Phoenix, AZ Area Photographer


Thank you for taking the time to see my work. My hope is that you can catch a glimpse of my passion for seeing your family’s story and capturing life’s greatest memories.


Having pictures has always been an important part of my life. My daughters have always nicknamed me “Mamarazzi.” In my years of experience, who knew that I would capture the greatest memories and even the last moments together of families.  That’s why I am called “Memories by Candace.” I love to capture those memories. When working with me, I hope you see my passion. The biggest compliment I can receive is a referral.
