Last month on June 28th, I had the pleasure of photographing an intimate wedding in Phoenix, AZ at Pomelo PHX. I've been an Arizona based photographer for only three months now, so I was so excited to photograph Victoria & Sam's special day. These two actually found me through REDDIT (which just goes to show you should market yourself everywhere). It was a quick, cute ceremony with just their immediate family. Victoria & Sam have been together for 10 years & decided they wanted to officially tie the knot. I'm so happy they were the first wedding I photographed in Arizona & I love how their photos turned out. Check out my favorites below:
Back in March shortly before I left Indiana, I got to do one of the coolest collab sessions I have ever done. I had wanted to do some more creative studio work before I moved & Bryndon Barrett reached out to me when I posted a model call on Instagram. We had a few different ideas in mind & then eventually added his two brothers, @breydonbarrett & @tarbyy to the mix.
We wanted colors & posing to really drive most of the photos. Bryndon had the idea of primary colors for a bold statement, and since the three of them almost look like triplets (which they're not), in the photos you can focus on them as a whole, not just individually. After a snow storm delaying our session & multiple outfit decisions to be made, we finally got to make some photo magic & here are my final edits.
There wasn't a complete set plan for all the photos, but we wanted a connected feeling for most of the shots. Here are my top picks:
This is the first installment of this session with the Barrett Brothers, I'll be sharing the other set of photos in a couple weeks! I'm hoping to get into more creative, styled work this year & this session was the perfect stepping stone for creativity & different ideas.
I had the pleasure of meeting up with Emily Kidd last week in Phoenix. Emily is a Seattle based photographer, but was visiting her boyfriend in Phoenix. I am currently a Tempe/Phoenix, Arizona based photographer (making my way around the state) and was so excited to meet up with another photographer! We met through the creatives group Build & Bloom on Facebook.
We started our adventure at Dark Hall Coffee and talked about all things photography, goals, and The Office. Then we made our way into the 108 degree weather for some portraits around the building.
Once we were ready for a break from the heat, we hopped in the car and headed towards Encanto Park in Phoenix (with a few detours beforehand). The park had the perfect amount of sunshine and shade.
*Shameless Plug* This would also be the PERFECT location for seniors, lifestyle portraits, couples, or a family session if you're in the Phoenix area and want to set up a session!
Even if I was sweating profusely afterwards, it was so much fun getting to shoot in the Arizona sun with another photographer that totally understands the struggles and amazing side of being a photographer.
I'd love to meet up with other ~creatives~ in the Phoenix, AZ area, send me a message if you're in the area and want to collab!
Here's to the next photo friend adventure.
