8-30-13 Phoenix Wedding Photographers EZWed00.jpg

Erika and Zaid were married over the Labor Day weekend at historic Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix.  The weekend was unusally hot, even by Phoenix standards, because of the extreme humidity.  The saying, "It's a dry heat", doesn't always apply, especially at the height of monsoon season.  That said, the day did hold back the storms and was beautiful none-the-less.

Erika chose to go with a vintage look that fit perfectly with the gorgeous vintage architecture of the venue!  The ceremony was stylish and the reception was full of special entertainment, from the belly dancers, to the live band, to the firework display, to the photo booth.  A great time was had by all the guests!

One special detail that we found very touching was Erika choosing to include Sun Conure bird feathers in the bouquet and boutonniere.  This was a surprise for Zaid.  The couple lost their beloved Sun Conure, Mango, recently and unexpectedly.  I have always had parrots and lost one very special one unexpectedly, so I really identify with the pain of losing such a special companion.  I thought it was a beautiful way of including Mango in such a major life event.

Did we mention that these two are photographers themselves and used to specialize in weddings.  They found us on the Wedding Photojournalist Association's (WPJA) website, a prestigious organization they used to be a part of ... no pressure there :-).  Erika and Zaid, you have been a delight to work with and we hope we did you proud!

A very special thank you to our associate photographer, Meg, for second shooting this stunning wedding!!

8-8-13 Sedona Trash The Dress Photographers ESTTD00.jpg

Elissa and Spenser were married in March.  They have been so busy since that they waited a while to do their trash the dress shoot.  We finally headed out in August to Sedona and it was so worth the wait!  We started the shoot at West Fork of Oak Creek and ended at Red Rock Crossing.  They were up for anything ... we like that :-), we had a great time and the photos are amazing!  We absolutely adore this couple and couldn't be happier for them!

Thanks to our Associate Photographer, Meg, for going along and contributing some awesome shots!

6-1-13 Sedona Trash The Dress Photographers WJTTD00.jpg

The day after Wendy and Jon's wedding at Merry-Go-Round Rock and Tlaquepaque, we headed back up to Sedona to photograph their Trash the Dress shoot. What a great time!! These two were up for anything, plus they look like models. We quickly determined that it is impossible to take a bad photo of Wendy ... what a beauty!

They brought along their very sweet dog, Riley, who made the shoot even more interesting. We started out in Oak Creek Canyon at West Fork Trail and finished up at Red Rock Crossing in lower Sedona. Thank you both again for having us as your wedding photographers. It was a true pleasure!

I'm so jealous I don't have such places here ! These pics are wonderful, the colors are great and I love the reflection with the water.
