Brooke & Alec – 11/1/14

I really loved their first look! The reactions were very touching and it was great to see them take it all in. Great shot above left and below by my fabulous second shooter Brian M.

Brian was able to capture the reception details beautifully, above and below, while we were finishing up photos at the church.

The calm before the storm

This week my two boys had fall break from school so we headed over to Vertuccio Farms near our house for their fall festival. I’ve been editing like a crazy lady for the last couple of weeks and getting ready for the fall wedding season that is almost upon us! I haven’t shared much on the home front for awhile; mainly we’ve been busy with everyone’s day to day schedules. This week I really tried to slow things down a bit, so the boys could get a breather and finally spend some time outside somewhere other than in a swimming pool! For those of you that live in Phoenix, you know that we are now coming out of hibernation. Congrats, we survived another summer! Nolan showing me how big his pumpkin will be.

Melissa & Jonathan’s Engagement Session

I recently got to meet up with Melissa & Jonathan for their engagement session. We decided to wait out the summer for cooler temps and I’m so glad we did! They live very close to old town Scottsdale, and use their bikes regularly when they go out to restaurants in the area. We did the session very close to their home, so they were able to ride their bikes that we had fun incorporating into the shoot. I enjoyed getting to know them better and am looking forward to capturing their wedding this November and working with their wedding planner Nicole Arend.
After the our time at the Civic Center we made a stop at Papago Park for sunset.
