What can I say… Kathya and Henry were an absolute JOY to work with during their Arizona desert engagement session. Do they not have the most contagious smiles?? You can feel the genuine laughter just looking at that first photo! It is a fun challenge for me to get a couple to relax and look […]

Sweethearts

They’ve known each other for 14 years. This past December Danny proposed to Grace on a hike on the top of the McDowell mountains in Phoenix. And last week I had the distinct pleasure of photographing the first them the first time they’ve ever been in front of the camera together. Squinched noses and cheek […]

Sweethearts

Many of Ryan and Cassidy’s guests traveled in from all over the country, so they showed off our beautiful Tucson desert in the springtime at their laid-back Oasis at Wild Horse Ranch wedding celebration. Which was exactly why we went to the Saguaro National Park for the sweetheart session so they had lots of desert photos […]

Family has always been important to me. I come from a family of 7 children, forged through a blended family. When my sister became paralyzed at the age of 14, I saw two separate families come together in love for her and for the relationships we all share as siblings. Facing a fire of tragedy […]

From My Heart

Are Chanel and Eddie not the cutest?! You can immediately see their genuine connection and how they make each other smile. I loved shooting this Tucson Desert Engagement Session in the wash behind the house where she grew up, and the house wherein less than 3 weeks they will be pledging their marriage vows to one another. […]

You wear every hat: coordinator, accountant, graphic designer, seamstress, marriage therapist, boutonniere expert, chauffeur, mediator, writer, social media manager, life coach, […]

The Engagement Session (a.k.a. a Sweetheart Session) is one of my favorite parts of our time together because it gives you both a chance to be in front of my camera before you get married, which is going to make your wedding day experience feel so smooth, seamless and comfortable. Not only that, but we […]

Luke’s proposal to Dominique is one to remember! “He proposed to me on Christmas Eve…since it was cold and a storm was coming, he decided to organize a day for just us up on Mt. Lemmon. Luke “last minute” suggested to bring my camera so we could take some cute couple photos and me, being […]

These Tucson engagement photos were SO fun to photograph, and if you don’t know Ryan and Cassidy’s story you are in for a treat! They have actually known each other since they were newborns, he was only 1 and a half and she was just 4 months old, when their fathers shared a cubical at Raytheon. Their families […]

You know when it’s almost fate that someone comes into your life? That’s how I feel about Brittany and John. Ever since their sweetheart session, I have had the pleasure of getting to know their hearts, their strengths and struggles, their likes and dislikes, and see their genuine love for not only each other but their contagious joy […]

I remember talking with Monica at our consultation earlier this Spring and she was laying out the vision she had for their wedding, from the dress to the colors, and all about the florals and decor that his mother would be creating. And then, when we spoke again at their sweetheart session, she laughed and […]

This time last year, we went for hike up on Mt. Lemmon for Eric and Mandi’s sweetheart session where we encountered a stunning backdrop of golden and orange foliage. And since fall is their favorite season of the year, it was only fitting that their wedding palette also be composed of crimson red, burnt orange, and sunflower yellow […]
