Becki & Steve | Engagement | Jerome

I met Becki a few years ago when I was shooting her company’s annual holiday party. She and her friends were a hoot and made the night a lot of fun for me! Sneaking me free drink coupons (which I really didn’t use, but appreciated) and then goofing off during photobooth time. Then I was invited back to shoot last year’s party as well. And that’s where I not only got to see Becki again, but meet her coworker/friend Steve who was visiting from California. They seemed to be a date, even though Becki said they weren’t.

So it wasn’t a surprise at all when she told me earlier this year that they got engaged. I knew right away that I wanted to shoot their wedding no matter what. If you happen to be friends with them on Facebook, you’ll know what I mean. Their public banter back and forth leaves me in stitches most nights.

The engagement shoot was no different. In fact at one point I wondered aloud if they’d already been married for ten years, because the slams and witty retorts were fantastic. I see it as a good sign for these two…they are beyond happy and completely and utterly meant for each other. I think you’ll see that from these photos.

We met up in Jerome and started taking pictures in this hidden away, overgrown courtyard where a local walked by and told us to be careful because of rattlesnakes. We didn’t stay there too long, even if the only thing we fought off were giant grasshoppers.

Here is where Steve is lagging because he took an iPhone photo of some discarded tighty-whiteys….

    Love these! Amazed you were able to handle these two during an entire photo shoot. Can’t wait for the wedding!

    These are amazing. Becki and I have known each other since we were about 8 and in every one of these pictures you captured her and her personality that I have known for all these years. I’m truly excited for the wedding and the magic you work there!
