Lauren & Andrew’s wedding at the Arizona Biltmore

The love Andrew has for Lauren was evident the first time I met them, during their engagement photos and finally at the wedding. He adores her, you could see it at their first look at how overwhelmed he became. Nothing makes a wedding better than genuine emotions like that. Such a great day at the […]


Drove 45 minutes for about 14 minutes worth of shooting and that was it…but what a way to kick off Monsoon 2017 four nights ago just northeast of Casa Grande.

Undulatus Asperatus Sunset (Asperitas)

Kelsey & Brian’s wedding at The Paseo

All contained in one spot, beautiful desert surrounding it, I really enjoy looking around and exploring this place! But the day was made absolutely incredible by this couple and their […]
