Bliss & Will’s backyard wedding in Paradise Valley

One of the last weddings I shot this past spring, was also one of my favorites. Bliss’ stunning, colorful wedding dress, the intimate backyard setting…it was a blast to be a part of this one.

Andrea & Brad’s Elopement at Merry-Go-Round Rock

What a blessing this wedding was and these people were, in the midst of a chaotic year and so much hardship going on. Thankful to Andrea and Brad for being considerate and thinking about their family and friends more than about having a huge wedding. This sweet little elopement was magical and beautiful.

Luis & Lauren’s wedding at The Paseo

One of my favorite venues is The Paseo, and absolutely loved this wedding from this past fall. Lauren and Luis were the first wedding in the spring that had to postpone because of the pandemic, and they were my first fall wedding! Loved how awesome they were about doing most everything outdoors, spaced, with masks for everyone who needed one. Felt very safe and everyone was incredibly kind!

This was 2020

2020. What a year. I truly don’t want to get into the crap that happened over the past 10 months, but I will say, the number of photos I have here are a lot less than normal. Under a 100. I think I usually can’t keep it below 150!

Canceled weddings, subpar spring chase season, horrific monsoon, lack of motivation and a general lackluster year led to less opportunities. But…I’m incredibly blessed to have seen what I did see in a year when people were mostly holed up in their homes keeping safe and healthy. So many of my friends were unable to travel to the United States to chase this year and so I feel super lucky to have been able to get out at all!

As always, these are generally in order of when they happened. Thankful to all my amazing clients who return every year for annual family photos, it means so much to me! Some pics of my wife and kids in here of course, I only wish I had taken more photos of them this year.

Hope you enjoy this look at my favorite pics from 2020!

Needing to get more stuff blogged, here’s a fantastic engagement/family session last fall!

Julia & Dylan’s wedding at The Paseo

From spring 2020, a few weeks before everything shut down. The desert flowers surrounding The Paseo were stunning!

Bill & Jonathon’s wedding at Cochise Geronimo Clubhouse

There’s nothing about this wedding I didn’t love.
