Mandy and Jeff Wedding, Regale! at DC Ranch, Scottsdale, AZ

In spite of what some might superstitiously consider a spooky date, Mandy and Jeff's Friday the 13th wedding went off quite beautifully and without a hitch. The intimate ceremony took place in the Plaza on Market Street, reverently performed by minister Larry James. Mandy and Jeff included some special touches, including a rose exchange, and a sand ceremony using both heart-shaped vessels and a monogrammed, heart-shaped vase.

How We Spent the "Apocalypse"

Not surprisingly, the world didn't end on May 21 as Harold Camping had predicted on Family Radio. Amanda and I happened to be camping on that day at Colcord Ridge on the Mogollon Rim, between Payson and Heber. It was a great time to disconnect and immerse ourselves in the natural rhythm of the world.

A Sonoran Mountain Kingsnake that slithered across the highway as we drove south of Young. It brings to mind a helpful rhyme I learned in my scouting days, to distinguish between the very deadly coral snake, and this non-venomous kingsnake: "Red touches yellow, kills a fellow. Red touches black, friend of Jack." Either way, I wasn't about to pick this guy up!

What camping trip would be complete without chili dogs!

Amy and Travis Engagement Session, Tempe Center for the Arts

Back in April, we spent a beautiful Sunday afternoon with Amy and Travis photographing their Engagement Session at the Tempe Center for the Arts and Tempe Town Lake. It's amazing how complementary orange, gold, and blue hues seemed to work their way into every image we captured--but more importantly--how the photos glow with the infectious smiles of these two together!
