Megan & Matt's Sedona Engagement Session

Megan & Matt's Sedona Engagement Session

We had so much fun exploring the red rocks with this awesome power couple and their sweet little Lucy, at their Sedona engagement session! 

Megan and Matt are two of the most laid back people we have ever met. They are kind and whitty and seriously in love. We spent almost an entire day with them in Sedona and it just felt like we were old friends. We are so excited to be sharing their engagement photos, because these two are getting married TODAY!! We are just headed out the door to shoot their big day, but we wanted to take a moment and reminisce about this wonderful time in their lives, as it comes to a close and they walk into a new phase of life as husband and wife. We are SO excited for you Megan and Matt! It's an honor to be a part of your story! 

Hugs, 

Betsy & John

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

When Jane and Blair told us they were eloping and wanted to book us for a photo session to celebrate, we were so excited! Not only are these two model material, but they have a sweet, gentle love for each other that really shines through their images. We strolled along dirt paths, surrounded by grassy fields of mesquite trees. He held her hand and looked at her adoringly as they carefully walked through the thick grass. A long week of rainy days preceded their session, so the once deserty landscape was lush and beautiful. Jane & Blair were quiet and pensive, but so connected even in silence. It was a cool day and the clouds hung low, but peeked out just in time to give us those gorgeous golden hour portraits that we can't live without. It was such a stunning day to celebrate marriage! We feel so honored when couples choose us to document their wedding days and this instance is no different. Big or small, every wedding day is just as special as the next. Congratulations Jane & Blair!!

XO, Betsy & John

Alyssa & Dave's Tucson Desert Engagement Session

Alyssa & Dave's Tucson Desert Engagement Session

We had so much fun with Alyssa & Dave at their gorgeous Tucson desert engagement session! Can you believe these glowy desert veiws?

This couple is so sweet and a match made in heaven. They are both mellow and kind with a crazy love for each other. Dave was so sweet and gentle with his bride to be, we just know that he is going to make an incredible husband! Alyssa & Dave both live in San Fransisco, so we met up with them while we were there shooting a wedding a few months back. They looked so cute and we were SO excited to be shooting an engagement session in the bay area! Unfortunately, the weather had other plans for the day, because it was super gloomy and crazy windy (like so many days in the bay area!) We got a handful of super cute shots, but it was not what any of us had in mind! When A & D were back in Tucson a few months later, we convinced them to meet up for a mini desert engagement session to show off their Tucson roots. We are SO glad they agreed, because look at this gorgeous, sunny desert! Tucson was showing off for this one and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. 

We have been anxiously awaiting Alyssa & Dave's big day at the gorgeous Tubac Golf resort (which is our all time favorite venue to shoot at) and it's finally here! We are working with an incredible team of vendors and we are ready to capture this wonderful day for this amazing couple. Congratulations Alyssa & Dave! Thank you for inviting to be a part of your big day. We adore you two!! Thanks for tuning in friends. Hope everyone has an incredible weekend!

Hugs,

Betsy & John

Looking Back on Our Wedding Day

Looking Back on Our Wedding Day

We can't believe it's already been three years since we said "I do", surrounded by family and friends  at our backyard wedding in Tucson, Arizona.

Our wedding day was so special, you guys. We have a group of wonderful family and friends who surrounded us with love and made our backyard wedding something that we would never forget. It was spring time in Tucson, the wildflowers were in full bloom and like most things in our life, we envisioned a wedding day that was colorful and full of joy. It was such a blessing to get married in Betsy's parent's backyard. We did everything ourselves, with the help of our very patient friends and family. We had very little experience with weddings at this point, but by the grace of God, everything came together beautifully. Though trends have changed and our personal style has evolved, we wouldn't change a thing, even if we could.  

It was March 15, 2014 and we had only shot a handful of weddings at that point. We had just discovered the resurgence of film photography and absolutely fell in love with the look and feel of it. We found Constance Higley (who unfortunately doesn't offer wedding photography anymore) and knew she would be the perfect fit for our big day. Our wedding put a spark in our hearts for documenting love stories. Its been an incredible journey and we can only hope that our clients love and appreciate their wedding photos as much as we do our own. We hope you enjoy this tiny glimpse into the start of our life together. Thanks for sharing in our joy, friends. 

