Alys and Jun are one of those couples who just make it work… regardless of who lives in what city when!
They met in school while they were both living in Arizona, but Jun recently moved to New York… so very far far away from his sweetheart!
They didn’t let that stop them though! Alys travels to New York about every 3 weeks to see him and as soon as she’s done with school she’s moving out there permanently to join him. Ah, true love finds a way!
Jun is currently doing his residency so he has very little time off to visit Alys in AZ, so when he got the chance to come see her, she knew she had to make the most of the visit so she called us to come capture some of their precious time together!
Since this is their last hurrah with the Southwest, we wanted to find a way to incorporate some desert themes into the photos.
We ended up settling on doing a few photos at Scottsdale Civic Center Park to capture a little bit of the southwest feel that’s around the city…
…before heading out to Camelback mountain to get the real live desert in the photos…
From Alys’s emails we could tell that she seemed pretty cute and energetic. And yet we were still surprised to find out just how fun and hilarious the two of them were… as individuals and then even more so as a couple!
We had a blast wandering around with them!
When we passed by a new/old cider mill, they decided they wanted to go in and have a rootbeer float…
…when we stood still for more than 2 seconds at a time, Jun decided it was time to pick Alys up…
…when we stopped near a giant boot, what else is there to do but sit on it for a picture?!
Seriously, they were a ton of fun! Posing wasn’t even an option for them since what they did naturally was the stuff that great pictures are made out of anyways!
Top off their cute interactions together with a little bit of desert charm and we’ve got ourselves the perfect “Adios Arizona” photo session!
Alys and Jun, I hope your West coast to East coast transition goes super smoothly and that you find a ton of things out there that you absolutely love doing together (and I hope you are able to find the time to do them in!).
We really enjoyed working with you guys and we hope your big apple future holds amazing things for you two! Good luck!
