Joe and Ellen’s 10 Years of Marriage @ Salt River

July 15, 2017


“I love her selflessness, and her heart for God & people. I love the way she brings out the goofy in me!” [Joe]

“I love his generous heart and that he gives all of himself to his family and friends. I love that he loves the Lord and leads the kids and I in a way that reflects his relationship with God. I love that he knows how to calm me. He’s gentle and loving, and always seems to know what I’m thinking!”  [Ellen]

Joe and Ellen are celebrating TEN YEARS of marriage this month! Wow! They wanted to celebrate their milestone with an anniversary photoshoot, because let’s be honest, once life and kids hit, photos of just you & your forever are rare! I was so excited for weeks leading up to it because they are the cutest couple and have so much fun together! We ventured out to a gorgeous area near Salt River, and it was pure MAGIC! The lighting, this lively couple, and the desert oasis vibes had my photographer heart eyes going wild! It was such a joy to spend the evening with them, reminiscing on all sorts of stories from over their years of dating, being newlyweds, and becoming parents. I was so honored to capture these special images for them!
