John & Emily | Boyce Thompson Arboretum Engagement Session

I loved everything about Emily & John's engagement session!

When I first chatted with them over Facetime I instantly knew I wanted to capture their love story. At the time of our meeting they lived in Chicago, where I was born and raised and are planning a wedding in the desert at The Paseo here in Arizona! This couple and their wedding encompass so many of my favorite things! The city of Chicago, the desert, family traditions, a fun dance party and a whole lot of love.

During one of their trips to Arizona we met up at the Boyce Thompson Arboretum super early in the morning for their engagement session! This location is a dream, it is so different from anything else here in Arizona which was perfect to give them some diversity from their desert wedding. It was hot, sweaty and so much fun! These two are just so sweet and such a joy to be around and I can't wait for their wedding next spring!
