gina & jonathan // jw marriot tucson wedding

It’s hard to put in to words how incredibly awesome Gina & Jonathan are.  They were so relaxed and ready to party, and let me do whatever I wanted for their portraits.  I could immediately tell it was a close group of friends that came in for the wedding, and most of them had known each other for 15+ years.  Needless to say the dance floor was off-the-charts crazy!  Such a beautiful day with awesome people, my job doesn’t get much better than this.

chris + don // engaged

I’ve known Don for a few years ever since I did some of his latest headshots.  Don recently got engaged to a wonderful, sweet woman and they are seriously the cutest couple ever.   We had a blast out in the Benson area, wish them congrats on their upcoming wedding!

heather + scott // ritz carlton wedding

It feels surreal typing this, but this is my last wedding of 2012 and it definitely went out with a bang! Heather + Scott had an absolutely gorgeous wedding at the most beautiful venue in all of Arizona. It was a family centric event with lots of emotion, surprises, laughter and fun. Thank you for allowing me to capture such a special event in your lives!

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!

kim + phil // nashville engagement

It’s been a long and busy spring season (thankfully), and shortly after returning from my South American trip to Brazil, I had a super fantastic session in Nashville with Kim + Phil. These two lovebirds are getting married later this year in Tucson and I really cannot wait for their wedding! On the culture & fun scale, Nashville > Tucson. Easy. We even got to see Tim McGraw & Kenny Chesney performing at a live concert there, although it was about 1/2 mile away and we could see it from a bridge, but nonetheless, I feel like I’ve finally seen Nashville :) Congrats to Kim + Phil!!

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!

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!

erin + dean // engaged

Erin + Dean are FUN.  They are madly in love, and they know how to joke around and laugh, a LOT.  Downtown tucson is always a great place, but I’m really really glad we were able to try a new spot on Mt. Lemmon which was just absolutely gorgeous!  Really excited for their wedding this coming spring, can’t wait!  Thanks Erin & Dean!

lindsey + brian // wedding

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!

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 :)

lindsey + brian // engagements

This is one of the only times I have ever been up to Mt. Lemmon for any kind of portraits.  Lindsey + Brian love the outdoors and we decided it would be a great location!  I need to come more often because it was just downright beautiful up there.  Fun + love always works out in the end, and I can’t wait to post their wedding images too!  Congrats to Lindsey + Brian!

kelley + matt // tanque verde guest ranch

So it has officially felt like forever since my last blog post.  May has been a whirlwind of a month and I’m not even close to getting a break yet!  I had a ton more senior portraits, 2 weddings, family portraits in Texas and then a wedding in Seattle.  I’m ready for a break, but can’t wait to share all of these amazing portraits.

heather + brady // wed

Spring weddings in Tucson are always just awesome, and nothing says “Tucson” like the Tanque Verde Guest Ranch: a dude ranch nestled into the Saguaro National Monument East (think of a forest, but except trees, big Saguaro cacti everywhere).  Cool, comfortable weather and a lot of really great people to be around, it really makes my job such an awesome experience even through a 12-hour day.  The girls started getting in the VERY early morning, I think before 6am, don’t know how they did it and last well close to midnight partying just as hard as everyone else.  Such a fun day, full of emotion, laughter and just great people.  Thank you Heather & Brady!

aaron & sarah // hacienda del sol wedding

This wedding was a little different than my normal approach for most weddings, and for a couple of reasons.  First, it’s a rather small and intimate wedding for close friends and family (which I LOVE by the way); second, it’s also my brother’s wedding; third, I absolutely LOVE the Hacienda Del Sol.  They have hands down the best wedding food at any venue in Tucson!  They’ve been engaged for a couple months now and I’ve been looking forward to their wedding ever since.  My photographic approach to their wedding was primarily as a guest and photographer second.  Since they kept it simple and sweet, there wasn’t a lot of the traditional “bouquest toss” and other events of the day.  It was nice to attend and enjoy a wedding that was more about the company of each other and family, than the party and plans.  I’m super excited to welcome Sarah in to the family!

stephanie + fabian // tucson country club

I have always felt a lack of words when trying to express my excitement, joy and other feelings while trying to describe what it was like to have photographed such memorable events. Stephanie & Fabian’s wedding is definitely one of those events that is just to hard to describe in my own words without totally understating the grandeur of how amazing it really was. I knew that their wedding was going to be epic after having an AMAAAAZING time with their engagement portraits (see them here!)  Ever since then it’s just been childlike anticipation for their wedding.  They were married at St. Elizabeth Ann Seton Catholic Church in Northwest Tucson.  The religious service felt very intimate and it was special to be able to witness.  One of my favorite parts was when Stephanie just couldn’t contain her excitement at the end of the ceremony, almost jumping for joy as she walked back down the aisle with her new husband.  An awesome reception followed at the amazing Tucson Country Club with family and friends that really knew how to party!  I had such an amazing time and look forward to a long friendship with these guys.  Also, big thanks to my friend Jeff Ambrose for driving down to assist and photograph the event with me!  Congrats guys!

Jeff had the awesome privilege of photographing the morning activities and preparation of the guys, so the following images are his:

stevie + kyle // wedding, mesa arizona

If you haven’t seen enough of these awesome folks, then here’s another 30+ images from their wedding day.  We started super early at 6:30am at the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple in order to have the best light for their portraits.  I don’t shoot in the morning very often, but this day was different in the quality and color of light, creating an almost pastel palette of colors and tones.  I loved it, I should shoot more in the wee morning hours more often . . . the only problem is maybe finding people who would be up for it :D   It was a pleasure working with them and their families on such a beautiful day, I couldn’t have asked for more.  Later that evening we traveled back to Tucson for their wedding reception at their wonderful home.  One of the best receptions I’ve attended, maybe because they built their house knowing they would be hosting weddings there!  They rocked an awesome photbooth (see post just below this!) and the decorations, food and fun was definitely a night to remember.  Thanks again to all who partied with us!

Also a big thanks to my assistant for the morning, Jeff Ambrose.  Always a pleasure to have you come!

Man I love this family!  I had another awesome wedding this weekend with the Loftfield family, I could probably work with them every weekend and I probably wouldn’t get tired of it.  They know how to have fun and party and that makes my job just that much better.  Here are a few of my favorite portraits from their photobooth at the reception.  Hard not to post more because they are all so awesome, but I think 30 should suffice :)

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!

Saundra + Michael finally tied the knot almost 2 weeks ago in Mesa AZ.  Everything about working with them has just been a real pleasure, like old friends hanging out and having a good time.  Both of their families are just wonderful and it was my honor to have been able to participate in such a special event for everyone, and I can’t wait for her sister Stevie’s wedding in just a few weeks.  Then I get to enjoy all the crazy partying with awesome people all over again!  Congratulations again to Saundra + Michael, I wish you both the best!

Philadelphia Wedding

I had an awesome time this weekend photographing a very special wedding with my good friend Tony Hoffer. He is an extremely talented shooter and it was a pleasure being able to work with him.  This weekend was the “snowmageddon” in the Northeast USA and I got to see it first hand.  It was probably the most snow I’ve ever seen in my life, around 24″.  It was quite the site, made for slower travel, but it was a sight to be seen.  Donny & Angela were not phased, they kept on going despite the less-than-ideal weather conditions, but they did not seem to mind one bit.  It is definitely a wedding that I will not soon forget.  Be sure to give a big thanks and visit Tony’s website for having me out to shoot with him.

Tony already posted quite a few of my shots on his blog, but I thought I would share a few of mine.

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?
