Feel so lucky! Third year in a row capturing this beautiful mama and all her crazy boys. And this time we fought through the chilly weather to get the shots. So worth it :)
The super sweet Stephanie and Miguel were married on 10.26.13 at the St. Thomas Aquinas Catholic Church in Avondale. I was blown away by the church as I drove up the first time. Large, beautiful grounds for pictures (I was obsessed with the wooden doors as you’ll see) and an even more beautiful sanctuary where the ceremony took place. Family is super important to these two, so the day was filled with lots of love and lots of laughs with everyone that was there. And at the end of the night, it was a serious party! Me and my team were pretty sad to be leaving :)
Thanks to all the wonderful vendors and my team of ladies, Dacia (2nd shooter), Audrey (3rd shooter), and Michelle (assistant) for coming along and making it an even better day! Congrats Stephanie and Miguel ♥

We all know I love Reese’s. And I couldn’t believe it last month when a friend mentioned to me that I’d never given away my MOST FAVORITE candy for Mimi’s Favorite Things. Really??? I must take care of that. And right now is the perfect month (and week) to give away some chocolatey sweets. Not only does this time of year signify lots of treats for Halloween, but it also kicks off the Reese’s holiday season. You see, my most favorite Reese’s of all are the holiday ones. You know, the ones shaped like a pumpkin or a tree or a heart? Those ones are different. They are thicker with more peanut butter, they don’t have the hard crust, and they are just more delicious. Do I have some other supporters of this? Hands up! So it starts with the Halloween pumpkins, which leads quickly to Christmas Trees, then Valentine’s hearts, and finally Easter eggs. I then get around a six month Reese’s detox before we start the craziness all over again :)
So let’s kick off this Reese’s peanut buttery season together by stocking up on some pumpkins and some other Halloween favorites of mine!

Kate and Corey’s day really couldn’t have been more perfect…an amazing venue (a true hidden gem on the outskirts of Phoenix), beautifully planned details (loved their colors), 85 degrees and sunny, and at the end of the day, a happily married couple. My favorite!!
They were married on 10.19.13 at Encanterra. When you enter the driveway of the country club, you kind of feel like you are entering another land. Open spaces, green moss and lawns galore, and gorgeous wood and stone buildings. A nice change from the city and so much beautiful to choose from for pictures!
Thanks to all the vendors that made the day so perfect, my ladies, Dacia (2nd shooter) and Michelle (assistant), for coming along, and of course to Kate and Corey for having me a part of it all! Enjoy :)

First wedding of the season and it couldn’t have been better! I had been so looking forward to Amy and Larry’s wedding day since meeting them last fall for their engagement session. A laid back, adorable, supa-in-love couple…just my type ;)
What means the most to these two? Each other and the people in their lives. So that is what the day was about! Their wedding party was made up of their closest family and friends, their guests traveled from all over the world to celebrate, and there wasn’t a moment that went by that they weren’t smiling (or kissing). See for yourselves!
Thanks to 2nd shooter, Kim, for being amazing and my awesome helper, Michelle, for coming along!
