I'm Amber, a Harry Potter obsessed wedding and brand photographer for those who are anything but ordinary based in Phoenix, Arizona.

When I don't have a camera in my hand, you can find me hiking with my husband, snuggling pups, or planning my next Disney trip.

I have been photographing weddings for well over 5 years now, and let me tell you, I LOVE second shooters!  I may be a little partial, because that is part of the story of how I started photographing weddings.  I started assisting then second shooting for other wedding photographers before photographing my own weddings!

One stereotype of Millennials I can get on board with is how much we love our pets.  They are a part of our family.  We love spending time with them and include them in our hikes, cafe dates, and trips to our parent’s houses.  So, it totally makes sense that we want to include them in our engagement photos too!  I personally love when I get to meet my couple’s pups and include them in our session.  Here are the tips I give my couples when they want to include doggo in their engagement photos.

One of the top requested locations for an engagement session is Sedona.  And it’s not hard to see why.  It is a quick drive up from the valley to get some truly unique and epic views.  The red rocks that Sedona is famous for is only available here in the Southwest.  So, if you are an outdoorsy or adventurous couple, it only makes sense to take advantage of Sedona for your engagement photos!  There are so many great locations to choose from.

Nothing says Arizona like a desert wedding.  People travel from all over the world to get married with our iconic desert views and amazing weather.  I mean, highs in the 70’s while so much of the country is covered in snow.  It doesn’t get much better than that.  With that amazing weather and our beautiful desert comes a high, beating sun during the day and cool nights.  Here are some tips for making the most out of your desert wedding!

You know that you should be blogging your weddings and sessions.  Blogging shortly after the wedding or session helps to create a stellar client experience.  Blogging your weddings and sessions help your SEO ranking (which means more clicks, which means more inquiries, which means more bookings!).  But, during the busy wedding season when you have weddings every weekend, it can be hard to keep on top of it all. And one of the first things to fall to the wayside is blogging.  (I know, I have been there!)

Blogging is a great way to help your ranking for SEO!  Not only does frequent blogging let search engines know that your website is current, you can use it to show search engines you are an authority in your area.  Now, showing search engines you are the authority on weddings in your region takes a bit of strategy behind it.
