So my best friend Ariel and I love to wander and have impromptu photoshoots. There’s no need for an agenda and we always have a good time pretending to know what we’re doing. While on my stay, we decided to wander the streets of downtown Phoenix and found some hidden gems that we couldn’t resist stopping traffic for.
It’s always fun to preview each shot and see that some of the best pictures are the ones we’re actually saying or doing something ridiculous. We found a magical little movie theatre, apartment complexes, and architectural hotels that we had to stop and take a picture in front of. It’s interesting that we pass through these places daily, but it’s not until you really stop and look, that you appreciate the details of something seemingly ordinary.
This photo diary takes a sarcastic approach that I hope encompasses our light-hearted attempts at capturing our adventure in the city. I love that we don’t take ourselves too seriously and always pick up right where we left off from our last meeting.
This rock garden clearly needed a bit of floral with my dress.

A textured white wall served as the perfect back drop for our LinkedIn profiles. (Below)
Giant net? Not entirely sure of this tornado contraption, but at night it lights up.
If you made it this far, I hope you take the time to appreciate the little quirks of your own town. I’d love to hear what makes your city unique- comment below to share!
Thank you so much for reading and as always,
