When it comes to Instagram success, you might say that I took the long way there!

Davis is a driven athlete, a handsome dude and the younger brother of one of our past seniors. We also loved creating his family’s holiday portrait sessions last year.

“Whatever our souls are made of, his and mine are the same.” – Emily Bronte Madie and Brent’s sunset engagement photos took place in the dreamy mountains of the McDowell Sonoran Preserve in Scottsdale, Arizona.
