Central Phoenix Engagement Session | Phoenix, Arizona | Arizona Engagement Photographer

Papago Park is one of the coolest places – it’s filled with palm trees, a pond, cacti and a red rock mountain. Each of those things made it the perfect spot for Joe and Holly’s Central Phoenix engagement session! I had such a blast meeting up with them while they were in town from Kansas City! Holly and Joe are both from the same small town and knew of each other, but coincidentally met in 2015 while she was living in LA and he was living in Phoenix! Here’s how Joe proposed:

“I was actually so sick with a sinus infection IN JULY and I didn’t want to make the trip but he insisted so we did. It was very sweet, we were at our hotel and I was packing up my bag for the day and he was very casual about it. I knew it was real because I’m sure the entire night before I was snoring and super gross because of how sick I was. He proposed at our hotel room before we went and had the best time at the zoo. We both love zoos we try to visit them everywhere we go, so while on a trip to the Omaha zoo in Nebraska this past July he asked me to marry him. we’ve been together for over 3 years now, and it will be 4 and a half when we get married”

Joe is a chef, so they like to spend a lot of their free time cooking, and date nights are usually spent eating great food and exploring new places in the city. They have two small dogs, a pug named Homer and a terrier mix named Millie. They currently live in Kansas City Missouri, but are moving back to Phoenix in the fall of 2019! 

Since they both used to live in Arizona when they were growing up, it was fun to talk about different things that they liked doing when they lived here. It’s safe to say that I’m beyond stoked for their 2020 wedding day!

Cheers!

Allison
