Katie Turley is a beautiful, talented senior at Mountain View high school this year. My goal with high school senior portraits is to truly capture the seniors personality at this pivotal moment in their lives. And I think we nailed it with Katie’s photos. We started out at her home with her beautiful horse, and ended up at Red Mountain Ranch with her and her violin. It was a great session. Congratulations on graduation Katie!

Bryce Delizio married Sydney Layton in the Gilbert Arizona temple on Friday March 25th. Followed by a beautiful ring ceremony and reception at Oakwood Country club on Saturday, March 26, 2016. I asked Sydney about their relationship and here is here story: “We met country swing dancing at a fun little club in Mesa at the time. Bryce’s friend had brought him, and I had been going for quite awhile so I was pretty good. His friend introduced us and asked me to teach him some cool moves. And after that day he kept coming back. Took him awhile, but he finally asked me on a date via facebook. I still tease him about that haha.
I don’t remember there being a specific time where we “fell in love”, it wasn’t a sweep me off my feet romance. Slow and steady is probably how I would describe it. We went through some important life events together and just grew to love each other through it all.
After about 2 years of dating, Bryce proposed by recreating our first date. We went to the science museum (like a bunch of nerds ha), we had a blast there, then we went to dinner at a cute Mexican restaurant close by. Outside the restaurant is a beautiful patio with fountains and lots of shady trees. He proposed there and not two minutes after I said yes, a huge dust storm came rolling in. We ran to get under some cover with giant smiles on our faces and lots of sand in our teeth ”
A special thank you to all of the great vendors at Bryce and Sydney’s beautiful wedding;
Cake: Sugarlips cakery
Dress: Closet Full of Dresses
Venue: Oakwood Country Club

I had the honor of working with Spencer Cluff and Anna-Manuela (Mani) John on their beautiful January 16, 2016 wedding. The day of their formal wedding portraits it was raining cats and dogs. We live in the valley of the sun and it is rare that we have a day without the sun peeking through the clouds at some point in the day. But this day was different. It was raining the ENTIRE day. As we headed for the temple the rain was coming down in sheets so we said a little prayer that we would at least get a few shots without drowning. When we arrived at the temple is was still drizzling, but by the time we started shooting the rain let up. It was still cloudy and gray, but we didn’t feel a single rain drop. . . until our last photo for the day. Then it rained the rest of the day, evening, and the next day. Tender mercy! In strong contrast, the day of their wedding, as they exited the temple into full sunshine the sky was the bluest I have ever seen it! Congratulations Mani & Spencer!!!

On the beautifully warm winter day of January 14, 2016, Brian Doyle married the lovely Amber Winscom at the Castle at Ashley Manor. During their ceremony they combined two vials of oil and lit it to symbolize their two lives combining as one. Congratulations Amber & Brian, wishing you a lifetime of love and happiness!
Meet the DeGroff family. This was my first time working with this cute family and they are a ton of fun. We shot down by the Salt River and the beautiful Red Mountain at Granite Reef and they all wore coordinating flannels. Thanks for a great shoot DeGroff gang!
I have been so overwhelmingly busy the last couple of months that I haven’t blogged many sessions. But I am trying to get back on the blogging bandwagon. And what a great family to start out the new year with! I have known mom, Amy, since my big kids were in elementary school at Highland Elementary where she was the librarian, now she teaches 5th grade. She is an amazing woman. I have had the opportunity to work with her cute family on everything from family photos, to senior portraits, and even Courtney and Justin’s wedding. Thanks for another great shoot Karbula and Sigler family!

Today is the wedding of Kayley DeWitt & Weylen White. I had the honor of shooting their engagement pictures a couple of months ago, but didn’t want to release them until their big day. So today I would love to congratulate this beautiful couple and wish them an amazing eternity together! Good luck and happy wedding day Kayley and Weylen!
I LOVE THIS FAMILY! Steve and Hailey Schild are two of the sweetest people I know. And boy do they make beautiful children. You may recognize them because I use their cute family on a lot of my advertising. This shoot was actually a two-parter: One was the entire family for their annual portraits and the second was just with baby Brynn for her 6-month old portraits. Take a peek at all their cuteness! (* You can also view some of their other shoots here, here, here, and here. )
