This definitely goes in the books as one of my favorite engagement shoots to date. Not only was the couple gorgeous, they were so easy to work with. They had me pick the location (they’d never even seen it), and they had no problem hiking on the boulders in dress attire or standing at the base of a tree we were all allergic to. The results were definitely worth the sneezes the next day. Can’t wait for their wedding next year!
Give me all the desert maternity sessions please! These two parents to-be are expecting their first little babe in a few short weeks, and they seriously couldn’t be sweeter. Their little guy is going to be one lucky and loved babe!
Rarely do the words “glam” and “9 months pregnant” go together….but they definitely do with this lovely lady! This desert maternity shoot was so dang fun….and the results are so beautiful. The saguaros….that light….the gorgeous gal…it will be a hard one to beat!
This wedding marked the end of my 2018 wedding season….and what a lovely finish it was. The ceremony took place at a gorgeous historic cathedral in downtown Tucson and the reception was held at the nearby JW Marriott Starr Pass, with the most stunning desert backdrop. At the risk of betraying my northern roots….there’s nothing quite like that soft desert light. ❤
This wedding finished out the lovely Van Dickson Ranch’s wedding season; and what a beautiful wedding to end on. The weather was perfect, the couple was the absolute sweetest, and every detail was gorgeous.
If you were to ask me to dream up a wedding to photograph, it would probably look something like this. I met this lovely couple for an engagement session in AZ, and they told me about their wedding the following year taking place cliff-side in California. I remember thinking how lucky their photographer was gonna be; and then a few months later they asked if I’d be willing to travel. Needless to say they didn’t have to twist my arm. The stunning cliffs of Big Sur, CA provided the perfect setting for this gorgeous wedding….from the beautiful resort, to the flowers, to the accessories, not a detail was overlooked. If anyone else wants to have a cliff-side wedding, please sign me up.
One of the most photogenic families around! I look forward to taking their photos every year….not just because they’re good friends, but mainly because they’re so adorable. And yes that’s my son making an appearance in their family photos. Haha. Meh.
This beautiful autumn wedding was definitely planned with their guests in mind. From the lovely venue, to having the delicious Rosa’s Italian restaurant cater the buffet, to having a donut bar in lieu of a cake…..I definitely wasn’t complaining. It was such an enjoyable wedding to shoot!
I really have grown to love the desert…..I just wish it was a little cooler. ;) Even with the 104 degree temps….this was such a fun wedding to shoot! The bride wanted to make sure their fur babies were involved in their big day, so she rode to the aisle on her horse; and their two doggies made an appearance in the bridal party. The kind of stuff wedding photographers dream of. Plus it never hurts when the couple is wildly attractive and some of the nicest people around. Congrats Mike and Kasey!
This couple had to deal with every bride and groom’s nightmare…..their original photographer had to cancel on them 10 days prior to their wedding. 10 days. As luck would have it, I was scheduled to be in the area the weekend before and was able to extend my trip to capture their big day. I’m so glad it worked out because these two were so great to work with….and not to mention their wedding was drop dead gorgeous….