With love, 

Betsy & John

Jana & Michael Tubac Golf Resort Wedding

Jana & Michael Tubac Golf Resort Wedding

Jana and Michael had an absolutely stunning navy and white, black tie wedding at Tubac Golf Resort and we feel so honored to be their wedding photographers! 

It was a cloudy February day at Tubac Golf Resort, but our bride Jana wasn't shaken or stressed, she was just excited to see her guy and start their journey as husband and wife. There was a smell of fresh cut grass and desert rain in the air, but as the day crept on the sun broke through the clouds to shine down on Jana and Michael on their wedding day. The day was filled with gorgeous cactus themed details by Brie Dumais Designs that fit perfectly with the greens and white of the gorgeous bouquets that Katie from Posh Petals created! The bride donned a stunning, simple, white Pronovias gown from Gigi's Bridal and her bridesmaids wore stunning floor length navy blue dresses. Across the resort, the groom was anxiously awaiting his first look at his gorgeous bride. The guys were decked out in crisp black tuxedos and black cowboy boots, perfect attire for an elegant wedding at Tubac Golf Resort. Jana and Michael got married in the chapel at Tubac Golf Resort, which is a romantic space, dimly lit by towering chandeliers and beams of sunlight peeking through the windows. The large wooden door and white hacienda style chapel is the absolute perfect spot for bridal and wedding party photos. After photos at the chapel, we headed to the golf course, which boasts pretty incredible mountain veiws with beautiful grass nad tall trees that Tucsonans don't get to see very often! The party continued in the gorgeous reception space that was filled with candles and gorgeous table settings drapede in greenery. The entire day was absolutely lovely and we feel so blessed so to be Jana and Michaels wedding photographers! 

Thanks for veiwing this gorgeous Tubac wedding! 

Hugs,

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany had the most stunning bohemian desert anniversary session ever! It was inspired by Tucson and it didn't disappoint! Smoke bombs, gorgeous florals and smoke bombs. Interested yet?

When Mike and Brittany asked us about doing an anniversary session, we just knew it was going to be incredible. These two are sweet, mellow and fashionable musicians with a crazy mad love for each other. Mike and Brittany met at a music conference as teenagers, had a whirlwind romance and tied the knot a short time later. Since getting married, they moved to Tucson, an Arizona desert town, deeply rooted in a culture of music and art. Mike and Brittany fell in love with the culture and community they found in Tucson. They just celebrated 8 years of being married and wanted to create a shoot that represented not only their love for each other, but the rich connection they have established with their little desert town. We created a shoot for them that was inspired by the southwest desert, filled with eclectic, geometric details and just gushing with romance.

We feel so blessed that this gorgeous session was featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Boho Blu- Elegant Bohemian Wedding Day Inspiration

Dreamy Indigo desert wedding at Tohono Chul Gardens with the Soiree Girls! 

It was such an honor to team up with incredible wedding planners Jenn and Akiko from Soiree girls for this styled shoot! These gals are bohemian geniuses and created a shoot that is elegant and whimsical all at the same time. For this shoot, we wanted to create an elegant boho soiree that was inspired by rich earthy tones like indigo blues and desert greens, with touches of gold and natural stone details. Our shoot took place at the gorgeous Tohono Chul Gardens, a lush green hidden oasis in the desert. It is the perfect spot for an intimate vow renewal or wedding and has so many gorgeous spots for photos! Betsy Dunlap created a stunning hand calligraphed invitation suit and place cards for us that set a dreamy tone for the gorgeous indigo table settings that the Soiree girls created! For couples trying to achieve this look, we encourage them to be really intentional in choosing a venue that they love. We adore this sweet and simple garden setting because it enhanced the intimate feel of our bohemian soiree without requiring any additional décor. The Ohhh Booth (a vintage volkswagen bus converted into a photo booth) made an appearance that has everyone swooning! We love the Ohhh Booth, because it is such a great alternative option for couples who want a photo booth, with a little bit of extra wow factor. It was an incredible experience working with such talented vendors! We love styled shoots because it gives us an opportunity for us an other vendors to express themselves creatively. A huge thanks to our models who stepped in last minute and saved the day! Thanks for checking out this collaboration friends! Want to see more? Check out the feature on 100 Layer Cake!

