Desert Destination Engagement Session with an Urban Twist Christine brought Ryan out to see her hometown of Tucson earlier this month.

Not sharing these […]

Mount Lemmon Engagement Session We first met up with Emily and Aaron back in April. Our plan was to grab a quick coffee after work, and turned into a two-hour visit! Jon and I left feeling like we had just been with old friend. We couldn’t wait to get these two lovebirds in front of our […]

When Tony told me that he had met an incredible woman, I was thrilled for my friend. But, when I met Stephani and saw the joy and kindness that radiated from her I knew that she was more than just incredible. She was the perfect compliment to Tony. Encouraging, thoughtful and adventurous, these two are […]

This Madera Canyon Engagement session was absolutely perfect! Forest, grasslands, and mountain views all in the same location makes for the perfect spot for photos! David and Samantha drove out to meet us on one of the nicest days we had seen in April. The sky was clear and there was the slightest breeze as […]

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 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 […]
