Introducing Karli & Taylor Trendler

December 27, 2018, was a momentous day!  It was the day that Karli Duncan married Taylor Trendler in the Gilbert Arizona Temple.  I had the wonderful opportunity to spend the day with them and photograph their special day, and . . . It was also MY 29th anniversary!  Boy does time fly!  Twenty nine years, four kids, two states, 10 moves, and countless jobs later and still going strong!  Congratulations Karli and Taylor, wishing you 29 anniversaries and many, many more!

And just to entertain you, here is Erik and I on our wedding day 29 years ago (Photos by Steve Barrus Photography). Love you Erik Alan Hemeyer!

Introducing Lauren & Brennan Davis

Last November I was shooting a wedding and a cute girl came up to me and said she wanted me to shoot her wedding. . . but she wasn’t engaged yet.  Flash forward several months and I get a call that she is engaged to her high school sweetheart and they are getting married in July.  So, on July 14, Lauren Arrowsmith married Brennan Davis in the Gilbert, Arizona temple.  The only thing hotter than the July Arizona sun was their love and happiness at beginning their lives together.  It was so fun to work with this sweet couple and their families.  Congratulations Lauren and Brennan!

Introducing Ashley & Tyler Ashcraft

The best compliment a client can give me is to refer me to a friend or loved one.  Well, you may remember the beautiful wedding of Mallory & Nathan Judd last October (if not, you can take a peek here. )  Nathan’s sister, Ashley just got married and guess who got to shoot their wedding?  THIS GIRL!  It was so much fun to work with Ashley and her family again and it was great meeting her awesome groom, Tyler Ashcraft.  Tyler and Ashley were sealed in the Gilbert Arizona temple on Saturday, June 23, 2018.  That night they had a beautiful ring ceremony and reception at the Wright house.

Introducing Kelsie & Chris Taney

Wow!  This was such a great wedding.  The mother of the bride, Kim Rhoton, is one of the most amazing, hard-working, dedicated, caring people I know and I am lucky enough to call her one of my best friends.  The Rhoton’s moved in across the street from us almost 20 years ago and we became fast friends.  I have had the privilege of watching Kim and Jeff raise their four kids to become amazing adults (youngest son, Bryce, just graduated high school, so they are officially on their way to being empty nesters!) Bride, Kelsie, has always been such a sweet, kind girl.  I have watched her from from a third grader in pig tails, until a beautiful young woman graduating high school, and onto college, and her career as a nurse.  It was so fun to hear her love story and journey as she met and fell in love with Chris Taney.  Kelsie and Chris were sealed in the Gilbert, Arizona, temple on Saturday, May 12, 2018.  Congratulations Kelsie and Chris!

Introducing Mikayla & Connor Hanks

I love my job, but this week I really LOVED my job.  Groom, Connor Hanks served a mission for the Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-Day Saints in Mesa, Arizona, and we had the privilege of having him serve in our ward for several months.  During that time we enjoyed having him in our home many times and really grew to love this great young man.  Fast forward  about a year and he finished his mission, fell in love and got engaged to the beautiful Mikayla Rowland.  They planned to wed in the Gilbert Arizona temple, but their photographer cancelled at the last minute.  Thankfully, Connor remembered that I also photographed weddings and he called me.  We were so close to the wedding that we didn’t have time for the typical “golden Hour” formal portraits of the bride and groom, and so we headed out to Lost Dutchman state park at 6:00 o’clock in the morning.  Boy it felt early driving to the park in the dark, but as the sun came up over the  Superstition Mountains and we began to shoot, I was in love!  We got some incredible shots of this gorgeous couple .  It was very windy, but the light was amazing, the scenery was breathtaking, and the love between these two was palpable.  It was an incredible shoot (see below for the proof).  Thanks for thinking of me Mr. & Mrs. Elder Hanks!  :)
