Melissa and Bryan

Well I just got back from Melissa's and Bryan's wedding at the Moon Valley Country Club. The wedding was gorgeous and Melissa looked fabulous.

Below are some of my favorites pictures! Enjoy.

The Beautiful Dress

The Fun and crazy girls!!

The Wedding Party

I love this shot because it is of the little flower girl running up to Bryan to be a part of the picture! She was so cute.

Bryan and Melissa

Congratulations you guys!! You both looked great!!! Have an awesome honeymoon!!


Little Ones

I just got done color correcting the pictures for Matthew's first photo session with me. Louisa, one of my first brides, called about 3 weeks ago wondering if I did baby photos. Of course I said "YES"!!! So I went over to their house and took Matthews 4 Month baby pictures and they turned out great!! What a cute kid. He did such a great job. Below are a few of my favorites.

LeAnne and Mark

I had such a great weekend!!! LeAnne and Mark were such a blast. Their wedding party was so much fun as well. Seriously just look at these pictures and tell me they weren't a crazy fun group!

The wedding was at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club and the wedding party got ready at the Millineum Hotel, right across the lake.

The Dress and Shoes

LeAnne getting ready.

I absolutly LOVE this shot. It is one of my favorites. LeAnne looks so HOT!!!

Mark and LeAnne caught on fast... I like lots of kissing:)

Don't they look like super models?

The girls were awesome. They had a great time and came up with some fun shots to do!!

The entire wedding party was crazy!!! We all had a lot of fun taking the pictures. LeAnne didn't want anything stuffy. She kept telling everyone to jump or run or do something different.

Now tell me we didn't have fun with these two!!

The guys were great! We played football and goofed around.

The Ceremony. LeAnne's mom walking down the aisle.

LeAnne and her dad. This was a special moment. LeAnne is his Angel, so it was hard letting go. However, in his speech he thought pretty highly of Mark. I actually cried during the toasts. This was a special couple.

They did it!!!!! Pure Joy!

Now sometimes in Arizona you can get an amazing sunset, but sometimes you can't. The night before the sunset was nonexistent... but on Saturday this sunset was there just for LeAnne and Mark.

You were both so much fun to work with, and your wedding party was great as well. Thanks for letting me be a part of it. If you all want to see a slideshow of some of our favorites throughout the day just click here.


Michelle and Jeff

On Friday we were at the Four Seasons Troon North photographing Michelle and Jeff's wedding. It was fabulous and we had a lot of fun with them.

Michelle got ready at the Four Seasons Salon. If you are getting ready there let us know and we will recomend who to go with for your hair and makeup!

Michelle's Maid of Honor purchased some Bloody Mary's to help with some of the drama of the day. Michelle's sister had to have a taste and thought it was quite good!!!

The Dress and the shoes.

Wasn't Michelle Gorgeous?

Michelle and Jeff saw each other before the wedding, which really helped the entire day go so much smoother. It also gave them some time to let their nerves relax. We were able to take a lot of amazing pictures as well!

The ceremony was gorgeous, as it always is at the Four Seasons. They also had the reception outside in the same place and people were amazed at the setting.

People always ask if when the bride and groom see each other before for pictures if it is still special walking down the aisle. Well, look at Jeff... I can say he is pretty emotional seeing Michelle walk down the aisle. Yes, it is still a very special moment.

Congratulations to both of you!!! If you would like to see a slideshow of some of our favorites from the wedding please click here.

It has been a busy busy week!

I have been going nonstop the last couple of weeks. We are very much in our busy season, but having a great time. On Saturday I had the opportunity to photograph Sarah and Jeff's wedding at Aldea in Phoenix. We had a great time and got some great pictures. Sarah looked gorgeous and blew everyones socks off!

On Sunday I was able to do 12 different family photo sessions at Silverleaf country club. I met some great families and we got some great pictures!!

Wednesday I was able to shoot Matthew McConnell, who is the 4 month son of one of my first Bride and Grooms, the McConnells. He is such a cutie and I can't wait to show off some of the pictures.

Tomorrow, Friday, I am photographing the Duplisse/Dunn Wedding at the Four Seasons and on Saturday I get to spend the day with the Ramsey/Conklin families at the McCormick Ranch Golf Club.

We have also been busy doing a lot of different albums and engagement sessions!! Thanks for your patience in this busy season! We are trying to find some people to help us with things in the office!

Hopefully soon I will be able to post a lot more pictures up, but until then, here are some pictures from Sarah and Jeff's wedding last Saturday.
