Valerie & Steve – Ritz Carlton Engagement Portraits

Well, many people were impressed that I got to shoot at the Tucson Airport with unlimited access to anywhere I wanted to shoot. Well, I think I might have almost topped that this week! I got special corporate clearance from the Ritz Carlton in Tucson, and I had full access to the Championship golf course and club house, the entire afternoon with NO ONE ELSE THERE. Yes, you read it: full access to a world class golf facilities with an awesome couple, amazing lighting, and a large can of awesomeness. Only time limited our creativity, but boy was it an opportunity. Valerie & Steve were a blast to work with and look forward to their wedding come August! We started out in the downtown area for a little bit, then headed to the Ritz golf club and had a blast. Tiger Woods has won the Championship Match Play Tournament at this course a number of times . . . this place was EXACTLY like you would see in the really high-end magazines and stuff . . . top notch! I hope that someday I can go back, but I doubt I’ll get that kind of opp again. NOTE: You never know where you’ll get here in Tucson if you just drop my name :) Thanks again Valerie & Steve, you’re the bestest!

Brianna & Ricardo | Tucson Engagement Portraits

Brianna & Ricardo were the other new couple I had the chance to work with on Saturday. I always love working with new couples!!! We started at the UofA and then migrated down to the downtown area to finish up their engagement portraits. They seemed to nail their photos each time I took a picture, they must have studied up on my style or something . . .

Anyway, another awesome session with a super fun couple. They are getting married this coming September @ Hacienda Del Sol, of which I am really looking forward to! It’s a really nice place although I have never had the opportunity to shoot a wedding there yet. Thanks again Brianna & Ricardo, have a super Christmas!

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 . . .
