This is the second blog post in my mini-series on the best locations for engagement sessions in Phoenix. In each blog post, I feature one of my favorite locations, highlight what I like about it, and share some of the pictures I've shot at the location. So if you're a couple exploring location options in Phoenix for an engagement session or anniversary session, you will find this mini-series helpful. If you're just joining me, check out part 1 that I posted earlier.
In this post, I am going to feature Old Town Scottsdale as one of the best locations to shoot engagement sessions in Phoenix! Well, we all know and love Old Town Scottsdale for its restaurants, gift shops, artist galleries, and bars. But perhaps, what you may not have realized is that this place is simply a gold mine when it comes to offering diverse photo ideas and backdrops for gorgeous engagement sessions! Let's take a look.

A bit rustic
If you're looking for something that is a bit rustic, Old Town Scottsdale has it covered. There are all kinds of things here - from wagon wheels to wooden beams - that make you feel like you're in the Old West!
But green too!
Then there are areas that are lush green. I always like to make a stop here with my couples to see how the light is falling and we almost always end up making some stunning pictures.
Throw in a bit of character
If you're looking for something with a bit more character, yep, you got that too! There are buildings with unique architecture, walls, and stairs that add a nice touch to the pictures.
And then, there are the fountains that make for some gorgeous backdrops!
Yep, we have all seen the Love sign in one picture or another. I love to let my couples just hang out here and make some beautiful pictures.
So there you have it! This location just keeps on giving! A big part of my goal while shooting sessions with couples - whether an engagement or anniversary session - is to provide them with a diverse array of pictures. I don't like providing my couples a bunch of pictures with same or similar looking backgrounds. I look for variety. And if I can get that diversity in pictures in a relatively small area, I am all for it! With all the different looks it provides, Old Town Scottsdale is an ideal location for photo sessions for couples - great for engagements, anniversary sessions, or just to hang out with your SO and make some gorgeous memories.
