I love this moment between Kate’s brother and mom at the top of the aisle.

Richie surprised everyone by having Kate take off his jacket before they walked back down the aisle so his Superman cape could come out!

This is what happens when you put cake in someone’s face without looking where you’re aiming…

Wright House Mesa Wedding: Richie & Kate Pt 1

Richie and Kate came back from their new home Portland, Oregon to have a Wright House Mesa wedding and to celebrate with family and friends. Gosh I can’t tell you how excited I was to photograph this one. Richie has been my friend for ten years and ever since I first met Kate years ago, I knew this day was coming and couldn’t wait to be there! Their wedding was truly the most unique and personalized wedding I’ve been to. It was so emotional and love-filled and beautiful and just perfect. I told my team before we got there that there were three main things that came to mind when I think of them. 1. Nike 2. Oreos and 3. Superheros. They managed to fit all of these and more into their special day! I had so many favorites from their wedding that I’ll have to split it into two blog posts. Here’s part one below! And click here for part two.

Richie works at the Nike World Headquarters and gave a customized pair of shoes to everyone in the wedding party!

Of course he had to have Michael Jordan cufflinks.

Their First Look was so emotional and special…one of my favorite ones I’ve ever done and probably my favorite part of their whole day. I’m a huge supporter of having a First Look before the ceremony! Such an intimate and beautiful moment for the couple to have in a private place tucked away from everyone.

Scottsdale Engagement Photographs: Brittany & Shilo

Brittany and Shilo met several years ago when Brittany took a trip to visit her friend at college and happened upon a cute guy while she was there. One thing led to another and eventually Shilo moved down to Arizona to be with her and now they’re planning forever! We had a great time together at their engagement session laughing, joking, doing cheer stunts ;) and talking. I’m really looking forward to their Secret Garden wedding in January! Here are a few of my favorites from the session…
