Phoenix Marriott Tempe at the Buttes Wedding Inspiration | Arizona Bridal Inspiration | Styled Shoot

While attending the United Conference back in November, I had a chance to sign up for a styled shoot.   One of the best parts is learning from your peers.  Cassie Jones shared her tips and tricks on how to photograph a couple during bridal portraits.  Taking desert photos to add to your portfolio is not a bad way to spend your afternoon.  I mean who doesn’t love some wedding inspiration!

A sweet couple got all dressed up for the class and got to spend some quality time cuddling in front of 30+ photographers; all trying to get the same shot.  I’m sure it’s or it must be intimidating for the couple but they were troopers!  Taking time to put your relationship first and making time for each other is so important.  Every couple should take time and get portraits every year to celebrate being together.  Let’s face it, marriage is hard work.

Enjoy some of my favorite photos from this sunset styled shoot in the desert of Phoenix, Arizona.  If you are traveling and want to be photographed at your destination, please keep me in mind!  As you know I love an adventure.

A special thanks to the vendors!
