Nikki and Calvin’s Shooting Range Gender Reveal

We love Nikki & Calvin! Their shooting range gender reveal recently went down in the Arizona desert.

They truly are beautiful humans. And they roll with an awesome crew! We have known Nikki & Calvin for many years. In fact, Nikki helped us photograph many, many weddings, from Hawaii to Colorado to all over Arizona. You might even remember seeing her at a wedding show or two back in the day! We’re stoked they’re having a girl!

Scroll on to check out a few highlights from their late morning celebration in the beautiful Arizona desert.

Craig & Maria | A Maricopa, Arizona, Wedding

Craig & Maria’s Maricopa, Arizona, wedding was a beautiful celebration of family, life, and love! They chose to say their vows in front of family and close friends in the private Province community. Craig & Maria both work for Katie Souza Ministries and work, in particular with prison outreach. They have hearts for the broken and hearts for restoration. And their hearts are beautiful! Another mentor, and friend, Patricia King, of Patricia King Ministries, officiated their ceremony. The day so well represented the simple truth that love never fails … And, when we think about Craig & Maria, they represent that truth so well themselves!

Taliesin West Wedding | Arizona-California Wedding Photographer

What an honor to photograph Daphne & Michael’s Taliesin West wedding in Scottsdale, Arizona. Never heard of Taliesin West, you say? Well, here’s the skinny! Not only was Taliesin West Frank Lloyd Wright’s winter home and “desert laboratory” from the late 1930s until his death in 1959, but currently it is home to the School of Architecture at Taliesin and the Frank Lloyd Wright Foundation. But far more important that all that jazz? It’s a favorite location for Daphne & Michael, one of their earliest dates … and the perfect spot for an intimate wedding!

Daphne & Michael chose to share their vows in front of a great group of family and friends. A phenomenal group of humans, a fine selection of humanitarians, intellectuals, old school punk rockers, and even two Nobel Prize nominees. Awesome!

Tattooed, Rock ‘n’ Roll Grove Wedding | Sadie & Jon

Sadie & Jon’s tattooed, rock ‘n’ roll grove wedding was, quite simply … awesome: former bandmates, good friends, family, and a celebration of love … and life! The day began at Legacy Golf Resort, where everyone met up to get ready. Savante Salon took care of the ladies, while the guys dialed it in a nearby room. From there, they headed over to an Arizona grove, Venue at the Grove (to be precise … and for their final touches, ceremony, and celebration).

WPPI PHOTO WALK 2018 || A GROOM GETTING READY

We held our WPPI photo walk 2018 at the Mandalay Bay Resort and Casino in late February. “Up Your Getting Ready Game, In the Most Rad Way!” was it’s name and photographing a groom getting ready was the game! Since we wanted to make the photo walk as real as possible, we held it in an actual hotel suite and brought in the impeccably classy Ryan Wagner of Bespoke Edge as our groom/model. (Btw, when you have a few minutes, and any time you need some solid style tips, check out Ryan on Bespoke Edge’s YouTube Channel!)

Our WPPI Photo Walk 2018

After getting to know one another for a bit, we walked our fellow photographers/participants through a few of the more common situations that we come across when photographing a groom getting ready in a hotel suite: photographing a groom’s details, a groom in the shower, a groom shaving, a groom getting dressed (buttoning a shirt, tying a tie or bow tie, putting on shoes, etc.). And we also gave a few hints on how to photograph details and a “getting ready sequence” quickly when you are strapped for time.

Our WPPI Photo Walk 2018: The “Tools” & the Photographs

We’re never too far from a prism, and we talked about a few other tools that are indispensable for us on a wedding day, esp. when we find ourselves photographing grooms in hotel rooms. Enter: MagMod and Tether Tools. MagMod’s modifiers allow us to shape and direct light in multiple ways (and we find the MagGrid and MagSphere particularly useful). As well, TetherTools grips and clamps are always useful, esp. the PowrGrip for the shower and the RapidMount for the walls. If you attended our photo walk live and in person, we dropped lots of tricks and tips … as well as camera settings. If you have any questions about any of the photographs here, hit us up! Instagram or email (BeRad@sunshineandreign.com) is best!

Our WPPI Photo Walk 2018: The Sponsors

Our photo walk wouldn’t have been nearly what is was without the support of our awesome sponsors! SLR Lounge, MagMod, and Tether Tools, along with A & M Film and Photo, Cecilia (check out our review of Cecilia’s straps here), JPEGmini, and Tenba, supported our trip and let loose on some serious swag for our participants!
