It’s been almost 8 years since I started shooting senior portraits, and every year it just keeps getting better and better. Not only is my photography improving every year, but seniors also bring more and more ideas and inspiration. I really do feed off my clients personality and ideas, and it makes the session that much better.

I had the wonderful pleasure of working with such an awesome family just a few days before Christmas last year.  I love being able to surprise people with photographs that make them look AWESOME.  I’m pretty sure more than a few individuals didn’t think they were very photogenic, of which I always reply “everyone is photogenic”.  I truly believe it.  It just takes the right photographer (hint hint, subtle self promotion here!).  Suffice to say that everyone loved their photos, and I absolutely loved everything about photographing this family.  Their home is beautiful and provided a great spot for their portraits with easy access to the wonderful Tucson desert landscape.  THANK YOU for such an awesome time!

ashley & troy // engaged

I’ve been excited about posting these images for a few weeks now because there is soooo much to like about Ashley & Troy…and about their pics too! Ashley was a bridesmaid in Emma & Danny’s weddingalmost 2 years ago, and apparently has stalked my blog ever since. Pretty flattering to say the least! It gets better :) Troy planned a day for engagement portraits, and Ashley thought her sister was going to be the photographer. I pulled up to the location and was getting my gear ready, Ashley recognized me and said hi, but she had no idea that I was going to be the one photographing for them. She just thought it was a pretty big coincidence that I happened to be in the same place, at the same time, and for the same purpose as they were. I played along for a few minutes before telling her that her sister couldn’t make it and I would be filling in. I’m glad she didn’t mind the swap :) It feels kind of weird being the surprise, but it was certainly fun to be a part of it!

Allie has been dancing since she was young and certainly had the moves to prove it. I love incorporating talents, interests or hobbies into sessions, it always makes them that much more unique. Her parents also have a killer classic muscle car (jealous). If you don’t know her, she is incredibly easy to talk to, so make sure you say hi! Thanks Allie!

Well it’s hard to believe that it has taken me this long to blog.  There are a LOT of really exciting things in the pipeline that I cannot wait to blog.  You’re gonna love it, so if you can be a tad more patient it’l be worth it :)

I had an AWESOME session with Lindsay (and her good friend Amanda) down in the Tubac area.  Lindsay knew exactly what she wanted and we went out and captured exactly that: fun.  They have known each other for a LONG time so she knew they had to have pictures together, having fun.  So, swinging at the park, hanging upside-down from trees, rolling in the leaves, leaf fights and a whole lot more was definitely a recipe for success.  Thanks to both of you for such a great time!

The post that couldn’t wait! | Wedding Photobooth at Westward Look Resort in Tucson Arizona

So I’ve been super excited about this past weekend for a number of weeks now.  It was Emma & Danny’s wedding (a SUPER awesome couple) in Mesa and then in Tucson at the Westward Look (beautiful location).  I was able to try something new this wedding, something I just couldn’t wait for!  I don’t have a really cool name for it yet, but maybe I’ll get some collective support from all you blogstalkers out there . . . let’s just call it the ‘photobooth’ for now.  This ain’t your grandma’s photobooth, not even a photobooth by 2002′ standards, but totally wicked awesome and off the wall.

This is something new I’ll be adding to some of my packages, and as an add-on service to any current or future brides getting married!  The debut of our ‘photbooth’ was an absolute hit!!!  My assistants and I laughed our butts off and had so much fun with all the guests I can’t even begin to tell you how awesome it was.  Anyway, if YOU (yes YOU) are looking for something fun and awesome at your wedding reception, this is THE way to go.  You can only get it here folks :D

It was hard to pick just a few . . . there are 30 . . . and this is just the beginning of them.  I didn’t even tell Emma & Danny to bring props, but they did and it was totally awesome!  Hope you enjoy!

***CONTEST***   I am looking for a crazy cool name for our awesome-possum photobooth.  Please leave a comment at the bottom of the post with your idea in quotes!

It was awesome to see Nate & Meagan there, one of my previous couples!

Crystal & Todd!

Big kudos to Crystal & Todd for a fun day on Tuesday! We headed over to Trail Dust town for some fun portraits, made a quick stop at Long John’s (yes, the fast food joint, you’ll have to ask them all about it!) and then stopped off at the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch to finish up their engagement session.

Beautiful day for some awesome portraits, and their fun and laughter was just contagious :P   For all you photographers, processing was done with my own LR presets, Presetopia.com for details.

Crystal & Todd are getting married on probably the best day of the year . . . Feb 21 . . . my birthday :)   Thanks again guys, it was a lot of fun!

Reyna – Downtown | relaxed portraits in tucson arizona

This monsoon season sure makes things interesting as far as planning for outdoor portrait sessions.  You never know when it’s going to clear up, and out of nowhere it can start pouring again.  Oh well, atleast I’m not melting anymore :)   Anyway, I had a fun session with Reyna, who is an aspiring photographer and needed some great shots for hew new website.  This was located in downtown Tucson, and it was the perfect time for some great portraits, beautiful weather that wasn’t too hot (but then again I still sweat my head off!)  Thanks for being so awesome Reyna!!

Bisbee AZ – Matt & Mary | Engagement Portraits in Arizona

Wow. That pretty much sums up how cool Bisbee is, with an awesome couple, on a beautiful day! Bisbee has a long tradition (in my memories) of old antique shops, art galleries, fantasticly rustic buildings and great hot dogs. I didn’t get to sample the hot dogs this time around, but I did the others! If you have not been there, please check it out. Don’t forget the really cool mine tour, definitely worth it.

Mary & Matt are getting married later this July, but it was a total blast to work with them. It was hard to put down the camera (ever) because they were always doing something new and fun. My friend Travis came along and shot some video work for me, which hopefully in the near future I’ll be able to post on the blog (for all you that are wondering how cool my engagement sessions really are!)

(NOTE: I don’t have my fancy border people always ask me about because I’m doing this from my laptop in the Virgin Islands, didn’t have that much time to work on it! Updates to come)
