Koko Crater Botanical Garden Bridal Shoot

Koko Crater Styled Shoot (12 of 345)

After moving to lush, green Hawaii after living in the desert I craved seeing cactus (crazy when you live in Hawaii, right?). On Oahu, at the base of an enormous volcanic crater lies a dry almost desert where cactus grows rampant. When I first saw this beautiful cactus garden, I knew I had to create a shoot here that blended my Arizona roots with Oahu’s gorgeous, natural setting. I knew that Hawaii’s very well know Passion Roots floral team would be the ones to understand this vision, and they jumped on board. The created a super unique bouquet of lush succulents, cactus, and of course some local floral from the islands. The bouquet and table centerpiece was an exact representation of the shoot, flowy, unique, green and oh so Hawaii- with a touch of cactus.

The bride wore a gorgeous flowing dress that caught the wind perfectly, from Love and Lace Hawaii, a local bridal boutique. Hair and makeup by Blush Beauty Styling, was simple, and natural. The shoot, all located on Koko Crater which has a unique rock formation of layered ash, creates amazing designs in the natural rock, which is then set agains none other- than the Pacific ocean. Our invitations, from Minted blended that gorgeous blue ocean, with the natural rock layers perfectly.

This shoot was such a blast to shoot both creatively, and aesthetically. With gorgeous backdrops at every turn, and so much cactus to draw inspiration from and talented- all female vendor crew, it was easily one of my favorites to date.

Arizona Desert Wedding at Poppy Kitchen

Emily & Brian- Getting Ready (187 of 382)

I can not say enough kind things about this sweet couple. Every time I think about their wedding at Poppy Kitchen (La Paloma) I get a little teary. Maybe it was because I was 5 months pregnant, or because it was my last official Arizona wedding, as a Tucson resident. Or maybe it was just because these two are some of the most amazingly kind, generous, and loving people I have ever photographed. They made my job look easy. Effortless in love, calm, relaxed and of so much fun- my last Arizona wedding before we moved last year was one I won’t forget. When it came time for the speeches, tons of guests stood up to talk about the couple- recanting stories of love, generosity and good times with these two. Their wedding was the first I have been to that literally felt like they just invited a bunch of family and friends to dinner. It was that relaxed, that fun, and OH SO DELICIOUS. When I asked them what was the part they were most excited about at our pre wedding consultation- I remember the bride just saying: “…the food and the people.” And you could tell.  I have to say, the details were just as delicious. With the most amazing bouquet I have seen from Atelier de La Fleur and a dress from Anthropology’s  BHLDN line, and the bridal portraits in the Saguaro grove- this wedding was just as fun to shoot as it is to look at. Enjoy friends!

Tommy & Mary: Engagement Session

EMcDonnell Photography (3 of 101)Tommy and Mary are one of those couples you can just hang out with. After their session I found myself driving home feeling bummed the session was over. This weekend will be this couples wedding in Tabac, AZ and I can not wait! Not just because the bride is a designer, and has amazing style, and because they have hired a real live donkey to pose for photos after the ceremony- but because they are both so fun and sweet and easy going. I can not way to work with them again!

For this session, we started in the Barrio- taking photos at old historic buildings. Next we traveled up into the mountains and took photos in a field I had found a few weeks prior. Just as the sun was setting the clouds parted and we got some great sun-filled shots. The field has also just sprouted some tall grasses and white flowers which really added to the session. Tommy and Mary- thank you both for being so wonderful, and sweet (and willing to drive all over) see you soon!  Cheers.

Downtown Chicago Engagement Session

Desktop73 copy

 

 

Trust me when I tell you, this was the COLDEST engagement session I have ever done. It was also one of the funnest, and just in time for Valentine’s Day! Chicago in February however,  is ice cold.  This amazing couple, who will be getting married in Tucson this fall, were serious troopers. It was 18 degrees, and getting colder by the second when we started the shoot. For their winter session, the birde, Katie, decided to have a hot-chocolate themed shoot, in addition to getting a few quintessential downtown  Chicago shots. This is one of my very favorite session, because it was just so personal. Everything about the session felt like a nod to the two of them. First off, they both work in finance, in downtown Chicago, so the start of this session really summed that up. Next, the couple did a quick change, and poured some hot chocolate into the mugs they use daily at home,  using the birdes Dad’s vintage Thermos. The couple brought a very southwest Pendleton blanket to keep them warm however, which was graphically perfection. Enjoy more below…

Engagement Session: Mt. Lemmon

Jake & Shayne- Engaged (108 of 451)

These two! What did I love about them? What didn’t I love about them…would be the better question. I think I want to be them. What started off as a slam dunk easy session with two very easy going people….somehow turned into quite an action packed a venture come 6 o’clock. More on that later…

Currently hailing from the South (for the bride-to-be’s medical residency), the couple knew they wanted to do an engagement session that involved the brides hometown of Tucson, Arizona. While visiting Arizona over a short break we took Catalina highway up to Mt. Lemmon and took a series of desert shots (incorporating the birds favorite- Saguaros), then a series of shots in the grasslands that appear half way up the mountain. We then finished up with the final series overlooking the Tucson valley at Windy Point.

After a fun an easy engagement session, chatting, laughing and taking in all the beauty of the drive we got to the car to find…A FALT. AT 6pm. ON TOP OF A MOUNTAIN. WITH NO CELL SERVICE. IN THE DARK. So…there was that.  The groom to be, claiming that he had no idea what he was doing, quickly assured us that we were fine, and we would figure this out. Together. The bride to be was calm, easy going and never once seemed worried as the two of them broke out the cars manual, found the spare, and tools, and got to work, jacking the car up and pooling together their limited resources. Never proud, never frustrated, never bossy.   Even after several hours with this couple, I learned more about them and their relationship in that first 5 minuets of tire changing than I had the whole day. Ultimately, a kind stranger showed up, and helped fixour tire in 2 minuets flat. The groom to be took it as a “learning” opportunity and ate up everything the stranger from Denmark had to say. The couple chatted with everyone lightly and cracked jokes, reveling their kind nature and at ease spirits, thanking the strangers profusely.  On the way down the mountain, the couple lamented that they wished they could pay the strangers kindness  forward…and were so touched by his help. I reminded Shayne that she was in fact in medical school, trying to become a pediatrician, so that she could help children…but this fell on deaf ears- she still wanted more for others.  I was incredibly struck by this couples love for one another, their ease around one another.  It was as if they had always been together, like they were young, but their relationship incredibly old and easy. I love sessions like this, where I can see exactly why two people are together. But what I love even more, is seeing why they will always be together.

Congrats you two! Hope you enjoy these photos as much as I did taking them. Hugs. Jake & Shayne- Engaged (21 of 451)

Erica & Brett: Barrio & Desert Engagement

Erica & Brett- Engagement 2014 (2 of 568) copy

I have to say this is one of the funnest shoots I’ve done. These two were full of ideas, laughs and stories. I felt like I was just amongst friends the whole time. Relaxed, sweet and  charismatic describe these two best. This shoot started off in the old Barrio, and then moves into the desert for our final hour of shooting.

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.
