Sami and Lionel's Roosevelt Row Engagement Session

These two walruses share a lot of things in common, besides their spirit animal. They are both therapists, don't take themselves too seriously, and are unique to the core. We wanted their Phoenix engagement session to reflect that. Roosevelt Row was a perfect choice for them with the mix of beautiful murals and unique textures. And we did pretty dang good. We laughed a lot. We used a Polish bar for a background which reflected Sami's heritage nicely. We even thought we were getting arrested at one point. You know, all the stuff a session with me comes with. :) I love this set and I think we got a good mix of everything.

Here is some of the best art we created during their Roosevelt Row engagement session.

Downtown Phoenix is pretty rad. You are too. If you want to do an engagement session there or anywhere, send me a note and let this photographer show you it's true. 

Carrie and Ben's Phoenix Backyard Wedding

I love all the historic neighborhoods in downtown and midtown Phoenix. The older houses there are filled with such charm and character. Fitting that two people with such charm and character would choose to hold their intimate Phoenix wedding at an Airbnb in the Coronado neighborhood. Carrie and Ben were joined by their closest family members, as well as Ben's trusty steed of a Dodge Dakota, as they tied the knot. Afterward they drank champagne, we had some fun making silly photos, and we all showed off our bling. It was pretty perfect. 

Here are some of the best images from their Midtown Phoenix backyard wedding.

Megan and Alex's Intimate Sedona Wedding

The superpowers of Sedona never disappoint. Megan and Alex sure don't either. These two wanted an intimate wedding to celebrate with those closest to them in a place that reflected their love of the outdoors and exploration. After the wedding ceremony , they gave me free reign to make amazing images with them and this incredible place. We even headed over to L'Auberge where they were staying and had some fun over there too. The results look as tasty as the amazing baked goods I see Alex whip up over on Instagram. 

Here is visual proof that an intimate Sedona wedding and Alex and Megan make a winning combo.
