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!

Sharon is very natural in front of the camera, I don’t think she took a bad picture once!  Another set of AWESOME portraits, thank you Sharon!

evyn + jandro // tucson engagement

Weather in Tucson lately has been a little on the dull side, with full cloud coverage and lots of rain in the past two weeks.  Not that I am complaining, it just makes it a little drab for photography on some days.  Evyn + Jandro have good luck on their side, because the day we headed out for their engagement session we had some of the best weather of the entire year.  Bright sun, light clouds, mid 70 temperature = awesome portraits.  We started at the University of Arizona and later headed downtown for a more urban feel.  I loved finding new locations and trying something new!  They were totally relaxed and just had a blast, which are the two most important ingredients in an awesome photoshoot recipe.  I can’t wait to photograph their wedding this coming October at The Tucson Country Club.  Evyn is a SUPER talented hair stylist, who recently was invited to participate in an international styling event in Paris (holy cow thats so cool!), and Jandro is an aspiring cinematographer, check out his stuff.  Thanks again guys for an amazing time!

Courtney + Robert

I’ve been busy as a Christmas elf on Christmas eve lately, trying to wrap up a lot of things before Christmas and New Years, there is still A LOT to do.  Lot of new plans for next year, new resolutions and goals and maybe even some new looks for the branding coming soon :)   For all of you that have been following my blog and my work over the past couple of years, thank you so much for all your support (and blog comments)!  I’m looking forward to some big plans for 2010 and I can’t wait to get started.  First day back at the studio today (which also happens to be my 4 year wedding anniversary!!!!) and already getting some new inquiries from what I imagine to be the new brides that got engaged over the holiday break.  Welcome to the blog :)

Not to steal any thunder from Courtney + Roberts amazing pics, but I am IN LOVE with their session.  They came from Philadelphia for the holidays and luckily we had time to fit them in for their engagement portraits.  New locations, new ideas, old locations, new ideas . . . . always new and fresh here :) Robert is a commercial pilot so we had to start at a small airport just next to the Tucson Airport, then meandered over to the airport for some more relaxed and fun portraits, and topped off this mountain of an engagement session at the University of Arizona.  Hard to go wrong with anything, but I wish we had a tad more daylight to work with.

I can’t wait for their wedding this coming October!!  Thanks again Cournety & Robert for bringing the fun and drowning the camera with awesomeness.

It was a small plane, I could barely fit in the backseat

Saundra + Michael

I had a great afternoon working with my friend Saundra and her fiance Michael photographing their awesome engagement portraits.  We had a great time having some football fun at a local high school and then headed down to the UA for some more amazing portraits.  I really can’t wait for their wedding because they are just so fun to be around!  Never a dull moment :)   I definitely was able to step outside the box on some of these and they just went with the flow . . . I love it when my clients let me do what I like to do :)   Makes my job so much more fun!  I’ll tell you this, Michael is a pretty lucky guy and I’m so happy for the both of them!

It’s also been great working with Saundra’s family.  Her dad is a high-end custom home contractor: he builds some pretty SWEET homes.  Here is one of the homes I photographed a couple of weeks ago that he built, designed by Kevin B Howard Architects:

Stephanie & Fabian | UofA Engagement

I get the coolest locations. Period. End of story. I also get the coolest couples in the whole world. Stephanie & Fabian happen to be one of them. You don’t even need to know them to realize how cool they are, just check out their pics! Fabian works at the UA and hooked us up with some sweet access to the famous McKale center and also the UA Football stadium. Our expectations were high, but unfortunately we ran into some pitfalls: 1. McKale was setup for a Volleyball game later that evening, so it wasn’t nearly as fun as it could have been :( 2. Football stadium had just been fertilized, so there was a tarp covering the field :( 3. We had very short amounts of time at each location :( Good thing was, we didn’t need anything more because they both brought their A game.

There are a lot of pictures that I cannot necessarily post because I am also restricted on not posting any photographs that contain any official UA logos and other UA Sports paraphernalia. They are getting married in April and I CANNOT WAIT.

First off, any true Wildcat fan should recognize the signature on this ball. In fact, this was a hall-of-fame signature studded ball for sure! Which one is worth more, the ring or the ball?
