The first look is something that isn’t easily forgotten when a couple thinks back to their big day. That excitement builds to a level like no other. Every bride and groom are different when they turn toward each other for the first time, but it is always the look of love that is shared.
The ceremony, at Arrowhead Country Club, really was a beauty to capture. The angles I was able to use were stunning and the surrounding areas allowed for some fantastic formal shots with the couple. The landscaping props mixed with Pat and Kelley made for amazing images!
Special shout out to the hair and make up artist – Jamie Bravo, the florist – Cactus Flowers, the baker – Elaine Volner and the DJ – Ray Martinez.
Jesse and Amy had quite a stunning wedding. The colors popped, the accents sparkled and the smiles were bright. I am thrilled to get to spent time with people who show off their love like this couple. We had a fun group and a beautiful day. Ocotillo Golf Club is one of the top locations for weddings.
I love the sunsets I am able to grab overlooking a manicured pond.
Props to the vendors. Hair and makeup was done by The EDGE Salon (San Tan). The florist was Kristen of Blume Events LLC and the bakery used was the wonderful Honeymoon Sweets.
Troon North Golf Club is the place to be wed this year!
Greg and Ashley took advantage of all this stunning venue had to offer. They added their own flowers and sparkler flare to finish off their perfect day.
The vendors of this beautiful wedding were:
Hair stylist: Dina DiTullio Hansen
Makeup artist: Stephanie Nault
DJ: Curtis Whipple
Planner/Florist: Thee Wedding Warehouse
Cake: Frosted Art
Carlos and Sonia were wonderful to have as clients. This stunning couple is so fun and made their day as unique as their love for one another! As usual, The Castle at Ashley Manor did a fantastic job hosting this wedding. Elegance and romance are perfectly mixed at this venue every time. At the end of the night, the couple and their guests released Chinese Wish Lanterns. This was a special addition to the night. Around the world, sky lanterns have been traditionally made for centuries, to be launched for play or for special festivities. So happy to have been a part of the start to their lives together!

I recently had the honor of photographing Carol and Wayne’s 25-year Vow Renewal at Carefree Resort. What an inspiration! Julie and I only have 6 years behind us and I hope we are THIS adorable when we reach that milestone. When she walked down the aisle you could just see that the spark was still there. Even more fun was taking them out for pictures at sunset once the weather cooled off a little.
Congratulations, lovebirds, and thank you for allowing me to be there on such a special day!!
Jeff and Alexi were wed in the gorgeous Central United Methodist church. I am so thankful when I am able to shoot weddings in venues this beautiful. The bride and groom had a love that was easy to capture through my lens. The colors of the venues (wedding at Central United Methodist church and reception at Wrigley Mansion) were so vibrant and the sunset that evening just popped. I love when all of the pieces of the evening fall into place for the bride and groom.
