Are you planning to theme your engagement shoot? Our couple today, Amanda and Derrick, worked with their photographers, Mindi and Rich at Photography by Verdi to create a fun and unusual theme for their shoot. The couple wanted their images to look like they had just came across a deserted ghost town in the middle of Arizona! Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi Quirky desert engagement shoot by Photography by Verdi

Cleator is in fact a real ghost town in Arizona and was established in 1864 as a placer gold mining site. Cleator’s population fell in the 1920s as mining in the area declined and the town was put up for sale by James Cleator in April 1949. It then had about 60 residents. James P. Cleator’s son Thomas bought the town and lived there until his death in 1996. He kept the small bar open most of the years he lived there. After his death everything was inherited by his sister Eleanor and her son. The bar is still open and a favorite stop along the dusty road for recreational ATV drivers and weekend tourists.

It’s a first for us to share such an unusual engagement session but wow, how breathtaking are the views! We may not have many deserts in Ireland, but this type of shoot could easily be recreated with an Irish twist, think bog land and the rolling hills of our country.
