Arizona Wedding-Boudoir-High School Senior-Photographer » I'm Stacy Kokes, and I photograph love...

Eeeeekkkk! I’m SO excited about this engagement session. Kelly and I have been friends since freshman year of college. We have seen each other through all different stages of life and now I have the pleasure of being her wedding photographer! Kelly and Nathan live in the great city of San Francisco. I was more than thrilled when they asked me to come to their neck of the woods for the engagement session. Yes please! The two of them really wanted to incorporate the variety that San Francisco has to offer. We started off at Pier 1 with the Bay Bridge as our backdrop with the sun shining upon us. In true San Francisco form, not 30 minutes later the fog rolled in, the wind picked up and the temperature dropped like crazy! Kelly & Nathan were such troopers and braved the wind and chill like champs. Our next stop was one of their favorite parks where they set up an awesome picnic scene and finally we ended up at Baker Beach to end the night.

Kelly+Nathan, thank you for sharing your city and your love with me. I had so much fun. I am SO honored and blessed that you chose me as your wedding photographer and can’t wait for the big day next July! Love you <3

Abbi + Chris were my first session back since taking time off to spend with our new daughter. It felt so good to get behind my camera once again and I couldn’t have asked for a better couple to kick off my ‘return’ with! We all braved the AZ heat and desert to capture these great moments between an amazing couple. Can’t wait to document their big day this spring!

For over a year, Joe and I have been in the adoption process. It has been full of twists and turns, but our prayers were finally answered when we welcomed our daughter, Bella Rose, into our family on July 2, 2013. We are over the moon!

Meet my new family <3. Huge thanks to Brittany Janelle Photography for capturing our first family photos!

“So when a friend is trying to explain to someone about how Christ loves the church they can say, ‘Do you know Maggie + Travis? Let’s go to their house for dinner. You see the way they love each other? That’s how Christ loves the church.’ So you see, this marriage you are entering into today is about so much more than just the two of you. It is a picture to the world of how Christ loves us.” (words spoken at Maggie+Travis’s ceremony, paraphrased)

This sums up the way that Maggie + Travis love. They love because God first loved us, and their marriage points to that great love. Such depth, such beauty, such joy flooded their wedding day. What an honor it was to be a witness to that! Congrats to the new Mr + Mrs Currier!! We adore you two and are so excited to see how the Lord uses your marriage to bring glory and honor to Him!

xo, Stacy & Joe

Mama + Daughter moment. LOVE!

First looks are still my fave <3

The cutest cake topper ever!

He wrapped his arms around her and drew her in close. She giggled as he whispered something in her ear for her alone to hear. The shade of the green trees surrounded them as they basked in their first moments as husband and wife. They beamed with love and adoration, soaking in what had just occurred hours earlier.

Alecia + Scott’s wedding was simply breathtaking. From the 1800s mansion they celebrated in, to the ornate church they said “I do” in. Their 1940s theme was seen throughout their entire day, from her vintage style dress to the vintage car they rode in. The wedding can together beautifully.

It was an honor to be a part of. Congrats again, Alecia + Scott. Sending my love! xo, Stacy Kokes

In lue of a first look, they wrote cards for one another that they read prior to the ceremony.

The ceremony took place at the beautiful Christ King Church of Wauwatosa

These two are so picturesque

They had SUCH a fun wedding party. They were up for all of my crazy, silly ideas :)

Look at all that green. Be still my heart!
