Phoenix Location Guide
HERITAGE SQUARE PARK
Heritage Square Park is MY FAVORITE LOCATION! Most of my clients who book here are looking for a location that doesn't look like it was taken in Arizona. The greenery just pops, like who would have thought that these types of plants even grew in Arizona. There are tons of different spots at this location. From the cement walls/stairs onto the brick walls, to the perfect lighting 99% of the time. I will never get over how perfect this location is for my style of photography/videography.

PARKING GARAGE - DOWNTOWN PHOENIX
I know most people wouldn't expect a parking garage to be so beautiful, but WOW let me tell you!! It has become one of my favorite spots in Phoenix. This spot at sunset is absolutely stunning, perfect for fun portraits, adventurous couple sessions, and even family sessions! If you're going for a city vibe, this is the best choice! There is a $6-$12 parking garage fee, but 10000000% worth it!

Western Spirit is actually a Western Art Museum. We won't be going inside for the session because the outside of the museum is artistic too!! The most popular style sessions I do here are boss lady, and power couples vibes. Not only is there cacti on both sides of the museum, but there is one wall that has moss greenery going up to the top of the building. There is even one area that has a natural reflector at certain times of the day. I 100% recommend this location for anyone needing photos for their business.

SKYLINE REGIONAL PARK
Skyline is the perfect spot if you want your photos to have a super deserty vibe. Skyline is pretty West, it's about 10-15 minutes past Goodyear. There is a little valley area covered in beautiful cacti, the sun sets right in between the mountains, and WOW is it beautiful! There are areas at this location for hiking, camping, and there are even horse trails!

Papago Park is basically like a mini Sedona with a bunch of cacti lol. The red rocks are BEAUTIFUL, it creates the perfect desert background. If you're looking for a super deserty golden location, this is the place for you! Papago Park does get insanely busy on weekends, so parking can be kind of crazy. But it is so worth it! Before the session I typically meet up with my clients in the parking lot of the Phoenix Zoo, which is right next to Papago Park. It just makes it a lot easier to find each other, as there are sooooo many turn-offs and parking lots inside the Park.

PHON D SUTTON AT SALT RIVER
Phon D Sutton is BEYOND PERFECT. It is my favorite location to turn on some music and run around in the road for some adventurous-motion-filled photos. It gives the vibe of "We're running off and escaping the world together" UGHHHH such a beautiful spot with so much scenery. It is definitely in my top 3 favorite locations.

WATER USERS AT SALT RIVER
I LOVE shooting at water users. It is a bit far outside of Phoenix, but it is definitely worth the drive. The mountains right behind the river are just so beautiful. There are even areas at this location with tons of cacti, which gives for amazing shots!

Scorpion Gulch sounds terrifying right? It's really not, it used to be an old trading post. It is stunning for Couple sessions, Family Sessions, Maternity, etc. The buildings are so unique, and give such a rustic look in photos.
