This couple’s photoshoot in the beautiful McDowell Mountains Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona, was so special for me. It is of my good friend Daniella and her significant other Andy. I recently got to reconnect with her after several years, when she messaged me that her and Andy were coming through Arizona and wanted to get together. She offered to take engagement photos of Kaleo and me, and I so wanted to photograph their beautiful faces too!
Dani and Andy just finished hiking the first 1000 miles of the Pacific Crest Trail right before we met up. No big deal. I chose to do their photos at the McDowell Mountains in Scottsdale, Arizona because it was the perfect backdrop for such an adventurous couple!
When we first met at ASU, I noticed that Daniella was the nicest one in the class and that she was stylish, outgoing, positive, and eager to learn about art and photography. We naturally became fast friends while pursuing our Bachelor of Fine Arts in Photography.
Dani + Andy,
Wow. It was so great to reconnect with you guys. You both are truly one of a kind, beautiful and loving people from the inside out. I love your adventurous spirit, your love for the outdoors, and I am excited to cheer you on to be the best photographers, artists, and entrepreneurs in Oregon. We truly value the short but sweet times we spent with you guys and admire all your goals and journeys together!
Thank you for being wonderful models and loving each other so much!
