Sabino Canyon | Tucson Wedding Photographer | Lacey and Adam Engagement Session

I am absolutely so thrilled to share this engagement session with you guys. Lacey and Adam flew all the way from Baton Rouge, Louisiana to Tucson for their session. They are so sweet and super chill, and they have the sweetest southern accent. I mean it was the sweetest!!!! I can listen to them talk all day. It was such a dream that they have chosen me to photograph this session.  

Here are a few favorites from our session. Swoon!! 

Elaina and Dave Story | Stardance Event Center | Tucson Wedding Photographer

It is such an honor to be invited to witness one of the most important days in 2 people's lives. And to be able to tell their love story from start to finish, not just for their close friends and family but for their children and grandchildren. I'm still on cloud nine. Thank you for having me!

Our day started at 10.00 a.m. I met with the groom's party for a relaxing hot shave at the HiEndTight Barbershop.  The guys look amazing - they were glowing.  This should become a thing for all the groom-to-be. What an amazing way to pamper your crew. 

Next up we were off to Stardance Event Center. This venue is one of my absolute favorites with it's desert surroundings and rustic vibe.  I had scouted an amazing spot for couple portraits and it did not disappoint. The light was so beautiful and gave off such a romantic feel. 

Elaina and Dave have one of the nicest wedding party. Their family are so warm and welcoming. The entire day was filled with so much love.  I still cannot believe that they have chosen me to be their wedding photographer - this beautiful couple.  For that I am forever grateful.  

A special thank you to my co-photographer, mentor, and friend: Timothy Eyrich. Thank you for all you do.

Sabino Canyon | Tucson Wedding Photographer | Chris and Jancy Engagement Session

Friends, I am so stoked to share this engagement session with you.  The beautiful sunset sky adds just the perfect amount of mood to this session. It feels so romantic, doesn't it? My couple, Chris and Jancy, flew all the way from Shanghai, China, to shoot their engagement session with me here in the desert of Tucson. Chris is a UofA alumni and loves the desert. The desert loves him back by way of jumping cactus clinging on to his wool sweater ;).  

Jancy looks so gorgeous amongst the majestic landscape in the backless ivory dress. They are so easygoing, super sweet, and fun to work with. I am so in love with their love [insert Kenny G. Forever In Love...].

Gates Pass | Tucson Wedding Photographer

This was such a beautiful surprise proposal. A huge congratulations to Heidi and Miguel. I'm so happy to be a part of your special day! 

Miguel planed everything from the location to details of the ring. But let's talk about the ring for a second. It is custom made by his aunt, Lisa McConnell, https://www.lisamcconnell.com/. The center stone is a beautiful sapphire with 2 diamond side stones. So perfect. 

We drove to Gates Pass to scout out the area the day before. We (well... mostly Miguel) checked out every nook of Gates Pass, decided on the time, and narrowed it down to this beautiful spot at sunrise.  He got down on one knee. It was so sweet. They are both really sweet, actually.  

A special shoutout to my 2nd shooter, Andi O'bert, for getting up way before sunrise and capturing this sweet proposal from the opposite side of me.
