Here in Arizona, the weather is starting to warm up. For us wedding photographers it means early morning sessions! I was so happy when Lepree and Aaron decided to do an early morning session at Boyce Thompson Arboretum. The location had dreamy greenery all over which is hard to find in Arizona. I couldn't get over how dang photogenic they are. Every photo I took they nailed it. I was so impressed!
At one point during the shoot, Aaron asked me if he was squinting. I'm not going to lie, I didn't see him squint once. Lepree is a goddess! She purchased the perfect skirt that made all my photography dreams come true. I am so happy I have another chance to photograph them on their wedding day next year. They are PERFECT!
This blog post is just a little peek. The rest of the gallery will be done by the end of the week.
The Engagement story.
LePree's Side of the Story: Aaron had prepared a very excited New Years Eve date night at the Arizona Botanical garden during their Las Noches De las Luminarias (Festival of lights). Unfortunately, the previous week had been very long and I had been recovering from a nasty cold! But I was determined to make this event. The day finally arrives and much to my surprise it starts raining cats and dog's as we are getting ready to go!
Aaron Side of the Story: I was freaking out! She was just getting better from a cold, plus god decided that it was going to be a rainy cold day. I was on the edge of having a meltdown. Trying to navigate her family and friends out of the pouring rain and figure out how I was going to ask this gorgeous stunning woman to marry me. I was not going to move the date and I was determined to get this ring on her finger! So I pretended like I was calling friends and family for last minute dinner plans, which was a cover-up for EVERY ONE GO TO MY SISTERS HOUSE AND SET UP MY ENGAGEMENT STUFF! IT"S HAPPENING! So the stalling started.
LePree's Side of the Story: Aaron tells me we are going to dinner but before we go... we have to wait until his sister comes home so he can give her some extra chairs for her New Years Eve party. SO there I am sitting waiting on his sister to get home, then he leaves with the chairs and shortly after calls me to come over. THAT'S WHEN IT GOT REAL!!!! I walk into the house and with the light dimmed and our song playing! I see family and friends, then drop everything in my hands and began to ball my eyes out! Completely in shock, as I walk towards lanterns, flowers, and a picture memorial of our entire relationship.... Aaron on one knee surrounded by our loved ones with lanterns spelling out MARRY ME PREE!!!! I was overwhelmed with Love, I couldn't speak or move. Aaron begins to ask me to marry him and I Jumped into his arms with my only word being YES!!!!!
Aaron Side of the Story: Best Moment of My Life!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
