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!

Michelle and Matt’s Gainey Ranch Golf Club wedding- Scottsdale, Arizona

Gainey Ranch Golf Club wedding photography

Classic romance with a burst of fireworks would be a good way to describe Michelle and Matt’s wedding. Matt got ready at his parent’s home in Scottsdale and I really enjoyed the laid back and family oriented atmosphere. If you see a few familiar faces in these pictures it is because I was lucky enough to photograph Michelle’s brother’s wedding a couple years ago (click here to see that magical day). The ceremony was at Brophy Chapel in Phoenix with the reception taking place at Gainey Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale. I love night photography and the challenge of creating unique images in low light situations so I really had fun with Michelle and Matt doing some post-sunset portraits at the golf club. The big surprise of the evening was up close and personal fireworks show. Congratulations Michelle and Matt, two best friends in love and now married!

Jamie and Joe’s Desert Botanical Garden wedding

Desert Botanical Garden wedding Steele Herb Garden

Where to begin with Jamie and Joe’s wedding… Families and kids all coming together, children getting crazy popping bubbles, a perfect day at the Desert Botanical Garden, good food, dancing, and Jamie’s most radiant smile. It is impossible to look at Jamie’s smile and not smile along! One unique tradition that I had not seen before was the exchanging of rings on the tip of a sword. A real sword- Viking style- because, why not! Congratulations Jamie and Joe! I had such a wonderful time photographing your intimate wedding ceremony and party!
