Rain is such a foreign concept in the Phoenix area. We seldom give it any thought. When that strange looking cloud with little rain drops appears on your iPhone and you instantly think that it will just magically pass without causing any sort of interruptions to our plans, especially plans that involve a well orchestrated […]

Rain in the Desert | Wedding Mountain Shadows Resort

Mountain Shadows gay wedding

A thought occurred to me just now as I was looking at my instagram post from today.  The photo featured the fireplace in the Palmera Ballroom from an event at the Royal Palms about two months ago. (photo above) And then I noticed someone else – a wonderful wedding planner that we have the privilege […]

One Ballroom, Two Looks | Royal Palms Resort

wedding

“Every time I see you I fall in love all over again”. (I can’t find who this quote belongs to!!!!) I feel like this sentiment could not be more dead on for these two. They have been married long enough to have five beautiful children, survived a career that separated them at times but through […]

Happy in Love | Royal Palms Wedding

wedding

I’ll save all the words about this wedding day until my more extensive post once all the images have been edited. But I will say this, we have never been more moved by the love, devotion, support, friendship + loyalty of these two and their family. It may have been a little warm outside but […]

Vow Renewal | Wedding Sneak Peek | Royal Palms

wedding

Weddings take on many shapes and forms. What I love most about a wedding day is that the choice of venue, the choice of vendors, the outline for the day, generally reflects the personalities of the couple. There were so many special things about this wedding day that meant everything in the world to these […]

Rustic Wedding | Juniper Well Ranch | Skull Valley Prescott

wedding

This ranch near Prescott had so many great little spots for photos. Quaint, beautiful + rustic simultaneously. When choosing a photo for a sneak peek, we generally choose something we like a lot but not our absolute favorites. Those we save for the client when they get their full wedding photo reveal. But there is […]

Sneak Peek | Juniper Well Ranch | Prescott Wedding

wedding

It is no secret that Keith and I take an editorial approach to documenting a wedding day. We like to photograph the candid, emotional, unscripted moments that define the day. However, a beautiful portrait is absolutely a photograph that becomes an instant classic. Some clients ask us if they can hire us for a portrait […]

The Legacy of a Portrait | Wedding Arizona Biltmore

wedding

“Grow old along with me. The best is yet to be”. Robert Browning I have been wanting to write this blog post for awhile now. But somehow I just can’t seem to come up with the right words to describe how special this couple and this wedding was. Quite honestly, none of this would be […]

B+C | Destination Wedding at the Arizona Biltmore

wedding

These two were married this past weekend in an incredibly heartfelt ceremony at Eagle Mountain Golf Club in Fountain Hills. The ceremony site was drop dead gorgeous – as was the bride! (The groom looked pretty good too!!!) Can’t wait to share the wedding with them – what a beautiful day.  

Sneak Peek | Fountain Hills Desert Wedding

wedding

How happy does this gorgeous woman look towards the end of her portrait session? She isn’t a professional model, but a mother of five beautiful kids that did a friend a favor and modeled this handmade wedding dress. She is such an incredible spirit, peaceful and beautiful. How lucky are we that we get to […]

PABLO NERUDA

and when you appear all the rivers sound in my body, bells shake the sky, and a hymn fills the world.
