Pull up a chair and stay a while, won't you?

This session was a different type of session. What I thought to be an engagement session turned out to be a “we got married!” session. Selena and Marcus are moving to Italy this month, and they could not wait any longer to exchange vows and say their “I do’s.” This was also a different session because it was a sunrise session at Saguaro National Park West. Saguaro National Park West is one of my favorite desert locations and was the perfect backdrop for Selena and Marcus’ love story!

The first light of the day gave the whole session a romantic feel, and the sun rays peeking through the hills added a sprinkle of brightness. While I’m sure Selena and Marcus could take incredible photos in a random parking lot, a setting like this sure didn’t hurt!

I also loved the way they dressed to complement the location. I always advise my gems to look up images of their session location beforehand to ensure perfect color choices, and these two definitely chose wisely! Selena’s dress and red boots popped perfectly against the saguaros in the desert, and Marcus’ green button-down beautifully completed the look!

Finding the perfect spot to take a couple’s photos isn’t always easy. Still, you better believe I’ll be planning another Saguaro National Park session very soon!

Congratulations, Selena and Marcus, on your new journey, and I hope we meet again (perhaps in Italy!)!
