SABINO CANYON ENGAGEMENT SESSION | TUCSON, AZ

MARCI AND DEVON TRAVELED FROM NEW JERSEY TO GET MARRIED IN THE BRIDE’S HOMETOWN OF TUCSON, ARIZONA.

Two days before their wedding at The Lodge at Ventana Canyon, we ventured out to the east side of Tucson to wander around Sabino Canyon Recreation Area for a little wedding photo warm up. I highly suggest that all of my clients do engagement sessions with me for a couple of reasons: 1. It helps us get to know each other and you can get a feel for my shooting style (and learn all my moves so you’ll be a pro on your wedding day), 2. It both relieves the nerves and awkward feeling of being in front of the camera and adds excitement; suddenly your wedding starts to feel real!

Whether it’s 2 days or a year before your wedding, definitely consider an engagement session!

Enjoy marci and devon’s sabino canyon desert engagement session in tucson, arizona!

CARPINTERIA BLUFFS NATURE PRESERVE ENGAGEMENT PHOTOS

harry and bree get married exactly six months from today just miles from where we shot their engagement photos.

For this engagement session, we wandered around the paths and woods at Carpinteria Bluffs Nature Preserve, ending with sunset photos at Carpinteria State Beach.

Carpinteria is a special place for these two, as it’s where Harry’s family is from, and they even have a family memorial bench along the road to the beach where we stopped to pop some champagne and eat cake. It’s also where they will be tying the knot at Rincon Beach Club next Memorial Day weekend. If you wanted to see how to flawlessly dip or lift a girl, Harry has got it covered. These two were so fun to shoot, even jumping in the freezing ocean at the end of the engagement session. Happy six months until your wedding!

SAN FRANCISCO CITY HALL WEDDING | SAN FRANCISCO, CA

haleh and mitchell were married in front of close friends and family at san francisco city hall this past june.

Not only are these two some of the sweetest clients I’ve ever had, they are ridiculously in love and ridiculously stylish.

This was my first time inside San Francisco City Hall and I was in awe and immediately understood why Mitchell and Haleh ditched their earlier plans for a big wedding at a conventional venue in LA for this destination location. After a short and sweet wedding ceremony on the Mayor’s Balcony, the newlyweds and all their friends hopped on San Francisco’s quintessential mode of transportation- a trolley- and rode through town to the Golden Gate Bridge, where Mitchell had proposed to Haleh the year before. We sung the Friends theme song at the top of our lungs and the group hung off the trolley while the Full House theme song blared in the background- it was the perfect way to celebrate Mitchell and Haleh’s commitment to each other.
