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!

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.

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!

The Hedges Family

Cannot believe Pat and Chrystal have been married five years already! And little Sam is just the cutest!

Hopefully next year I’ll get to meet the new baby coming soon!

Maureen & Will’s wedding at Arizona Biltmore

Every now and then I get to shoot at the Arizona Biltmore and it’s always awesome. Love this one with Will and Maureen from earlier this year. Thanks to Courtney Larson for second-shooting and rocking it as always!

The Pratcher Family

This family just had another baby and I realized I never did share this beautiful portrait session from a few years ago!

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 Arizona Biltmore! And working with Care from Sterling Events was a treat!

Maddie & Alex’s engagement in Tempe

So much joy and laughter in these photos. Maddie and Alex were a blast to hang with, and we even ended up a bit of a stormy sunset!

Adela & Tomislav’s wedding at Orange Tree Resort

A wedding from last year. I’m way behind on my blogging, but this was a favorite from the spring. The ceremony was at the Blessed Sacrament Church and the reception at Orange Tree Resort.

Can’t really go wrong with umbrellas and top hats! Thanks Adela and Tomislav for trusting us with your big day!

Stephanie & Jeff’s wedding at The Windmill Winery

Stephanie and Jeff were such a blast to work with. Climbing fences, standing in roads, dancing and just being super chill the entire day. Love the red dress that Stephanie changed into during the reception too! And the bonfire! And the smores! And a beer donkey! And the cutest flower girl I’ve ever seen!

This was my first time shooting at Windmill Winery and it’s a place you aren’t really expecting to run into. You leave Phoenix, head towards Florence and it’s just desert. You don’t think there’s really a beautiful venue out this way, but then you pull into the drive and it’s gorgeous.  It was also my first time working with Courtney Larson, who second shot for me, and it was fantastic getting to know her.

Hope you enjoy the photos!
