Alice and Nick – Side of the road Engagement Session session

Posted on March 13th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

Yep that it was we did! First off they style in which we captured Alice and Nick was so fun and carefree that we both felt truly inspired the moment we pulled off the road.  Alice and Nick knew of this fantastic little roadside spot they had found in Palm Springs and we just followed along as they took us to the destination.

Once we got out of the car the beautiful pictures kept flowing.  These two feel so comfortable in their own skin and their love is so super easy to capture!  We could have easily just posted their entire engagement session  cause lets be honest, it’s all amazing!

So Jeff and I did our best to narrow it down to our top favs.  Please browse through our recent session of the road gorgeousness between these two!

Posted on March 12th, by admin in blog, senior pics. No Comments

This is Joseph a senior from Bullhead and boy is he hard to keep a focus on!  Seriously I had to have him run for me more than once to get a crystal clear pic where he wasn’t blurred 🙂

Thanks Joseph for heading out to the track and doing some really cool and creative shots with me!

Lindsey + Jon – Sassi Wedding in Scottsdale Arizona

This was our first time shooting at wedding at Sassi in North Scottsdale.  What a gorgeous place and don’t even get me started about the pasta!  Seriously amazing.  Ok onto the beautiful wedding of Jon and Lindsey.  Day of was our first time meeting these two and they where as laid back and relaxed as they seemed on our phone calls.

I love seeing a bride and groom just truly enjoying their day!  This simple yet incredibly gorgeous wedding was a blast to cover.  Lindsey was a total trooper as I drug her out in the dirt in her Jimmy Choo’s!  Thanks for that Lindsey 🙂

Chelsea Lake Havasu Senior Photos

Posted on February 26th, by admin in blog, senior pics. No Comments

Chelsea is one tough cookie and a hell of a Volleyball player!  Right away I knew we had to grab some cool shots of her at her sport!  Then to top off our already totally killer session her dad brought his Ford Fairlane which just set the pic selection over the top.

I love shooting my senior sessions in their own environment!  It raises the bar of creativity between my and my subjects and not to mention just creates better images!

From the moment we met Chelsea and Jacobs through emails back and forth and our phone conversations we knew this was a wedding we just had to shoot!  Not only are these too total babes, and completely in love but their entire group of friends and family where are so warm and sweet!  Their ceremony was maybe the most gorgeously lit ceremony we’ve photographed in a while and the DETAILS……don’t even get me started.  AMAZEBALLS!!!!

We’ve been so thrilled to share this wedding and all the great moments captured!  Just wait till we get the video done!  Eeeek it’s gonna be gorgeous!

Jenna + Justin – Engagement Session at the Desert Bar

Posted on February 19th, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

We’ve shot a the Desert Bar a few times and this time was just as amazing as the last!  If you’ve never seen it for yourself the Desert Bar is pretty fantastic!  About 5 miles off the highway you take an off-road vehicle to this Huge outdoor Oasis, with Live music on stage and tons of people gathered around enjoying their weekend!  Most of which came by way of motorcycle through the desert trail.

Jenna and Justin where so much fun to photograph, laughing and smile the whole time!  We truly just captured them as they where and found different amazing spots and look outs that we’ve never used before!

Here are  a few of our favorites from their engagement shoot at the Desert Bar in Parker AZ.


Jessie and John – Botanical Gardens Scottsdale Az

Posted on February 14th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

We where so excited to get the opportunity to shoot  a Botanical Garden wedding and I almost lost it when I found out that they where going to have a Chihuly Installation the date that their wedding was taking place.  For those of you that aren’t aware of the amazing talents of  DALE CHIHULY he is truly missing out.  He does amazing glass art pieces that will ooooh and awee you and leave you staring as the light changes on each peice.

Ok enough about him.  This is Jessie and John, they had such a gorgeous and sweet wedding and as you can see where pretty easy to photograph.  Take a peak at some of our favorites of their gorgeous day!



I had to sneak this one in.  I typically crop myself out if I see me in a shot, but this one I just love.

that light…….

ummm John, you married a total babe! FYI 😉

Kelly and Aaron – DTLA Engagement Session

Posted on January 23rd, by admin in blog, engagement sessions. No Comments

This is Kelly and Aaron, they are the most fun couple EVER! Seriously, these two are actors from Los Angeles and completely entertaining to be around. Once these two make it big I’m totally selling these images to OK Magazine (ok just kidding). But seriously I think their amazingness speaks for itself in their images of their recent yet sorta complicated engagement session (inside joke).

Guys I’m so thrilled we got to shoot at LACMA, as it’s been a burning desire of mine for years now. Oh and please remind me of the totally amazing idea I have for your wedding day. I’ve got a pretty killer shot worked up in my brain 🙂

Till we meet again!

Amber + Jeff

It’s official you now have an album cover.

Ok so we switched roles for a second, which set came out better?  Their’s or ours?
