cesar // salpointe senior portraits

Cesar is just one of those guys.  The type thats just cool, legit and smart at the same time.  His aspirations are high and he’ll go far, excited to see what he’ll be doing in 5 years.  Who knows maybe he’ll be a big business tycoon and be famous someday . . . I wouldn’t be surprised.  Cesar and I had an awesome time working together, shooting on 4th avenue, downtown and just doing some fun, off-the-wall, new and crazy stuff.  He’s cool because he goes to the same school where my wife teaches, props man.  Check out his awesome pics.

stephanie + fabian // tucson country club

I have always felt a lack of words when trying to express my excitement, joy and other feelings while trying to describe what it was like to have photographed such memorable events. Stephanie & Fabian’s wedding is definitely one of those events that is just to hard to describe in my own words without totally understating the grandeur of how amazing it really was. I knew that their wedding was going to be epic after having an AMAAAAZING time with their engagement portraits (see them here!)  Ever since then it’s just been childlike anticipation for their wedding.  They were married at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Northwest Tucson.  The religious service felt very intimate and it was special to be able to witness.  One of my favorite parts was when Stephanie just couldn’t contain her excitement at the end of the ceremony, almost jumping for joy as she walked back down the aisle with her new husband.  An awesome reception followed at the amazing Tucson Country Club with family and friends that really knew how to party!  I had such an amazing time and look forward to a long friendship with these guys.  Also, big thanks to my friend Jeff Ambrose for driving down to assist and photograph the event with me!  Congrats guys!

Jeff had the awesome privilege of photographing the morning activities and preparation of the guys, so the following images are his:

Their first dance was AWESOME, they started out with a nice slow song (above) but then it got groovy with some salsa, and they REALLY had some moves

regan // senior portrait

I’ve had the pleasure with working with the Ratliff family previously, but I was super excited when they called back to finally get Regan’s senior portraits created.  They had a sour experience working with another photographer that the school had recommended, but I’m glad they finally called back.  She was very natural in front of the camera the first time I worked with the family, and I was stoked to work with her again (I’m sure you can see why).  I was able to work with a couple of cool new locations and just have some fun.  Beautiful day, great locations, awesome and unique wardrobe, fun dogs, AMAZING light = mind-blowing!  Thanks again, look forward to working with this family for many many years to come!

leah // willcox senior

It’s been a while since I blogged, I know . . . but all for a good reason. I’ve had a LOT of new projects and clients that I’ve been working on and the blog has taken the back-burner. It just means you will be seeing the blog a little more often in the next 2 weeks. This is your “next week I’m going to be less productive at work” warning.

Leah is one of those reasons. Awesome girl that is totally natural in front of the camera. She traveled from Willcox for her Senior Portraits and I made sure not to disappoint. Leah said one of her favorite classes is American Government, so, who knows, maybe we’ll all see her in the political limelight someday. Her mom, her dog and her best friend Stephanie came and tagged along, all the merrier in my opinion. Thanks for such a great session Leah, I LOVED your pics!
