Oh I love Catherine and Tim so much! From the moment I met Catherine, I adored her and we had so much fun talking about our mutual love of music and Columbia fleece jackets ;-). I met Tim a bit later, and obviously he was awesome as well. I was so excited when they asked me to be their wedding photographer!
When we were talking about where to take engagement photos, we had tons of ideas. Once Tim and Catherine get married they are moving to Hawaii for his job, so we wanted to capture their life in Arizona in some images that would help them remember their time in the Valley of the Sun. We landed on the idea to take some lifestyle casual photos at home and then a few beautiful sunset photos in the park where they walk every weekend and got engaged. Can I just say how I LOVED THIS IDEA SO MUCH!! I mean, just see for yourself and imagine having photos of you with your love in the home that you share. It's pretty great, not gonna lie. Also we started off making chocolate chip cookies, which is the single best activity that people can do together ever.
Can you even believe how beautiful the light was in their house? Light, and airy, and pure perfection!
They had set up a few activities that they like to do together at home so that they could really capture the feeling of their everyday love, and it was sheer perfection in every way. Here they are actually putting together wedding invitations... how fun is it that Tim and Catherine will have this memory forever?!?! I can't even take credit for the idea, it was thiers, and it was a GREAT one!
And of course most importantly... snuggling on the couch solving a crossword puzzle together... Does anyone know Stephen King's first novel? That was the one that actually stumped all of us (even Phil, but don't tell him I told you ;-). Uuugh... I hope your grand kids see this photo in fifty years and love it as much as I do!!
Time to snazz-up and head out to the park for some golden yummy sunsetting light. AHHH!!!!
They busted a few dance moves at the spot where Tim had proposed. You guys will have to share this one with your dance instructor!!
sunset turned to dusk, and we were still making such beautiful art that Phil busted out some off camera lighting and I was able to capture a few more as darkenss descended... It was simply magical. Tim and Catherine, I loved every second of this shoot, and cannot wait for your wedding in May!!
