Oh happy day! Sammie & Cooper flew from Colorado to see me in Arizona (and play some golf, let’s be honest!) to do their engagement photos!! 🌵☀️🌸 Their gorgeous shoot is on the blog today! #linkinbio #RTPengagements
Wednesday night ramblings.... • My life is full of contradictions. I’m an extroverted introvert. A full time stay at home mom and a full time photographer. I’m an old soul, yet the youngest of my family. And life.... it’s busy, yet it’s slow. • It’s the rush of working between nap times, and baby sitters. The quiet of the evening breeze as it tickles my temples as I watch pink sunsets. It’s the hustle and bustle of errands and cooking and diapers and nursing and crying and then snuggles. • It’s my hand in his, stepping into the unknown. It’s her tiny, trusting hand in mine following as we step into the unknown that is life. • I’m content. Thank you, Jesus, for each and every day here on earth. For the thrill of the chase and the unknown. And the safety net you provide no matter how our days and dreams unfold.
I don’t know about tomorrow, but right now the whole world feels right. ✨ Happy weekend, friends. ✨
These people fill my cup. 💗 Thanks for sharing your lives Sammie & Cooper! August can’t come fast enough. 💞👰🏼🤵🏼👸🏼👏🏻
Suuuuuper ugly scenery here. You do not want to shoot here. 😉 #arizona #arizonaweddingphotographer
Ya’ll know I started René Tate Photography 12 years ago in Colorado. Since moving from CO in 2015 to California, and now Arizona, I have just adopted traveling home to Colorado for business as my norm. WHICH I LOVE! For the first few years, I was traveling home every month AND staying for a couple of months straight in the summer. But you guys… guess what? • **This week, two of my favorite couples are traveling to Arizona from Colorado to do desert photos with me!! It’s like both my worlds are colliding and I could not be more excited!!** • There is something just SO special about the Sonoran desert that I have grown to completely adore. So much so, I opted for the fancy “Save the Environment” cactus AZ license plates. But I digress. • My point is, your dream for your life or business won’t look like everyone else’s. Let’s be honest, I thought starting a business in CO meant it needed to stay in CO. I thought moving away from Colorado to support my husband’s dreams would completely dissolve my business. But it’s thrived thanks to my incredible couples who TRUST me enough to hire me to come to Colorado (and BEYOND!) for their weddings. And on the other hand, I can’t believe there are couples who will travel to Arizona to shoot with me!! I am so grateful for your adventurous hearts!!! • There is no dream too big!!
These love birds flew in from Singapore to do their #prewedding photos. 💗💗 What an honor! Their images are live on the journal this weekend! #linkinbio
As a professional wedding photographer, I have photographed love stories in 20 states, 15 countries, and nearly 200 weddings in the state of Colorado alone. And when John proposed, there was no where I would rather get married than my sweet, hometown #MyCañonCity. I could write a book as to why, but the bottom line is that I am so proud of my roots and the community that raised me. I hope Cañon receives the investment from #Hulu’s #SmallBusinessRevolution and @DeluxeCorp because we have some really good and talented people who mean well in this town, but just need help on the business & execution side of things! It breaks my heart to see businesses open and close and open and close every time I visit Main Street. We need the expertise of you and your team, @AmandakBrinkman! THE DIFFERENCE IS IN THE DETAILS and I know you can help our town & businesses understand that. I am grateful for companies with a WHY like yours. Grateful that #DeluxeCares. Thank you for your heart, this contest, and the momentum you’ve brought to our banana belt of Colorado, the Ñ, Cañon City. 💗 The best is yet to come. #MyCanonCity @SmallBusinessRevolution
If you could celebrate your marriage and shoot anniversary pictures anywhere, where would you go?? ✈️🌏 For Jennifer & Matthew, it was Florence, Italy along the Arno River with the Ponte Vecchio bridge. 💕 🇮🇹 #RTPtravels #RTPanniversaries
