Sweet summertime on the Salt River

Abby and Jesse braved the heat for their engagement photos, finishing the afternoon in the cool Arizona river water. These two were so sweet together, constantly laughing and loving on each other — I hardly had to prompt them! On our planning call they'd told me they love to be goofy and they're NOT afraid of a little PDA, and they delivered!

They talked about all the things they're most excited for at their wedding (at Venue at the Grove in Phoenix) including their favorite music and all the photo trends they love (like direct flash!). Their wedding date is their dating anniversary, and it's details like those that make my heart swoon. Their other priorities: good food, good people, and a special visit from the beer burros during cocktail hour!
