maggie + holden

dead horse point engagement photos

this work i get to do, it’s very hard to explain. the term wedding photographer, for me, conjures up images of someone posing aunts and uncles and the couple in uncomfortable positions, with artificial lights everywhere and lots of stress. i just cannot relate to that image, so it is sometimes hard for me to explain exactly what i get to do to people who i don’t know.

i get to meet people from all over the world. people who are in love, who are so in love, in fact, that they are willing to be vulnerable in front of a stranger so that they can have their beauty captured forever.

i get to be endlessly creative. the couples i get to interact with have a trust in me that i could never thank them enough for, a trust that allows me to see them as they are, not push them into a box or a type.

i photograph crazy outgoing couples that drink whiskey the entire time we’re shooting, who have tattoos and piercings and can’t keep their lips off eachother.

i photograph very private, very shy couples. couples that love the desert with every inch of their being, but don’t like being on a stage and don’t like being the center of attention.

i photograph couples like maggie and holden, who are all heart. who, and you can tell upon meeting them, have a kind of love that is the kind where there are the only two people in the universe when they’re locking eyes. it’s infectious and inspiring and absolutely beautiful. i was able to spend some time with them last year for their engagements at dead horse point, and now i cannot wait to see them for their wedding in sedona in a few short weeks.
