A weekend in New York City

A weekend in New York City

Ahhhh you guys! We had such a great trip to New York for Krista & Adam's engagement session! We are usually all about vast open landscapes, but this little glimpse of city life was pretty rad. Our trip was only 3 days so we didn't have a lot of time to explore, but we made the most of the time we had. John had never been to NYC, so we visited all the touristy spots possible and we walked so dang much. From the Central Park Conservatory Garden, Times Square at night, Top of the Rock and the Brooklyn Bridge, we saw so many good things, ate so many good meals and visited so many cool places. It was a weekend true to the quick paced New York lifestyle, but we are already making plans for our next trip! If these photos look a lot different than our normal style, it's because they are...so.many.buildings. #sorrynotsorry for all the touristy photos + the one photo of us together during the whole trip!

PS-All these photos are film, taken on either the pentax 645nii or the canon 1v with a mix of portra 400, portra 800 and ilford delta 3200.

Thanks for the good times NYC ✌🏼

Megan & Mike's Tucson Engagement Session

We are so excited that Megan & Mike are ELOPING today!! Elopements feel so special and intimate, we know their's is going to be wonderful. We had so much fun with these two at their Tucson engagement session. When we met, it immediately felt like we were old friends. They insisted that they were not photogenic at all, but I'd say these photos prove otherwise. Congratulations Megan & Mike! I know we only met last week, but we are so excited for all the future has in store for you. 

PS-the photos below are all film. Isn't it just so beautiful and dream like? Love film! 

XO, Betsy & John

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

When Jane and Blair told us they were eloping and wanted to book us for a photo session to celebrate, we were so excited! Not only are these two model material, but they have a sweet, gentle love for each other that really shines through their images. We strolled along dirt paths, surrounded by grassy fields of mesquite trees. He held her hand and looked at her adoringly as they carefully walked through the thick grass. A long week of rainy days preceded their session, so the once deserty landscape was lush and beautiful. Jane & Blair were quiet and pensive, but so connected even in silence. It was a cool day and the clouds hung low, but peeked out just in time to give us those gorgeous golden hour portraits that we can't live without. It was such a stunning day to celebrate marriage! We feel so honored when couples choose us to document their wedding days and this instance is no different. Big or small, every wedding day is just as special as the next. Congratulations Jane & Blair!!
