This is a topic that I feel like is consistently 50/50 on whether or not couples want to have a first look on their wedding day.

Why a first look?

The groom in the black tux has turned around to see his bride in her ivory gown. He has a smile on his face, and her body language is elated. Location is Mortimer Farms, Prescott, Arizona


The honor of being chosen to photograph people’s most memorable and intimate moments is most definitely not lost on me, and if it ever is, I fully believe that I will not be working in this the way God has chosen me to.  And when Emily asked me to be her photographer a year ago, […]

Kylee + Justin – a Scottsdale Desert Session

Beautiful Scottsdale Arizona Desert Engagement Photography


Before any session with my couples, I really like to send over a few questions that allow that couple to tell me who they are in their own words.  You see, telling their story is what my job is.  Not just my vision of their story. One of my favorite questions to have answered is: “If […]

Meagan + Ted – an Arizona Snowy Engagement


Before I even began writing this out I had to sit back and really think about how I was going to word this, because I wouldn’t say that I have just one favorite kind of session I love, because if I’m being honest there are different why’s behind each one for me! So, maybe you’re […]

We’re Engaged! Now what?


   Nadia & Jeremy approached me way back in the early summer to chat about what we could all do together to capture their engagement session and upcoming wedding date. At the time, while we attended the same church we didn’t, yet, know each other that well.  Most likely because I’m an introverted extrovert (true […]
