OMG WHERE DO I EVEN START?????? AWDREE + TAYLOR, I <3 U.
Awdree and I met the summer after my senior year of high school when I went to work for a library in my moms smalllll home town of St. Johns, Arizona. You probably have never heard of it, and that is okay hahaa. We for sure never thought that YEARS down the line I would be spend 10+ hours with her and her future husband in a truck on the way to Horseshoe bend. But honestly, neither of us were complaining.
We had a freaking BLAST road trippin’ to one of Arizona’s most beautiful locations. Right on the southern border of Utah and just outside of Page, Arizona lies Horseshoe Bend. A little backstory, I had never been before their engagement session, so this whollleee trip was new to me.
We met up just before noon to start our trop to da bend. The whole trip was full of cuss words, laughter, country music, and getting to know each other. Taylor grew up in Saint Johns and knew a lot of my cousins and my mom knows his mom, talk about crazy hahaha. I still can’t believe that after all of these years, the three of us ended up in a car together. Taylor is one of the funniest people I’ve met to date, it is clear why Awdree chose him for her mans because she is just as funny! They clearly have so much fun together.
Awdree and Taylor are seriously perfect for each other and very much in love. As you will see, they love to flip each other off. But not for the reason you may think. They do it as a form of I love you and to tell each other goodbye. To be honest, I knew this before shooting but I still thought they were flipping me off through my camera hahaha. Their passion together and quirky inside jokes are what really make these pictures come alive. The adventurous scenery was just a beautiful addition to their engagement session, but they are what make these pictures some of my best work.
Don’t believe me? Well, see for yourself <3
