Alyssa & Dave's Tucson Desert Engagement Session

Alyssa & Dave's Tucson Desert Engagement Session

We had so much fun with Alyssa & Dave at their gorgeous Tucson desert engagement session! Can you believe these glowy desert veiws?

This couple is so sweet and a match made in heaven. They are both mellow and kind with a crazy love for each other. Dave was so sweet and gentle with his bride to be, we just know that he is going to make an incredible husband! Alyssa & Dave both live in San Fransisco, so we met up with them while we were there shooting a wedding a few months back. They looked so cute and we were SO excited to be shooting an engagement session in the bay area! Unfortunately, the weather had other plans for the day, because it was super gloomy and crazy windy (like so many days in the bay area!) We got a handful of super cute shots, but it was not what any of us had in mind! When A & D were back in Tucson a few months later, we convinced them to meet up for a mini desert engagement session to show off their Tucson roots. We are SO glad they agreed, because look at this gorgeous, sunny desert! Tucson was showing off for this one and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. 

We have been anxiously awaiting Alyssa & Dave's big day at the gorgeous Tubac Golf resort (which is our all time favorite venue to shoot at) and it's finally here! We are working with an incredible team of vendors and we are ready to capture this wonderful day for this amazing couple. Congratulations Alyssa & Dave! Thank you for inviting to be a part of your big day. We adore you two!! Thanks for tuning in friends. Hope everyone has an incredible weekend!

Hugs,

Betsy & John

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany had the most stunning bohemian desert anniversary session ever! It was inspired by Tucson and it didn't disappoint! Smoke bombs, gorgeous florals and smoke bombs. Interested yet?

When Mike and Brittany asked us about doing an anniversary session, we just knew it was going to be incredible. These two are sweet, mellow and fashionable musicians with a crazy mad love for each other. Mike and Brittany met at a music conference as teenagers, had a whirlwind romance and tied the knot a short time later. Since getting married, they moved to Tucson, an Arizona desert town, deeply rooted in a culture of music and art. Mike and Brittany fell in love with the culture and community they found in Tucson. They just celebrated 8 years of being married and wanted to create a shoot that represented not only their love for each other, but the rich connection they have established with their little desert town. We created a shoot for them that was inspired by the southwest desert, filled with eclectic, geometric details and just gushing with romance.

We feel so blessed that this gorgeous session was featured on Green Wedding Shoes
