I love shooting at Canyon Lake SO much! Not only is it totally accessible but the views!! There are so many different turnoffs and locations there to get such a good variety of backdrops. If you’re looking for both epic mountain views AND lake views, Canyon Lake in Arizona is an amazing option for your engagement photos. Being an Arizona wedding photographer allows me to explore and find some sick locations for my couples and this one is still a favorite!
It was a perfect March day for Lauren and Brad’s engagement photos at the picturesque Canyon Lake in Arizona. Just 45 minutes outside of Phoenix this is a desert oasis with stunning mountain views and a gorgeous lake. The overcast sky gave such beautiful contrast with the mountains and the sunset was to die for! We all met up at Goldfield ghost town and then we took the road up to Canyon Lake to get some epic mountain views and also some photos with the water in the background! I will say the road is extremely windy so be prepared if you get car sick easily.
Working with Lauren and Brad was amazing! They are so adventurous and in love and the day flowed so beautifully. I love whenever couples do engagement sessions before their wedding because I feel like it helps them get so much more comfortable in front of the camera! This makes capturing those candid, natural moments at your wedding 10x easier. Not only that but it also allows you to get to know your photographer better! By the time your big day arrives, you’ll feel like it’s just your bestie taking pictures, making the experience all the more enjoyable.
Whether you’re an Arizona local or just love the look of the desert or Canyon Lake, let’s make some magic happen! Engagement pictures are a great way to celebrate this time in your life and I would love to capture that moment for you. I travel all over Arizona for my couples and have some amazing engagement photo location ideas up my sleeve! Contact me today to get the party started! I can’t wait to meet you.
