Hello friends! With Christmas just a few days away I wanted to share our Dec 25th proposal story with you! What started out as our favorite day, surrounded by our favorite people, turned out to be much much more! Jayse and I started Christmas day off right by hosting a party for our entire family. […]

Dilyana and Tyler are MARRIED! These two hold a special place in my heart. Have you ever met someone that you just immediately felt like they could be best friends? Or maybe more. Maybe like family? That’s the case with Dil and Ty! (And their entire family!) These two adventurers found each other five years […]

Celeste and Matt first met at a friends party where they were both were smitten with each other. But it wasn’t until a year later they would cross paths again. After secretly thinking of each other for the whole time in between, they bumped into each other one night in town, exchanged #s and the rest was history! After a […]

Kaylyn and Nick met in high school, and it wasn’t long until the lines of friendship blurred and they had fallen madly for each other. They secretly dated for a few months, but eventually it became too obvious and you could clearly see that they were craaazy for each other! Nick proposed to Kaylyn in Vegas, […]

I first met Rana + Ryan this past spring on a dusty photo-adventure in the sand dunes for their engagement shoot. We enjoyed hours of talking about travel and life, and it was there, while hiking up-and-down the rolling desert hills in search of the ‘perfect dune’ that I very quickly fell in love with these two. So, I’ve been looking forward […]

Samantha and Jason love going out for good eats or comedy shows in the heart of the big city where they live, but when it comes to their favorite thing to do together, I think Samantha said it best: “Cancelled plans are our crack!” So heck! Why not capture them doing what they do best!? […]

Classy and Modern :: Quirky and playful – these two are the perfect cocktail mix of both! This happy-go-lucky couple met in a nightclub about seven and a half years ago – so it’s only fitting that they chose to get married at a very unique and special location: The Hyde Nightclub, complete with their very own Bellagio Fountain […]

Brittany + Evan love nothing more (other than each other + their fur babies, of course!) than hopping on a airplane and going on a new adventure together! In the last five years they’ve traveled all through Europe, Caribbean, Hawaii, along with many other destinations, and plan one big trip together each year. For their engagement session, Brittany and Evan wanted something […]

This […]

And it’s also one of the […]
