tara + chris // la paloma wedding

It has been a long time in the works and the day finally arrived that Tara + Chris were to be wed.  That day was Saturday and oh what a beautiful day it was.  The preparation, ceremony and wedding reception all took place at the beautiful Westin La Paloma where we had awesome sunshine and mild cloud coverage for the entire day.  Tara planned out everything to the last jot and tittle, and you could really tell the amount of time that they both had spent planning their special day.  Custom t-shirts, flowers, gifts, cards, shoes, wardrobe, cake toppers, custom “bridal room” door-hangers, a shnazzy pen to sign their license, it was all there and done very well.  We started off the day before noon with their getting-ready portraits.  The amazing Katy Davis from Couture Makeup did such an amazing job, I’ve never seen anyone quite as talented as her.  The flowers, provided by Patty Hunter from Sauliz Floral Dezigns were exquisite!! (She even drove to Phoenix that morning to pick up flowers for the bouquets, now thats service!)  Everything came together just perfectly, and to my knowledge, everything ran as smooth as it could have done.  Thank you SOOOOO much for letting me be a part of such a wonderful event, it was definitely a wedding I will never forget.

Props to my good friend Sam Hassas for coming out and helping me on this wedding.  It’s always a pleasure working with him, make sure to check out his blog!  Big thanks to all the vendors who came out and performed wonderfully for their special day!

If you haven’t seen enough of these awesome folks, then here’s another 30+ images from their wedding day.  We started super early at 6:30am at the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple in order to have the best light for their portraits.  I don’t shoot in the morning very often, but this day was different in the quality and color of light, creating an almost pastel palette of colors and tones.  I loved it, I should shoot more in the wee morning hours more often . . . the only problem is maybe finding people who would be up for it :D   It was a pleasure working with them and their families on such a beautiful day, I couldn’t have asked for more.  Later that evening we traveled back to Tucson for their wedding reception at their wonderful home.  One of the best receptions I’ve attended, maybe because they built their house knowing they would be hosting weddings there!  They rocked an awesome photbooth (see post just below this!) and the decorations, food and fun was definitely a night to remember.  Thanks again to all who partied with us!

Also a big thanks to my assistant for the morning, Jeff Ambrose.  Always a pleasure to have you come!

Man I love this family!  I had another awesome wedding this weekend with the Loftfield family, I could probably work with them every weekend and I probably wouldn’t get tired of it.  They know how to have fun and party and that makes my job just that much better.  Here are a few of my favorite portraits from their photobooth at the reception.  Hard not to post more because they are all so awesome, but I think 30 should suffice :)

sydney // senior portraits

I’m back from Vegas and ready for a full week of productive work, and most importantly is get caught up on some much needed blogging! I had a chance to work with Sydney over 2 months ago on an awesome senior portrait session in the downtown area. Her dog, Dazzle, shined in front of the camera as well (lame pun :D ) I think we were able to create a lot of unique variety with her session and have fun making some photographs that really speak about who she is. Thanks again Sydney!

rachel + chris // engagements

I was able to enjoy another amazing engagement session with beautiful Tucson weather.  Rachel & Chris are an awesome couple with a spectucular wedding planned at the amazing Ventana Canyon Resort later this year and I’m totally stoked.  We had a blast doing some fun golf themed photos using one of Tucson’s most famous courses.  Amazing views were enjoyed from that tee.  They did that more in jest, but it was still an awesome location.  We then headed to the always amazing University of Arizona where both Rachel & Chris enjoyed their college life.  We even got lucky and were able to use the UofA stadium once again.  The sun finally came out for about 30 minutes later in the day which was icing on the cake for some fun shots on University Blvd.  Urban Outfitters was gracious enough to let us jump in a window display for a quick shot or two!  November is too far in the future, can’t wait for their wedding!

evyn + jandro // tucson engagement

Weather in Tucson lately has been a little on the dull side, with full cloud coverage and lots of rain in the past two weeks.  Not that I am complaining, it just makes it a little drab for photography on some days.  Evyn + Jandro have good luck on their side, because the day we headed out for their engagement session we had some of the best weather of the entire year.  Bright sun, light clouds, mid 70 temperature = awesome portraits.  We started at the University of Arizona and later headed downtown for a more urban feel.  I loved finding new locations and trying something new!  They were totally relaxed and just had a blast, which are the two most important ingredients in an awesome photoshoot recipe.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming October at The Tucson Country Club.  Evyn is a SUPER talented hair stylist, who recently was invited to participate in an international styling event in Paris (holy cow thats so cool!), and Jandro is an aspiring cinematographer, check out his stuff.  Thanks again guys for an amazing time!
