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).

A Tattooed, Rock ‘n’ Roll Grove Wedding … (Venue at the Grove)

We absolutely love Sadie & Jon, and we totally fell in love with their crew and family. They’re all such amazing humans! Love them!! And Venue at the Grove was the perfect wedding venue for them. The weather was perfect, and there was plenty of room to party! Yeah! So let’s do this!

Scroll on for some photographic highlights, friends! Final touches? Done! Ceremony? Check! Great food, drinks, dessert, and a heck of a party? Double Check!! And the night ended with an epic hour on one of Night on the Town Limousine Service’s party buses.

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! And, finally, a shout out to our good friend (and fantastic model) Ryan (website, IG, and YouTube) of Bespoke Edge! Btw, you can still get a major hook up from JPEGmini; hit the link, use code SRJPEG, and save 20% on the very best photograph optimization technology, reducing the file size of your JPEG photographs by up to 5X! Yeah!!
