What do you think of the black background instead of white? Let me know:-)

Matt and Kate

Matt and Kate were married on Jan 23 of this year!! They said their vows at Queen of Peace Catholic Church in Mesa and held the reception at Val Vista Lakes. Kate was so cute while getting ready. She was very cool and calm until it was time to go. I believe her exact words were "I'm super scared". Everything was perfect, no reason to be scared at all. It was a beautiful day even though it was suppose to rain! Kate looked absolutely beautiful and Matt very handsome. Bride's are always happy but Kate was extra happy with lots of giggles. I loved watching the two of them. It is such a wonderful moment when the couple realizes they are Married! Matt and Kate are a super sweet couple and I know they will have many years of happiness...

Some Maternity

My lovely friend Ana needed someone to fill in for her recently on a maternity shoot, for she is swamped. These are some of my favorites. It was a nice change for me.

Fun with Chris and Christina!

I had been looking forward to doing Chris and Christina's engagement pictures, for I knew it would be a fun shoot. When they showed up I was so happy, they looked like they just stepped out of a J. Crew catalog. Now anyone who knows me knows that I love to look at J. Crew for ideas, plus I love the cloths. OK back to Chris and Christina! They are so adorable and just look at how breathtaking Christina is! They will be getting married on March 13 of this year. But get this we are meeting about a week before the wedding to take all the wedding formals. Anywhere we want to go. How exciting. I know. So this first shot is a pose idea from the J. Crew. ;-)
While looking around for a place to take pictures I found a pile of leaves. What a great place for pictures.
This next image has a filter on it called "Vintage 1973" Not sure why that year? Do you like?
This black and white has a eairy feeling to it, don't you think?
Now this is fun stuff. Can't wait for the wedding.

~Brian and Tara from New Years Eve~

I have so many pictures I want to post such as maternity, family and engagement sessions. It has been so busy! Finally I have images from Brian and Tara's New Years Eve wedding bash! It was a great wedding. The wedding was held at the Scottsdale Hilton, a beautiful resort and spa for a wedding. How exciting for Brian and Tara to bring in the New Year as husband and wife. To make it even better all my favorite people were working the wedding with me. Mike Kennedy performed the ceremony flawlessly! Brian and Tara had a smaller intimate group, but that did not slow down the fun at the reception. Juan with AZ Celebrity DJ had them dancing until the clock struck 12:00 am...
Look at how proud Brian looks to be Tara's husband.
I really like this one! It is MIDNIGHT! HAPPY NEW YEAR!

I wish Brian and Tara many more New Year anniversary's! They are a sweet couple and I had a great time bringing in the New Year with them and their friends.
