From the minute Sierra and Zach told me their idea for their engagement session, I knew they were the coolest people ever. They wanted to go to all of their favorite bars in downtown Phoenix, get drinks, and take their engagement photos along the way (without getting kicked out - which we somehow pulled off). After a successful evening of fancy cocktails, giant burritos, and them saying yes to literally any photo idea, I was so thankful to have gotten to hang out with such down to earth people who truly just love the heck out of each other.
Sierra and Zach’s wedding was a celebration full of the same kind of fun-loving, silly, and beautifully heartfelt energy. Nestled in the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, Arizona, they exchanged vows and danced the night away under cacti and a shower of rose petals. These two compliment each other so perfectly that I am 100% convinced they were made for each other. Congratulations to Sierra and Zach and THANK YOU for letting me get to know you two incredible humans. It was really hard to choose, but here are some of my favorite photos to summarize their day…
A few months ago, I received an email from a client asking if I was willing to photograph her wedding because she had been turned down by other photographers for being a lesbian. This absolutely broke my heart because I am a firm believer that love is love, and love is beautiful in all of its forms. So of course the answer is YES, I photograph LGBT+ weddings and am here to celebrate your love right along with you.
Allicyn and Cherish made my heart so full and had me in tears multiple times during this day. Their affection for each other is so effortless, which you can see in their constant smiles and playfulness with each other. Thank you beautiful ladies for letting be a part of your special day.
I have to say, I absolutely love the getting ready photo portion of a wedding day. Once Coley put on her gorgeous dress, I couldn’t stop myself from taking a million photos. I had to share some of them!
I am still obsessing over how perfect this engagement session was with Christina and Eli. Estes Park provided a stunning backdrop for these two beautiful people in love.
I absolutely loved creating these intimate black and white photographs of Ashley and Tony at the most incredible venue - The Abbey in downtown Phoenix!
