This month I flew out of the desert to the beautiful midwest to shoot Danielle and Brandon's sweetheart session in Overland Park, Kansas. Even though it was super hot out there, these two were troopers while I captured glimpses into their sweet relationship at the botanical gardens! #pureinartsweetheart
Emilee and Charlie are both in the military and while they live in different cities far away from each other, they make it a point to keep their marriage stays strong by meeting up whenever possible. I was thrilled when they contacted me to do a sunrise photoshoot to remember their weekend trip to the beautiful city of Tucson. Even though we all had to be up before 5 am that day, it was 100% worth it to capture that soft golden desert light! Keep an eye out on the blog of these two next week 💗 #pureinartsweetheart
This weekend I had the honor of pouring my heart into teaching an intimate wedding photography workshop to 10 local photographers at my third installment of #TheSweetheartWorkshop. I am so proud of each and every one of them for spending 9 hours out of their Sunday with 100+ degree Tucson weather by investing in education that I hope will take them far in their careers as photographers!
The team of local vendors who contribute their time and talent into making #TheSweetheartWorkshop full of beautiful details blows my mind every single time. Tucson may be a smaller community compared to some of the big cities but the wedding experts here are some of the best professionals I've seen in the 7 years I've been photographing weddings. If you need recommendations for cake artists, hair and makeup, wedding gowns, florists, DJs, wedding coordinators, etc. just reach out to me and I'll make sure you're in good hands!
When my couples trust me completely to capture the intimate journey of their marriage and those little “moments” between them, we get images that show their connection and photos to look back on that remind them of the person they fell in love with. Thank you, David and Soley, for embracing this photo shoot for all its worth and for letting me into this little glimpse of the rest of your lives together! Their engagement session is featured on the blog tonight, link in profile. #pureinartsweetheart
Does Christa’s yellow dress not coordinate perfectly with that blooming yellow Palo Verde tree?! And they drove down from Phoenix for their engagement pictures, which also happened to be on her birthday... how fun is that! 🎂 Besides suffering from seasonal allergies, I can’t get enough of desert sweetheart sessions! 😉 #pureinartsweetheart @christaboon
Kathya and Henry braved a windy day for their desert sweetheart session, and I’m so glad they did because the gusts and dust totally worked in our favor... love those glory mountains! Last night was so much fun getting to know the two of them! And listen to this... they decided to go on a spontaneous road trip to Las Vegas immediately after our photo shoot... umm how cool is that?! #pureinartsweetheart
