Naz and Ajay’s Surprise Downtown Phoenix Engagement Session

Mar 8, 2016

Weddings can be a lot…of everything. Planning, detailing, budgeting, spending, creating, and so on. So it’s really nice when you find those moments where you can just focus on having fun and loving each other. Ajay knows this and that’s the reason he wanted to do something fun for Naz. Something that was a surprise. We met up for coffee and devised a plan to surprise his fiancè with an engagement session in downtown Phoenix. A city where they met each other and a city they explored together (Naz is from California and Ajay from New York). Naz didn’t suspect a thing when I met them where they were having drinks. We started their session and to her credit, she went with the moment. 

Naz and Ajay are getting married oceanside this fall in a chapel Naz has dreamed about for years.  Hopefully this was just the fun they needed as they prepare for the big day. 

Here are some of my favorite images from the downtown phoenix engagement session.

    Aaron, what a pleasure working with you. From 1st correspondence, you were very prompt to all questions and made everything easy all the way though the finish. We felt a good balance of you being professional and using your background and knowledge to get the best pictures, but also being laid back enough to listen to our thoughts and ideas. This was a very fun day that we’re glad you made happen, and you definitely captured us enjoying it!

01 We Talk - It’s like a first date, but less awkward. If you like my vibe, we’ll hang out.
02 We Have Fun - We become friends, and I capture you being you. It’s a win - win. And, it’s fun!
