During a barefoot Texas childhood full of rooftop dinners and video scavenger hunts with friends that felt like family, I often wished there was a way to wish on a star and freeze time. There’s really nothing more magical than being surrounded by the heartfelt laughter of the people you love most, is there? So, after life’s ups and downs took me on a wild ride, I recognized that -- despite ambitious plans to become a surgeon someday -- my greatest passion in life truly lay in preserving those luminous moments of joy for others. And what more extraordinary moments of joy are there than the ones you find on a wedding day!
Today, I tell the timeless love stories of the most whimsical and wonderful brides the world has to offer! Whether I’m welcoming a destination bride to beautiful Arizona -- the state I now call home -- or packing my bags to document an elopement abroad, I am always delighted by the uniqueness of each couple I meet. It doesn’t matter if we are preparing for a photo session or blissfully trading notes on the best local restaurants, I love every opportunity I have to connect with couples, sharing in a moment of their happiness together.
But best of all, picking up my camera full time has given me the chance to work side-by-side with my biggest supporter, favorite lightsaber duel opponent, and high school sweetheart, Brian. As my second shooter and behind the scenes guru, Brian inspires me to take my art to levels I never thought I could. His generous spirit and drive to succeed is that extra little something-something (the pixie dust, if you will...and I hope you do!) that makes what we do here so special.
When we aren’t catching up with couples, planning our next destination wedding trip, or editing away on our latest gallery, you can probably catch us playing backyard kickball with our seven kiddos or heading out to a restaurant for a hot date…during which I will probably try to convince Brian to let me redecorate another room in our house or something! (Note from Brian: *sigh*)
But enough about us! We look forward to getting to know you, hearing your proposal story, and daydreaming about your wedding day. Let’s chat soon and begin your journey to breathtaking wedding photography you’ll treasure forever.
Shar & Brian
Engagement sessions are a fabulous we for us to get to know you and how you interact as a couple. Our engagements are relaxed and directed minimally to capture you both how are naturally together. We understand our approach isn't for everyone, but when the right people work together we have found that magic can happen! We love when we can share a connection with our couples and share our same values.
We devote ourselves to all the details leading up to your wedding day. Getting to know our couples is key, so that we can truly capture it all authentically and true to the client. It’s exciting to hear what you envision for your wedding day from the overall ambiance down to the colors, scenery, and priority moments you can't live without.
