I can already tell that Kirsten & Ross’s wedding will be a ton of fun. Not only is it being coordinated by the amazing Karen of KDP Events, but it’s going to be at the Phoenix Zoo, one of my favorite venues, AND Kirsten & Ross are awesome people. Recipe for winning right there! (No pressure, Kirsten & Ross!) I went to elementary, junior high & high school with Ross’s older brother, so I’ve already challenged him to show me his epic dance moves. Always great to have something to blackmail your older brother with! They opted for downtown Mesa for their engagement photos which is a super fun place to shoot with colorful walls, funny, random statues to make fun of while you’re exploring and a ton of variety. A lot of people don’t think of downtown Mesa as the most exciting place to shoot, but it’s a pretty great location if you ask me. We even found a few trees that “out-oranged” Kirsten’s gorgeous red hair, in her words. I personally was just excited to find some rare fall color even in December in Arizona, in the middle of the city.
