Every time I head north on Hwy 89 to visit my folks in Kingman, I look to my right and think to myself I need to explore my own backyard more. The surrounding area of my town is beautiful in such a unique way. There are fields of tall, dry grass, small rolling hills and Little Thumb Butte popping out from the flat landscape. Simple and peaceful. Liz and Daniel's engagement session on the state land not too far from their home gave me that chance.
Once we got out there, they dropped the tailgate of their pickup and let their two dogs run free. I LOVE that they brought their dogs with them! Dime (ever the worrier) and Birdie (100 miles an hour when he was going slow) made us laugh out loud more times than I could count! In between playing with their fur babies and watching the sun drop low in the sky came the most beautiful moments of this session. The unplanned moments when nothing is posed or planned are perfection. Just purely their love against some gorgeous, hazy back light. Liz and Dan's photos reflected exactly the kind, warm, loving people they are and I can't wait to head to Sedona to photograph their wedding this fall!
