Best of 2017 Arizona wedding photojournalism

Scottsdale, Phoenix, Sedona Arizona award winning wedding photography

Looking back through my wedding archives of 2017 gives me time to think about on all the amazing people I have gotten to know throughout the year. Couples that are unique and beautiful inside and out. My wedding travels included Sedona, Prescott and Mexico, camera in hand to capture some truly memorable celebrations. I photographed high school sweethearts, best friends, and one couple that had been together 20 years before marrying. Reflecting on 2017 makes me excited to see that 2018 has in store!

Emma and Sean’s Desert Botanical Garden engagement session

Desert Botanical Garden wedding photographer

Emma and Sean are the kind of couple that are natural in front of the camera. Playful and loving together it was fun to get a small glimpse into their relationship before their wedding next year. I photographed their engagement session at the Desert Botanical Garden among the usual desert beauty of the garden and unusual art of of Japanese American artist Jun Kaneko. If you haven’t seen the current art exhibit I recommend it. The sculptures are colorful, bold and whimsical.

Easton and Adam’s Venue at the Grove wedding

Venue at the Grove wedding photography

Easton and Adam’s  travel inspired wedding was all about good food, music and family being together. Easton’s brother officiated the outdoor rustic-glam- grove wedding. Looking around you would never know this wedding was in Phoenix. Easton’s vision for what the setting would look like truly came alive with the open tent reception area and ceremony in the round. My favorite moment of the day was watching Adam’s tearful and overwhelmed expression as Easton walked towards him down the aisle with her father. Following the ceremony the party (and bridal party) was so much fun! Dancing, laughing & togetherness. Congratulations Easton and Adam!

Emilie and Tyler’s backyard wedding

Arizona backyard wedding

It seems like Emilie and Tyler have known and loved each other forever. I liked how they had pictures from high school together, all dressed up for a formal dance, as decoration at the wedding. Their backyard wedding was held at Emilie’s grandmother’s beautiful home. The wedding was intimate and full of joy, friends and family. Clearly best friends, Emilie and Tyler couldn’t have seemed happier of more in love. Congratulations!

Tiffany and Joe’s Troon North Golf Club wedding- Scottsdale, Arizona

Troon North Golf Club wedding pictures

Tiffany and Joes’s Troon North Golf Club destination wedding embraced bold colors and the natural beauty of the Sonoran desert in fall. Their Scottsdale wedding was a gorgeous day surrounded by the nicest people. After the wedding ceremony while Tiffany, Joe and I were taking pictures on the golf course Joe caught a glimpse of a bobcat run across the course. A minute later that same bobcat triumphantly returned with a bunny for dinner. I have been photographing weddings in Arizona for quite some time now and have encountered wildlife but never mid-hunt! After our little nature show we enjoyed a stunning desert sunset before the party got started. Instead of a wedding cake Tiffany and Joe opted for mini pies and together the cut a caramel apple pie! Congratulations Tiffany and Joe!
