Something magical happens every year in the AZ desert.  In about the time span of a week or two, if we are lucky, wildflowers and flowering bushes suddenly erupt in color.  

It’s pretty amazing to see, and even more amazing when it lines up with a photo session!  Hands down, one of the best places in the South-East valley to see this is at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve.

This was the setting of our evening for Shelby’s senior session.  The park was bursting with an array of yellow bushes, trees, and ground flowers. 

It was a perfect match for Shelby’s bright personality! Shelby is another senior I’ve had the privilege of “blossom” into a beautiful young lady.

As we walked around the lake, we took advantage of the lake and the foliage. 

At one point, we even found a place that looked like a pre-made senior photo backdrop with yellow flowers climbing up a rustic horse fence!

We made sure to include the iconic AZ mountains in the background as well as some saguaros. 

An all-around great evening with Shelby and her mom!

Senior portrait sessions are always such a great experience.  It allows me to be creative and take time to set up and capture images that really express the senior’s personality.  

They are even better when it’s someone I’ve had the privilege of watching grow up for years – what an honor to be able to document such a special time!

Megan and her mom were wonderful to work with.  We planned the session, with clothing, props, and any general expectations, then just went with it. 

We started about an hour before sunset, at one of my favorite south Tempe locations.  As we walked the park, we took advantage of the water fall, trees, and beautiful lake background.

I also brought my awesome light-weight upholstered chair to bring a contrasting element to the natural background. 

Megan is a beautiful, sweet, and talented young lady.  We had so much fun capturing some great shots that really showcase her passions and personality. 

We were actually having such a good time, that I was sad when the sun set and brought a close to our session!

It’s always heartwarming to see friends and family come together in celebration of a wedding, and this one was no exception!  This happy couple chose an intimate setting nestled up in the trees of Prescott. Apple Creek Cottages, where friends and family can stay in their own vintage cottages for the weekend, is a great place to get away from the heat of the valley.  And to have a beautiful wedding out in nature. 

The day was incredible, trees were just starting to share their new spring buds and the clouds sheltered us from the hot sun – and made a wonderful filter for the photographs!  The sun did peek out to shine on them while their vows were shared, but slipped behind the clouds soon after.

As everyone scurried around to prepare, the talented Mr. Kevin Huang provided amazing background music on his violin and classical guitar.  Smiles were abundant as the excitement was building. Everyone there knew the sweet love story this couple shared started many years ago when they were young.

You see, they had met at a national chess tournament as kids. 

And though Todd tried to keep a connection with Tarina by writing letters, distance and time separated them for years. 

Life went on for each of them in different states. 

But at just the right time, God strategically brought back together by Facebook. 

The innocent childhood crush turned out just to be the beginning of their beautiful love story.

It was a pleasure to help document this special day of theirs, and be able to witness the special bonds they have created over the years with their close friends and family.  I think the joy of the day is reflected in the images, and the fun memories can be relived for a lifetime!

 Sweet, small, delightful, and simply beautiful – just a handful of words that run through my mind when I think back to my one of my close friend’s wedding. 

What a day to celebrate! What may have seemed like a whirlwind, long distance relationship at first – was really two long-lost friends who reconnected in the last couple years. 

A seedling romance budded into a beautiful relationship. . . that led to this memorable backyard wedding!

Some family and a handful of friends gathered in this charming Tempe backyard to celebrate this heartwarming event.

We did not have manicured ceremony grounds and gardens with all the bells and whistles to work with, but the simple beauty of the day gave it a magic that was truly a blessing for everyone who was there to share in it.

Prior to the ceremony, we had a reveal – when the bride and groom had a quiet moment to see each other for the first time in all of their wedding splendor. 

These images are always sweet. 

The expressions clearly show all of their excitement.

After the reveal, we snapped all of the portraits of the bridal party and family. 

Then we did a small bride/groom session. 

Considering it was noon, and a super sunny day – (not ideal for portraits) – we managed to get some lovely images. 

Once all of the “formals” were done, the bride and groom were free to enjoy the ceremony and celebration without having to step away again.

And I was free to just roam and capture the moments as they happened!
