arrow

Weddings

Who wouldn’t want to get married at Disneyland? I know I definitely would! Well, Madi and Riley picked the closest thing to Disneyland in Tucson for their wedding. Chosing to get married at Pinnacle Peak in Tucson, Arizona Madi and Riley were able to kiss on the carousel, say “I do” under a white gazeboo, and celebrate with friends and family inside elegant Savoy House. Pinnacle Peak has played an important role in their relationship. A place they came while dating and with family, it just made sense that they would get married here. Their wedding day was full of joy and love!

She is from Ecuador, he is from Tucson. Miles between them, yet these two found each other. Kyle and Kiara met while they both were in Peru. After returning home they began talking online and wanted to explore the spark that they both felt. After traveling to Ecuador to meet Kiara and her family, Kyle knew she was the one. These two have overcome so many obstacles for love and yet you would never know it. They are absolutely smitten with one another and don’t care who knows it!

Weddings

Madalyn and Steve’s wedding was nothing short of timeless elegance. Their wedding ceremony was held at the Tucson Arizona Temple, where the majesty of this building never ceases to amaze me. The blue dome and white exterior pop beautifully against the desert landscape. Family and friends welcomed the newlyweds as they exited the temple with excited cheers and hugs. With the hot summer temperatures, Madalyn and Steve chose to have their reception at the Highlands at Dove Mountain. This is one of my favorite venues in Tucson! The picturesque views of the city are absolutely breathtaking! Blush pinks, calming whites, soft greens, and touches of gold comprised the color palette Madalyn chose for her wedding. These colors coupled with luxurious draping and sparkling chandeliers adorning the ballroom, let the beauty of the venue shine!

Tucson Engagement Session / / Kelsey and Ryan

Engagements

Everyone else could see it, how perfect these two were for each other, but they weren’t so sure. Friendship was the safe place, they weren’t ready to take the leap and risk it all. But something kept pulling at them. Friends kept urging and encouraging. Finally they bravely took that first step and went out, and they have never looked back. Kelsey and Ryan were such a joy to photograph during their engagement session! I can’t wait to see what the future holds for these two!

Tucson Engagement Session / / Trasea and Luke

Engagements

Trasea and Luke chose one of my favorite locations for their engagement session-Sweetwater Wetlands Park. This park is a little oasis in the desert affording some “green” and shade during the hot Tucson summers. I had the best time with these two! They both have the most infectious laughs and smiles!

Family

I was able to photograph one of my favorite families earlier this week! As much as I love weddings, I love being a family photographer here in Tucson as well! David and Michelle are good family friends, and I have been privileged to watch this cute couple’s love story unfold. We began their family pictures in the Tucson desert on an overcast day, then made our way to the cotton fields for some epic sunset portraits.
