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

The sunlight danced through the rows of trees that lined the quaint road leading into Foxboro Ranch on the afternoon of October 11th. Leslie beamed as she slipped into her gorgeous mermaid gown. Meanwhile, Tristan was calm as can be as he hung with his best buddies just down the hall. Their day was full of amazing details, gorgeous surroundings and a beautiful love story. I was honored to be the one to capture their love story! Special thanks to Sadie Such for second shooting with me.

Congrats Leslie+Tristan. I LOVED being your wedding photographer!!!

Jessica+Matt got engaged just a couple weeks ago and already they have most of their wedding planned. Can we say rock stars?! But that’s just how they roll! They will be tying the knot in just a few months on January 25th; just a year and a day after they became a couple. These two are just adorable together! I am so glad that they picked me to document this amazing time in their lives. Stay tuned for their wedding photos in a few months. Until then…enjoy their engagement sesh <3


Okay. Stop it! Jessica, you are GORGE!

One of my faves. For sure!


Stud. Muffin. Matt!

The clouds rolled in on the morning of August 24th; a rare sight in the midst of an Arizona summer. Alicia and Jeremy anxiously and nervously got ready wondering if the rain would hold out long enough to say their outdoor “I dos”. What was potentially a cause for concern ended up being a tremendous blessing. The clouds shielded the lovely couple and their guests from the intense summer sun and created the most breathtaking backdrop. And yes, the rain did stay away just as planned! In fact, it didn’t start raining until the moment I got into my car to drive home. I smiled to myself as I thought, “God’s hand is definitely upon this day!” Watching these two basking in their wedded bliss brought joy to my heart and I was blessed to be the one to capture it for them to look back on for a lifetime.

Jeremy+Alicia, THANK YOU for letting me into your lives and allowing me to tell your love story through my lens. It was such a joy! Congrats on your new life together as husband and wife. Always remember the words you wrote to one another in the letters you exchanged. I may not know what was said, but I know that keeping those words close to your hearts will do wonders for your marriage. Cheers to this next chapter in your lives! xo, Stacy

Reading the letters they wrote for one another. Lots of tears!

Look at these two cuties!

First look <3

Photographing these two was like photographing a model couple! SO beautiful and SO full of love <3

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
