We just love this couple!  Mona and Allen held their Indian Fusion Wedding on March 29th, 2014 and the day couldn't have been more beautiful.  They started the day with the first of two ceremonies with a lovely Catholic ceremony at St. Maria Goretti Catholic Church.  After a lunch held for their guests, the couple headed over to the Doubletree Resort Paradise Valley for their second ceremony, a colorful Hindu ceremony.  After the cocktail hour the final phase of the day concluded with a fun-filled reception.  A long day for sure, but one full of joy, fun, love and most important, the blending of two families and cultures.  We just love wedding like this!

We have to thank Jo Ann Grant of Apropos Creations for doing such an amazing job planning all the details and pulling them together to provide Mona and Allen with a day they will never forget!!

Mona and Allen, thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers!  We loved every minute of it and hope you enjoy the sneak peak :-)!

We LOVE this boudoir session we photographed at the ultra-unique, retro, Valley Ho Hotel in Scottsdale! The bride-to-be did this shoot as a gift for her groom ... what a GREAT gift idea :-)!

2-3-14 Destination Anguilla Wedding Photographers CMTTD00.jpg

The day after Cassondra and Matthew's amazing wedding at Cap Juluca Resort on the Caribbean Island of Anguilla, we headed out to explore the Island further during their Trash the Dress Session.  We wanted to incorporate some of the history of Anguilla in the shoot in addition to it's natural beauty.  This led us to a quite beach with two incredible shipwrecks!  We were told by locals that the two enormous ships were casualties of a fierce hurricane that hit the Island during the 1980's.  They certainly made for great backdrops!  What a fantastic weekend we had with a wonderful couple on a picturesque Island in the Caribbean!  Thank you both for this experience!  Enjoy!!
See Cassondra and Matthew's wedding images HERE!

2-2-14 Destination Anguilla Wedding Photographers CMWed00.jpg

When we told people we were going to Anguilla to photograph a destination wedding, for most the reaction was, huh???  It's true, many aren't familiar with the tiny Island located a mere ten miles off St. Maarten's coast in the Caribbean ... and that is precisely the point!  This charming, off-the-beaten path, spit of land is surrounded by crystal blue waters, powdery, white sand beaches and friendly locals happy to show others why they love their Island.  Lacking the tourist-trap feel, Anguilla was the perfect Caribbean Island for Cassondra and Matthew to get married and Cap Juluca Resort was the perfect venue!

We first encountered these two at a bridal show in Phoenix.  Kevin noticed Matthew looking at one of our large photos from a beach wedding and said, "I'm going to bet you are having a beach wedding?"  The answer was obviously yes, and the rest is history.  Just over a year later we were on a plane to paradise!

We love destination weddings like this - small, intimate, laid back and lots of fun!  This was what the couple wanted from their wedding and by the big smiles on their faces all day long it was obvious they were more than satisfied with their decision.  There were many personal touches, including a paisley garter in memory of Cassondra's brother, jumping the broom and having Matthew's father preside over the ceremony.  Matthew's two beautiful children were also part of the wedding party.  And of course we have to mention the reception dinner.  Lobster served by candlelight at a long table set up on the beach, complete with light ocean breezes and soft, warm sand shifting beneath your feet.  Seriously??!!  You can't get any more perfect than that!

We just loved this couple and all their family and friends.  Cassondra and Matthew, thank you for having us as your guests and wedding photographers and for allowing us to have that dining experience on the beach alongside you both :-).  Enjoy the sneak peak before we hit you with all the photos ... there are a lot :-)!!
