Michele & Matt’s wedding at The Croft

I love working with the great people at The Croft Downtown, such a beautiful venue with lots of cool spots nearby to do portraits. Michele and Matt were wonderful to work with, so chill and laid back…this was an easy one.

Elaine & Padraic’s engagement at Merry-Go-Round Rock

These two. Wow. From awhile ago, but I loved every minute of this session, from the Harley to the drinks at the end. These two were SOOO much fun!

Liza & Weston’s wedding at El Chorro

Liza and Weston were amazing to work with at their engagement session on The Salt River, so I knew the wedding would be a blast. Not to mention working with Andrea Leslie is always a treat, plus my second shooter Courtney and Desert House Productions!

First wedding at El Chorro, it’s a beautiful space, lovely views of Camelback Mountain and a great desert landscape right on property. The bride got ready at Mountain Shadows right across the street, which is also a stunning hotel with some gorgeous rooms.

Here are the photos, I hope you enjoy!

 

Hoisington, Kansas

Not gonna lie…I wish that bolt hadn’t blown out. This was shot at f/8 and ISO 100 during the DAY and it was still so powerful it blew out like this. However, the storm itself was so awesome and I still dig that bolt enough that I wanted to edit it and share it with you all.

From May 1st near Hoisington, Kansas…this supercell eventually would cross I-70 and drop a wedge tornado near Tescott.

Amy & Eric’s Wedding at Westin Kierland

Amy and Eric were such a pleasure to work with! An awesome day with some overcast skies that turned into an epic sunset at the end. Westin Kierland is a gorgeous venue, it was my first time there and it was highly enjoyable. Tears, a dog in a tux, an adorable flower girl and a crazy party…hope you enjoy this one!

The Rice Family

An unbelievably fun family shoot, with a dad tossing his daughter so high at the end, my heart jumped! Love it!

Katie & Jared’s engagement in Jerome

Katie and Jared were so fun to hang with in Jerome…we wanted to hit up the mining town, but it closed when we got there. But we wandered around outside and made lemons out of lemonade, and then hit a random dirt road that went off into the mountains for sunset. Nothing more fun than being able to just explore and find cool spots you’ve never seen!

The Mannarelli Family (and 1 year birthday cake smash!)

Every now and then I get to do a cake smash shoot…I think the last was like 4 years ago haha. This was a blast. Not to mention I’ve know Jenae and her mom & dad forever. So amazing to think that Jenae used to be this little girl who adopted me as a big brother way back then (goodness like 20 years ago), and now here she is married with a boy of her own. Congrats guys!

And so fun to have the grandparents along as well!

Kristin & David engagement at the Salt River

Kristin and David attend my church and are two wonderful people. Their wedding will be at New City Church in September with the reception at Wrigley Mansion following! Going to be a blast!

Alesha & Peter’s wedding at Desert Foothills

Alesha and Peter’s wedding at Desert Foothills was just beautiful. Lovely people, great family and tons of joy.
