I heart downtown

This session took place downtown, right in the middle of "Tucson Meet Yourself." It made parking a little tricky, but we had all the entertainment and people watching we could want. This family was so fun/easy to photograph. Their little guy has an infectious smile, and a very effective way of scooting around on his little toosh. So cute. It was a beautiful evening...perfect temperature, absolutely splendid lighting. There's not much more that we could have asked for.

last weekend

Such a cute family, it was a pleasure to photograph them. It sprinkled a little...just enough to give us some great cloud cover, and some fun umbrella shots.

So cute!

This is my second time photographing this little man, and I loved it. He is so adorable, and has some of the cutest expressions. 2 year olds can be challenging to photograph especially, outdoors (they just don't like to sit still), but but he did fantastic.

Joel and Kristina

I first met Joel and Kristina last Christmas eve on the U of A campus when I was invited to photograph Joel's proposal (as Wilbur the Wildcat) to Kristina. A little background info...Kristina used to be Wilma the Wildcat. So while they were in town visiting Kristina's family they all took a trip to campus. Joel had put together a fantastic plan to break away from the group and meet some U of A cheerleaders who supplied the mascot uniform. He returned with the cheerleaders as Wilbur...waving at everyone and being very mascot-ish. Then surprised Kristina when he got down on one knee to propose. My job was to hang out in the background, try not to be noticed too much, while capturing the event. It was surprisingly hard to blend in. There weren't very many people on campus, I had both my cameras, and I was trying position myself to capture everything.

The family

Fast forward several months...
Joel and Kristina were married last month at Saguaro Buttes Community Church. It was an absolutely beautiful ceremony and reception, and it was so great to work with them again.

Joel and Kristina met in a choir...I love the little musical elements designed into their invites, and programs.

Love these shoes!

Isn't Kristina stunning!?

I love the desert theme and warm colors.

They had their schedule worked out to see each other before the ceremony.

Such a great looking couple!

The most stunning sunset just as the ceremony was ending.
