Multiple locations. Fun outfit changes. Lots of variety. Sam definitely had a vision in mind when we first started talking about her and Dane’s Mt. Lemmon engagement session! The scenic byway through Mount Lemmon, AZ is absolutely beautiful. As the elevation within the Santa Catalina mountains changes, so does the landscape. This allows its visitors […]

Spending time outdoors is something that Breanna and Tony love to do together. Ensuring that Arizona’s iconic saguaros were featured was a top priority. They visited Tucson Mountain Park just a few days prior to their session. Originally, they had selected a different location in Tucson. But after spending a little bit of time there, […]

Sweetwater Wetlands Park summer engagement session in Tucson by Christy Hunter Photography

Finding somewhere that’s lush and green can be pretty difficult to do in the desert. The majority of our rainfall comes over a brief time period– typically from June through September.  Southern Arizona has been fortunate to have an incredible monsoon season this year!

A few weeks ago I got a message from Josh, a coach at Crossfit Sierra Vista where Mike and I workout. Between a sinus infection that wasn’t wanting to go away and getting my second COVID vaccine, I hadn’t been to the gym for about 2 weeks. I thought to myself, “He’s calling to give […]

mountainside engagement session in Tucson desert with labradoodle by Christy Hunter Photography

Megan and Colin knew right away where they wanted to have their engagement session in Tucson. They spend a lot of time outdoors together hiking and exploring new spots. They asked me if I’d be down for a short hike at one of their favorite spots. Bring it on! And guys… they totally brought it! I think I might want all of my sessions to take place mountainside!
