July 31, 2014 Cleo and Clementine for Java Magazine
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 dress that everyone expects a bride to wear. It was perfect and she was stunning. Just look at the way that Alex holds his breath the moment he sees her come around the corner. Get the tissues!
So much love for this wedding.

April 21, 2014 Wylie and Lauren
Wylie and Lauren might have met at trivia night, but they also worked together at Phoenix Children’s Hospital. Trivia night was less about the trivia and more about getting to know each other!
Downtown Phoenix residents, these two planned a fantastic wedding that incorporated everything they love about their city. They prepped at Hotel Palomar, got married at Bentley Projects and partied at The Duce.
A huge thanks to Mackenzie Goodman for second shooting!

March 22, 2014 Kieran and Sam
A couple of years ago, Sam was living in Phoenix, while Kieran was living in Los Angeles. They were utterly in love and Kieran was ready to propose. After traveling back and forth between cities, they realized that their homes were exactly 400 miles apart. EXACTLY 400 miles. So cool, right? It’s the kind of thing that most of us briefly talk about and then forget about it. Not Kieran. He’s pretty romantic. When he planned the proposal, he decided to pull over at the 200 mile point and propose to the girl of his dreams. It was beautiful and perfect.
When Kieran, Sam and I talked about their engagement session, the idea of going back to that exact spot came up. We all high-fived each other and agreed that it was THE BEST IDEA EVER.
Here’s our little road trip/engagement session to Palm Springs. Enjoy.
Oh! Check out these two talented people!
Kieran is a film maker and his new film “Broken Leg” is being featured at the Phoenix Film Festival next month! http://kieranthompson.com/
Samantha is a candlemaker. MY FAVORITE CANDLES EVER. http://standardwax.bigcartel.com/

May 23, 2012 Best Friends: La Petite Magazine
Author: Amy Hanen
Yesterday, a wonderful shoot by Kym Ventola was featured in La Petite Magazine, a premiere collection of everything for that little one in your life including: fashion, design, DIY projects, stories, and much more amazingness! This unique magazine is perfect for those mothers who want to be inspired and encouraged to create and enrich their kids and their own lives. Nowadays, it is so hard to find unique and edgy kids’ stuff, that isn’t plastered with glittery princesses or Buzz Lightyear. I can’t believe I am just now discovering this, but oh-so-glad I have….cannot wait to have a kid of my own!
Kym was approached by Alex Evjen of AVE Styles to collaborate on this great shoot. Kym and Alex worked together to create a cute and eclectic vision of these ‘Best Friends’. As you can see, they work wonderfully together.
This styled shoot featured just two models with some amazing clothes. The focus was to get away from the frilly pink clothing for girls, and not be afraid to dress your little guy in teal skinny jeans. As an aunt of two boys myself, I love to get them clothes that you wouldn’t find in any typical kids clothing store. I look for clothes that stand out, and express the child’s unique style.
