Adrienne & Will | A Payson Engagement Session

Community over competition. I love this as a mantra and just as a way of life in this crazy business of photography. I met Adrienne and Will through my very good photographer friend, Stesha of Stesha Jordan Photography. She recommended me to them when they were in search of a photographer for their upcoming 2017 wedding. To say I was shocked is an understatement. (I know I know, stop being so hard on myself.) I just couldn't believe that this amazing photographer was recommending me to her friends for such an important day!

Then I met Adrienne and we got along so well, bonding over the wedding planning process and of course, some wine. I could probably bond with anyone when wine is involved, but I loved how we agreed on the things we wanted out of our wedding days. Fast forward to the day of their engagement photo one of my favorite Arizona towns, Payson! I was even more excited when they said that's where their wedding would be, you can't get a more gorgeous backdrop for such a special day. I'm only familiar with hiking trails around Payson so I hopped into their truck with them and their two lively dogs, Frank and Stan, and I was a little unsure when we were driving down a random road. But Will said to trust him, he had the perfect spot....and then we came up to this cluster of yellow aspen trees and I think my and Adrienne's jaws just dropped. Nailed it! Can't wait for your wedding day you two!
