If you have decided to write your own vows, you may feel overwhelmed and have no idea where to begin. Well, I’ve got you! I have 4 tips that will help you significantly when putting your thoughts to paper!
Listen up!!! Your partner wants the proposal documented. Even if they desire something intimate and just the two of you… hire a photographer to hide out and take photos! Proof or it didn’t happen, am I right?! Just kidding, but seriously I have yet to meet someone who says they wouldn’t want photos of their proposal. I am here to tell you how to plan a perfect surprise proposal!
Chances are if you’re engaged and planning a wedding, you’re hearing tons of opinions and input on what you should and shouldn’t do. It’s easy to feel overwhelmed and stressed out! As a wedding photographer, I have seen a lot of things, and as someone who works in the wedding industry, I have some advice […]
Casey and Jon came from Houston and while they were in town for the weekend they wanted to take their engagement photos, so we made it happen. I love that I’ve had so many couples reach out and say they’re coming from out of state and want to book a desert engagement session while they’re visiting Arizona. I think the desert is absolutely beautiful, and such a fun and unique place to take photos!
Sometimes the day of your session the weather is “less than ideal.” But as long as it’s safe and if you’re down to embrace the weather that Mother Nature throws your way… I promise it will be worth it! Some of my favorite sessions I have ever had are when it’s overcast, windy as heck, or even snowing. So if you have a shoot scheduled and it starts to rain or it looks like it’s going to rain, here are a few ideas on how to embrace it…
Max and Alexa’s wedding day was STUNNING! I had the opportunity to second shoot for Briquelle for this beautiful couple’s big day and I am so grateful for the chance I had to work alongside her.

I adore these two, I was so stoked when they asked me to capture their elopement day! Miki, Morgan, and I sat down in the early months of 2022 in a coffee shop in San Diego to start planning their elopement. We were starting from ground zero when it came to planning, they weren’t sure exactly where they wanted to elope but knew they wanted the adventure elopement and loved the desert. Joshua Tree was on the table (which is always a favorite for me) but once we started looking at photos of Sedona elopements they were sold!
J & A flew to Arizona from Houston for their engagement shoot and I was so honored to capture this moment for them! When Alice first reached out to me she told me that she was wanting to rent a classic car for their shoot, which I’m a huge fan of. I did some location scouting, chatted with the owner of this insanely beautiful Porsche, and we formed a plan for a sunrise session.
