Chelsea and Ronan got married in the ever breathtaking superstition mountains at Lost Dutchman State Park.  Their wedding was a celebration of their cultures (Navajo and Irish) and incorporated their love of Star Wars!

Dan and Julie planned an intimate wedding with just their closest family members.  Knowing the importance of their wedding, they knew they wanted to have the day documented.  They decided to have a bridal session at the Hassayumpa Inn in Paradise Valley followed by a reception dinner with their family.

When you first start looking at wedding photographers, it can be overwhelming.  Especially in a place like Phoenix where there are so many to choose from!  You may start your search with looking through pages and pages of photographers on Wedding Wire, The Knot, or Google.  Or maybe you ask for suggestions for wedding photographers on Facebook.  Be prepared to still receive a ton of suggestions there too.  As you are looking through all the profiles and websites, know there is light at the end of the tunnel!  Your wedding photographer is out there!  And I am here to help you narrow down your choices until you find the one.  Here are the top things to consider when looking for a photographer for your wedding.

For Cassandra and Matt’s engagement session, we went to one of my favorite spots: Roosevelt Row.  They were looking for a little mix of everything that the art-district has to offer.  We started the session a little more casual, walking around to find the art murals that caught our eye. After we made a small circle, it was time for an outfit change.  Cassandra had the cutest flower dress for her second outfit!  That inspired me and we went straight for my favorite green wall just off Roosevelt.  I always make a point to photograph in new areas of my tried and true locations.  So, after my fav green wall, we headed down the street to an art mural I always see, but have not photographed yet.  And of course they are some of my favorite images from the session!  (Of course, I may be a little partial to the pretty blues that was behind them!)

Not many people know this, but my husband and I basically grew up going to concerts together.  When I met him in high school, he was a guitarist in a local band, which was actively playing shows.  Add to those to all of the other concerts we were attending and it seemed like we were always watching a band somewhere.  There was one week I remember we went to three concerts!  In honor of the countless nights we spent at concerts, I bring you: Concert Date Night.

One of the most important things you can do to have your wedding day run smoothly is to have a solid Wedding Day Timeline.  (The others are hiring an amazing wedding planner and photographer!)  I am not talking about your photography timeline here, I am talking about the entire day.  From the moment you wake up to the end of the reception.

I met Lauren and Matt at a wedding I photographed last December.  She was the bride’s sister and they were both in the wedding party.  Lauren’s maid of honor speech left the room with tears in everyone’s eyes (including my own).  So, I was so excited when she contacted me about photographing her wedding this year!

Corie & Joe met in high school through a mutual friend and have been together for 16 years!  They just got engaged last year and are ready to celebrate their marriage with their three kids.  They love going to concerts and taking family vacations together.  When we first met, they were getting ready for a family trip to Disneyland!  (These two are defiantly after my own heart!)

For Corie & Joe’s engagement session, they took me to Gilbert’s Heritage District.  Being from the West side of town, I do not head out to Gilbert often and have never been to the Heritage District.  I was pretty excited to check out the new area and see what amazing photo opportunities awaited.  Corie & Joe love going to the Heritage District for the amazing restaurants that are there.  As we explored the are they shared with me their favorite spots to eat.  And they are not the only ones that go there for the food.  By the end of our morning session, the sidewalks were crowded with people waiting for tables at the various restaurants.  I am so glad we got there early!

I always love when my couples choose a location for their engagement session that is special to them.  But sometimes, they need help with inspiration or just want to take pictures somewhere with killer views!  Either way, I have their back and yours.  Today I am sharing with you my top 5 outdoor engagement session locations in Arizona including Sedona, Flagstaff, Superstition Mountains, and in the Valley.

I had the opportunity to meet Catherine at the Arizona Bridal show in January.  I was so excited when she emailed me about doing engagement photos for her and Bryce!  These two are insanely cute together.  And bonus, not afraid of hiking into random washes with me!
