Emily {senior photography - Verrado}

What an amazing experience it was to photograph this gorgeous girl! I have known her and her family for, oh, probably close to 10 years now, and taking her senior pictures makes me feel so old! She is an amazing young woman with a constant smile, love for life, passion for God, and so easy to be with and have fun with. 

Emily, I can't wait to see where God takes you in life, and I am so thankful for your friendship! *hugs*

Kelby {portrait photography}

For those of you who saw my last blog post of the pictures from Gabriel & Bethany's wedding (http://atruefocus.blogspot.com/2015/06/gabriel-bethany-casa-grande-wedding.html), this girl right here shot quite a few of those! 

Kelby flew in from Oregon to help me shoot their wedding. She came in the day before, and we got a few minutes to take some shots of her! I am so thankful for her friendship and all her amazing help over the weekend of the wedding!

Gabriel & Bethany {Casa Grande Wedding}

Where do I even start to describe this amazingly special day? It was beautiful, crazy, fun, romantic, and most of all, a shining witness to the hand of God in the lives of these two people and their families.

The wedding was held at the cutest little farm way out in the middle of nowhere. You drive through the barren desert, but when you pull up to this place, it's like a little oasis of grass and trees and flowers! So cute!

The girls got ready in their adorable little house.

While the guys got ready in the bunkhouse that was out back.

While the bride and bridesmaids finished getting ready, we took the groomsmen pictures. Wow. What a hilarious, epic, incredible group of guys!

Cutest. Ring bearer. Ever.

Their first kiss ♥

These girls were such troopers! It was hot, and they stood in the sun and smiled and laughed like nothing was wrong! And that picture ^^ was taken in the smallest little area. See the picture below? We had a person on each side holding the bushes back so I could get a full group shot!

And then, my favorite part of the day. Just the photographers, and the bride and groom.

Bethany, girl, you are gorgeous!

Back to the reception, toasts, and dancing!

There was lots of laughter........

........and quite a few tears, too.

Gabriel danced not only with his mom, but with each of his sisters, as well.

When the time for the father/daughter dance came, Bethany and her dad surprised everyone!!

I think he enjoyed it ;)


We got a few more minutes to take pictures in the beautiful afternoon light, and I'm so glad we did.

And they're off!

Gabriel & Bethany, I am praying for God's blessing on your entire married life. Love you both so much, and thank you, thank you for allowing me to photograph your day!
