These images were taken last summer in Arizona. Brooke had some fashion forward hippie attire to model for a company so she enlisted me to shoot them. You might remember the shots I posted of the film from our session. These images were shot digitally.
The first image was shot on film and the rest are digital. Do you see a difference? Honestly I love the soft look of film so, so much. Also, that faint sun flare is out of this world. Anyway, dont you love the creativity here? She showed up with all these fun outfits showcasing her darling little bump. I also got to meet and photograph their baby which was a treat!
I shot this wedding last year at the Mesa Arizona Temple. It was after their ceremony so about mid-day and very bright, hot, and gorgeous outside. I'm still booking weddings in Arizona this year- I'm excited about a couple I already have set- and my Utah weddings as well! These images are digital.
This session was shot at Nichols Park in Arizona months back. The first 5 images are film and the last 5 are digital. I can't wait to start sharing some images from beautiful Utah!
I posted some film from this wedding already but I wanted to post some reception shots and other images (this time digital) from their day. I have so many weddings to go back to and share that happened in 2014! I want to post a variety of film AND digital so you, my potential clients, can decide what you like best!
Oh film. Anyway isn't Griffin so beautiful? Here are some shots on film from our session! By the way, if you haven't heard I am now a Utah photographer! Yes, I moved to Provo/Salt Lake area but I am STILL booking weddings in Arizona!
Back in the summer I had the opportunity to shoot a beautiful wedding in Phoenix. It was one of my first weddings incorporating film. Here are some film shots from the day! I got PLENTY of great digital shots but I just love the color and feel of film so that's what I'm sharing! When we took these it was after the cute couple said "I do" and before the reception - at a park in Phoenix. A dust storm was rolling in but we were lucky it didn't mess with us too bad- just a little cloud cover (:
My love for film photography has only deepened in the last few months. It really is something special, don't you agree? This was my first shot of a family on film and I really love it! I can't wait to take my business to Utah and get to shoot at new locations and meet new people... but I have to say I have been so grateful for everyone who has ever booked me in the past five years. Can you believe this is my FIFTH YEAR?! I'm especially grateful to my returning clients; like this sweet family. Tansey, I hope you do come to Utah so I can take your pictures again! Such a sweet, gorgeous family.
Jackie and Jordan are the first wedding I shot where I brought my new film camera! These were from June. I was still learning about film but I think they turned out pretty great! I've come a long way though and I'm excited to keep shooting more and more film! Finally my wildest photographer dreams are coming true (:
I can't believe how long it's been since I've posted. I've shot so much film since I got my film camera and this is only my second post of my film shots? Craziness. If you wanted to see more examples go HERE where I also show you the difference between film and digital. I have pricing for each medium so before you book with me it's good to know what style of photography interests you the most!
So this is Brooke. You saw her in a previous post. She contacted me again about doing this styled shoot. I love a retro feel in pictures! Anyway I'll do my best to post more... and if you are a client and your pictures didn't make it to my website of Facebook it's not because I don't love you... I literally post like 1% of my work! Thanks to ALL who I have had the chance to work with year. It's been the best year yet!
I've had such a great time familiarizing myself with film. I feel blessed to get to practice both mediums- film and digital. For me though film is just prettier. The colors are dreamy and the depth and realness is unlike anything. I'm sure you know Christina (@newdarlings). Aren't they the cutest? They were so great to work with!
Earlier this year I got to work with several awesome seniors. I was able to try out this new location and I loved it! I haven't been back since it's a little ways from me but I hope to go back before I move! Those red rocks are gorgeous, as is this adorable senior! This was before I even bought my film camera otherwise I would've taken that along.
How awesome is this truck? I loved riding in it and shooting it. We had a lot of fun even while we were melting! This is proof you can still look beautiful even in the heat of the summer. Don't let those temps stop you from booking a shoot (;
Hello all! I'm running an AWESOME giveaway over on instagram! One person will win a photo shoot from me and another will win a $50 visa gift card!

I don't do giveaways very often so don't miss out! Also, stick around because there are going to be some fun changes around here.
I was privileged to get to photograph these lovely ladies just this past weekend. Harley Chapman, a local makeup artist and hairdresser contacted me about this project. She was the brains behind this collaboration and she did an excellent job styling these girls! What gorgeous models too, am I right? Anyway I hope you enjoy part one of these- part two will be just as fun (and include an old Ford truck)! You can find Harley on instagram at @harleydoeshair if you are looking for a talented lady to help you out with your hair or makeup!
Katie and Timo were such a sweet couple! Aren't they just so adorable?! I was blessed to get to work with them for their engagements, bridals, and wedding day. Here are some of their reception photos. I took and posted probably too many candids of people; but I love candids! And I remember not even remembering who showed up to my reception (like I knew half the names in our guest book!) and so I wished I had more pictures to go along with it. Thanks Katie and Timo!
I had a blast shooting Haley and Brandon's engagements, wedding day, and these were from their bridal session with me. I love the Mesa, Arizona Temple grounds, they are so beautiful! But a couple as cute as this... who's looking at the trees? (;
Congrats you two! Here's to a lifetime of happiness together.
Months back I was able to take this families pictures. The daughter graduated this year so it was also a combined senior session! I absolutely LOVE that they brought along their historic vehicle to use as a prop. Such great work those guys did on that truck, it's so awesome! It was a SUPER bright morning but shooting in direct sun has it's benefits!
These pictures were taken over a year ago but I figured it was high time I share them! I occasionally enjoy doing styled shoots or creative shoots. The inspiration to this one was of course my imaginative little boys.
This was part two. The first set is on my old blog!
