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.

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

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 🙂
