Now that you're engaged (congrats, btw), it's time to think about engagement photos.
When you start calling photographers, it's nice to have a few spots in mind, especially if there's a specific place that's meaningful to you. Make sure to let your photographer suggest his or her fave spots, too.
We spoke to Chris Richards, a well known Tucson wedding photographer, and got his input on some of his favorite spots.
P.S. Make sure and check out our wedding guide to find your perfect photographer, DJ, venue and all the things you need to plan your big day.
Windy point is classic, with great views, but can be crowded — and be careful of the edge!
Note: This spot is about 14 miles up Mount Lemmon Highway. You'll know you're there when you see lots of rocks, parking and bathrooms.
University of Arizona campus
The UA campus is lovely and has special significance for a lot of people — Old Main is even fairly quiet now that the students are on break.
Downtown has a funky vibe and a bunch of murals. I’d avoid it at rush hour though, as the traffic backs up and makes for an audience to your photo session.
Barrio Viejo and A Mountain
Barrio Viejo is also a classic spot with the colorful adobe doorways, but it lacks a good view of sunset, so go earlier and then head up to A mountain for the sunset there. The stone gazebo is amazing if you can get it to yourself.
Note: Barrio Viejo is the neighborhood framed by I-10, Cushing Street, South Sixth Avenue and West 18th Street.
