When Jordan’s dad offered for her to join him at a Nascar race in Dover, Delaware, little did she know that the simplest ‘sure!’ would lead to her meeting the love of her life! After meeting Jeffrey at the race and talking the night away, these two made arrangements to stay in touch. With him […]

It was just any other May morning when Carson and Lexi took their dog hiking, little did she know it would be the best day she never saw coming but had dreamed of since she fell in love while the two attended the University of Arizona. Wearing her exercise clothes and sunglasses, she had no […]

After hearing how Faisal proposed to Amela, I knew this man loved her more than words could even express. Their love story is one of patience, creativity, generosity and overwhelming love, I think my jaw dropped by the end of hearing it. Faisal started planning his proposal to Amela a year after they met, two […]

Sheila and Alex were set up from the start. I mean literally! Their mutual friend, Ari, had been wanting the two to date each other for a long time. Ari invited both Sheila and Alex over “to just catch up” – without telling the other person. Both Sheila and Alex were surprised to meet each […]

It was without a doubt the best backdrop to photograph a couple so in love! Journey was giddy, skipping along from place to place, […]

Believe me, Mallory and Brian’s engagement session will forever stand out in my mind. I was in the zone. I had them posed and was photographing away. Things were going wonderfully until I heard a hiss… a slight hiss, and within a split second, it hits me. Water. Everywhere!!! After being threatened and harassed by golf course sprinklers […]

Holy color! When Stephanie and Steven said they were grabbing a drink at The Saguaro in Scottsdale, I jumped at the opportunity to start off our session in a vibrantly colored and fun location! His tie, her dress…it all went so perfectly with the inside and the outside scenery of The Saguaro, I couldn’t stop […]

It was supposed to be a session at a different location…turns out that location had some crazy hours and was about to close as we would be starting our session. Never one without a plan, we headed to Oak Creek Canyon instead. That’s how I met Nina & Derek in person, pulled over on the […]
