To say that this shoot started a little rocky would be a bit of an understatement! This little sweetie had missed her nap, so photos were the last thing she wanted to do. She wouldn’t even look at me for about the first 30 minutes. Luckily, I have a toddler…..I don’t break easily. And by the last 10 minutes of her shoot, she really warmed up to me! ;)

m + j engagement

This engagement session was taken right as the monsoons were starting to make their appearance here in northern AZ. I feared we might get rained out but luckily the storms held off and the monsoon conditions created the best light for this session though! We got all the lighting in one session….dark and moody, to light and hazy, and then finally bright and pure magic. There was a price to pay for this light though and it was my makeup melting off my face and onto the back of my camera. :)

rogers wedding

It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.

richards wedding

Small, backyard celebrations have officially become my favorite. Doesn’t hurt that with this one every detail was so beautiful, and the couple are actually good friends of ours. Plus, holy crap are they photogenic together! And as an added bonus….man can they dance! Gotta love a cowboy wedding. ;)

t + t engagement

This bride to-be texted me prior to their session to warn me that they weren’t photogenic….at all. The second I saw them pull up, I new she had lied. ;) These two were so fun and interactive, they were a blast to work with. Combine that with a perfect country backdrop….I’m in love with the results.

l + j engagement

I love couples that are able to have fun and interact in front of the camera….which definitely isn’t the easiest to do! These two nailed it though. I can’t wait for their November wedding!

johnston wedding

We unfortunately had crazy to winds to contend with on this sweet couple’s big day…..welcome to spring in the southwest. We made it work though, and I’m so happy with the way the photos turned out! And on a side-note, can we all take a second to appreciate how photogenic the bride’s horse is!?! I mean come on….
