My Blog bio picture
  • Welcome!

    Hello! I am so glad that you're here. Welcome to my blog. My little corner of the world where I share my work and my life.
    I believe in love. I believe in being present for your life. I believe in romance and love that lasts a lifetime. I believe that Starbucks should offer Toasted Graham Lattes all year. I believe my daughter is amazing. I believe in Tuesday night date nights with my dad. I believe there isn't much that prayer, a good workout or a cheeseburger can't fix. I believe that dresses and skirts with pockets are the best ever. I believe in being friends with my brides. I believe all dogs go to Heaven. I believe in having Thanksgiving dinner more than once a year. I believe in jumping up and down when I love an image I see on the back of my camera.
    I believe that every couple has a love story. ...I can't believe I am lucky enough to tell them.

Ariella + Moe: Maternity Session

I cannot get over when pregnant women look radiant, cute and happy.  Mostly because when I was pregnant I looked tired, huge and swollen.  Haha!  Ariella, though, was allllllll kinds of pretty.   As a person who doesn’t have a lot of photos to look back on, I love having the opportunity to document different stages of life.  In the scheme of a lifetime, a pregnancy is such a short piece, yet it is the beginning of something so amazing.  Moe and Ariella welcomed a baby girl shortly after our session.  I am so thankful that I was able to capture the beginning of their family!

Ariella and Moe, thank you for choosing me.  I wish you, and sweet Talia, so much love!

McKinlay + Mike: Corona Ranch Wedding

There are few things I find more exciting than sparkly gold shoes, glowy light, an insanely beautiful bride and (drumroll please) hockey details…and this wedding had it all!  Mike and McKinlay tied the knot at Corona Ranch Tucson and it was gorgeous.  Their passion for each other, combined with their outgoing, fun personalities made their wedding so perfect!

Enjoy!

 

This is what  happens when a bee flies into your bouquet in the middle of your ceremony!  

M + M, I wish you so much happiness.  Thank you for letting me be a part of your day!

Jen + Jason: Engagement Session

One of my favorite things in the whole wide world is watching how two people love each other.  Not everyone is the same.  Some couples are publicly affectionate.  Some just like to be touching in some way.  Some feel a sense of closeness with a simple glance.  As a photographer, I am passionate about finding the way that two people show their love and documenting it accordingly.

Jen is beautiful, outgoing, radiant.  Jason is calm, quiet, and handsome.  And they are an example of my most favorite kind of love.  Upon meeting Jason, you encounter a polite, yet somewhat shy gentleman…then you get him right up next to Jen and this whole other man comes out!  He is smiling, laughing, kissing, basically posing himself!  …all because of this beautiful woman.  I LOVE IT and I couldn’t be happier to be their wedding photographer!  We spent the evening at Catalina State Park for their engagement session!  Enjoy!

J + J, I am so excited for your wedding in November!  I can’t wait to keep telling your story!

Emily + Noah: Romantic Backyard Wedding

When I first stepped into Noah’s parents’ backyard, I felt like  I was entering a dreamworld!  The trees, grass, vines, brick, and wood (created/designed by Noah’s father) combined with all of the beautiful, elegant wedding details, made the entire scene feel surreal.  Emily conveyed, very early on, how important tradition and family are to her and Noah.  This was evident in the way that they showed such love and appreciation for their parents, grandmothers and all of the children at the wedding.  Although it was their wedding day, they made everyone else feel special.

Emily was absolutely radiant and I caught Noah staring at her on and on throughout the night.  One of my favorite images from the wedding was taken during their first dance as he just beamed at her.  My hope for you, Emily and Noah, is that the love that everyone could see in your eyes that day, carries on throughout your entire lives together.  Thank you for allowing me and Ashley to be a part of your love story.  We were honored.

Emily and Noah, I wish you a lifetime of tradition, family and happiness!

Laurel + Kale: Hacienda Del Sol Wedding

The night I met Laurel was one of the worst nights ever.  My dog had just had a Vestibular Disease spell and I was scared, shaken up and so sad.  When I talked to her and her mom, they were so warm and kind.  They told me they understood because they know how special dogs are -part of the family- and that was when I knew that I loved Laurel (my brides love their pets like children) and needed her to be one of my brides!  Up until the wedding day I had not met her fiance, Kale.  Once I did, it took about 35 seconds to realize why Laurel loves him.  He’s a true gentleman and loves her with a tender passion.  One of my favorite things about Laurel and Kale’s wedding was hearing other people talk about them.  From their friends, to their parents, everyone had such genuine compliments to pay.  Laurel and Kale, you are everything everyone said and more.  Thank you for sharing such a holy, special day with me and Ashley!  We were grateful to be part of something so magical.

L + K, I am sending you so much love and all the best!
