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!

 

The Hicks Family

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

This was 2019

It’s a little late, but here’s my annual blog of my favorite photos from 2019. Bits from weddings, engagement sessions, family sessions, my own kiddos and family and of course, storms.

Hope you enjoy this look back!

Andrea & Brad’s engagement at Gate’s Pass

These two. They brought me whiskey and a diet coke. Forever in my heart 🙂

Wayne & Hop’s engagement at Merry-Go-Round Rock

A fantastic engagement session last fall in Sedona…even caught some fall colors despite being in a mostly red rock area!

Mark & Kendra’s engagement in Payson

From last fall…these two are amazing. Mark is an epic sports photographer and one of my favorite people out there. This shoot was smokin’…what a blast we had.

Megan & Jeff’s engagement at the Salt River

Megan and Jeff’s wedding is coming up in two days, so here’s their engagement photos from earlier this year!

James & Ayla’s engagement in Phoenix

Way behind with posting fun engagement sessions, here’s James and Ayla who got married in Tucson earlier this year. Had a blast with them in downtown Phoenix and then Papago Park for these engagement photos!

Never got around to sharing this engagement session between Ayla and James, but it was a blast. A drink at Carly’s before exploding some of downtown Phoenix and then hitting Papago Park!

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!

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!
