Phoenix wedding photojournalism

Celena and Amber’s wedding day was a celebration of love and unity and joy. The smiles and excitement never let up for a moment, from beginning of the day to final sparkler exit. These two gorgeous women celebrated their families and friends. The wedding day was inclusive and so much fun to be a part of. I love the special relationship both Amber and Celena have with their grandmothers, so many wonderful women at this wedding! Congratulations Amber and Celena, your kindness and love glows both inside and out!

Rob and June’s Boulders Resort & Spa wedding

Scottsdale wedding photographer

June and Rob were married at Promise Rock at the Boulders Resort & Spa in north Scottsdale. It was a fitting location among the boulders for this couple that met and fell in love while rock climbing. They shared a morning wedding with their closest friends and family. Not a cloud in the sky and the Palo Verde trees were in full bloom for the occasion. The wedding ceremony was followed by a relaxed & spectacular seven course brunch in the private garden at the resort. Food was the star of the brunch with each dish more beautiful than the last. Congratulations to Rob and June and your cats!

The wedding day was planned to perfection by Ashlee and Jessica with Modern Grace Events.

Tempe, Arizona family photographer

Tempe Arizona family photographer

I have been photographing this lovely family for many years now, beginning when their oldest boy was a baby! Even though they no longer live in Arizona I still manage to see their growing family once a year for a portrait session. This year, in matching outfits, the girls were simply a riot and I cannot get over how grown up their son is!

Alyssa and Brandon’s Desert Botanical Garden portrait session

Desert Botanical Garden wedding photography

I first met Alyssa and Brandon in 2016 when I photographed their engagement session. We had a fun time photographing in the beautiful Phoenix desert ahead of their Midwest wedding. They got married out of state but contacted me about a post-wedding portrait session back here in Arizona and I jumped at the chance. Although I was not at the wedding it was fun to see Alyssa and Brandon dressed up again, this time for pictures at the Desert Botanical Garden. A perfect blue sky day and wildflowers in bloom made a gorgeous setting. Congratulations (again) to Alyssa and Brandon.

AWESOME! Your photography skills are just incredible. I would just love to see your photography. Each of them will be different may be the filter used or the way it is pictured. I would love to photo shoot with you for my sisters wedding. Hope I could contact you soon. Thanks for sharing every photos. By seeing them even we get some ideas about how a photo should be taken and all.

Samantha and Stephen’s ASU Gammage engagement session

Arizona State University engagement pictures

Samantha and Stephen met while working as undergrads at Gammage Auditorium so when Samantha suggested the theater as a possible engagement picture location I knew we had to make it work. I had the best time photographing in Gammage. I wanted the pictures to highlight Samantha and Stephen’s love story in the iconic setting and put them in the spotlight. After Gammage we walked around the quiet campus on a gorgeous sunny day. I can’t wait for their wedding later in the year!
