Jade’s Bachelorette Party in Scottsdale

Their relationship began with a simple bet — If Bryant won, he’d take Miaya on a date. If Miaya won, she’ take Bryant on a date. They both took a chance and ended up on a date with the person they were going to marry. I saw them together for the first time at their […]

Miaya and Bryant’s Wedding Day | Estrella Vista Reception Center | Phoenix, AZ

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!

Three Tips for a Stress-Free Wedding Day!

One of my favorite parts of being a wedding photographer is when I get to photograph weddings in a new place! So, you can imagine my excitement when I found out I would be photographing Katie and Adam’s wedding at the LDS Temple in Phoenix! However, the perfection of this day went far beyond their location!

Their marriage created an atmosphere that radiated excitement. From the moment the doors of the temple opened, everyone knew the two of them were so ready to be married. When they came out, they had the biggest smiles, Adam proudly raised his arm in the air and their families cheered ecstatically!

Phoenix Arizona Temple Wedding | Katie & Adam

The first time I heard from Zach, he told me he was serving in the Marines. He wrote he was briefly returning to Arizona from North Carolina to his girlfriend of 3 1/2 years, Taylor. They wanted to have a session done while he was home before returning to the east coast, which just about made my heart melt.

Taylor & Zach’s Whimsical Desert Session

SO. When I was attending NAU, there would often be questions in my photography classes that were like, “WHAT KIND OF PHOTOGRAPHY CAREER DO YOU WANT?” And, “HOW ARE YOU GOING TO ACHIEVE THIS GOAL?” …Except maybe it wasn’t as dramatic or in all caps, but that’s how I read it because I decided early on I wanted to pursue wedding photography, but literally had no idea how accomplish it. I didn’t have much of a wedding portfolio, I didn’t have a website and my Instagram was all over the place. So, with alllll those lovely odds in my favor, I had to figure out a plan to help me accomplish my dream.

Holy WOW. I don’t think there’s a word that can actually describe just how BEAUTIFUL these two people are! Tiffany and Levi are serious relationship goals. When we arrived to our engagement shoot location, I think it took me a solid five minutes before I could pick my jaw up from how stunning they were! Everything about them was SO on point, whether it was their outfits, the sweetest interactions they exchanged or simply how hilarious they were (I don’t think I stopped wiping away tears from laughing the entire time).
