Shannon + Anthony | Canyon Lake Engagement
Sunset Canyon Lake Engagement Photos in Arizona.
Let’s talk about locations. I drove around for an hour before this shoot to find a beautiful location to accompany the location with the water. I knew the spot at the water wasn’t very big, so I wanted something else with some killer views. I went on Google Earth and literally drove the road and looked for places that 1. had some parking and 2. had mountains around it. From there I put drop pins in my phone and headed on the trek. I stopped at each one and found a few more and made notes on a sticky pad of which ones worked and which ones didn’t. Good locations aren’t just going to fall in your lap, you have to put boots on the ground and find them!
Shannon and Anthony and their little girl have some killer genes running through them. Like seriously they are gorgeous and so so in love with each other! It was so fun spending time with them and I thank them so much for being open to all my crazy ideas and bouncing around the desert with me! My absolute favorite was our last location at Canyon Lake with the sun setting on the mountains that made for this stunning soft pink/orange reflection in the water and on the mountain that complemented their outfits so well! I’m learning more and more about how much outfits impact the images and I’m excited to share my knowledge with my clients!
