We had the opportunity to spend time with the Bortmess Family at Empire Ranch for a family photo session. The session also included a full Senior session with their daughter Mariah. It was a great evening to spend out in the grasslands of Sonoita. Mariah is one of the cheer captains at Cienega High School, always smiling and full of spirit. The family chose the western scenery of Empire Ranch, and it fit them perfectly.
Jackie chose to have a desert backdrop for her senior portrait session. We had a great time at the session with her mother helping out. Jackie has those eyes all photographers enjoy having in front of the lens, easy to make us look good. Jackie did a super job which created some great images for her Senior Portfolio.
The Spooner’s were a great bunch who got up to catch first light in the Arizona Desert. We combined a family shoot with their Seniors, Jordan and Bianca. The light was great, the morning was awesome, and the family was a joy to be around. Jordan and Bianca did and awesome job with their session. They are a military family – Shout out to all the veterans.
Nate is the younger brother of Michael, who we had a senior photo session with two years ago. Nate is an outstanding high school athlete who is headed to Pima CC to play golf. Nate’s mother Gloria enjoyed the shoot we did of Michael at Saguaro Buttes and requested the same location for Nate. Nate did an outstanding job at the session and produced a great portfolio.
The Conti/Gallardo wedding ceremony was held at The Gallery Country Club. The beautiful bride, Kelly, prepared with her mother and sister at the Ritz Carlton. The couple chose to do a "first look” prior to the ceremony…the result was a great release for the couple, an intimate time with each other, and then some nice moments to spend with their immediate family. About 30 percent of our weddings are first look - highly recommended, but not for everyone. The ceremony was a picture-perfect sunset overlooking the saguaros of the Catalina’s. The Gallery provides a great reception area with a huge wrap-around patio. Views from all locations were phenomenal. Really enjoyed our time capturing this event…Ryan and Kelly were so locked into each other - meant to be, wonderful couple.
