Bonnie & Jeremy had a beautiful wedding in a friend’s backyard in Scottsdale. It was elegant with a touch of rustic. I loved their location choice for their first look and portraits and will be exploring it in the future! A good backdrop around every corner. The reception was all fun and games with a giant game of jenga, corn hole and a photo booth.
It was a relaxed atmosphere with a more intimate feel. Bonnie was stunning in a dress that had some va-va-voom! Such a beautiful day for a beautiful couple! Congratulations to you both!
What a lovely family! We spent the afternoon/evening with the Janecek family in the Havasu Foothills where they live. When I first spoke with Janessa about her vision for the shoot, she mentioned she wanted the raw desert as the backdrop. It’s amazing how many portrait shoot requests I receive with a location request of grass, trees, greenery etc. When you live in the desert southwest this can be a tall order. I love that they embrace the beauty of where they live.
We had a great time chasing around the kids. We try and get a few of the traditional portraits in, but mostly spend our time letting the kids be kids. In this case, that meant placing a rock on your brothers head and searching for the best sticks. These are how memories are made!
This wedding was the best party I’ve been to in a long time! I had the pleasure of photographing this wedding just down the street from my home. The strip of Colorado River I call home is known for its beauty, water recreation and parties. This was a fun group from the very start as you can tell.
It wasn’t far from this location that James proposed to Sarah. They’ve been vacationing here for years so it was fitting they start their marriage here. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, a better sunset.
We were so excited when we arrived to the venue for Ashley & Cameron’s wedding! Within minutes of walking in the door, the kids were asking us if we had see the secret rooms yet! It was all hidden doors and passageways. It was hard to believe the Chateau de Vie is nestled right in Chandler, Arizona!
Ashley was such a beautiful bride and I wanted to take a portrait of her in every single room of the venue. The bridal party and family were such troopers when it came to portraits since it was quite the humid day! With a beautiful venue like this though, taking photos inside was easy.
