She’s a doll. Straight out of a catalog. Her giggles are infectious. Her joyousness is contagious. And her smile doesn’t know how to be tired.

He’s a Hotshot. With a capital “H.” An elite wildfire fighter who runs toward danger when everyone else runs away. Who saves people’s business and homes. Who risks his life for others. A real-life superhero. He flew home from the field just in time for their engagement session at the Royal Palms… and he brought the water with him!

Not too much. Not too little. But just the right amount of rain, for just the right amount of time, for us to bust out the cute clear umbrellas we’ve had for months but haven’t used yet! We get 300 days of sunshine every year in Phoenix and only 2-3 rainy days per month, but always want to be prepared — so we keep them in our car — and we’re so glad we were! Because we L-O-V-E the results! Insert emoji with heart eyes. Over. And over. And over! Plus, the rain’s just straight up romantic, right?! Don’t believe us? Ali and Noah disagree! Good thing it didn’t rain that hard, though! We didn’t have a Notebook-style rowboat! But we did have Kierstin’s teal Kate Spade dress and gold sparkling Kate Spade heels (both of which Amy wanted to steal… and maybe Jordan, too) and Andy’s sharp navy suit (because every guy needs well-fitted navy suit). And that was A-OK with us! It never hurts to class, class, class it up. The camera loves it!

Kierstin and Andy, wow and WOWZA, you guys! First, the wowza. You. Two. Are. STUNNING together! At the expense of sounding corny and cliché, when the weather cooled down, you two heated up! Dang. Second, let’s talk about the wow. You two are so cool. Ser-i-ous-ly. You rocked with the drops. You rolled with the drizzles. It didn’t phase you at all — and because of that, it turned out better than if didn’t rain a drop or drizzle at all! You’re both so kind, so sweet, and so obviously in love. It shows in every frame and we couldn’t be more excited for your wedding this spring! We love you guys and hope you love your Ali and Noah moments as much as we do! Big hugs to you both!
