kimberly + phil // wed

Kimberly + Phil are two awesome people that are REALLY in love.  They feel like long lost friends.  I had the pleasure of shooting their engagements in Nashville earlier this summer and they are seriously so much fun to just be around.  I think their family agrees and everyone at this wedding knew how to party.  Gonna miss these guys!

brooke + rick // wed

I’ve known Brooke & Rick for a few years now. It all started back when I was part of a big contest to give away an amazing engagement prize to one lucky couple. All over Tucson, by the thousands, people submitted their love story to the local news channel for a chance to win an all expense paid engagement package. It included a lot of amazing goodies, including a very expensive and beautiful Tacori diamond ring. The one rule was, that if you were selected to win, you had to propose to your fiance. That is precisely what Rick did, and I was there to document their proposal. Fast forward 2 years later, Brooke & Rick got married last month and it was one of the most special, loving, emotional and fun weddings I’ve ever experienced. Their love is so apparent, and they were surrounded by many friends and family that shared the same feelings. This is a wedding that I will always remember. Brooke, Rick, THANK YOU.

sonya + eliezer // tucson wedding

Wow. Thats really all that comes to my mind whenever I think of this wedding. They wouldn’t stop smiling, kissing, loving each other. The day was filled with lots of family, friends, laughter, tears, fun, and a lot of love. This is a real wedding, with real people, and I enjoyed every single second of it. Thank you guys for trusting my vision and allowing me to be part of your day!

nicole + brian // wedding

It has been a few months since I’ve done a wedding in Tucson, but, it’s fall and that means its wedding season in Tucson.  It was supposed to be a bright beautiful day, but we did get some rain clouds, and even showers, right when the ceremony was supposed to start.  Nicole & Brian were both calm and collected, nothing was going to phase them!  However, I secretly wanted to shoot in the rain :)  The thought shooting a ceremony in the rain would be uber romantic…but thats me!  I can’t believe how much FUN both of them have together.  It’s very clear that they are in love, AND are the perfect match for each other!

What an incredible wedding!  Lindsey + Brian seriously planned the perfect day.  Everything went soooo smooth, it was definitely meant to be.  The Stillwell House is one of my favorite local wedding venues.  It offers a unique setting with a lot of charm and variety mixed in.  A very emotional morning and ceremony was topped off with a smashing reception party that had some serious groove to it.  Thanks for letting me come tag along!

Featured on TheKnot.com, Congrats Jessica & Josh!

TheKnot.com has been working on a featured listing of a bride & groom I photographed back in October 2008.  It was a very memorable wedding on many regards; beautifully arranged and decorated, wonderful accomodations at the Stillwell House, super awesome couple, and a reception party that could dance like they were dancing for a gold medal.  Congratulations again to Jessica & Josh!

To view their story you can visit TheKnot.com and read the full story. If you want to recap on their awesome pics, visit our blog post here.

katie & denis | 4.18.09 @ stillwell house | tucson arizona wedding photography

You’ll remember Katie & Denis’ awesome engagement photos we took at the very end of last year (in fact, the 2nd to last photoshoot I did for 2008) and since then I had been really looking forward to their wedding.  They are such a fun, genuine couple that are truly in love.  I didn’t know much about their story until Sergio (the best man) gave his wedding speech/toast at the wedding, and what a fun and amazing couple they are!  Sergio, who undoubtedly gave the very best wedding speech (Lib’s was just as awesome as well!) I’ve ever heard in wedding history, insomuch that I really felt like I got to know Katie & Denis so much more and how wonderful a couple they make!  The light throughout the whole day was beautiful (thank you AZ, you’re always kind to me) and it was just a blast to be there with them.  The Stillwell House is always a fun place to shoot at, awesome details, superb staff and awesome food as well!  Thanks again guys for allowing me to work with you both on such a special day, I feel so lucky!

Also. big props to my buddy Sergio, sergiomottola.com, who flew down from Seattle for the weekend and came and shot this wedding with me.  You can see his stuff on his blog!  His style is such a breath of fresh air, he definitely beats to the tune of his own drum and copies no one.

Almost every wedding, the guests will be missing this kind of reaction of the groom when he sees the bride walking down the aisle.  Everyone always looks down the aisle at the beautiful bride (like above), but miss the sweet tender expressions of the groom.

On technical standpoint, this was my favorite lens of the day.  Gotta love the wide 24L loving, just fantabulous

Hard to say which one I like better.  But I bounced my flash on Sergio (the photographer) who was off the side, and also held a napkin up near the flash to create this effect.  You don’t need fancy tools to get the job done some times, just some ingenuity :)

Katie & Dennis

I’m blogging here from chilly SLC with quite a bit of snow outside.  Wish I had the Tucson weather, which was amazing this past weekend!  These last weeks in December are always my busiest and this weekend was no exception.  I had an awesome opportunity to work with Katie & Dennis and their engagement portraits.  We started downtown, meandered around some of the interesting parts and then concluded the session at the UofA campus.  Weather was perfect and we had a blast (atleast I did!!)

Katie & Dennis are getting married this coming April @ the Stillwell House (this is where Jessica was married in October, pics from Stillwell House).  I’m super excited about working with them and can’t wait till the wedding!  Thanks again Katie & Dennis, you guys really made my weekend awesome!
