Caitlin and Colin’s Scottsdale sunrise engagement session

Scottsdale wedding and engagement session photographer

Sunrise over Scottsdale was the backdrop for Caitlin and Collin’s recent summer morning engagement session. We virtually had the waterfront to ourselves as the sun rose orange and yellow. I loved meeting their dog who was happy to smile for the camera. Can’t wait for the wedding next year.

Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding

Mountain Shadows Resort wedding photographer

Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding was sleek, modern and elegant. Gina looked like a supermodel straight from the runway in a wedding gown that fit like a glove. They were married in an intimate ceremony on the balcony of the presidential suite at Mountain Shadows Resort with Camelback Mountain looming in the background. A warm and windy summer evening in Scottsdale without a cloud in the sky was just about perfect. Congratulations Gina and William!

Justin and Sarah’s Verrado, Arizona engagement session

Verrado Golf Club wedding and engagement pictures

Justin and Sarah are having their destination wedding in Arizona in the fall so they wanted their engagement pictures to reflect all the beauty the desert has to offer. We scheduled their engagement session for a weekend they were in town visiting from Canada. The hot Arizona day with cloudless skies did not disappoint and made for a perfect backdrop for this adorable couple. Can’t wait for the wedding later this year!

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!

Taylor Upsahl, portrait of an artist

Taylor Upsahl singer songwriter Phoenix Arizona

Taylor Upsahl is a poised and beautiful young woman with a gifted voice and musical legacy. I photographed her for Phoenix Magazine’s May 2017 issue. The indoor images were taken at her home in the living room that also serves as a rehearsal space. I wanted the photos to be intimate and cozy. Music is a family affair, her father has been in touring punk and rock bands since he has 17 and Taylor released her first album at 14. For a second location I wanted the pictures to feel like Phoenix and the desert but in a place that gave Taylor height and purpose and possibility.
