Lara and Tony – Wedding Augusta Pines Houston Texas

Posted on September 14th, by admin in Uncategorized, weddings. 2 comments

Myself, John and Brandon started our weekend at LAX preparing to head to Texas for our Destination wedding in Houston where we would be capturing Tony and Lara’s wedding!  They invited us to their rehearsal dinner where we had a chance to meet all their closest friends and family and get to know the bridal party a bit which was really nice, as typically we don’t get to meet everyone until the day of.  They really made us feel special as everyone had pretty much already heard of us!

Their wedding day was so easy going, all the details put together so well and picked perfectly for them.  The ceremony held at  Christ Catholic United Methodist in the Woodlands, which was gorgeous and provided lots of great photo opportunities.  When we saw the reception site at Augusta Pines we where in awe.  What a gorgeous venue for an elegant party.  I saw the spiral stair case and melted because I knew what photo I wanted to obtain that night and I got it.

The pictures show how much fun these two had on their wedding night and I have to say this entire group of wedding guests really knew how to party! … Read More »

Patricia and Richard – Wedding Hualapai Mountains AZ

Posted on September 11th, by admin in blog, weddings. 1 Comment

These two are no strangers to our blog, if you’ve been following our work then you’ve definetly seen them on our site and in our ads.  You could say that team JJP hearts them!  Jeff, Brandon and I shot their wedding on a partly cloudly day here in Arizona, this was our first August wedding here in Mohave County in well……ever!  Typically you don’t even want to go outside in August let alone shoot in it, however the overly hot days took a break to let in light showers which dusted ground to keep the mountainous terrain magical and the 5k+ elevation of the Hualapai Mountain range sure does help.

I have to note that the second the ceremony completed the rain kicked up sending everyone into the covered reception area, it was so incredible the timing, what a way to get people to move!  I love a simple wedding with sweet details, close family and friends and lots of laughter.  There where tons and tons of truly amazing photos to share of this campfire inspired wedding (they even gave out smores as their favors)  I mean how cool is this couple!  Patricia and Richard thank you for choosing us, it … Read More »

Corrina and Jeremy – Wedding Red Setter Inn Greer Arizona

Posted on July 19th, by admin in blog, weddings. 1 Comment

So when we booked these two we had no idea where Greer AZ was.  Turns out it’s a ridiculously gorgeous drive through green desert landscape into literally a forest which in itself is pretty rare in Arizona.  When we arrived at the Red Setter Inn we where greeted by Corrina and Jeremey’s family right away who where all the sweetest and most accomodating people ever.  I love these close knit families that all get into it and take part of the whole day.  Corrina and Jeremy had the who lodge to themselves which was fantastic, know other people poking about to get in the way, and full freedom to do what we want and take pictures where we want! Needles to say we loved it…

Corrina and Jeremy had tons of amazing details which you see in the pics below and incorporated their children into the whole theme of things!  We really had a blast with their whole group and enjoyed getting the opportunity to photograph them.

Please look through our favorites of Corrina and Jeremy’s mountain rustic Greer Arizona wedding and enjoy 🙂

Denise and Joe – Wedding Four Seasons Scottsdale Arizona

Posted on July 13th, by admin in blog, weddings. 3 comments

Everything about us meeting Denise and all the strange coincidentals that exist between herself and Jeff is enough for an interesting blog post.  I won’t get too far into that for this, as this blog post is to share some of our favorite images from their gorgeous day!  Denise and Joe have been long time (well their whole lives) NeW Yorkers who count their days till they get to spend the rest of their lives together in their spectacular Scottsdale home.

We absolutely loved the feel and idea behind their whole day.  Denise and Joe really put so much heart into all their planning, the succulants which adorned the tables and floral arrangements, the small and intimate dinner party for only their closest friends and family (who ALL flew in from NYC) and I can’t forget to mention the String Quartet who played a custom play list of todays hits in their own versions.  Every detail was so gorgeous we just couldn’t get over it and had such a wonderful day getting to know them!

This being our first Four Seasons wedding we where running around with all sorts of ideas it was actually tough to hone in on just a few. … Read More »

Caleb and Heidi – Wedding Point Ferman Lighthouse

Posted on June 26th, by admin in blog, weddings. 5 comments

Getting the honor to shoot couples in love is just so rewarding.  Getting to shoot a colorful, bright vibrant wedding filled with cheer and love is even better!  Caleb and Heidi where both extremely natural when it comes to being in front of the camera.  They both photographed so easy, and had no problem giving each other that I love you stare, that is so incredibly intense in photos.  There ceremony was so sweet and caring and for the first time ever in over 100 weddings I got to see a groom serenade his bride… sweet it was.

The lighting was gorgeous, the setting and people where warm and genuine, and I truly felt blessed to be photographing their biggest day yet!

Check out some of my favorite photos from Caleb and Heidi’s wedding day.

Cherise and Cory – Refuge Wedding Lake Havasu City AZ

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

One pretty darn warm summer day here in Lake Havasu we had the privilege of photographing Cherise and Cory’s wedding.  The day was just as gorgeous as it was hot, everything went smoothly.  Cherise and her girls all looked beautiful, while the boys didn’t look too bad themselves!  Did I mention it was hot?  Their ceremony was so sweet and incorporated some really unique elements with their family members playing important roles throughout it.  These two where totally adorable and really kept everything sweet and simple.  They where both completely relaxed and seemed to enjoy every minute of their day!

Please take a look at some of our pics from Cherise and Cory’s Summertime Wedding in Hot Hot Lake Havasu City Arizona at the Refuge Golf and Country Club.
