I’ve actually known Stacy since she was a little girl. That makes me sound older than I actually am, but I was just a young girl myself! I would sometimes tag along with a friend for horseback riding lessons that her mom gave. It’s a different experience photographing a wedding when you know most of the guests! Our good friend Josh was even the officiant! I always like to get comfy with the couples I’m working with and have fun with the guests, but it’s so nice and relaxing being around familiar faces.
This was such a romantic and simple day. The details were delicate. It could’ve been a little too warm but we were blessed with the perfect breeze. The location was at a clubhouse that doesn’t get much use anymore, but it really should! It was the perfect backdrop for Stacy’s style.
I can’t wait to share the rest of the images with Stacy and Cody! John and I both enjoyed ourselves immensely.
I was excited to photograph this wedding just a few minutes into meeting Kristie and Mike for the first time! Their wedding seemed to be the perfect mix of classic elegance meets laid back party on the Colorado River! You might not think that those two could mix, but if you’ve ever visited the river then you know its entirely possible!
The wedding was at the BlueWater Resort and we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. The ceremony was held on the island with the river and Mohave Desert as a stunning backdrop. Kristie wore fabulous heels and walked down possibly the longest aisle ever. I couldn’t have walked five feet in them! The arch for the ceremony was made by Mike himself! It’s such a beautiful piece of art.I have to admit I’m a tad jealous of his mad welding skills.
The twinkly dance floor was packed for the entire night. Everyone seemed to have the moves, from the toddlers to the bride and groom’s grandparents.
Kristie and Mike still have a trash the dress session coming up and I have big plans for the both of them! I can’t wait to work with these two again very soon.
Congratulations Kristie and Mike, we had a blast at your wedding!
Had a great time with Hank and his family a couple weeks ago out on the Colorado River. They were visiting from Idaho (they have a vacation home in the area) and decided they wanted fun river portraits. The perfect senior photos are ones that reflect the interests of the teens I’m photographing. It’s such a hard life when they tell you they like to wake surf. Darn… I guess we’ll have to spend an evening on the boat with you.
Silly me forgot to bring a pair of shorts for this session and I ended up soaked in river water up to my thighs. The water is still a bit chilly for my tastes but it was totally worth it. We grabbed some great shots and I look forward to working with Hank and his family again this summer! Can’t wait!
John and I had a great time photographing Corey’s senior session a couple weeks ago! He mentioned that he wanted some photos with his dirt bike and I decided to run with it. We started out at Emerald Canyon Golf Course since Corey is an avid golfer as well, then hit the Arizona desert for some off roading photos. I’m so pleased with how these turned out and I’m glad Corey and his family thought it was just as cool to go off road a bit to an old mine for portraits. It was the perfect sunset for this session!
Graduation is coming up fast but there’s still time to book your high school senior session! I’d love to hear your ideas and incorporate your interests into the session. Making these so personal make them so much more meaningful in the long run… plus a heck of a lot of fun!
Thanks John for grabbing this. Sometimes you have to get a little dirty to get the shot!
