Yes, website and blog changes are STILL coming in the near future….

But for now, I just had to post a peek at Brian and Gwendolyn’s A W E S O M E wedding album! Wowza!! This is an example of a “flush mount” album for any of you who are interested.

Here are some views of the actual album. Unfortunately, I see that my red walls in my dining room produce funky color distortions, so, sorry about that. The cover is a yummy, dark brown smooth leather. Really, makes you want to just eat it. Brian and Gwen, like I told you, these pics are NOTHING compared to how cool this album is in real life. I will be getting it in the mail asap this week to you!

The Specs:

10×10″ leather flush mount album

26 spreads

PRICELESS representation of the most significant day of their lives








And here are a couple of my favorite spreads from Brian and Gwendolyn’s album!

Last weekend, I had the privilege of second shooting for a local photographer and friend, Jenny Spires. She was shooting a wedding for some dear friends of hers from her church. The wedding, and all its people, was just beautiful. Everything from the colors, to the style and decor, to the HUGE smiles plastered on the bride and groom’s faces just screamed of JOY and CELEBRATION. This was my first time to be a second shooter, and it was a ton of fun. I focussed more on the candids, details… the fun stuff. 🙂 When I am the primary photographer at weddings, I rarely get to shoot as many of these kinds of shots that I would want, so I was kinda giddy about it all. Jenny did a fantastic job! Check out more of her work HERE and HERE! It was fun seeing her interact with so many of the guests and wedding party, as most of them were her friends. You can tell there was a huge amount of respect her friends had for her both as a person and as a photographer. Here are just a “few” of my favorites from the day:

Its finally LIVE! I have been working on a new website, actually TWO websites – CHP Portraits and CHP Weddings! Check them out here:

In honor of the new website and new pricing (contact me for a 2008 price list) and new location (Phoenix Arizona baby!), I am going to be offering some killer “specials” this summer. These specials are for local clients only at this time. I want to get to know some fellow Phoenix-onians (or whatever we call ourselves here)!

Here are the first batch of specials ~ stay tuned for more! This is going to be a fun summer! 🙂 🙂


In honor of my 30th birthday this year, I am offering a 30% discount on all weddings and portrait bookings this summer!! Hurry and jump on this special as it
ends August 1, and my full prices will be in effect from that time on.
Portraits ~ Book your session by August 1, 2008 and you will get a 30% discount off whatever package you choose. This discount applies to the package price only, and not to prints and products purchased in addition to the portrait package. Contact me if you have questions or want to book soon! ALL sessions must be booked by August 1 and completed by August 31 for the discount to apply.**

** Bookings are limited to availability so book soon to ensure an available date!

May Blog Contest
(this is the first of many CHP blog contests to come so stay tuned for more fun this summer!)
This month I am offering a FREE portrait session* to a random local commenter this month. On May 25th (Memorial Day Weekend as well as my 5th anniversary weekend), I will be choosing a random commenter from this blog post to receive a FREE session! So check out my new websites and head back here and let me know what you think, what you like, what you don’t like :), to just say hey! or be the one to tell me what residents of Phoenix call themselves (Phoenix-onians? Phoenicians? Phoenix-ites?) and you may be the lucky commenter of the month! On the 25th, I will write out the number of comments on pieces of paper, and will randomly draw the number of the winning commenter, and announce it on this blog.
* The free session is for the CHP Digital Package which includes one full portrait session and a CD of full resolution digital files with personal printing release. Contact me if you have questions or would like a full 2008 price list.
