A Couple’s Session at Sabino Canyon
This lovely couple contacted me about getting couple’s photos just before they moved to Japan. They had never had professional photos taken, and wanted some to remember their time in the desert. They asked for a desert location with cactus, so I knew Sabino Canyon was where we needed to shoot. Sabino Canyon features some of the best views of saguaros and mountains in the Tucson area. Paired with Tucson’s amazing sunsets, and this location is my favorite for desert landscape photos.
The couple was a little nervous at first, as so many people are when they are first in front of my camera, but relaxed quickly. We wandered in and out of the saguaros chatting and shooting. Their love for one another was undeniable, and I had an amazing time capturing it amongst the gorgeous desert scenery. They kissed, laughed, snuggled and enjoyed the cool spring air. They were so easy to photograph, my camera filled up with images faster than I ever expected.
Although I have had many sessions at Sabino Canyon, this was the first couple I photographed in a new location of the park. I immediately fell in love with it, and love bringing new couple’s to this same location. The location boasts not only amazing views of saguaros and mountains, but it offers incredible variety. The saguaros also provide amazing protection from the sun, so I can shoot from bright sun to dark wonderful consistency. The location also shows the grandeur of the desert, which I think pairs beautifully with couples’ sessions, and the grandeur of love.
I have a passion for photographing couples’ sessions, and this session will be one of my favorites. Between my wonderfully sweet clients and the location, this session will always hold a place in my heart.
