These two are the quinessential classic couple. Elegant, polite and ever so beautiful. It was so fun getting to photograph them for their engagement shoot, along with their pup! For this shoot, we meet in downtown Tucson- and then wandered into the desert near the Tucson mountains for some more casual shots.
The Palo Verdes were STUNNING this year…so many yellow blooms.
Love this green, yellow and navy look we were able to capture.
This little guy was so well behaved! And adorable to boot!
My favorite shot of the shoot…
Love this one- these two are so loving…
Thank you both so much! I had a blast, congrats! XO
When I first met these two I could immediately see how easy going and sweet they were. Karina, the bride had every detail of this wedding planned down to the napkins. Being a huge DIY kind of gal, she made almost everything for the wedding. Her classic, but whimsical style really showed up in every element….
This dress! It fit her like a glove.
Karina, you are just stunning!
This bridal party was so fun!
One of my favorite shots from the wedding…
After family and bridal party photos, we headed downtown for our bride and groom shoot…
Love this little candid below.
This bride is just stunning- photographs so well too!
Love this sign….
My favorite doors in all of Tucson!
Thanks for letting me share your day Karina & Stephen! Congratulations!
These two! One of the most loving, kind and genuine couples I have ever had the pleasure of photographing (or knowing!). For their ‘fall’ engagement session we headed to the barrio in downtown Tucson, for some biker fun (these two are amazing outdoors-peeps), followed by a fun hike in the washes of Sabino Canyon.
Love Lauren’s bike!
This is portably one of my favorite shots of all time below…
This is a session favorite…you have to believe me when I say this was a TOUGH shot to get. These two never stop smiling- and were cracking up the entire time I was trying to get a dead-pan face. Too cute.
I love the Barrio- it feels like Tucson to me!
Next we took the tram to the top of Sabino Canyon and then walked down.
They really are this natural and snuggly all the time-its a photographers dream!
Love this next set in the wash…
Forget it! LOVE.
It’s hard to really experience FALL in Tucson, but I think we totally achieved it in Sabino Canyon. So many beautiful colors!
I need these boots. SWOON.
Thank you Lauren and Ryan for letting me a part of your engagement AND wedding! Wishing you both a lifetime of happiness! XO
Here are a few sweet families from last years mini sessions! Seriously my favorite season ever!
Thank you clients for such a fun season! XO
What started out as a busy Fall in 2013, then turned into an INSANE Winter and even more nuts Spring here in the studio. Luckily for me, business has grown at a really fast rate over the past year, and I am both grateful and excited. With this increase in business, I quickly (or not so quickly) realized I needed help both in the studio and in the field! Enter: Lulu! Lindsay (or Lulu if you know her), my first team member, started with me a few weeks ago- and makes everything so much BETTER! The best thing about her, is she can do anything. You will find her writing blog posts, editing galleries, keeping me organized and on task, taking my Graham Graham on fun play dates, and second shooting with me on occasion. She’s fun, and has a great eye, and I can’t imagine working with anyone else! (Plus: hello, she’s adorable). Welcome to EMP Lulu, and thank for agreeing to hang out with Graham and I all week!
