cierra + adam // engaged

Cierra & Adam are definitely in love, and are high school sweethearts too!  They were willing to try some funky ideas I had and we had a ton of fun roaming the UofA campus and in the downtown area as well.  I love working with couples that are head over heels for each other!

natalie // senior

I love it when seniors bring their friends (or boy/girlfriend) along, always makes it more interesting behind the scenes, and Natalie & Sean are a pretty darling couple. It’s almost as if they make a great “hollywood” couple together :) Thanks for an awesome time!

kim + phil // nashville engagement

It’s been a long and busy spring season (thankfully), and shortly after returning from my South American trip to Brazil, I had a super fantastic session in Nashville with Kim + Phil. These two lovebirds are getting married later this year in Tucson and I really cannot wait for their wedding! On the culture & fun scale, Nashville > Tucson. Easy. We even got to see Tim McGraw & Kenny Chesney performing at a live concert there, although it was about 1/2 mile away and we could see it from a bridge, but nonetheless, I feel like I’ve finally seen Nashville :) Congrats to Kim + Phil!!

marcus + bianka // love + hair

It was all about the hair . . . basically.  Marcus + Bianka planned a fun portrait session to capture their relationship, and also to commemorate the hair, Marcus’ that is.  He’s had dreadlocks for 7 years and it was finally time to get it cut.  Needless to say, they were such a fun and awesome couple to work with and it’s hard to pick just a few to share!  I’m curious to see what he looks like now without dreads . . .

Kunz @ La Paloma | Family Portraits in Tucson Arizona

I finally had the chance to photograph a young family, who happen to be really good friends of mine, at a location not too distant from my home. La Paloma has a small “basin” before the entrance to the resort that is just a fun place, beautiful views and lush grass. The weather could not have been better! Wow, I wish it would stay like this the rest of the year, it was awesome!

Anyways . . . Brandon, Liz and Taevin are just one of the cutest families out there. Liz is expecting their 2nd son and they wanted to get their family portraits done sooner than later :D I had a blast working with them . . . I have to say, the final pic (the nice formal family pic) is buttah! That background is amazing!!!

Richie & Dhara | family portraits in Bisbee Arizona

I had another great session in Bisbee, it’s hard to not like that place!  It’s full of life, character and weird/interesting things . . . very easy to photograph.  Anyways, Richie & Dhara were great subjects, very easy to work with and a lot of fun to be with!  I’m very excited for them as they mentioned that they never had very good photos from their wedding, and never had engagment photos . . . so these are their post-wedding “engagement” type photos :)   They are also expecting their first child soon, so congrats again!

Cheryl & Josh – Downtown Tucson Engagement Portraits in Arizona

What do you get when you combine an awesome couple, super cool location, great lighting and lot’s of energy? You get Cheryl & Josh’s engagement pictures! We headed downtown for what was going to be a moderately warm day, but the only thing that stayed hot was the couple! They didn’t stop, just one awesome picture after the other. We even had to stop and take a water break, it was that much fun! We just kept on walking around and found some of the coolest locations, like graffiti walls, abandoned buildings, parking garages and much more. If you know Cheryl or Josh, be sure to let them know how much you liked their photos!




















Virginia Tech & Radford | Wedding Engagement Photography in Virginia

Although this week involved little sleep, long hours of flight and sore shoulders from hauling all of my gear through the airport, I would do it again in a heartbeat! I had a blast with Jennifer & Scott for their engagement photos, who are getting married this coming June. I might be a little biased as she’s my sis-in-law, but I think their engagement photos are the most romantic pictures to date :) Radford University and Virginia Tech University make great locations, and you can probably tell that Virginia is a bit greener than Arizona. Our family is really excited for them, and I’m just really excited about their photos.

I was surprised that the sun doesn’t set till around 8:20 there, so it was an interesting change! Enjoy . . .
