June and Rob’s Scottsdale engagement session

Scottsdale engagement session photographer

My plan for June and Rob’s engagement session was to talk and walk and laugh and maybe a little coffee too. I really enjoy letting the light and scenery tell me where to photograph and June and Rob made the afternoon a joy. A warm November day we explored around Scottsdale’s back alleyways and waterfront for the natural portrait photo shoot. I can’t wait for their wedding next year!

Jerra and Jack’s Autumn inspired maternity session

Phoenix Arizona maternity photographer

I love how Jerra and Jack (and their darling Chubbs) maternity session turned out. The goal was to find a little bit of fall colors, which let me tell you is not easy in Phoenix in November when it’s still in the high 80s outside! At one point during the session Jack jokingly commented that Jerra was looking rather “regal” while we were taking pictures, and looking at the images now I would say that is the perfect description. Something about the look in her eyes and the way Jerra holds herself, regal and confident and glowing. Other than seeing these two lovely people again I was honestly most looking forward to meeting Chubbs. If you know me you know I love flat faced dogs and one day I hope to have a Frenchie to call my own!

Emilie and Tyler’s backyard wedding

Arizona backyard wedding

It seems like Emilie and Tyler have known and loved each other forever. I liked how they had pictures from high school together, all dressed up for a formal dance, as decoration at the wedding. Their backyard wedding was held at Emilie’s grandmother’s beautiful home. The wedding was intimate and full of joy, friends and family. Clearly best friends, Emilie and Tyler couldn’t have seemed happier of more in love. Congratulations!

Michelle and Matt’s Gainey Ranch Golf Club wedding- Scottsdale, Arizona

Gainey Ranch Golf Club wedding photography

Classic romance with a burst of fireworks would be a good way to describe Michelle and Matt’s wedding. Matt got ready at his parent’s home in Scottsdale and I really enjoyed the laid back and family oriented atmosphere. If you see a few familiar faces in these pictures it is because I was lucky enough to photograph Michelle’s brother’s wedding a couple years ago (click here to see that magical day). The ceremony was at Brophy Chapel in Phoenix with the reception taking place at Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale. I love night photography and the challenge of creating unique images in low light situations so I really had fun with Michelle and Matt doing some post-sunset portraits at the golf club. The big surprise of the evening was up close and personal fireworks show. Congratulations Michelle and Matt, two best friends in love and now married!
