Throughout his senior session, we talked all about the stuff he likes to cook, what it would be like to be a food photographer and his excitement over the professional-grade oven in the apartment he was about to move into.

Industrial District | Sam’s Senior Session | Portland, Oregon | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

I rang 2019 in with so many exciting plans and visions for the year – one of them being to bring you FREE, monthly educational material to help you build up and succeed in that small (or big) business life. Though I’m a photographer, not all of my post will be geared towards that one […]

Superstition Mountain | Alison and Justin’s Engagement Session | Apache Junction, Arizona | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

We’ve seen the legendary Harry Potter films and have read every line of the enthralling books. But, let’s be honest; we’ve all been equally disappointed when J.K. Rowling jumps forward 19 years in the storyline following the defeat of Voldemort, to Ginny and Harry (already) married with three children of their own.  I’m here to […]

Jen and Shane met when they were 17 and 18, when Jen asked if Shane if he wanted to swing dance with her. They shared a song together, and didn’t see one another again until the end of summer. The next time they were around each other, Shane asked JEN to dance – he had […]

In-Home Beloved Session | Jennica + Craig | Washington, Illinois | Phoenix Wedding Photographer

Wedding Chicks said it best: “If you have ever turned to your significant other and in all honestly said, “Run away with me.” you might have a bit of a bohemian spirit; and an old-fashioned classic wedding probably wouldn’t cut it for you.” This Princess Boho Elopement Styled Shoot was recently published on the Wedding […]

Before we started Melissa and Ryan’s engagement session at Saguaro Lake, we sat at a picnic table and drank a beer together (their dog Atlas tagged along too!) As soon as we began talking and sharing life stoires, I knew I was in for a rad time with them. We talked about future dreams, past […]
