LAUREN + HARTLEY | backyard wedding, Arizona

May 16, 2020

It’s always fun working with/around/near Jennifer Griffith, owner of Griffith Imaging. It’s a little funny, because I don’t see her in the typical light that she’s used to (being an absolutely dynamite photographer. Check her Instagram out HERE), because when I met her I was just a wee babe in college. I think it was my sophomore year + I found her on instagram saying “if you ever need a model, I’d love to be considered” or something very naive of the sorts, haha! Fast forward a few weeks + there I was in a pair of Free People grungies surrounded by arboretum cacti with nothing but a hat to cover my upper frontal region. From there on out, I fell in love! Jen became so much more to me than just a photographer. I played with her kids, I watched her go through some relationship changes, I watched her business skyrocket into the amazingness that it is today, she became a best friend, listener, advice giver, second Mom, second sister, personal cheerleader in all the best ways possible.

Anyways, Jen doesn’t normally photograph weddings as her expertise lies in fashion, commercial + hella editorial goodness so when she asked me to second shoot for her I OBVIOUSLY said hell yes! These are a few of my favorite images from this day. The things I would do to go back to this day + everyday I got to work with Jen… scary. I would do a lot, haha.
