It's amazing how time flies by. I remember spending our afternoons at cheer practice (always cracking up about something!) and now we're both getting married and I just took her themed country engagement photos! Karen is one of the sweetest and funniest people I know and it was so good to catch up with her and meet her wonderful fiancé, Tyler :) Knowing Karen I knew we were going to put together a gorgeous shoot and it was above and beyond what I could have expected. Our first stop was Apacheland in Apache Junction and it was such an awesome spot! The old church, the distressed wood and western feel was perfect for Karen + Tyler's country engagement feel. Then we drove on what felt like the curviest, narrow road ever to reach this epic spot at Canyon Lake. It was worth the drive :) The views over looking the lake were spectacular and these two were willing to do anything like climbing down this steep mountain and getting in the water :) It is definitely going on my favorites list for places to shoot.
Karen + Tyler were so awesome and walked through cactus, climbed up mountain rocks, climbed down mountain rocks, stood in water and looked ah-mazing doing it in the crazy August heat! I can't wait for their wedding in May <3
