This past Sunday, I got to meet Jen and Andrew for the first time in person. I’m always excited to meet my couples face to face, especially when I get to photograph them. I get to learn so much more about them and finally get to put faces to the people I’ve been doing so much communicating with! They both arrived just in time to begin a sunset sessionRead More

I don’t know if it was the horses, the water, getting to explore, or the promise of a giant chocolate shake but whatever it was, she let Mommy capture her in all of her 5 year old glory!

From dancing in the middle of the road to snuggling in the tall grass, to kisses on the rocks… It was seriously magical!

Rooted deep in their faith and bounded tightly by love, are Richard and Alysha. These two were made for each other! They traveled up to Flagstaff to the beautiful Riordan Mansion along with close family and friends all there to watch them come together finally as husband and wife.Read More
I always encourage my brides and grooms to do their included engagement session because it really gives us a chance to get to know one another and get comfortable shooting together. That way, everyone knows what to expect on the actual wedding day. And let me tell you, I was stoked to find that Alysha and Richard were the ideal couple to photograph! They were so playful and fun! I think when two people are so in love, it must just read that way on camera, because it sure did on mine!Read More
My Saturday was full that day. I was photographing a wedding until the early evening but when Night Lights Event contacted me, asking if I wanted to come and photograph at their event for them, I could not pass up the opportunity!Read More
I had been watching the weather all week and on January 20th, I did not expect to see snow as I drove up to Flagstaff. But as I got higher into the mountains though, I started to see it… Snow was all over! And as I pulled into the Chapel of the Holy Dove, this adorable little chapel covered in snow, I thought, there couldn’t be a more perfect setting for two beautiful souls to renew their vows to each other.Read More
If there were ever two people meant to be married it would be Garret & Rochelle. Upon meeting them, you will see that their attraction and love for one another is simply undeniable. Rochelle has one of the largest images of Garret in her room and I just had to smile every time I glanced up at it. She loves her man! And as you will see in the photos, Garret adores her just the same too.Read More
I was so excited when I received a message about photographing these two. I was asked if I could come to Tucson and do their wedding photos prior to their elopement. Even better?? We traveled to beautiful Mt. Lemmon which could not have been a more perfect setting for them! We stayed down in the trees which was exactly the look they were wanting. It gave us privacy and great light! This couple was so easy and fun to work with and together they looked straight out of a styled session. I loved her bouquet that she handmade herself and those rings… Every man’s ring should have a little bling!Read More
Oh sweet Carolyn! It took a bit to warm her up and when she did it was pure magic! This girl right here has it all... A whole lot of brains to match all that beauty!Read More
Say hello to Ashlee, a beautiful person both inside and out, that I had the pleasure of meeting last month for her graduation session. This month, she is all set to graduate with a degree in social work and I just have a good feeling that she is going to make a big of difference in a lot of people's lives.
It was my first time getting to photograph on the ASU campus at Old Main and I had such great time. It really is a beautiful place for taking photos! Ashlee made it so much fun and was so easy to work with. She really was a great model! She brought along her husband Kyle for the session and I grabbed a couple of photographs of the two lovebirds to celebrate in her accomplishment.
Congratulations Ashlee!!! I know your mother is looking down on you with so much love and pride and I really am honored to have met you. May you have all the success in the world my dear!
