John and I met in Vegas at a music festival in 2012. My friend had a mutual friend with one of John’s friends. At the time I was living in Chicago and John in Tucson. We didn’t keep in touch after we met in Vegas until a few months later when I decided to move to California. I remembered meeting John and knew he worked at Enterprise, so I Facebook messaged him asking if he could get me a discount on a car while I was in LA for interviews. John was going to be in San Diego for a friend’s birthday Friday of the weekend I was in LA. He decided to come to LA that Saturday to go to a concert with me and my cousin. We became friends after that and kept in touch while I was living in Chicago. When I moved to LA, John came to visit frequently to go concerts and we eventually became more than friends and dated long distance for 2 years. In 2014 John got a job in Phoenix and I moved to Phoenix shortly after that. John proposed in August 2016 while we were on a hiking and camping trip with our friends at Zion National Park.
I am so looking forward to photographing this beautiful couples wedding in October!

This wedding was amazing! Everything about it was perfect. Hailey and Austin were married at the Oakmont in Flagstaff. Yes, it rained almost all the way up until the ceremony started but then it stopped and there was this beautiful cloud cover followed by a peak a boo sun. Hailey and Austins details were simple, with purple and boots! Hailey's bouquet was lavender, just lavender, I mean how cool is that. Lets talk about the reception for just a second, it was like being at Denim and Diamonds. Everyone knew how to country dance, everyone. There were so many cute dresses and boots dancing on the dance floor. Hailey and Austin had a fun crowd and I think everyone stayed until the very end. A good start for this sweet couple that met through a mutual friend while Austin was attending NAU. Wishing Hailey and Austin a lifetime of adventure and love!
My first wedding of 2014 was with Nicole and Chad at Encanto Park Clubhouse. This wedding was so sweet with fabulous details. I mean really fabulous details, from the location, to the bridesmaids attire and reception details. If you follow my blog regularly you know I usually do not post to many detail shots, I always photograph them, I just do not post them. For this post I am posting more then average because they were just so fun. Thank you so much Nicole and Chad for allowing me to capture your sweet wedding. It was such a great way to start 2014.
Do you know this year many of my friends children will be getting married. Does that make me older or wiser! I prefer wiser and lets ad more experienced. I have been photographing weddings for a very long time, long time, ha! I will say honestly, I mean with all honestly I still love it, if not more then when I started. Still growing, experimenting, learning. This lovely couple is Ashley and Keafer. Ashley was about 5 when I first met her. Her parents were my first neighbors when I moved to Arizona in 1992. We became fast friends, Ashley's parents Don and Martie and I instantly. I loved living next door to them. Ashley use to babysit my boys too. I remember feeling so honored to photograph Ashley's senior pictures, man she is a beauty! Now I get to photograph her wedding in December. I really enjoyed getting to know Keafer while photographing their engagement pictures. They seem to complement each other perfectly. I would like to share with you Ashley and Kea…
