“It’s perfect for a flying honeymoon, they say. Come fly with me, let’s fly, let’s fly away.”
Whether she was embarking on a new adventure or returning home from one, airports have always left an excitement in Brittany’s heart that she couldn’t describe. Especially when she didn’t have to say goodbye to him, but squeeze his hand as the floated into the air, ears popping and adrenaline rushing. They walked through the airport, the outlines of planes hiding in the grey carpet, excited for their trip to Kansas to witness two friends tie the knot. Little did she know, she would be doing the same much sooner than she imagined. And there, in the middle of Sky Harbor, Robert pulled a very special ring out of his pocket, straight from the approving eyes of her father who happens to be a jeweler. And so, the first of many journeys in their lives began, all before they even stepped onto the runway.
Months later, our trip began driving out into the desert in Fountain Hills, country music playing as we chatted about the dusty purple and grey goodness that will be their wedding. We hiked down the dusty cliff (Robert carried Brittany on his back) and into the riverbed with smooth stones and white shells beneath our feet. This small, secluded beach was the perfectly private backdrop for our session, and our laughter echoed off of the canyon walls. Which made me laugh even more… We sank our heels into the soft moss that covered the ground and found our own little desert oasis that seemed too perfect to be real. I could not be more thankful to have met these two, who are so genuine and kind, and their friendship means the world to me. Robert and Brittany, I cannot wait to witness you two say your vows and embark on yet another one of life’s incredible journeys. You two are so beautiful together, and always remember that in life, it’s not about where you go. It’s about who goes with you.
