The Music of Souljourn

Recently I had the wonderful opportunity to shoot a couple of great bands. Souljourn is a soulful rock band, and their original stuff is really a joy to hear. Check out their schedule either on their website or on Facebook and you will not be disappointed.

Summer Weddings

Summer is not considered an optimum time to get married in Arizona because it’s a gazillion degrees outside. But summer is also a GREAT time to get married in Arizona, because dates are still open! For 2011, I am offering special pricing for summertime weddings. Contact me to arrange a consultation.

Justin’s Senior Portraits

Justin’s a dynamic senior with huge talents. Juggler, performer, flutist, athlete, parkour runner, Christian, and all-round solid young man. We met up last Thursday and did his senior portraits. We had a great time and got loads of fun photos! I would seriously injure myself if I tried three quarters of the things he does with ease. Amazing!

Lisa & Jesse, 19 March 2011

Saturday’s wedding at The Phoenician in Phoenix, AZ was a long one, a beautiful one with a lovely couple and delightful families. Anne of One Fine Day Photography and I were privileged to photograph the wedding of Lisa and Jesse, and we had plenty of time to make beautiful photos for these two doctors who have pledged their lives to helping people who are ill. A fantastic day with a deserving couple who are truly well-matched!

The Perfect Valentine’s Day Gift for Him

So what DO you get for him for Valentine’s Day? Tickets to the game? New tires for his car? Um….

You know he loves you, and you know you love him. The best gift you can possibly give to him on Valentine’s Day is a gift just for him, a gift that is ONLY for him — the gift of you.

An elegant, tasteful boudoir or intimate photography session is a beautiful way to show your love for him. Make him a beautiful photo album, a large canvas art print for your bedroom wall, or a personal series of boxed photographs, and he will always cherish your gift to him.

Schedule your session soon, to allow for the most timely delivery of your images.

Valentine's Day Gift -- a Beautiful Boudoir Session

Allison and Kyle up North in Sedona

On a beautiful rainy day in Sedona, Allison and Kyle were joined together before close friends and family in a small ceremony at L’Auberge Hotel. Initially intended to be outdoors by Oak Creek, the rains came and so we were moved indoors. Allison didn’t let this put a damper on the day, though, and we took advantage of the beautiful diffused light and the spectacular locations to get some stunning photos both before and after the wedding. Allison’s flowers were prepared by Bliss Extraordinary Floral of Sedona to augment Allison’s beauty. Enjoy!

Kirsten and Tony at The Phoenician

One would think that October in Phoenix is supposed to be COOL. Someone must have forgotten to tell the funny little man who has his hand on the weather switch and changes it from hot to cool, though, because it was a not-so-balmy 106 degrees when Kirsten and Tony tied the knot at the Phoenician on October 1st. Phil Waring joined the couple in matrimony at the gazebo. Kirsten couldn’t have been more beautiful, and Tony looked great in his tuxedo, and the bridal party was jovial. We had fun shooting around the grounds of the Phoenician, and then after the ceremony we went up to the Recreation Center at Cimarron Hills Clubhouse for the reception. The reception overlooked the city lights of beautiful Scottsdale, Arizona. What a beautiful day, even with the heat, and congratulations to Kirsten and Tony!

Allison and Kyle Engagement Session

Allison and Kyle are getting married in October at L’Auberge in Sedona. They are such a lovely couple, fun and sweet together. Good-looking, too, but that’s just a bonus to how much fun we had shooting in a gazillion degree heat in Scottsdale. We couldn’t tell that they were sweating like crazy, because the photos came out so well. Engagement sessions are included in most of my wedding coverage packages. If you’re getting married somewhere else, I can do an engagement session for you here in Arizona too! Contact me for details and to schedule a consultation.

Heroes and Ambulances

Last week I had the privilege of photographing the PMT Ambulances in Peoria, Arizona. These people are the ones out on the road all day, every day taking care of those who are in need of medical assistance; they took time out of their day to line up their vehicles for my camera. The scissorlift was a little unnerving, but hey, it’s nothing compared to what the crews of these vehicles go through every day. Hats off to these heroes.
