From the Photographer:
“Andrea and Gabe came all the way from South Florida for their engagement session here in the desert! Okay, only exaggerating a little, lol! These two were visiting family in Scottsdale and thought it would be the perfect time and place for their engagement photos. Boy oh boy, did they time it just right?! The wild flowers were in full bloom on this beautiful day by the Salt River.
During our session our big world shrunk a little bit as we conversed about places to have a good meal in South Florida and epic places to hike and camp around Florida. I moved to Arizona just a little over a year ago from West Palm Beach and this adorable duo is based out of Delray Beach just a short skip down the road! I was pretty excited to finally meet someone else who has enjoyed camping at Payne’s Prairie in Florida where you can see all sorts of wild life like bison and wild horses. We were hoping to see the wild horses here at the Salt River, but they did not show their presence this go around, but we did have the most gorgeous sunset! Gabe and Andrea are such a fun loving adventurous couple! I loved hearing their memories about driving all the way from Florida to Denver, even after an 18 hour drive there wasn’t time for naps it, was straight to exploring the town. Or their shark sightings in South Beach and rushing escape! Andrea has explored many of the National Parks with her family and some with Gabe. We actually share the same FAVORITE National Park, Olympic National Park! Not only are they I am sure their future holds a lot great views, more wild animal encounters and a whole lot of love.
