Holleen & Tyler's Wedding

This was my first time shooting at Regale and I was thrilled to find so many very different and amazing spots to shoot! Here are some of my favorites from Holleen and Tyler's big day!

Holleen was glowing from the time she started getting ready to the end of the night!

We found this adorable little shop and got permission to shoot inside the front room with this amazing chandelier!

This is one of my favorite photos of the year! What a gorgeous couple!

I love this staircase!

Kim & Jeremiah's Wedding

Kim and Jeremiah are a very sweet couple and added a ton of spunk to their wedding photos by hauling in some super cool toys to pose with! Check out some of my top picks from their awesome Boojum Tree wedding!

Kim made a stunning bride!

Her groom loved this hot shot of her!

This is by far the best back bend kiss I've ever seen!

I love the romantic evening feel of this photo even though it was still fairly light out!

Another beautiful wedding at Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens and here's to another long and happy marriage! Congratulations to Kim and Jeremiah! To view more photos from this wedding and many others, please click here to see my full portfolio!

Zackary Curtis

I've determined over the past couple of weeks that my favorite type of shoot might be newborns. And how could they not be when I get to take pictures of adorable little bundles of joy like Zackary Curtis?! I don't have any of my own yet, but luckily my friends are all adding to their families so I'm surrounded by super cuteness at all times! Here are just a few of my favorites from Zackary's first photoshoot!

This picture makes me laugh every time! I love it!

Such sweet moments with mommy and daddy!

The happy new family.

Cute as a button!

Steve & Chelsea's Wedding

Chelsea and I have known each other since the day I was born. Her little brother and I were pretty much inseparable as kids. Since then, so much has changed. We've grown up, their family moved to California, and now she lives in Texas with Steve.

A few weeks ago, I was given an amazing opportunity to shoot Chelsea and Steve's Newport Beach, California...(and it gets even better)... on a YACHT! The wedding was absolutely beautiful and I still can't get over how sweet the venue was! After experiencing my first earthquake during breakfast the morning of the wedding, the rest of the day went much smoother. Here are some of my favorite shots from the day.

Chelsea always has a smile on her face and can make a room full of people laugh along with her. I love how calm she looks in this photo while all the girls are helping her lace up her dress.

Steve's single portraits went quicker than any groom I've ever shot! He's a natural in front of the camera.

When I saw this fountain surrounded by the hotel balconies, I knew I had to get bird's eye view shot!

Officially man and wife!

Thank you both for allowing me the chance to be a part of your day! I had a great time! To see more photos from Steve and Chelsea's wedding and other professional work by Snaptology Photography, please click here!

It's Holiday Portrait Time!

I had the pleasure of doing another candid-style family portrait session last weekend at Encanto Park in Phoenix, Arizona. While the park was super busy (weddings, birthday parties, family gatherings, etc), it didn't seem to interfere with this super cute family. Here are a few of my favorites from the shoot!

Elie is 4 and Shawn and Zoey are 2 and twins.

A sweet family moment while the kids watch the ducks swim by.

Shawn is a super ham for the camera and liked being chased down these railroad tracks.

Cuteness x3!

I love Sassi weddings!

Nicole and Cory were married 2 weeks ago at Sassi in Scottsdale, Arizona and I have to say with all of the desert scenery, the beautiful architecture, and those awesome doors, I absolutely love this place! Check out some of my favorite pictures from the day!

Did I mention that I love these doors?!

The ceremony site here is so beautiful and feels so intimate!

A cute moment during the first dance.

I'm a sucker for a black, red, and white cake!

Cory showing off his wicked YMCA skills.

I love how you can tell how much fun these two were having together while cutting their cake! Such a cute couple!

Ashley & David's Wedding

Ashley and David had a very traditional church wedding at Phoenix First Assembly of God and then spun tradition on its head to kick off their marriage at Bobby's, a Mancuso Restaurant! I love going to go to new venues and was even more excited about this one because I think kinda hard to find such a cool, modern restaurant that will literally shut it's doors on to the public on a Saturday night (and cater hand and foot to the photographers to boot - icing on the cake, pun totally intended!). Check out some of my favorites shots from the day!

Ashley and David decided to do a first look to get some of their pictures out of the way before their ceremony. They were so excited to see each other!

Did I mention that this couple is gorgeous?!

Oftentimes it's hard to juggle the emotions of lots of kids during a wedding day - I love all the expressions we caught during the day! This little guy was adorable!

We told the kids to cover their eyes during the kiss - check out the cutie front and center!

And now back to the reason for the entire day, the bride and groom! I love the angle I was able to get on this since they were on the landing of some stairs!

The hanging metal beads and all the photos on the back wall of different "Bobby's" in music added a lot of fun to photos all night!

And, of course, we've gotta have some *HOT* night shots alone with the bride and groom!

Thanks guys for letting me be a part of your day! To see more photos from Ashley and David's special day and other professional work by Snaptology Photography, please click here!
