Papago Park - Phoenix, AZ

Alex + Cameron

So, let’s start with the star of the show – Papago Park in Phoenix. Imagine a place where the sunsets paint the sky with every shade of orange and pink you can imagine, turning the landscape into an artist’s dream. That’s where our adventure begins, and trust me, it’s the perfect stage for what’s about to unfold.


Our hero? The sweetest boyfriend in town. He’s been madly in love with his girlfriend for a whopping 10 years, and he’s ready to take the plunge. He wants to pop the big question, and guess who he called? Yours truly! Can you feel the excitement in the air? I sure did!


But hold onto your hats (or your heartstrings), because this boyfriend had more tricks up his sleeve than a magician at a kid’s birthday party. He’d planned a weekend escape at the luxurious Biltmore Hotel – a place where romance practically dances in the air. He told his beloved to get all dolled up for a fancy dinner date, and the stage was set.


As the sun started its descent in the desert sky, we all gathered at Papago Park. His girlfriend had no idea what was happening, and that was exactly the point – we were about to blow her away with the surprise of a lifetime! Our sneaky boyfriend, with a mischievous grin, teased her by saying they were going to “eat t-bones with the lions.” Classic diversion tactics!


Then, the moment of truth arrived. He spilled the beans – a special photoshoot just for them. Little did she know; we’d been concocting this plan for over a month. Every detail, from the lighting to the moment he’d drop to one knee, was finely tuned to perfection.


As I snapped away, capturing their love and excitement, I couldn’t help but be swept up in their journey. These two lovebirds had first crossed paths way back in the 3rd grade! Can you believe it? But their love story had more twists and turns than a Hollywood blockbuster. Cameron, the leading lady, had turned him down more times than I’ve had glasses of wine.


But, ah, the middle school twist! She saw him being bullied, and her heartstrings started to play a different tune. Fast forward a decade, and there they stood, bathed in the golden glow of a desert sunset. With lots of joy and excitement, Cameron said yes to forever.


This story is a testament to the enduring power of love, the thrill of a well-executed surprise, and the enchantment of capturing those special moments through the lens. I’m not just a photographer; I’m a storyteller, and I’m over the moon to share this magical tale with you. Cheers to love, surprises, and those breathtaking Papago Park sunsets! 🌅💍❤️
