There’s nothing more precious to me than the opportunity to witness and capture a couple so smitten with one another that when they’re in each other’s presence, it’s as if no one, not another single soul or heart, exists in the world. Sam and Andrew’s love was so captivating and such a reminder of what […]

Not too many fathers can say that they were there the minute their daughter laid eyes on the man that would hopelessly sweep her off her feet and become her husband. But Katie’s dad was with her as they toured Iowa State University, deciding which school she would inevitably end up attending on a track and […]

When Jessey and John decided on a venue to exchange their vows, Gainey Ranch Golf Club was the perfect fit, not only because of it’s beautiful location and mountain views, but because John is a huge golfer (he went to college on a golf scholarship!) and so is his grandfather and Jessey’s father.

Amelia and Faisal’s Blackstone Country Club wedding was an event to remember! After their amazing engagement session in Sedona, I knew that their wedding was going to be incredible. Not only were these two joining their lives together, but they were also bringing together their two cultures. With Amela originally from Serbia and Faisal from Afghanistan, […]

Julia and Matt’s wedding was incredible. The sun shone through the trees at The Farm at South Mountain, draping them in golden light as they shared an intimate moment, seeing each other before the ceremony. Matt has this amazing sense of humor that causes Julia to laugh such a beautiful and genuine laugh as soon as she’s […]

Aimee & Erik’s peach and patina […]

I had the pleasure of meeting Kara and Luke when they were out visiting Arizona this past summer from Colorado. I was so excited when they explained that they were having an Arizona destination wedding! I mean how cool is it to have friends and family fly in to the Valley of the Sun to […]

After spending the day with Lauren and Adam in Sedona for their engagement session, I knew without a doubt that their wedding was going to be a day to remember! And boy they didn’t disappoint!!! With heart-tugging moments as she got ready like when her father lent Lauren her mom’s wedding band to wear as a […]

When Danielle initially emailed me to see if I was available for her wedding date, I was so moved by her story of how she felt that her love was a page straight out of The Notebook. The fiancée, RJ swept her off her feet after meeting him by chance while both of them were […]

The minute I heard Oliver’s voice when I met with him and Mistie, I was nostalgic. His German accent, though faint, immediately took me back to a place and time that I miss so dearly. So you can imagine how excited I was to hear about how his family would be coming to their wedding, […]
