Mimi + Nymu Engaged | Phoenix, AZ

This past weekend I met Mimi and Nymu for the first time. We had been in touch over email and phone calls for months, but the time had finally arrived for their Engagement Session! This is our first Engagement Session of 2013 and I could not have been more excited to document the love between Mimi and Nymu. I was so ready to get back to "work" and do what I love to do!

Mimi and Nymu were such a blast to meet and photograph. What is not seen in these pictures is how COLD it was in Arizona!! Being born and raised in Southern California, anything below 70 degrees is freezing in my book. But 40 degrees is beyond freezing! And those are the conditions we found ourselves in during their Session. Mimi and Nymu were such wonderful sports through it all and Nymu would sneak in many warm hugs to make sure that Mimi would survive the freezing temperatures:) He did a great job making sure his bride-to-be was well taken care of!

Mimi and Nymu: It was a joy seeing your love in person. Thank you for entrusting us with such a special time in your lives. We look forward to reuniting again in Arizona to document the BIGGEST day of your lives in just a few short months! 

God bless,


"How precious are Your thoughts to me...
How vast is the sum of them! If I should count
them, they would outnumber the sand."

Monica + Adrian Married | Southern California

Monica and Adrian's Southern California Wedding was our last Wedding of 2012, and we couldn't have been more blessed to have been a part of it! These two are LOVED. Children adore them, adults admire them, and we also could not help ourselves from falling in love with their love for each other. Their Wedding Day was filled with joy, tears, and so much laughter and love! They both love to smile and we were so fortunate to be able to freeze every moment with our cameras. We are truly thankful for Monica and Adrian and beyond grateful to have been given the blessed opportunity to capture their Big Day! Below are a few of our favorite moments captured!

Enjoy!

the Standing Out workshop is coming!

It has been a goal of ours to host our very own workshop for well over a year now. We kept putting the idea aside because our schedule never seemed to find the right time to sit and plan such an event. I mean, we want this thing to be AMAZING! And well, the time has finally come! No more excuses, we are doing it and we couldn't be more excited about it!! We are so thrilled to announce that this Summer we will host a 2-day Photography workshop titled CLOSER TO LOVE: the STANDING OUT workshop. It's going to be so much fun, full of great topics and opportunities to be hands-on by photographing a styled Engagement Session and a styled Wedding! Oh, we cannot wait to share all the details!!! Keep checking back, more details will be announced shortly!
