Maya + Dace: Proposal Preview

It was so much fun collaborating with Dace for a surprise proposal to my sister. We thought she was on to us, but as the coming photos will show she was shocked and ecstatic! The set up: a couple’s photo shoot, a stroll in the park, by the fountains…a nice afternoon out. She was none the wiser. My talented second shooter, Sarah was unaware of our plans and she nearly dropped her camera when Dace popped the question. Priceless. I’m not going to spoil it by showing the ring just yet. More to come!


Maya + Dace: Sedona Couples Portraits

Maya and Dace were ecstatic about their Sedona getaway and invited me along for some portraits. We stopped at tlaquepaque, a sprawling art gallery or should I say galleries…it can’t be explained, you simply have to experience it. They are both professionals in the field of Counseling so they were eager to take a break from their hectic schedules. Wouldn’t you know it, shortly after we arrived at the art gallery complex it started to rain…first it was a mist…then a drizzle…which made the scene even more beautiful. The greens were greener, the red rocks {which Sedona is known for} even more reddish. We had a good time and hardly noticed the rain!
