Peter and Samantha’s Mogollon Rim Engagement Session near Payson, AZ

Peter and Samantha escaped the heat down in Phoenix on Monday to come up for their engagement session on the Mogollon Rim, here near Payson. And I am SO glad they did, because we had a blast! Sam warned me at the beginning that she is awkward in front of a camera and doesn’t pose, but I think  you’ll agree with me as you go through these that they are both complete naturals at this! From the moment we got started, these two were on fire and nailed every single shot. And then add Mojo, their adorable micro mini Goldendoodle, into the mix and you’ve got the Dream Team right there!

Peter and Sam get married next month up here and I can’t wait! October in Strawberry, AZ?! I jumped on that like crazy! It’ll be an awesome time of year in a beautiful place, but what’s even better is that these two are phenomenal. So kind, happy, natural, and fun! Their chemistry together was so sweet and so comfortable. Sam couldn’t quit smiling and Peter couldn’t quit looking at her. They are such an amazing duo! I seriously get to work with the most amazing couples!

Are you ready for cuteness overload? Oh Mojo! You guys are going to love him!

Just how natural are these two, you ask? I explained what we were going to do next, and then turned to run to my spot. When I turned around they were standing like this waiting to jump into the next bit of fun. I had to run back up and get a shot. They were perfect!

It’d been quite a long time since I’d pulled this one out of my bag o’ tricks, but with how these two were rocking every single thing we did I knew they could pull it off. And they did!

Would you believe me if I told you the parking lot is actually about a foot behind them? Totally is! I love that they trusted me and sat there even though it seemed odd! It was the perfect spot and if I hadn’t told you the parking lot was there you probably would have never guessed!

And then it was time for The Rim. So many reasons why I chose this particular spot. The grass above, the clearing, but especially for this rock.

Seriously, could they be any cuter?!
