Brittany & Spencer – Desert Engagement in Gilbert

Brittany & Spencer spiced up an already hot afternoon for their desert engagement in Gilbert!  They met while Brittany was a swim instructor at ASU and Spencer took her class to work on his “technique” so he could be a Navy SEAL.  He asked her out after class and the rest is history!  I asked Brittany when she knew Spencer was “the one:”

“We had decided that we shouldn’t do long distance again when he went away for OCS in Rhode Island. The next week I started receiving letters (his only form of communication while in training) and they kept coming every couple days. We wrote back and forth to each other the entire 3 months he was in there and that’s when I think we both realized that we couldn’t be without each other.  

We got engaged on Dec. 23, 2013 on Thumb Butte Mountain in Prescott, AZ. We were hiking down the mountain and he wanted to stop to look at the view. When I turned around he was on one knee and popped the question. I immediately turned back around in my surprise and then back again to say “yes!”. There was an embarrassing amount of “Oh my Gods” in there too.”

Love it!!  So excited for your wedding and best wishes to you in your big move to the Seattle area!

iPad Awesomeness

Sometimes I look at Apple products and think, why would I ever need that?  Then I buy them, and think, how did I ever live without this?!  That happened when I bought my first iPhone, and it happened again when I bought my iPad!  My number one reason to buy it was to be able to demonstrate to my couples how they would be receiving their wedding images.

I purchased my iPad shortly before my first bridal show in January, and have used it at every consult since.  I’ve actually used it for a lot more than just showing the image gallery.  I pull up blog posts to show similar weddings or locations I’ve shot at, and I can even use during consults to check my ShootQ calendar for date availability.  It has been a huge help for my business!  And now I can cross #23 off my 101 in 1001 list!
