I heard today is #earthday which made me want to do something fun: look through the archives and pull together some of my favorite shots that showcase the beauty of this planet we call home. 🙌🏻 I’ve shared it before, but one of the best things for me as a photographer is bearing witness to so many beautiful sunsets (Some featured in these photos!). I truly feel so lucky. I’m grateful for every single one. 🙌🏻 Every time I witness one, it reminds me of a great big God who must love painting the sky every single night. And the best part is that it doesn’t matter what place your in, how hard/good life is, or how much money you have or don’t. The sun always sets, and its colors always glow. And all you have to do is show up to see and enjoy it. I love that so much. My tangible reminder of His lasting faithfulness 🙌🏻.
After a week of vacation, here’s exactly how you’ll find me today! 😉 In our family, we have this motto: “work hard, rest hard” and we take it seriously. A week on the beach in San Diego was exactly the rest my little fam needed last week and I soaked up every moment with my littles! Truly amazing. ❤️ And I’m so happy to be back at work this week, genuinely. That’s the thing I’ve found, balance produces that kind of joy/renewed purpose in my work. I’ve made the mistake of thinking working more, more, more will get me ahead. Let me save you some heartache: it won’t. But rest will do something powerful in you. It will give clarity and joy. It really will. It does for me. ❤️ Today I’ll be writing a blog post for a cool collab hitting the internet soon, editing a sneak peek for a super sweet couple 🙌🏻, and getting prepped for my lecture presentation the @thehybridco in 2 weeks! Now I want to know about you!How are you spending your Monday?! 💪🏻💪🏻💪🏻 ❤️ PC: @rachaelkoscicaphoto
My friend Jackie of @wildoneevents designed a gorgeous setup for last month's quarterly @wipaphoenix event! Wipa is a local networking group for wedding professionals that exists to educate and elevate the wedding industry while building solid, supporting community. This year I've had the pleasure of serving on the board as Vice President, and I have been so overwhelmed by the support and effort of this year's board and their commitment to upholding these values for our community! I'm so excited for what's in store this year! Now, enjoy these pictures from last month's event, beautifully designed to show off the effortless, natural beauty of the @thebouldersresort ! | @wildoneevents @thebouldersresort @serendipitycinema @latavolalinen @victoriayorkdesign @phoenixgif @eventrentsaz @theconfettistudio @dang.finerentals
Beautiful bride Callen looking elegant in lush Texas on her wedding day ❤️❤️❤️. Her and Michael’s day was one of my faves ❤️❤️❤️. @theterraceclubatx
A chance of rain brought the ceremony inside for K+K, but when it looks this pretty, who cares?! The live musicians were tucked away behind this gorgeous escort card display with the aisle just in front of them. I love that @fsscottsdale has so many gorgeous windows too, so even when you’re inside, there opportunity for natural light to stream through and light up the scene ❤️❤️❤️. | @imoni_events @luxflorist @victoriayorkdesign @fsscottsdaleweddings
This session gave me LIFE. The sun has been hidden behind clouds during a lot of my most recent shoots, so to have this beautiful, full, glowing sunlight gave my heart pure JOY! Not to mention creating photographs and capturing such a special time in life for dear friends! This session reminded me of the reason why I do what I do ❤️.
