I was in Phoenix when I had my wedding consult with these two. We clicked right away, and soon after they booked me to photograph their wedding! We lucked out with the most perfect, Fall day, for the engagement session! The leaves were at their peek color, and it wasn’t too cold either. I cannot […]

One of my favorite families ever, and my dear friends! I met the Andersons before they were the “Andersons,” and it’s been so fun to see them become a family. Their little girl has the best personality, and this session was all about chasing her around – she’s FAST!!! The little moments and faces we […]

I’m not gonna lie, I’m totally missing these warmer weather sessions. Josh and Kayla absolutely nailed their session, and followed my style guide to pick the most perfect outfits! They look like movie stars, and I can’t wait for their wedding at 7 Vines Vineyard!!! Stay tuned for a second post from their session!

These two were such a joy to work with! Sam and Sarah followed my Style Guide super well, but I wasn’t even surprised, since Sarah works at Nordstrom. Could these two be any cuter together? And is anyone else seeing a certain resemblance to Prince Harry and Meghan???

I can’t believe we’re entering a new decade! I still remember when 1999 became 2000, and everyone was freaking out about what would happen when that 99 became 00. Another 10 years went by and it was 2009. And this decade we’re about to close brought so much change to my life. I lost my […]

These are some of my favorite engagement session photos EVER, and Justin and Katie are like my favorite people! If they lived in MN they’d get sick of me because I would want to see them ALL THE TIME! I’m already planning yearly trips to LA so I can get my fix of their awesomeness… […]
