timothy // senior

I had been looking forwad to Timothy’s senior portraits because it meant I got to go back to my High School: Sabino.  It has been many many years since I have been there, not much has changed.  It was however a blast from the past, since the fine-arts building is where I hung out a lot (choir nerd, I must admit, but it did get me a scholarship to UA!).  I even got to see one of my favorite teachers as well, who is still teaching the awesome Drama department.  From what I’m told, Timothy is a great actor and comedian, participates in the drama and improv program.  So, we planned a quick portion of his portrait session to be in the school theater room, and I had fun playing with the new array of multi-colored lights :)  He’s a natural if you couldn’t tell . . . thanks again Timothy, was a blast!

courtney + robert // arizona inn wedding

Where to begin.  It’s pretty standard for me to smile a LOT while I’m editing wedding images, getting to relive all the happy and funny moments of the wedding day.  My face hurts more than usual now since editing Courtney + Robert’s wedding, I’ve been smiling all morning, with a lot of lols mixed in as well.  Their wedding was simply awesome from start to finish.  They traveled all the way from Philadelphia, and most of the family came from the area as well; everyone was really excited to be there.

The Arizona Inn is one of my favorite Tucson locations, and the weather on their wedding day was just perfect.  I always get excited when the bride & groom plans a LOT of time for portraits (which means more time to relax and enjoy the day), I got lucky and got LOTS of extra time with the two of them.  Courtney + Robert planned to see each other for the first time before the ceremony so that they would have plenty of time for great portraits, and time to just relax and take it all in.  I LOVE these opportunities and I think it shows below.

Enough talk, enjoy their awesome images and leave a comment or two for the happy couple.  Special thanks again to my good buddy Carraig for coming all the way from Texas to help with this wedding!

evyn + jandro // tucson country club wedding

Ever since Evyn + Jandro’s awesome engagement session, I’ve been looking forward to their wedding with much anticipation.  Not only are they just a really awesome couple to work with, I knew that the Tucson Country Club would be a simply awesome location for them as well.  Cindy at the Tucson Country Club is so gracious and accommodating, and the staff and everything else is always over the top as well!  The outdoor ceremony location is simply to die for.

There was something very special and unique about this wedding, and I can’t quite describe it in words.  Ever since I showed up, there was an almost tangible excitement and joy in the air and it was very contagious.  EVERYONE was just so excited, and as the guests started to arrive and the time was getting closer to the ceremony, the excitement, love and joy just kept on building and building.  I’ll admit, I think I shed a little tear during their ceremony, and I saw many others as well.  Everything was just awesome.  Amazing weather, amazing light, a photographer’s dream.  I was also blessed with a lot of time to photograph the bride & groom and the bridal party, so we have lots of portraits (and awesome details as well)!  From start to finish, it couldn’t have been a better day!  One last thing, aren’t bow ties the best?  Jandro looks like James Bond in everything . . .

Also special thanks to my good friend Carraig who came out to assist me from Texas!  He’s a former groom of mine too :)  He also captured quite a few of the animations below :)

aaron + sarah // film

I shot these a few months back when I was having some fun with film (still am) and just now realized I never posted them!  This was sort of a hybrid of some engagement portraits and then capturing life as it happens.  Aaron & Sarah didn’t want too many “directed” portraits, but more of a documentary style approach.  We planned a few different locations and ideas and then just let them be themselves.  Their wedding is this weekend (boy does time fly) and am super excited to be working with my brother on his wedding day.

robbie + his mustang // senior

Robbie is among the many kids in the Benson area that I have been able to work with, with many more coming down the pipes as well.  He’s got an awesome fox-body Mustang (the kind I liked in high school), and apparently is part of a collection that belongs to the family.  Here are just a few from  his session that I loved, and more to come with his sibling’s mustang’s and family portraits.  Always love catering the senior portraits to their hobbies and interests!
