Jolene and Tyler have been married for six years and are two of the most wonderful people. We celebrated their marriage by traveling to Scorpion Gulch at South Mountain for a special anniversary session. Their portraits couldn’t have been more perfect with the surrounding mountains, cobblestone structures and, most importantly, the outward devotion they have […]

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 […]

Oh, my goodness. Throughout Kelsey & Daniel’s engagement session I found myself either:
A) Completely obsessed with how wonderfully they complimented one another. The way they smiled, laughed and played made abundantly clear the love, care, and compassion they’ve shared together over the last five years.
B) Straight up laughing to the point of tears. These two are a hilarious duo that are filled with so much light and amazing silliness. It was seriously impossible for me to stop smiling the entireeee time!

One of the best parts of my job is being able to work with people as amazing as Czarina and Michael! These two are the sweetest and have an overwhelming amount of love & respect for one another. I loved seeing how excited Czarina would get to kiss Michael or how much they would make each other laugh nonstop! Their relationship is filled with genuine compassion and even though their wedding is a year away, I mayyyy already have a countdown going for when I get to capture them together as husband and wife!

The first time I saw them together was in high school. They brought so much happiness to their friends and anyone that saw them knew how much they admired one another. Since then, they’ve attended college, pursued careers, traveled to Disneyland (a lottttt) and experienced huge milestones together. That’s why when they asked me to capture their wedding, I knew it was going to be special.
Adam and Lauren planned a wedding that simply celebrated the love they’ve shared over the past six years. It was different from other weddings – They invited 20 guests, didn’t have a bridal party and created their own floral arrangements. And. It. Turned. Out. Stunning! Every thing about their wedding embraced the love these two wonderful people share and the happiness from their loved ones that they were finally coming together as husband and wife!

Hi, friends! Since we’re getting close to the end of the week, I’m getting ready to head in to my sixth wedding weekend in a row! When I first started photographing weddings, I dreamed of shooting every weekend I could, but completely underestimated how much energy it would take! Weddings take a ton of work since you’re constantly going physically and mentally. You’re working nonstop anywhere between 6-12 hours and basically don’t catch a break until later in the evening!
It can get pretty overwhelming, but there are things you can start implementing in your daily life to prevent having major burn out during a busy wedding season! With all the craziness going on, it’s important for you to come to each wedding feeling as relaxed & refreshed as possible!

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!

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!

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.
