They’re THAT couple. You know the ones. They’re so freaking adorable that you can’t take your eyes off them. They’re gorgeous and silly and cuddly and goofy and so sweet together that you find yourself non-stop smiling in their presence. And so do they. They absolutely light up when they look at each other. They’re the epitome of the perfect pair.
Alex & Dustin wanted a vintage vibe with a modern twist, so we decided to begin their engagement session and one of the best throw-back places I could think of… an old time Soda Shop! MacAlpine’s is a sweet little joint downtown that makes you feel like you stepped back in time. It was the perfect spot to share a root beer float, swivel on the bar stools, and get a little intimate in the antique phone booth. They had no trouble being snuggly, and needed no prompts to steal kisses, so I knew the session was going to be fabulous. I could just feel the love radiating from them… and not just because it was a hot summer day!
Quick wardrobe change and we headed over to Heritage for a romantic stroll around the Square, which is the oldest remaining residential block in the city of Phoenix and a very cool historical site. And it also happens to be a lovely spot with lots of pretty backdrop options. Not that we needed any extra pretty with these two… they are all kinds of pretty just on their own. They cuddled on benches, snuggled in the garden, and danced in the street. Basically, most of the session was a whole lot of me saying… “Oh my god, you guys are adorable together!”
Alexandra and Dustin, thank you so much for allowing me the honor and trusting in me to capture this perfect time in your lives. Thank you for being so sweet and genuine, both to me and to each other. I absolutely CAN. NOT. WAIT. for your wedding this fall at Windmill Winery, my friends! 💕
