StORIES

Here are some of my all time favorite sessions for you to enjoy. Photography should never be about taking a nice picture but should be about actually capturing the people you are photographing. Listen, I love great photos too but images should remain timeless by revealing who YOU really are.

DEMI + ANT

I got to tag along to this wedding and I couldn’t have been more excited. I went with Jamie Allio Photography to Warehouse 215 to capture Demi + Ant. Every detail was polished. Everything was unique and different. The bridesmaids bouquets down to a confetti throw.

Chris + Paige

These two are an absolute charm. Not only are they one of the most gorgeous human beings on the planet but they are also unbelievably kind hearted. With their little baby Willow on the way they have such a glow about them. Chris teaches and practices yoga and Paige is a local model. Shesh, thats going to be one beautiful kiddo!

Ashton + Steven

I have known Ashton since seventh grade. Back when she had bleach blonde hair and I wore everything out of the boys department. We have remained friends all these years. She does my hair, lives right down the street, was in my wedding, and now is expecting a little human! This pregnancy announcement is going to make you light up inside you just wait and SEE!

Jamie + Gunnar

This adorable mom and son duo. Jamie is a local photographer in the Arizona with a special skill in Alternative Weddings. I have been in love with her work for years so when she asked me to take her photos I about peed my pants. Her art is amazing but her and her son are even more AMAZING!

TAYLOR + TONY

Taylor and Tony were also one of my giveaway winners and I felt like the whole time we were shooting were laughing. I ended up getting to know them and a little bit about the story. Guess what? Ill be shooting there wedding next year and I'm kinda freaking out! They even decided to cancel their previous photographer to have me be apart!

JANELLE + MIKE

For New Years this year my husband and I went to Flagstaff, AZ to get some fresh air and mountain views. Janelle and Mike tagged along for the ride. This session actually came on spontaneously when I asked them to let me sneak a couple photos while we all took our dogs to a nearby field. They imminently went for it and its my favorite session thus far!

ANDI + ANDREA

When couples ask me if they can bring along their fur children I ALWAYS say, "Yes,please!!." I grew up in a home where animals were treated like family. My mom always has at least five dogs at a time. These two are sold out animal lovers and they will always fit in with me no problem! I cannot wait to see this red dress she has been raving so much about!

Nicole Senior session

Nicole is seriously as cute as a button! I have been trying to promote to seniors for awhile now but it seems like everyone is already doing it. I snagged a couple photos of Nicole in Downtown, Phoenix in the art district. Tons of vibrant color and graffiti! I love when senior sessions feel fun and not to posed so I knew we had to go there, click the link to see all the giggles.

Celeste + Zumi

These are the brightest edits I have ever done. I met the couple through Fox Restaurant Concepts while working there. If you had the chance to actually meet them you would know that they are the sweetest human beings on the planet. They never talk negatively and are ALWAYS happy! I truly mean that! Celeste wanted very bright edits to capture who they really are and wanted it to feel like fairytale.

ASHLINN + JAKOB

This was my first ever beach session and I am beyond blown away with the images. Even though we started early and they got stuck in gnarly traffic we made it worth it. Can I please get more of you to do a beach session. I might be a little obsessed!                                               -

Janelle + catfish (christy)

Yep, all his friends call him catfish and for good reason and best kept a secret. These few photos were taken at a hot spring on the road. These two rock clay like Lush body masks. This is probably the most unique adventure yet. This gallery has a little bit of everything!

MUÑIZ WEDDING

When Selina + Nate first booked with me I was most excited about the fact that they were having a wedding in the woods. They wanted their wedding to reflect nature and their intimacy. If you click on the Muniz Wedding you can see the whole entire day - you can also see their engagement session below! 

