Hi, we're Hunter and Sarah, a husband-and-wife, luxury wedding photography team. We’re also educators, helping other photographers build profitable and sustainable photography businesses.
For those of you that follow Sarah or myself on Instagram or Facebook, you know that the last couple weeks were a total whirlwind for us! We flew out to the Phoenix area almost two weeks ago to photograph New York Times Bestselling author and life/business coach Dean Graziosi’s biggest annual event called “The EDGE”. It was a huge three-day conference focused on personal growth for entrepreneurs. Since my brother Tanner also lives in Scottsdale, we stayed with him and his girlfriend Jess, and their friends Jeremy and Teresa for the rest of the week. During our time in Phoenix, we had a lot of great adventures (click here to check out the travel blog), but one of the biggest highlights from the week were our two desert photo sessions!
First off, just to be clear, neither Jess and Tanner nor Teresa and Jeremy are engaged – I’m sure I just heard the sound of four distinctly disappointed moms, but we don’t want to give anyone the wrong idea! However, they were willing to each give up one of their evenings last week to drive all over the Sun Valley and take some beautiful sunset photos with us! Teresa and Jeremy were kind enough to give up an hour for a portrait mini-session on some nearby hiking trails, and their final images and the scenery absolutely blew us away. We can finally take “Sunset photoshoot in the desert” off our photography bucket list!
The very next evening, we were back in the car with Tanner and Jess, this time on our way to Papago Park right in downtown Phoenix! The combination of rocky outcroppings and desert oasis made for yet another beautiful desert photo session, but with a totally different look and feel than our session the previous evening. Plus, since we had enough time for a full session with Tanner and Jess, we ran them through the entire “engagement session” experience! They rocked two different outfits, we visited two nearby locations, and we even had some time at the very end of the session for some individual portraits of each of them (as you can tell, Tanner is very excited about his new ink – and with good reason!). Sarah and I know that even though these were our first photoshoots in the desert, they certainly won’t be our last 🙂
