Kacie & Jake

A few months back my girlfriends and I scheduled this really fun girls trip. It's always nice to be able to take some time and explore with some of your best friends, so that's exactly what we did. For this trip we packed our bags, hopped on a plane and flew to the sunny state of Arizona. I actually arrived a few days earlier than everyone else because I wanted to be able to squeeze in a few shoots and take some time to explore. Before heading to AZ, I made an announcement that I would be there and was interested if any couples wanted to book a session. Luckily for me, that is when Kacie & Jake inquired with me to schedule a couples session!

Arizona couples session at papago park

For this session, we really wanted something relaxed and laid-back so the perfect location was at Papago Park. Papago Park is located in Phoenix, Arizona but stretches all across Maricopa County. The park is home to many different activities such as hiking trails, lakes, golf courses, private reservations and so much more. This park holds so much beauty that I knew this was the perfect spot for our session. Definitely if you're on the lookout for a good spot to stop during your next Arizona trip, make sure you check out Papago Park.

Of course since we were in Arizona, we were surrounded by rocks, sand and essentially a big desert. So for this session, I really wanted Kacie and Jake to match the scenery perfectly and well... they did. From the outfits to their chemistry, it worked so well and that's why these are some of my favorite photos ever. We basically were just running throughout the park, taking any and every chance to get some cool and different poses. Usually during couples sessions, I try to make my couples as relaxed as possible because that's when I feel the photos are the most raw and real. The month that this session took place, Kacie and Jake actually had just moved into their home so they were extremely excited to print some of these photos to have throughout their new place. While this day was absolutely perfect, the photos with K+J and the airplane in the sky is one of my favorites (pictured below). Papago Park is a few minutes down the road from an airport so throughout the session we had airplanes flying above us every 30 seconds or so. Although this wasn't the most quiet location to shoot at, it definitely was a fun one and I had such an amazing time with Kacie and Jake.
