These two had a big wedding planned on the beach in Mexico, but as not all family could make that celebration, they decided to do another small ceremony in the pines here in Prescott. It was simple, intimate, and so dang beautiful. Nothing against the beaches of Mexico…but this would be pretty hard to beat.
Fall is my favorite for multiple reasons, but one of the biggies is the beautiful buttery light it provides. The setting was nothing short of dreamy for this sweet maternity session. And like normal, their fur baby Maggie stole the show. I’ve never seen a Lab hesitant to walk in tall grass, but once she warmed up to the idea, there was no stopping her. 😂 Sticks had to be thrown really far to keep her out of the shot.
We had a typical early fall day in the southwest for these two…..insanely windy! Had it not been that they were driving up from the valley to do the engagement session, we would have definitely rescheduled. Luckily these two were insanely photogenic, so they would have looked good in any conditions. We did a combination of hiding from the wind, and then just embracing….and honestly I’m a little partial to the dramatic flare it adds.
It was less than a year and a half ago that I was capturing this lovely couple’s wedding, and now they’ve added a precious baby girl to the family. These two are some of my favorite people and I’m so happy for them and their perfect little gomper. :)
I was pretty excited when Danny said he needed some photos for his album that’s being released. I threw all sorts of ideas at him and despite it being early morning, he still rolled with them all. Such a talent, and an even better guy.
When you get the chance to do a bridal shoot with a gorgeous horse involved, you don’t hesitate. How Kasey rode in that dress is beyond me….but I’m so glad she did!
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.
I adore this couple. I did small shoot for them in the spring and they were seriously the sweetest. When Sam contacted me that he wanted to do an engagement shoot when they were visiting again this fall, I was so excited! And a little nervous as I didn’t want to spoil any surprises. Seriously though….what guy thinks ahead enough and books the engagement shoot for their trip, prior to proposing?! I’m so glad he did because these two are so stinkin’ beautiful together….
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!
One of my favorite things as a photographer to be able to watch families grow. I’ve known this sweet family for a few years now, so it was so fun to be able to do a fall family session with their gorgeous little girls. The leaves were perfect….the day was gorgeous….and the family was adorable. :)
