Love in the Superstition Mountains ❤️ Gilbert Engagement Photographer

Oh. My. Word. Hot does not begin to describe the summer weather in Arizona! Its been a little over 2 months since I picked up my business, my little family, and 12 years worth of stuff in our tiny townhouse and headed East to Phoenix. At the beginning of summer. Most people have laughed when I told them this, Why on earth would you do that? they ask. But I digress. I’ve been learning how to plan around it and make the most of the absolutely mind blowing sunsets that we get during the monsoon, its a trade off!

Early in the morning on the 4th of July, I met these awesome people at Lost Dutchman State Park, right at the base of the Superstition Mountains. Early in the morning it was already over 80 degrees, mind you, so “coolest part of the day” is all relative. They were absolute troopers, as we scoped out the venue options within the park for their intimate wedding in November. The location is absolutely gorgeous, if I was a hiker (those who know me are laughing right now) I would totally hike it at sunrise for the amazing colors and view! It also has a lot of permanent residents… one of which we nearly stepped right onto under a tree near the path – snakes!! This California girl nearly jumped 50 feet in the air, and I may or may not have screamed just a little, but we made it out alive in spite of my totally inappropriate reaction!

Stay tuned for their fabulous wedding photos coming this Fall!
