Meg & Mike


Meg and Mike were married at the JW Marriot Starr Pass Resort. It was a gorgeous day and I was elated to be out shooting with my two friends, Jenn & Jen. I was rolling with the Jennifer posse!
Meg hired me online and I met her the first time just weeks before her wedding. She was a lot of fun and warned me that she often photographs like a "drunk pirate." Staring at her gorgeous face, I had a hard time imagining this and assured her that we would get some killer images for her. And well, we triumphed!

Cristina & Henry

When I met Cristina and Henry, their enthusiasm for photography really made me happy. They were the first couple to pull up my blog, during the meeting, and start ooohing and aaahing. Way to make your photographer feel good and want to kick ass!!!
I was a little nervous on the drive to the wedding. Cristina and Henry were married at Val Vista Lakes in Gilbert and it was pouring on the way there. When there is rain, I worry about how my bride is handling it. But when we arrived Cristina was smiling and full of light. And don'tcha know, the rain stopped completely right before the ceremony!! Positive thinking! Here comes the sun!
