Engagement Photos in Sedona | Ashley + Ian

I first met Ashley when I took photos of her and her mom and then again for her senior photos. She is always so happy and is just glowing :) I met Ian when I took his senior photos and could tell right away that these two were perfect together. Fast forward to last year they got engaged!! I was over the moon excited when they asked me to take their engagement photos and even more thrilled when they wanted them in Sedona. And if you even follow my blog a little bit you know it's a special place in my heart because that is where we got married <3 

While we had hoped for snow for their engagement photo in Sedona in December, it was still so beautiful! The outfits they selected looked so elegant in the location and I have to give major props to Ashley for trekking through the terrain in heels...she was a total champ.

Ashley + Ian have an amazing journey in front of them and I'm so happy I got to capture these memories for them! 



Southwestern Desert Wedding | Katelyn + Roy

The beautiful bride here is my cousin Katelyn and I remember when I first met Roy a few months ago at Thanksgiving he already felt like family. He was so easy going and relaxed...it felt like he's already been a part of the family for years! He's also an incredible artist and designed and painted their save the dates and invitations, which were amazing. 

When these two are together you can just see the magic between them. They 1000% compliment each other and it is so beautiful to see. They had a southwestern desert wedding at the Pioneer Living Historic Museum and it went perfectly with their style. They had blue geodes at each place setting and a cactus cake topper (which of course Roy made ;) They had their ceremony in the adorable little church on the property that was just oozing charm. Katelyn handmade all of the bouquets and boutonnieres that were the perfect compliment to everyone attire. And the reception was complete with a gun fight and a live band. It doesn't get much better than that :) 

These are some of my favorite images simply because I can see the love, happiness and thoughtfulness in each photograph. And I mean isn't Katie just incredible!! She has this timeless and effortless beauty...and Roy cleaned up very nice as well ;) 

Thank you both so much for allowing me to be a part of and capture your southwestern desert wedding!



McCormick Ranch Wedding Photography | Stephanie + Josh

When I envision a perfect Arizona day I'm pretty sure it was Stephanie + Josh's wedding day. The sun was shining and the temperature was just beautiful! I swear I don't know where Arizona's winter went, but I'm happy to not be totally freezing my butt off ;) 

Stephanie + Josh had a beautiful ceremony at St. Patrick's Catholic Church in Scottsdale. Usually catholic ceremonies have to start a bit early in the day so there is a little time between the reception and these guys had the best idea ever. They rented a party bus! All of the closest friends were on it and we went to a bar and had a drink and then hopped back on and headed to McCormick Ranch Golf Club. It was such a nice time for them to enjoy that time with their close friends and decompress a little from the beginning half of the day. 

McCormick Ranch was beautiful as ever and then sun was absolutely magical during their portraits <3 


The team was as good as ever and their day would not have been possible without them!