Selina + Nate

WOAH, look at that freaking view! Selina and Nate both met in college and both have a common love for nature. Selina is a biology teacher and Nate works for AZ parks. So naturally they wanted to do a session in Sedona but from a fresh perspective and I think we nailed it. So many giggles and landscapes in this gallery and I'm loving it!

nicole + Cody 

You have probably seen these two on my Instagram quite a bit! These two were my first ever engagement session a year or so ago. I had the wonderful pleasure of capturing their wedding and I'm blown away by all the details. They even had a pet adoption kissing booth where you could hug and cuddle adoptable doggies! All five puppies got forever homes! 

Heather + KYLE

Heather has been on my books for quite some time and their evening did not disappoint. She got married at The Wright House in Mesa, Arizona. It was full of so much greenery and flowers I could barely handle myself. I feel as though most of my wedding have a strong desert feel but not this wedding - I was in plant paradise! 

MATT + TAYLOR

I had the wonderful privilege of second shooting this wedding for @Jamieallio and I'm still in awe of how gorgeous all the small details were. The flowers were vibrant and the mood was romantic. I am going to be obsessing over these for awhile. PLUS YOU GOTTA CHECK OUT THESE FLORALS!

ANDREA + PERRY

With Andrea and Perry we did two sessions to better capture them as whole.  They wanted to show off their love for Arizona but also find a way to capture their fur babies! We did a downtown location with their pups and headed to the Superstition Mountains for their romantic engagement story.

Ashton + Steven

I think at times we look so hard for the perfect spot and the best location but it cannot always happen. This little session was a quick one and we ended up at a small location right around the corner from my home. Getting outside of my comfort zone to shoot somewhere I pass by everyday on my way home was such a treat. CHEERS!

LEXI + JON

Lexi and Jon take the cake for the classiest wedding around. Everything was so simple yet detailed all at the same time. She had some of her bridesmaids wear jumpsuits and others wear dresses. The whole wedding was a fashion statement. Check out where they did their first look!

Baby hudson

Ashton has been a dear friend of mine for years. It has been such a honor to see her in all her accomplishments and now I get to see her start her own little family. Not only are Ashton and Steven the sweetest people but they also are going to have a supermodel baby! I might be a little jealous.

Brittney + RYAN

Brittney and Ryan are probably the nicest people on the planet. These two love birds won a Giveaway on my Instagram and I'm blown away with how dedicated they were to the session. They came with outfit changes in hand and a disco ball as a shirt! It was sooooo flipping GORGEOUS!

Tara + Mclovin

These  lovely humans flew me out to Idaho on there vacation to capture some photos and we are basically best friends now. Tara is just as crazy and loud as me and thats a tough thing to match! She is from Detroit though so it makes sense. She rescues and fosters animals and currently owns 7 badass senior doggies  and they are all way too adorable.

Taylor + Cal

When Taylor and Cal originally wanted to do their photos they wanted them to be San Fransisco! They love the city and all its gorgeous views! With all of us living in Arizona at the current moment and them owning their own crossfit gym we settled for Downtown Phoenix! It was PERFECT!

Jeanne + EJ

I had the wonderful opportunity of supporting a local photographer, Kayla Fisher, on this romantic wedding. Being a second shooter I primarily assist her in all her needs throughout the day. Here are some of my favorite picks <3

ROCHELLE + TYLER 

I met this giggle couple through a close friend of mine and we have been friends ever since. Whether its getting all of us girls together for a wine night or just enjoy each others company. Tyler and Rochelle are newly engaged and planning their wedding. They are thinking about having a slightly vintage theme with a few old school staples! Cannot wait!

Nicole + Cody

This couple has been together as long as time it feels like. I love seeing such a young couple make it such a long time. They were one of my first ever photography clients and have stuck with me ever since. I am sitting over here in awe that they enjoy my art so much. I get to photograph their wedding in February. Woop Woop!

KAmryn + tyler

This year I'm getting the lovely opportunity to capture Kamryn and Tyler's wedding. With their package they had a complimentary engagement session and when booking they told me that they actually won a giveaway by another photographer. So to still get that bonus session we did their family photos at Papago Park, AZ. Their little boy Brody was the happiest kid on the planet the whole time!
