Jordan and I met almost two years ago in a fitness competition. You couldn’t miss him because he was the guy cheering people on, handing out high-fives and making sure he knew everyone’s name. We usually talked about favorite hikes, places to vacation and photography, but then one day the conversation shifted to Stacey, and […]

We met Kayt and Will at one of our favorite weddings last year when Samantha and Austin got married. We immediately fell in love with these two. They have an effortless friendship to them, laced with witty commentary and thoughtfulness for each other. Kayt and Will met when their best friends introduced them at a […]

When we first sat down with Alex to talk about her wedding day, one of the things that struck us was how she would light up talking about Tyler. And as she shared the story of how he surprised her with a proposal on their favorite holiday of Halloween, planning each detail (they were zombie […]

“We believe in a love that withstands time and trends.” We have been sharing our core beliefs over on Instagram and the website for sometime, but meeting this couple really put this into perspective. Victorya and Gabe don’t have many memories that don’t include each other. Growing up together, their love has had years to […]

Yesterday on Instagram, I shared a photo of mother adjusting her daughter’s veil under the watchful eye of an heirloom mirror that had seen an earlier bride, this same mother, fixing her veil with her own mother looking on. What a powerful legacy marriage invites us into. That moment was a defining moment for me […]

Sometimes we just have to sit back and be amazed at how God works to bring new people into our lives. This Mount Lemmon engagement session began when Manny saw a photo of him and his fiancé from Jessica and Abdul‘s wedding that I photographed back in April. That conversation led to this engagement session just a couple weeks […]

Last week I got to spend some time with this amazing couple. We first met Sarah when photographing her sister’s wedding this past February, and just fell in love with her bubbly personality!  Sarah and Nick met while dancing one night after Nick moved to to Flagstaff to train as a competitive long distance runner. Speaking of […]

Friends….I am still giddy over this session from our trip last month out to Florida. I have two words for you. Spanish. Moss. Oh my heart! The beauty that comes from seeing these amazing trees just dripping from moss (I learned it was an air plant! Who knew?) that covered the grounds of the Bok […]

Of friends! This spring has been so busy! I am long overdue in sharing this beautiful desert session with you. Miranda and Jonathan were out visiting Tucson, during one of the most beautiful times of the year. Spring in the desert is incredible, there were wildflowers everywhere we turned. I think Tucson was showing off […]

Last Sunday, we headed up to meet Sara and Nick at Phoenix’s historic Wrigley Mansion.  This was my first visit to the mansion, but it wont be my last! With city views and whitewashed walled surrounded by lush gardens, this venue is a new favorite! Sara posted the cutest photo on Super Bowl Sunday of […]

ALWAYS CLASSIC. ON THE DAILY.
