Hi and welcome to my online home! I am a photographer located in Phoenix, Arizona. I'm married to my wonderful hubby, Jon, and we have 7 fur babies: Kitty Amazing, Baby Kitty, Petunia, and China, our cats, Hank and Seymour, our dogs, and Junichiro, our hedgehog. Admittedly, Junichiro is more of a spiky baby than a fur baby. I love travel, nutella, donuts, cupcakes, (okay just bring me all the carbs alright?), reading, green tea, soccer, dancing, and soft pillow cases. I love having you, I hope you stay awhile.
Lenny and Stephanie. Two of the hands down nicest, most down to earth people I’ve ever met. The kind of people you want to keep spending time with.
These two met 4 years ago through their friends who thought that they just might be perfect for each other. And those friends were right. So Angi, here’s to you and your matchmaking skills! Since that time, these two have been adventuring through life together, and even bought their first house. And it was at that house that Lenny proposed to Stephanie in front of their friends and family at their housewarming party.
This couple lives to serve others. Literally. Stephanie is a nurse and Lenny is a firefighter, so I know who I’ll be calling in case of emergency! These two are hardworking, funny, kind, and also know how to party. So they are definitely my kind of people!
They say rain on your wedding day is good luck, so Lenny and Stephanie got luck in literal buckets during their ceremony at Mcintosh Ranch in Ellensburg. At one point it was pouring rain, but the sun was also shining. But after the rain, comes the rainbow. And out it popped to bless this union. Really can’t ask for a bigger sign that that on your wedding day!
These two honored both their roots during throughout the day including Lenny’s Korean and Polynesian roots and Stephanie’s Native American ones. And can I just add that I am really loving the Polynesian money dance tradition?! The one where the groom and other male members of the family lay on the ground while the bride steps on them while hula dancing? I’m all about that. And the wild dancing that accompanies it. Importantly, this time I knew what was coming and only received a few minor injuries lol
The day was filled with fun, amazing food, and epic dancing. I love when everyone is on the dance floor letting loose (including grandparents!!)! Watching everyone have the time of their life reminds me why I am a wedding photographer. Because I get to capture memories like these!
Lenny and Stephanie-thanks for choosing me to capture your day. I’ve loved getting to know you and can’t wait to see what the future holds!
