This past January, Matt and I traveled to Portland, Oregon to visit family (our new baby niece had just been born a few weeks prior!). While there, we knew (okay, I knew) that we needed to do an anniversary session at Latourell Falls in Portland to celebrate Matt and I’s 5 years of marriage. An […]

I hung out with Sherilyn and Tim for their Saguaro Lake Anniversary Session, and got to hear a bit about their story: Sheri and Tim met when she was invited by a friend to play a pick-up soccer game, the summer after their freshman year of college. Needless to say, Sheri went back to play […]

Slot Canyon Elopement | Page, Arizona | Northern Arizona Wedding Photographer

Horseshoe Bend is one of the most iconic elopement locations in Arizona. With its gorgeous u-shaped curve and 1,000 foot drop, there isn’t a single spot at the top of the canyon that isn’t 100% epic and breathtaking.

While in Sedona a few weekends ago with my fellow photog friend Khali, we met these two babes at the top of Cathedral Rock’s hiking trail! Naturally, being photographers, we asked if they would be up for having a mini session with the two of us – thankfully, they said yes and didn’t find us […]
