      Santa Catalina Mountains Engagement Session, Tucson | Jackleen Leed Photography

      April 14, 2019 , ADVENTURE SESSION

      This Santa Catalina Mountains engagement session was the perfect way to experience Tucson and Mount Lemmon for the very first time.  I met this wild and sweet couple via a mutual friend and climbing photographer on Instagram and despite my awkward and introverted ways, we immediately hit it off.  They already had a spot picked out for their session near where they had previously rock climbed and though it was a little too chilly to climb (it actually ended up snowing in Tucson a couple days after their session!), it didn’t stop us from adventuring.  And, let me tell you, these guys are no strangers to adventure!  They even rappelled a series of waterfalls from 40-400ft in the Grand Canyon!

      We all met at the trailhead and proceeded up the Arizona Trail to an epic viewpoint.  The hike was filled with stops to dance, laugh, cuddle, and just take in all the beauty.

      I absolutely love all the couples I have the privilege of meeting and working with, but this couple takes the cake.  Both are all about living life to the fullest, embracing spontaneity, and making the time to adventure together.  Probably the best way to illustrate this couple and their relationship is with this super sweet anecdote told by Sarita:

      “Dan surprised me with a trip to Denver- had my boss in on it and even made a fake schedule!  We hiked to a spot we’ve never been to before and ate chocolate and drank wine.  He then took me to another surprise- a romantic cabin in the mountains of Boulder!  Candles everywhere and an indoor jacuzzi with a view that overlooked the mountains and town of Boulder!”

      Seriously, does it get any better than that!?

      Adventure sessions are all about the experience.  The moments and intimacy that you create with your partner  in a setting where you feel comfortable and at ease.  A place where you can be your true selves and really just soak it all in.

      If adventuring is a large component of your relationship, then these sessions are a way to honor and document that part of you while building new experiences together.  And new shared experiences are the foundation for a healthy relationship.  So what are you waiting for?!  Grab your loved one and let’s go on an adventure!
