John + Nicole – Phoenix Backyard Wedding

Posted on December 15th, by admin in blog, weddings. 1 Comment

You gotta love the kick back, relaxed and fun atmosphere of a backyard wedding!  Nothing like having all your closest friends and family surround you to celebrate your wedding day and be totally free in your own environment.

We never got a chance to meet John and Nicole before their wedding day but the second we got there, everyone treated us like close friends.  Capturing the real moments of their day was so easy and natural.  Nicole you where a drop dead gorgeous bride and I think we could all tell from the reaction on John’s face when he first saw you, he agreed!

It really was a true honor to be chosen to capture your wedding day as your love story seems very unique and genuine!

Please browse through some of our favs from Johnny and Nicole’s wedding day.



Antonio + Mojdeh Wedding at The Keirland Scottsdale Arizona

Posted on December 11th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Making new friends is probably our favorite thing about our job, and with these two we feel we’ve made life long friends.  Not only are these two just great genuine people, they just so happen to be thoughtful, caring and totally in love.  Which when all put together makes for one spectacular couple to photograph.  Oh and Mojdeh, remember when you said you where so not photogenic……..umm we beg to differ!

The Keirland in Scottsdale was the setting for this gorgeous story tale day.  With all their closest family and friends surrounding the photos tell their story.  Look through some of our favorites and feel free to get inspired and smile 🙂

Renee + Ryan – Love is Sweet but these 2 are sweeter

Posted on November 30th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Renee I love your smile, you probably already know that since both Jeff and myself kept clicking away the second you’d flash your pearly whites!  Photographing you and Ryan was such a breeze!  Thank you for trusting us and venturing off into the wild with the goats as we found our new favorite portrait location for Green Gables.

We have had such a whirlwind of weddings these past 30 days and it was nice to go back to a wedding that was a month ago and remember how peaceful and relaxed you both were.  Seriously way way way more than any other couple, you guys truly seemed like you enjoyed every moment of your wedding day!

There where about 300 but we tried our very best to narrow down our favs so we wouldn’t crash our servers 🙂

Jenna + Mike – London Bridge Resort Wedding

Posted on November 14th, by admin in blog, weddings. 1 Comment

This was the first time Jeff and I chose to take a wedding on our anniversary.  And looking back, we’re really glad we did!  It’s so cool to watch someone go through their wedding day step by step and get to be a part of it, let alone share the same special date as them!

I met Jenna that morning to get some footage of her running with her dad (you’ll get to see that in their video coming soon) but it was so sweet, and she had such a calm demeaner it was really nice to see.

We had a great time getting creative with this gorgeous group!  With one of the last warm weddings of 2013 I think we did pretty good!  Check out some of our favorites and be sure to check back to see their super beautiful wedding film which is right around the corner 🙂

Heaven + Alan – Arizona Backyard Wedding

Posted on November 6th, by admin in blog, weddings. No Comments

Heaven and Alan if you only knew just how much fun we had capturing your day!  Being a wedding photographer is super fun I’m not going to lie, and when  you get an adorable couple that just shines in front of your camera you can’t help but shoot away!  And that we did, this being the wedding that holds the records for most clicks I’ve ever taken personally.

Heaven and Alan had such sweet and unique details it really put their wedding in a genre of it’s own.  Hence my title, sweet, intimate, fun, creative and full of love!  Heaven you are such a knock out and simply lovely!  And Alan as I recall your words “that you had no idea how to pose”, well Mr. Como you killed it!  I went a little nuts when choosing my favorites as I just couldn’t help but share all the moments and fabulous events that took place.  I really wanted to give our blog readers the feeling of what it was like to stand under those lit up umbrellas (that just might be the coolest lighting detail I’ve ever seen) and dance with all your family and friends!

Thank you to you and your … Read More »

Angela and Daniel – Arizona Snowbowl Wedding Flagstaff

Posted on September 5th, by admin in blog, weddings. 1 Comment

talk about a gorgeous setting, these two really picked maybe on of my favorite spots I’ve seen to have their wedding take place.    I’ve never really been much of a beach girl and the mountains and their vast views where extremely breath taking.  Brandon and I plenty of creative inspiration for all of their portraits.  Actually we had an over load!

To date Angela and Daniels first look photos are my favorite. Such an amazing open view for such a sweet moment!  Take a moment to view all of our favorites from Angela and Daniels gorgeous Arizona Snowbowl Wedding in Flagstaff Arizona.
