TUMACACORI NATIONAL HISTORIC PARK WEDDING | TUBAC, ARIZONA

Lindsey and brian traveled from their home in los angeles for their desert wedding in the bride’s native southern arizona.

This fun and relaxed fall wedding took place at Tumacacori National Historic Park with the reception following at the bride’s parents house in Tubac, Arizona. The backdrop of the mission was what drew the couple to the ceremony site, and blended seamlessly with their bohemian, desert themed wedding.

Lindsey’s bridal look was flawless, from her pop of purple eyeliner, to her elegant updo with an organic headpiece, to her cutout lacy, floral gown by Rue de Seine. The bridal party carried blue, purple and green bouquets with succulent accents, and the bride’s bouquet was set apart with a lovely King Protea.

This October desert wedding had us all on our toes with the threat of rain. The weather held up through the ceremony, providing the most gorgeous cloudy Arizona sky I’ve ever seen. The rain did hit us at the reception forcing everyone inside and under the patio. But the rain actually turned out to be a great addition to the wedding. Not only was everyone brought together and had the opportunity to talk to people they never would’ve met, we also got some amazing rain photos under an umbrella. Lindsey and Brian delivered on their goals of good food, good cocktails and good wine.

Congrats Brian and Lindsey on your Southern Arizona wedding! You proved that rain can be a blessing in disguise on your wedding day!

LITTLE COTTONWOOD CANYON | SALT LAKE CITY, UTAH

I’m back home in Salt Lake City, Utah for the holidays so I had to plan a quick winter shoot in the snow with this adorable couple!

Jessica and Kelton are not only gorgeous but they are so sweet and great in front of the camera. They drove up to my dad’s house in Little Cottonwood Canyon just a few miles down from the ski resorts. We hiked down the trail just outside our front yard and ventured into the snow for a quick winter portrait session.

Enjoy this snowy portrait shoot in Little Cottonwood Canyon!

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!
