I was extra excited for these Red Knolls Family Photos. Why? Ricky and Dahana are some of my past Prickly Pear VIP wedding clients!! I first met them in 2018 for their vintage pie cafe inspired engagement session. Late that year we met up for their gorgeous Phoenix wedding. (If you’ve been around a while […]
It takes a village to raise a child and, as the Mother of the Bride kept saying, it took a village to put this Discovery Park Wedding together. When Covid changed plans for some friends and vendors, others stepped in and made things happen so Ethan and Emaleah could still have their incredible day. The […]
Anthony and Lomina’s Safford AZ Wedding was one for the books! From their carefully thought out details to the beautiful words by Father Nicodemus to the roast pig dinner to the gorgeous sunset and their incredible traditional Kiribati dance…this wedding was packed full of touching and memorable moments. Anthony and Lomina are kind, organized, and […]
When it comes to Mt Graham family photos, or any family photos for that matter, I love a location with a view. Being able to still be in the desert, but be high enough to get a view of the valley and the Safford mountains, this spot is a favorite. I went to college with […]
10 years ago I was taking pictures of Emilee and Chip…just dating. Not engaged. Just for fun pictures. But Cameron and I knew they wouldn’t keep that status for long. Last week I got to take their 10th Anniversary Portraits and it was absolutely epic.

October, 2020: Rachel and Jaime, I still look back at your wedding and get the warmest fuzzies in my heart! You two were so welcoming, sweet, and amazing. You inspired my Mini Wedding Experience because I knew I wanted with all my heart to work with more couples like you. Thank you for inviting me […]
John and Maya’s sunflower wedding day started early on a smoke filled morning in the Gila Valley. The sun was just a red ball through the smoke from the California fires. It kept the temperatures lower, which is never a complaint in southern Arizona! The day started early for us at Maya’s home where she […]
Every session I want to say, “This session was so special!!” But it’s true! Each one is!! This Mount Graham Engagement Session was special in many ways! Steve and Yesenia were my first couple to officially book for 2020. Yesenia messaged me months before I reopened to see about the possibility of having me shoot […]
Less than two weeks after Roger and Pat’s Engagement Session I got a message from them. “Hey, could you give us a call?” I’d just sent an email about getting wedding details figured out and thought we’d be talking about that. “Roger, do you want to tell her?”“We eloped!!” I cracked up and grinned. I […]
