Elizabeth is from back east, and Clifford is from South Africa. Right now, Elizabeth is travelling around Europe right now. They are getting married in Florida. I think it’s safe to say that these two, in addition to being freaking adorable, are quite the travelers! The Salt River provided the perfect natural backdrop to their infectious laughs and natural reactions. Cliff told me that he had never been photographed professionally before because in South Africa, high school portraits were not a thing. You’d never be able to tell he had never been photographed, because both of these guys looked like pros to me! We had beautiful light in one of my favorite locations to shoot in the valley. I love showing both Arizona natives and nonnatives the treasures in their backyards. The wild horses of the Salt River were off in the distance and not close enough to photograph, but nevertheless, any day spent photographing along the Salt River is a great day in my book. Also, any guy who gets his girl a colored engagement ring has great taste in my book- check out that topaz stunner of a ring!
I’m gearing up for the start of underwater season- I’ve got a beautiful new pool to use and several amazing sessions in my calendar. It makes the summer heat just a little bit more tolerable, but barely! In the meantime, I have lots of wonderful sessions to share on here, as well as a few weddings to shoot still before I wrap up my spring season! It’s been my busiest spring to date and I am so grateful for all of the wonderful clients. Stay tuned for lots of new work here on my blog!
