Wow, June absolutely flew by, but one of the highlights for me was photographing Lakin and Jasmyne’s engagement portraits at sunrise in Sedona! We originally planned this session for April, but due to ice and snow, we decided to postpone—and I’m so glad we did! The timing turned out to be perfect, allowing us to capture the stunning beauty of Sedona’s landscape.

Zach and Mai met for their first date in a mall food court back in their hometown. Mai said she was nervous walking up to him, but that Zach almost immediately made her feel like he was someone she had known personally for years. They had an immediate connection, which has only grown and flourished […]

Zach & Mai’s Destination Wedding at Hyatt Ziva in Puerto Vallarta

I met Brooke and Alex last October when I traveled to Grand Rapids to capture their engagement portraits. Through the planning process, I knew they were going to be amazing even before I arrived. We had talked about expectations of the area, what the weather would be like — OH and that they wanted to bring pizza & burritos to their session!

When Kelsey and Daniel asked if I wanted to travel to Washington to photograph their wedding, I nearly jumped with excitement. Not only was I excited to travel to the Pacific Northwest for the first time, but I was stoked to be photographing these two and all the wonderful things their wedding day would hold. Being a desert dweller, I immediately started imagining  how lovely the location would be and how elegant the bridal party would look against all the greenery.

But, guys, this wedding exceeded all the expectations I had in every possible way.

Kelsey & Daniel | Destination Wedding at Tin Roof Barn | White Salmon, Washington

Tiffany and Levi are people you fall instantly in love with. When you talk to them for the first time, you are immediately greeted with genuine kindness. They ask questions, make you feel important and the two big smiles you were initially met with never fade. When you leave, you feel like you’ve talked to two friends you’ve known for ages even if it was a conversation that only lasted an hour! 

The first time I captured their relationship for their engagement portraits, I couldn’t believe how compassionate and respectful they were. Not only to me, but toward one other. I admired how one moment would be engulfed in passionate laughter while the next would be filled with soft intimacy. Their relationship is a perfect balance and witnessing it was absolutely magical!

While Zach and Emily were going to school in Flagstaff, Arizona, they were also planning their wedding for a beautiful summer day in Corona, California. They may have planning from a state away, but everything came together SO perfectly!
