Scottsdale and Phoenix Portrait Photographer
I specialize in on location portraits. I can come to your house, office or we can pick an outdoor location. Outdoor sessions will take place 1-2 hours before sunset for the best light. I offer family portraits, business headshots, high school and college senior sessions, pet photography, one year cake smashing, couples portraits and online dating photos.
Destination Wedding Photographer
My first destination wedding was at San Francisco City Hall. My favorite part of destination weddings is that I'm usually staying at the same hotel as the guests and get the chance to get to know them before the actual wedding day. Destination wedding photography has given me new adventures, introduced me to new and exciting places and cultures and left me with lots of amazing memories! I've been honored to photograph destination weddings in San Francisco (City Hall), Rocky Point (Sonoran Sky), Portland (The Foundry at Oswego Lake), Palm Springs (Ingleside Inn), Carpinteria, Payson (Christopher Creek)
All weddings are unique and I cater to all different cultures, religions, and sexual orientation. I've had the honor of photographing many different cultural, religious and same sex weddings. I love when I photograph a new culture or religion, it gives me the opportunity to learn and grow! Here are a few types of weddings I've photographed: Albanian, Catholic, Christian, Hindu, Hispanic, Islamic, Jewish, Korean, Lutheran, Muslim, Persian, Rwandan, and Vietnamese.
