Oh, friends! We’re so excited to share Molly and Michael’s Saguaro Lake engagement session with you today!
We’ve been looking forward to Molly and Michael’s engagement session for what feels like forever! Molly is a close friend of so many of our past couples that we feel like we’ve known her for years! We’ve even gotten a couple extra chances to see her and huge her since we met to talk about her wedding! She was a guest at sweet Erica’s wedding last year, and we got to see her and Michael at this year’s AJ Bride Party, which we LOVED! We even got to take a few photos of them at the party, so we actually got a chance to get them in from of our cameras before their engagement session! Within seconds of shooting them at the AJ Bride Party, we knew their actual engagement session would be a blast.
We always love shooting in new locations, so when Molly and Michael suggested Saguaro Lake, we were really looking forward to trying out a new spot. As soon as we got there, we totally fell in love with it. And felt extra lucky. The timing couldn’t have been better because Arizona has gotten SO much rain lately (which, of course, is very unusual) that the desert was SO green, and the clouds created a perfect backdrop that allowed us to explore all over the place. We even found a little spot with overgrown grass that made us forget we were in the desert at all right in the middle of the session!
Molly and Michael are two of the sweetest people. Their warm smiles and big hearts just radiate love. We had so much fun spending the afternoon with them. We loved that Michael surprised Molly with a fresh bouquet that he had made at a local floral truck for their session, and were equally blown away when they started the session by bringing us gifts! How sweet is that?! They were so personal and thoughtful, and it meant so much to us!
Molly and Michael, we’re so excited for your wedding day! Thank you for trusting us completely when we ask you to do something crazy, and thank you for being such a joy to be around! We had so much fun with you guys, and we have so many new favorites from this session! We cannot wait to do this all again on your big day! It’s going to be here before we know it!
