When photographing couples meets traveling to awesome places and that meets your brother in law and soon to be sister in law's engagement session- it equals awesome! They had engagement session photos done in Florida, but were unhappy with the results of them. It was our distinct pleasure in creating photos they'll really enjoy! We had a family trip to Arizona the week before Thanksgiving. We were able to take photos here and there at different locations, which really made them special! No strict timelines or limited locations, but a few minutes here, and a few minutes there. In this case, Mom and Dad O'Reilly booked a house via Air B&B where we all stayed. The boys went mountain biking, and girls went hiking. Mom cooked a Thanksgiving meal on a Tuesday which was the best thing ever! All stores were open, there wasn't the mad rush for the ingredients, etc!
For this photo, after a day of hiking and biking we ventured to the park down the road where we went hiking and biking. The buttes were beautiful and the colors of the Arizona terrain are stunning. Matt and Carmen have such an interesting chemistry! Which you know is actually quite punny because Matt is a Chemist! I crack myself up! Their love is sweet and unique to them!
