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!

Scroll on down, friends, and check out some highlights from Craig & Maria’s Maricopa, Arizona, wedding!

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).

[Btw, have you checked out Amy & Seth’s Destination Wedding in Manduria, Italy?]

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.

Arizona’s Best Wedding Photography | 2017

2017 was a great year. It was filled with loads of adventures and took us from Arizona to California, and to international destinations like Italy. (We can’t wait to share those with you!). As we look ahead to all that 2018 has in store, we’re stoked to share some of Arizona’s best wedding photography of 2017 with you. Of course, we couldn’t have done it with out the support of our awesome kids (and their “babysitters”) … and our rad clients! Thanks for an ah-mazing 2017, everyone!

Arizona’s Best Wedding Photography: The Venues

2017 brought us to some legit venues.

One of our favorite adventures? Driving up to the Arrowhead Pine Rose Cabin Resort for Chevy & Todd’s California Mountain Wedding. Chevy and Todd’s California mountain wedding was such a classy affair. Dare we say a dream wedding? We do! The love that Chevy and Todd share with their family and friends, who surrounded them at just over 5,000 feet, is so beautiful … And what a location too: the small California mountain town of Lake Arrowhead, California.

We’d be remiss to not mention Kimberly & Brendan’s Phoenix Art Museum wedding. Surrounded by their family and friends, Kimberly & Brendan showed what it looks like when true love meets high class. They had their first look in the art museum. They arranged a classic car ride from the ceremony to the reception. And, following hour upon hour of a packed dance floor, they hit up one of their favorite date night spots, The Duce … for their after party. Good times and great love for sure!

(Check out some of our Favorites Photographs from 2016!)

WPPI 2017

Finally, we want to highlight what a blast we had in Las Vegas at WPPI 2017, held at the Las Vegas Convention Center. We participated as leaders of a Photo Walk. Our WPPI 2017 Photo Walk focused on some of our favorite techniques for photographing a bride getting ready. We brought in Sam from Amelia C & Co, Vegas’ top hair and makeup artistry company. Sam rocked out a hair and makeup sesh on our bride/model, who was compliments of The Model Network (Facebook and Instagram). Tether Tools and MagMod were the sponsors.

We demonstrated how we use Tether Tools’ RapidMount PowrGrip Kit for photographing in the shower. We showed how we use Tether Tools’ RapidMount SLX with RapidStrips when photographing in the bathroom. And we also threw in a few examples of how MagMod’s MagGrid is the essential tool for directing light, and absolutely fundamental if you want to nail that somewhat elusive “shower shot.”

We’re excited to announce that we’ll be back at WPPI for 2018 for another Photo Walk, photographing a groom getting ready! If you’re interested in attending, and if you’re looking to save 15 percent on any of the classes WPPI is offering this year, you can sign up here.

Camille & Phillip’s Elegant Arizona Barn Wedding || The Windmill Winery

Camille & Phillip’s elegant Arizona barn wedding at The Windmill Winery was oh-so-amazing. They braved the Arizona heat and were married under the shade of some trees on the property and then held their reception at one of our favorite locations at The Windmill Windery, “The Barn.” We started the day photographing them getting ready at their hotel and kept snapping away until they drove off late in the evening . . . and we were even able to get a few shots of their friends and family breaking down (after they were all finished “getting down”). Btw, that legit cake is by Bamboo Bakery and the gorgeous and tasty eats are by Elina’s Catering . . . Cheers, friends!
