Drew & Laine – A surprise proposal

I’m excited to share a surprise proposal that was several months in the making! I was hired by Drew to capture this really special event for him and his girlfriend Laine. They met in Arizona and relocated to California for work where they currently live. Arizona is a special place to them so it was perfect they get engaged in Arizona where it all started. Everything took place on the Arizona Grand Resort property, where they were staying for their visit. If you have never been to the Arizona Grand Resort, it’s a really fabulous place. I document weddings here all the time and take my family here at least once a year for a staycation to enjoy the waterpark.
I didn’t get a chance to meet Drew before hand and wasn’t sure what they looked like. So I was eagerly waiting for when they would walk up to the designated spot. I had Scott come out for second camera work to help capture more angles. Scott heard them walking up the hill and we quickly hid behind brush to not spoil the surprise for Laine.
They stood and checked out the amazing view for a bit….And… the rest is history!
Aren’t they a beautiful couple?! I couldn’t resist getting some more shots in at this scenic spot. If you’ve been to the Arizona Grand Resort then you know there are some beautiful lush green spots there! Here is the private patio they had all to themselves for dinner to celebrate following the proposal.Congrats again Drew and Laine! I’m so excited for you and this special time in your lives together. You’re a beautiful couple, thanks for having me out to document it!

Cheers to you,

Amanda

Katherine & Ian’s Engagement Photosession

I recently met up with Katherine & Ian for their engagement session in Tempe. We had fabulous weather and I love their choices for wardrobe! Katherine has beautiful green eyes, and her green cardigan just lit them up. They are getting married in the spring, and we are looking forward to capturing their big day and working with their wedding planner Jessica.
