Summer desert engagement photos in Arizona.

I can’t get enough of these engagement photos in Arizona. It was such a great time working with these two and they were champs dealing with the August heat. The location we shot at was literally a rest stop in the middle of nowhere. This was such an awesome option because we were able to create some really unique engagement pictures. I’d be pretty confident to say we are the only people to ever have shot a session here. Check out the photos and let me know what you think in the comment section below!

If you are looking for places to take engagement pictures in Arizona, I would highly recommend just driving around and seeing what you can find. Some of my favorite all time sessions had no exact plan for location. Since I live in Wisconsin, I came a day early to so I could spend the day scouting out locations.

A big part of my scouting is figuring out where the sun is going to be during the time of the session. As a natural light photographer, the sun is my main source of light and I need to pay very close attention to it. Sometimes the difference between an incredible shot and an okay shot is minutes.

If you have any questions about how I find locations when I travel for sessions please feel free to contact me!
