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!

Jennifer and Dale’s Rancho Manana wedding- Cave Creek, Arizona

Rancho Manana wedding photography Cave Creek, AZ

Jennifer and Dale joined together in marriage on the winter solstice. A piercingly cold and bright winter day in Cave Creek, Arizona. Jennifer looked incredible from head to toe in a custom black and gray wedding gown. The flowers and wedding decor consisted of red roses, real cotton, pomegranates and oranges. The overall style was artistic and earthy with texture and glamor. It was a leisurely day marked by good food, friends, music and conversation. One highlight was a visit by a coyote during my portrait time with Jennifer and Dale shortly before sunset. It is really special to see wildlife at weddings. Congratulations Jennifer and Dale!

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!

June and Rob’s Scottsdale engagement session

Scottsdale engagement session photographer

My plan for June and Rob’s engagement session was to talk and walk and laugh and maybe a little coffee too. I really enjoy letting the light and scenery tell me where to photograph and June and Rob made the afternoon a joy. A warm November day we explored around Scottsdale’s back alleyways and waterfront for the natural portrait photo shoot. I can’t wait for their wedding next year!
