If you ever want that country barn look out in the middle of the Arizona desert, Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale, AZ just may be the place for your engagement photos.
This couple’s wedding was right after the pandemic, so they were going to go with a backyard wedding theme and it was definitely going to be all cowboy boots and simple with that country backyard bonfire idea. Flannel shirts and cowboy boots were definitely what this couple were all about. So why not choose a spot that goes with that and them. Sometimes that can make a couple so comfortable when they are right in their element.
This couple told me they were hardly in front of the camera. So I knew I would have to help them with getting them comfortable in front of the camera. People always think it is going to be harder than it is, but with the right photographer, we usually know what to do to make the whole couple experience in front of the camera look natural. I know this couple was happy with their photos, because months later, I walked into their home for their backyard wedding and there were big canvases printed out and they raved on and on about their beautiful photos. I love that.
Sahuaro Ranch Park in Glendale, AZ gives us many options with different sorts of barns and ranch style historic homes to photograph and if you haven’t ever been there (which surprisingly some that live in the Phoenix area don’t know it exists) then you are missing out. In the early Spring, it also has a beautiful rose garden.
