let's be friends!
I'm a photographer and educator based in Scottsdale, Arizona! Giving joyful people laughter filled and stress free photos and helping photographers turn their dream to grow their business into a plan that actually works!
Oh my goodness, I don’t know if I could even be MORE excited about this post! :) For this Arizona girl, shooting in Oregon has truly been one of the most amazing experiences of my life! I have loved all of the locations I’m having the opportunity to photograph while I’m here, especially this one! When Marina and I were talking about the shoot, she mentioned that she’d love to go to Mountainside Lavender Farm. She called them, only to find out they close earlier than I’d like to shoot, but they decided to make an exception for us, which means we had the whole place to ourselves! :) Everything from her gorgeous gown, all the way to the location, was planned and put together in only two days. It all just fell perfectly into place! :)
Marina happens to be pregnant at the same time as her sister, Alina, so she thought it would be fun to bring her along on the shoot! And I’m so glad she did! I had such a lovely evening taking photos of both Marina and her sister in this breathtaking location! They are both some of the sweetest girls you will ever meet and it doesn’t hurt that they are BEAUTIFUL!! This shoot was an absolute DREAM!! :)
Marina is a makeup artist who also blogs about fashion and beauty! If you’re interested in seeing more from her, follow her on Instagram! :)
Thank you to Mountainside Lavender Farm! And if you’re interested in her amazing gown, it is designed by Watters and you can find it here! :)
Marina, you are GORGEOUS!!! :)
These next photos were the first ones we took! I usually start my blog posts with the photos that were taken at the beginning of the shoot, but I just had to flip it this time because I’m loving the photos in the lavender!! I still love these ones too though. ;)
