Paige Ashcroft is a true artist. She understands hair, beauty and the overall creative vision, which is why I have loved working with her for a long time. Not only is she amazing at styling beautiful hair but she is a doll to work with and we've become great friends through the years. She was so kind to answer a few questions about beauty trends, what really makes wedding hair look great all day

I think every bride can agree that planning a wedding takes a LOT of time and energy. Of course, it's all worth it because brides know what they want and want to make sure everything is as close to perfect as it can be. Katherine Thornhill, owner of Lucky & In Love, is a Phoenix-based wedding planner who is simply excellent at what she does and knows all of this better than anyone. I

Nikki + Conrad are family to one of my best friends in the entire world. When I found out that Nikki wanted a family portrait session to highlight her exciting maternity news, I was so happy to be a part of it. We shot in a few different locations in and around their Phoenix home. It was a lovely evening.  

Spotlight: Standard Wax

October 14, 2014

I've known Samantha and Andrew of Standard Wax for a little while now. I was so, so happy to get to shoot their beautiful, unique products. This week Samantha provided Ventola Photography with some really valuable details about what defines Standard Wax as a brand, why imagery is a major pillar within their business strategy as well as advice for those who might be looking to start their own business. In other words, they've got it going on and

Alexandra Evjen of A.V.E. Styles is the REAL deal. She is a stylist worthy of endless reviews and I am so happy to have 1) been able to meet her and 2) work with her! I highly encourage you to check out what she's been up to, here. Not only is she amazing at putting together a killer outfit but she has almost 1 million followers on Pinterest so needless to say, she

Being a photographer has allowed me to meet some of the most talented people I have ever worked with. Stephanie Neiheisel is one such artist. She is a beauty inside and out and I'm in sheer awe every single time I work with her. Anyone who has done a few shoots knows that getting a shoot just right (having it come out looking just like you imagined) takes multiple people and a

When I look back at Rachel + Tim's Munds Park wedding I'll remember how beautiful it was. The natural beauty was in everyone that attended and the landscape around them. I have been shooting Rachel for a while now so I feel privileged to be both her friend and her wedding photographer. I will cherish her and Tim's day forever! They are an absolute darling couple and their wedding couldn't have been more

I've shared a few sneak peeks of Jess + Nate's wedding in Los Angeles. Now I get to share a few more of my favorites from their big day. I love, love, love this couple with all of my heart. Jess is a humble beauty. She is truly one of the kindest, most loving people I have ever met. And Nate is just the same. Their entire wedding was about gratitude and love. They thanked EVERYONE the entire

A suite at the Hotel Valley Ho was the perfect place for these two to say "I do" with their closest friends and family. From the minute I arrived until the time I left, the energy was so good! No stress; just love, laughter and (happy) tears. It was one of the most genuine ceremonies I had ever seen. I love that Augustina wore the dress that SHE wanted; not the

Aaron Chamberlin is a local public figure in Phoenix, and a lover of the community he lives in. As the owner of St. Francis and The Cafe at Phoenix Public Market, Aaron is a strong advocate for healthy, local food and building a strong community;  all things that I connect with. After spending over an hour with these two, I was overwhelmed to find out about the wedding details. Aaron proposed to
