Sarah + David’s Whimsical Windmill Winery Wedding

Posted on March 26th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Sarah had expressed a week out from her wedding that she was worried it was going to rain.  After lots of hoping and wishing….. it still rained .  She was of course as any bride would be completely stressed out about this taking place on her wedding day.  We on the other hand weren’t worried at all!

Actually the idea of the challenge and creativity thoughts that came rushing to our head had us so excited, so know matter what the outcome we where ready to rock it!  The day ended up being absolutely perfect.  The wind kicked up and gave Sarah quite a challenge as she approached David during the first look.  Wind has a strange way of either totally running a shot or adding such an amazingly ridiculous flair that can really make a photo killer.

Well as you could see by our favorite images below in this post we couldn’t be more happier with how the wind behaved!  Here are our favorites from the Windmill Winery wedding shot spring wedding season 2014.

Paul + Hayley – Wedding at The Boulders Carefree Arizona

Posted on March 15th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Having never had the opportunity to shoot at the Boulders yet we where pretty excited to capture up all the amazing views and gorgeous landscape.  In true Janke form we drug these two all over the property to catch just the right light and we did our best to make sure we miss any back drop!

Good thing for Paul and Hayley that they where well seasoned with our antics and came prepared for our creativity!  There where so many breath taking colors and gorgeous settings that I literally created new presets inspired by this setting.  One of which I named “Magical Desert”  hee hee!

Although it took a bit to comb through all the portraits of these two that where just fantastic we narrowed it down.  Please take a moment to browse through our favs from Paul and Hayley’s gorgeous wedding day at The Boulders in Carefree, AZ.

This was our first time shooting at wedding at Sassi in North Scottsdale.  What a gorgeous place and don’t even get me started about the pasta!  Seriously amazing.  Ok onto the beautiful wedding of Jon and Lindsey.  Day of was our first time meeting these two and they where as laid back and relaxed as they seemed on our phone calls.

We where so excited to get the opportunity to shoot  a Botanical Garden wedding and I almost lost it when I found out that they where going to have a Chihuly Installation the date that their wedding was taking place.  For those of you that aren’t aware of the amazing talents of  DALE CHIHULY he is truly missing out.  He does amazing glass art pieces that will ooooh and awee you and leave you staring as the light changes on each peice.

Ok enough about him.  This is Jessie and John, they had such a gorgeous and sweet wedding and as you can see where pretty easy to photograph.  Take a peak at some of our favorites of their gorgeous day!
