Jackie & Terrence - Mock Wedding Photos in the Park 6 of 6

These were the last in the series of Tierra Verde Lake Park in Litchfield Park, AZ and quite likely my favorite. Jackie and Terrence met in the sandbox at the age of 4. It was love at first site. We had planned to shoot engagement photos, but they had surprised me by not only getting married early but buy showing up in full wedding attire to shoot a mock formal shoot. Since they didn't have time to have one taken at their actual ceremony, I was more than honored that they chose to let me recreate it for them. The pictures are just stunning and I just love them... Congradulations!






Ayala Senior Photos

I just love senior photos. These were taken in Avondale, Arizona of Bryan. He's going to school to become a chef. Fortunately, he brought along his culinary uniform and knife set so were were able to document his journey for him. He definitely looks the part.

These were part five in my photos in the park series taken at Tierra Verde Lake Park in Litchfield, Arizona. This was the largest group we shot that day. We had children, pets, and multiple families. I think the photos turned out great, in particular some of these of the youngest little boy, who has so much personality. Amazingly enough, he is just a little older than his niece!

The photos were taken at Tierra Verde Lake Park in Litchfield Park, Arizona. This was an extremely fun group of people. They were a delight to take photos of. The shoot was a breeze and you can just see the fun on their faces. The following rave review was sent to me today.

"Who knew family photos could actually be, dare I say...fun?? Since my early days, I've been an avid tree-climber but I never imagined it would be captured on film w/ my family joining me! I felt like the Swiss Family Robinson. That was just one of the enjoyable moments we laughed about during our shoot. One thing that also tickled us was the repore you and your husband/assistant/flashmaster, Steven, had with both each other and our family. I think the relationship between photographer and client is the most important thing. We were constantly entertained and the laughter & smiles came quite naturally. You & Steven created positive energy, putting us at ease and making us feel comfortable. You were also able to work with my serial blinker sister and actually capture some great shots of all us with our eyes open! And the pictures? Completely AMAZING! The results were presented incredibly professionally and the pictures were outstanding (how awesome is that metallic finish?!!) We had such a blast viewing them on the DVD and selecting our favorite poses. Our family is the epitome of satisfied customers and will gladly be promoting your work to any & all who are interested. Thank you again for creating tangible memories for us!"

Photos in the Park - 3 of 6

This is shoot three in a series of family photos taken at Tierra Verde Lake Park in Litchfield Park, AZ. This was a mini session shot with a larger section of the Ayala family. I wanted to show the closeness of this sweet little family through portraits. The proofs are so heart felt and connected. I just love them!

Photos in the Park - 1 of 6

This shoot is the first in a series of 6 that we shot in at Tierra Verde Lake Park in Litchfield, Arizona. This is an engagement session for a darling couple Kendra and Raul who will be leaving soon to start their life in Canada. They came to me through a referral and I had the opportunity to shoot these for them. Simple, elegant and sweet!




Angie & Greg on the Farm at South Mountain

These are photos of Angie and Greg's engagement session at The Farm at South Mountain in Phoenix, AZ. I love these images. They are so spontaneous and free. They are so great and the location is amazing. I met Angie years ago in grade school and she ended up contacting me 10 years later. I feel really lucky to be able to shoot these for her. I can't wait til the wedding at the Antique Wedding House were they will be having Chris Parker Project play.
