Let's Talk About TTD

Lets talk about Trash The Dress, I think it should be called something else for the dress doesn't really get trashed.  Maybe a little dirty or dusty.  Unless of course you are going into the ocean.  Then you just rinse off the dress with the hose and drop it off at the dry cleaners.  Can I just say that I LOVE doing this kind of shoot.  Maybe I will re title it to WDF (Wedding Dress Fun).  They are so much fun because the bride is so relaxed, you get to pick a fun out of the ordinary location and the photographer is under no time limit or any concerns of keeping everything neat and pretty.  Do you remember Raeannon, a beautiful past bride?  Let me tell you that we had so much fun doing this WDF.  I feel like I've had a big secret waiting for the right time to do this blog post.  We had such a great time and Raeannon was such a trooper. She is gorgeous and was not afraid to lay down in the dirt which made for great pictures.  Thank you Raeannon!!!

A Little Tradition

Mark and Jennifer a beautiful couple already married, in Hawaii. Mom wanted to have a reception here in town for them. I picked up the couple and we headed out to take some fun formal pictures before the reception. It was only about 108 out on this Sunday afternoon. I say only 108 because the day before it was about 111. What troopers they were, never complained about the heat. We spent about an hour out taking pictures then off to the Great Wall for the festivities. This is one sweet couple, lots of laughs the entire time!! Wishing Mark and Jennifer a lifetime of happiness.

Baseball Fever

A Trash the Dress with Alfonso and Staci! What better day to post this photo session then today the day of the MLB All Star Game, which is being held here at Chase Field in Phoenix. Especially since Alfonso knows a little about baseball being's he is a umpire.

This last image is my favorite from the entire shoot!!

Alfonso and Staci were married this past January. At that time we decided we had to do a Trash the Dress on a baseball field. We had a great time once again. I absolutely adore this couple!! They are so happy with each other, and both have such a fun loving spirit. The only thing that didn't go are way was we couldn't seem to get Staci dirty. She wanted to get dirty and dusty. We tried to kick up some dust but it wasn't happening. Staci slid, laid and rolled around in the dirt, nothing!! Can't say we didn't try. For all you baseball fans out there I hope you enjoy the MLB All Star Game tonight!!

Every year I donate a photo session to Stepping Stones Preschool for their annual Ice Cream Social and Fundraiser. This year the Cross Family won the bid and wanted to take family pictures in Prescott. What a beautiful family they are!! My friend Nancy was kind enough to make the drive to Prescott with me. We had a great time with fun ideas and several different locations. Thank you Cross family!!
