I believe in the power of love, connection, and belonging. As a Tucson Arizona Photographer, I adore each of my couples and work to deliver not only breathtaking photos, but an incredible wedding experience as well.
Let's answer the burning quesiton you are wondering- "How do I pronounce your last name?!". So many letters! It is much easier to say than to spell- it sounds like "Richey" with an "F" in front, "F-Richey". Now you'll never forget it! :)
Now that we have that out of the way, I want to thank you for being here and I want to share a little bit of my why and the heart behing my camera.
For me, motherhood is where I learned the value of photography. Growing up we never did family pictures, and I was never the girl with a camera. It wasn't "my thing". But the moment I held my first child, I knew I never wanted to forget a moment. My son's soft cheek pressed against mine, his tiny hand wrapped gently around my finger, every milk drunk smile was perfection, and I never wanted to forget. As much as I have wanted to, I cannot pause time. The sweet babies I once held in my arms now run around my feet and I realize now what a gift photography is. When the moment is gone, it is what remains.
These moments- Your engagement, your wedding day, the birth of your children are the milestones that tell the story of your life, and you deserve to have it expertly captured. I promise that when you choose me as your photographer, I choose you right back! I am there to capture all the big and small in-between moments. I am the calm in the chaos and I am there to care for you and those you love.
Warm, playful, lover of light, travel, and the desire to capture connection with my camera.
Engagement Pictures are awesome! You get to explore beautiful outdoor locations and have me capture gorgeous photos of the two of you!
There is something so magical and special about maternity sessions. They are one of my favorite sessions to photograph.
What an incredible memory to have photos of the two of you the moment you get engaged.
I love the intimacy of elopements. Leaving the traditions behind and focusing on what feels perfect for the two of you is incredible!
