Know what is exciting? I wedding teaser!

What is more exciting? Knowing that teaser will turn into a post later this evening!

Just a taste from Desiree and Mike’s Somis wedding at Hartley Botanica.


Wedding Teaser: Michael + Desiree

Just over two weeks ago I received an inquiry from the contact form on my site. The e-mails go directly to my phone so I always run over to a computer as fast as I can. Yes, I still get that excited.

From the moment I read Jessica’s response to the “Where did you find me?” Question I knew she was my type of bride. Aside from being full of smiley faces and exclamations(two things I probably use too frequently in e-mails) she stated that she found me through a “Serendipitous Google search.” I thought “I like this gal already!”

I noticed she was in Arizona, Tucson to be exact. I immediately ran to my calendar (which isn’t hard cause it’s on my computer) and figured out the next time I would be making the jaunt to the good ol’ AZ. In a week! Perfect! I let Jessica know that I was going to be able to meet and we decided to start with her and Adams engagement session since Adam is leaving for grad school in just a few short weeks. Everything just seemed to work out so perfectly.

We met up last Saturday in downtown Tucson and ventured out for their e-session. It was a hot day (107 ouch!) but we survived, had a blast, and got some rad photos doing it. I simply cannot wait for their wedding next August at the Hotel Congress in downtown Tucson.

Without further adieu

    Adam Squier - How fun are these? The "love seat," the sunflowers — everything. It's nice to see that you did some individual portraits, too. The blue wall is perfect.ReplyCancel

Currently finishing up the editing on Jessica and Adams engagement session in Tucson and all I can say is, adorable and super hot!

So here is an adorable teaser for you!


Engagement Teaser: Jessica + Adam

Look out for the full post tomorrow!

Wow! The past few weeks have been full of shooting and traveling! It doesn’t seem to be slowing down anytime soon either. I love getting to go all over to shoot!

Yesterday I got back from a weekend filled with: my 2 yr old niece, A senior Session, An Engagement Session, painting, and a whole lot of driving! I cannot wait to share all the photos with you from my recent shoots.

Today we start with the amazingly nice and beautiful Hannah (or Hbug as she is affectionately known). Hannah is a real southern gal hailing from Tennessee. She happened to be out in Arizona the same weekend I was out to shoot an engagement session and meet with my AZ brides so we decided we would go ahead and do her Senior session there!

We loosely played with the idea of Alice in Wonderland for her shoot because she looks so much like Alice! At least I think she does…

So here are some of my personal favorites from our Session in Mesa and Tempe Arizona.