Navy & Salmon Stardance Barn Wedding in Tucson

Navy & Salmon Stardance Barn Wedding in Tucson

Hannah & Mike had a stunning Tucson summer wedding with vibrant hues and incredible desert and mountain views. 

It was a warm summer day in Tucson and the sun was shining bright on Hannah & Mike's wedding day! Spirits were high and everyone was totally joyful. We could not have asked for better clients, seriously. If you haven't been to Stardance in Tucson, this place is lovely. It's one of Tucson's only barn venues and it's surrounded by some pretty incredible desert veiws. (If you've been following us for any time at all, you know we have an obsession with the desert!) The day was lovely and not even the scorching Tucson heat could kill the good vibes that day! 

Congratulations Hannah & Mike! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day. 

Hugs, Betsy &John

Jasmin and Jon had a stunning, elegant blush tone wedding with incredible views of the Superstiton Mountains at Superstition Mountain Country Club

Jon and Jasmin are a super sweet and mellow couple. They are all around good people and kind to everyone around them. They are fun, funny and pretty awesome dancers too! We had a blast capturing their elegant Superstition Mountain Country Club wedding. If you haven't been to the Superstition Mountain Country Club, it's just stunning. There is nothing else like it in the Phoenix area! The ceremony takes place on a lush green lawn, looking out over some incredible views of the Superstition Mountains. The grounds are elegant and the architecture is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. Every wall is covered in vines and it's as if you step into a different world when you arrive. The reception was a true party under the stars, dimly lit with the glow of cafe lights. We are so thankful that Jasmin and Jon chose us as their wedding photographers. Thanks for checking out Jasmin and Jon's beautiful Phoenix wedding! 

Hugs, Betsy & John

Snap Lovely is now Betsy and John

Snap Lovely is now Betsy and John

Hey guys, we are so excited to finally announce some news that we have been holding in for MONTHS. Snap Lovely photography is now Betsy and John! We have been quietly working on our new brand and can't tell you how excited we are to share this new journey with you! 

2015 was a huge for us. What started out as confusion and defeat, ended with inspiration and encouragement. We went through so many personal changes and our business grew more than we ever anticipated. What started out as a hobby for us, turned into something so much more. Photography is intertwined with the very core of who we are. We started to find our voice and develop a style that we really felt was our own. Though we still loved the name, Snap Lovely just didn't fit who we were anymore. After two years of working together and learning from each other, the very core of our business is us, Betsy and John. After a business mentoring session with our friends Amy & Jordan, we decided that it was time for a change. Over the last few months, we've been reworking a lot of things, creating a new website and finalizing lots of little details to make this all possible. We are so excited to turn over a new leaf in our business and we hope that you will join us on this journey! Thanks so much for all your encouragement and love!

Allison & Dave Van Dickson Ranch Wedding

Allison & Dave Van Dickson Ranch Wedding

Allison and Dave are two of the most down to earth people we have ever met. The first time we hung out with them, we knew we wanted to be friends with these two. They are kind, generous and super genuine, definitely our kind of people. They made us feel like friends at their wedding and it was clear that they gave everyone the warm fuzzies that they give us. Allison and Dave had a stunning wedding at Van Dickson Ranch in Prescott, Arizona. The day started out with some gloomy looking clouds in the sky, but the sun peeked out just in time to watch Allison walk down the aisle to her groom. During the ceremony, they were joined by a pair of wild horses, which is pretty much an epic transition into the first kiss. Dave's sister made all the floral elements of the day, from the bouqets and boutonnieres to the stunning aisle decorations. The day was amazing, full of laughter and fun, surrounded by incredible people.
