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.

Sneaks and peeks

I’m so bad at blogging these days…so here’s some sneaks and fun shots from the past two months!

Matt & Alyssa’s wedding at Desert Foothills

So fond of Matt and Alyssa. From a wonderful engagement session up in Cave Creek to this beautiful wedding at Desert Foothills. I’ve shot at this venue a ton now…never gets old!

Abi’s senior session!

I’ve known Abi and her family since she was a little girl. It’s unbelievable to me that she’s somehow a senior in high school suddenly. What a blast to hang with her, her best friend and Abi’s mom Kathy. Such a fun time and I love these images!

Plus my daughter Lyla came along and makes a couple of appearances!

Brooke & Thomas’s New Years Eve wedding at Warehouse215

This was my fourth New Year’s Eve wedding in a row and I couldn’t imagine spending it with better people than Brooke and Thomas! Not to mention a past couple of mine, Julia and Pete, were related to Brooke! Made the entire day so much fun.

Plus hanging with my friend Courtney Larson who second shot, Riette from Warehouse 215 and a host of other awesome vendors made the event perfection. Hope you enjoy these images!

Alexis & Alex’s wedding at Carefree Resort

All the feels for this wedding. Alex and Alexis were incredible to work with, from their engagement photos to a wedding day where their nerves were high. But the moment they saw each other for the first time, they cried, they relaxed and the rest of the wedding was a party.

The Tillinghast Family

This is about the third time I’ve shot the Tillinghast family and it’s always a blast. Nick is an incredibly talented photographer who has been killing it lately, and it’s been awesome watching that happen! Love this entire group, hope you enjoy these images!
