My excitement and love for photography grows with every person I meet...every photo I take.


It brings me joy to capture your emotions, your laughter, and your moment with every frame.


Its your story. You are unique.


Let me be your visual record keeper.









Kristen & David in Casa Grande, AZ - Arizona | California | and anywhere else my camera takes me!

28 April 2011
Here's how it happened.
I am sitting at my desk and I notice that there is a message on my cell phone. Now, I don't always pick up my messages right away, so who knows how long that has been sitting in my "in box." I listen. Its from Chef Michael and his daughter is getting married on Sunday. Who is Chef Michael you wonder? Well, he is the owner of a restaurant in Casa Grande called Big House Cafe. Apparently, its quite an iconic establishment in Casa Grande. Their photographer bailed out on them and my friend Rosemary from Desert Rose Images has referred him to me. His question? Am I available on Easter Sunday to photograph a wedding?

Well! YES! Yes I am! I love weddings.

And that is how I happen to be photographing a wedding on Easter Sunday.

Meet Kristen.  The Bride....isn't she beautiful? On the happiest day of her life, still planning details of the day and getting ready.  All smiles! She knows she is marrying her best friend!

I found this red chair in the cafe and just fell in love with it.  You will find it showing up in various pictures all afternoon!

I met David literally minutes before we took some of these pre wedding shots.  He is a great man.  Very easy going and kind of like "yea, okay, let's do it."  Again, he knew that he was marrying his best friend so everything else was just easy.

Standing with David were his older brother, younger brother and best friend.  These guys were really a lot of fun too.

A great example of "you don't exactly know what you have until you get it out of the camera and take a look." Oh, and THIS is Chef Michael (Father of the Bride). Oh and yes, I do love the 70-200 f2.8...I think I will keep it.
