sonya + eliezer // engagements

Another fun engagement session, dogs always make it fun!  We started at the University of Arizona and then headed to the downtown area for some more urban portraits.  Beautiful light (albeit a tad hot out), but I had a blast working with Sonya + Eliezer.  Can’t wait for their fall wedding when it will be much cooler too :)

Savannah has a knack for fashion, and for hotdogs.  We even went to Guero Canelos (they have the BEST sonoran hotdogs out there) for some fun pics!  We all had way too much fun creating her pics.  Fun, demure and beautiful, this is Savannah.

It’s been a constant two weeks of senior portraits, with another 3-4 weeks already full.  I love working with seniors because each one is different, unique and original in their own way.  Katie wanted to try some fun portraits on the UofA campus.  Fun is definitely how I’d desribe them.  We finished off her portrait session with a more urban vibe.  Thanks Katie!

michelle + ivan // engaged

I’m finally getting back to blogging some more and wanted to quickly share a few of my favorites from Michelle + Ivan’s engagement portraits.  They are getting married in June in beautiful Seattle, and they are definitely in love.  A few portraits from the warm summer in Tucson, I know all of you with snow are jealous . . . it was in the 70′s this week!

lisa + chris // engagement

I met Lisa over a year ago at an open house I held at my studio.  I didn’t expect she’d remember me, but soooooo glad she called.  Lisa & Chris are just an awesome couple.  They love life, love each other, and are just so genuine and fun to be around.  With the winter months in Arizona, the light seems to change so rapidly, and the sun set quicker than we had expected, but it made for some fun portraits nonetheless.  REALLY looking forward to their wedding on New Years Eve this year!  Stoked . . . hope you love their images as much as I do.  Oh, leave a comment for the facebook-less duo :)

rachel + chris // engagements

I was able to enjoy another amazing engagement session with beautiful Tucson weather.  Rachel & Chris are an awesome couple with a spectucular wedding planned at the amazing Ventana Canyon Resort later this year and I’m totally stoked.  We had a blast doing some fun golf themed photos using one of Tucson’s most famous courses.  Amazing views were enjoyed from that tee.  They did that more in jest, but it was still an awesome location.  We then headed to the always amazing University of Arizona where both Rachel & Chris enjoyed their college life.  We even got lucky and were able to use the UofA stadium once again.  The sun finally came out for about 30 minutes later in the day which was icing on the cake for some fun shots on University Blvd.  Urban Outfitters was gracious enough to let us jump in a window display for a quick shot or two!  November is too far in the future, can’t wait for their wedding!

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!

Tara & Chris | Engagements

2 posts in one day, it doesn’t happen very often, but, Tara & Chris definitely have it going on with their pics.  It’s been a long time running since I first met with Tara & Chris, a lot of things have changed with my business and style.  I don’t know if she planned it this way, but they sure planned it assuming that I would get better and better at what I do instead of taking their engagements over 1 year ago.  They have a TON of amazing pics and it was a struggle for me to pic the very favorites for the blog (I’m sure they will attest to it too)!

We started at a local theater on the northwest side of Tucson.  The theater manager was totally awesome and gave us some sweet access to the theater and their amenities, so be sure to head over to Tower Theater and see what makes them different than the other theaters.  We then traveled over to an Ace Hardware and just had some good ole’ fun in a new location.  We finished off their session with more awesomeness at the University of Arizona.  So many great locations, so much fun.  The end of the day produced some wicked awesome light.  Can’t wait for their wedding come March!

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

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?

Rene & Steve | Wildhorse Oasis Arizona Wedding

I know, I know, I’ve been very far behind on all my blog postings, but I’m just now getting back to some of my favorite shoots from the past couple of weeks.  I was able to work with Rene & Steve back in the beginning of March, so their photos are long due for a blog posting!  They are getting married in just over 2 weeks and I’m pretty stoked about it!

We started over at Wildhorse Ranch (where their ceremony and reception will take place) and it is a fun and charming location to work with.  Lots of character and beauty all around.  Since both Rene & Steve graduated from the UA, we thought it fitting to find some great locations and have some fun over on campus.  There are some pretty great locations there, some new favorites in here for sure!  I love being able to be creative and abstract with some of my work, yet still keep it full of fun and energy with my clients!  Thanks again Rene & Steve!

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!

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!
