Senior sessions are always fun. Something about 18-year-old young men and women, with their youthful exuberance, optimism and positive energy. And why not? They’re on the cusp of adulthood and starting their own great adventure. Bailey know exactly what she wanted out of her senior shoot. She carefully picked her wardrobe, we talked about different location possibilities, we found and created great light, she was a natural in front of the lens, and the results are beautiful.

erin & kyle – arizona wedding photography

Nearly 10 years of living in Arizona and I’d never been to Prescott. Erin & Kyle gave me a terrific reason to do so, their beautiful wedding. Prescott in three words: Harleys, Cowboys and Antiques. Erin and Kyle’s wedding in three words: Adorable, Fun, and Loving.

My own wedding anniversary was the day after their wedding, and so of course Jenny came along to assist me and then we spent the weekend at an adorable Prescott B&B. I told Jenny and the wedding party that shooting a wedding on your anniversary weekend is a great way to both remember and celebrate our time together. Seeing a new couple starting on their own lifetimes together was great, especially since Erin and Kyle were so clearly happy and in love. I wish them all the happiness they deserve.

brad – gilbert senior portrait photographer

Brad’s family moved in across the street from us when we first came to Arizona in 1999. Brad and his bother became friends with my boys, and they did all that stuff that neighborhood kids do…running around, causing minor trouble and having fun. I haven’t seen Brad for years and told his mom during the shoot that it’s only when seeing how much friends’ kids change over the years that we truly realize how time is flying by. Brad is no longer the little kid I knew, but a grown man who is heading off to college. We caught some good light (and created some too) at the Gilbert Riparian Preserve.
