We get to know each of our couples and adore sharing their photos and stories on our blog. Grab a soft blanket and some cocoa. You might be here for a while.

Warmth, joy and love. Hello wedding couple photos.

A beautiful Mountain View desert landscape made for a dreamy backdrop as Brittany got ready for her wedding. The scene: her mom’s house, an adorable spread of gifts for the bridesmaids, a charcuterie board, and sparkling wine. Brittany shared a moment with her close friends, snuggling up on the bed for a heartfelt toast. They […]

With everything that’s been going on this year, it’s easy to forget about what we’re thankful for. Heck, we almost even forgot to make this post! The world is a crazy place, but there’s plenty to appreciate, even now. We’re thankful for each other, for one. If we hadn’t met, we wouldn’t be having nearly […]

Picture it: a sunny October day, dancing with loved ones on a mountaintop overlooking the entire city, boogieing down as the sun sets over the horizon before breaking out glow sticks and partying alongside your forever partner. That’s what Kate and Ryan did for their wedding. Kate and her bridal party had a private suite […]

Hi everyone! I’m really excited about today’s post: I had the chance to take Tristan on his first camping trip!  There’s something special about camping. Northern Arizona has plenty of trees and great weather to escape from the Valley on occasion. Mix that with campfire-roasted hot dogs and marshmallows, amazingly starry skies, and plenty of […]

A lot of our blog posts mention how locations for photoshoots and wedding venues transport us away from Phoenix and to more magical places, to hidden gardens and Spanish villas. Between the Arizona heat and the everyday hustle and bustle, many of us stop seeing the good parts of the Valley of the Sun.  It’s […]

Hello, everyone! Today, I wanted to talk a little bit about associate shooting. You might have read Jo’s post about second shooters, so this is kind of a continuation of that, a little peek into what it’s like being a wedding photographer. Jo and I were the associate photographers for a colleague recently, which was […]
