Mogollon Rim Engagement Session: Hailey & Anthony

Mogollon Rim

Arizona Engagement Session

Excitement just continued to build as the day approached for Hailey & Anthony’s engagement session! We decided that we would be a little adventurous and capture their engagement photos at Mogollon Rim, just northeast of Payson, Arizona. Having sunset engagement photos taken on top of a beautiful Plateau, over looking the forest…what’s not to love?! Minus the 50mph wind gusts (that may or may not be an exaggerated number) it was perfect! I can’t think of a better location to have captured a snapshot of Hailey and Anthony’s emotion and the love they have for one another!

A special note to the couple…

Hailey & Anthony,

Together, you hold a very dear and special place in my heart! It is such a blessing and honor to call you friends! To witness the beginning of your love story, watching as it blossomed and continues to take shape! Now I am eager and ready to see you step into the next chapter as you each say “I do” on your wedding day!

Thank you for choosing me to capture your journey through my lens! Soon we will be flying out to Georgia to capture the moment you become husband and wife. What a beautiful day it will be!

From your kind and generous hearts to the special love that you share, I am anxiously anticipating to see what your future holds as Mr & Mrs Portanova! (PS confession…Anthony, it seems like I have to “Facebook spellcheck” your last name every time I write it. Have you considered adopting Hailey’s last name? :D)

Enjoy your sneak peek!
