Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding

Mountain Shadows Resort wedding photographer

Gina and William’s Mountain Shadows Resort wedding was sleek, modern and elegant. Gina looked like a supermodel straight from the runway in a wedding gown that fit like a glove. They were married in an intimate ceremony on the balcony of the presidential suite at Mountain Shadows Resort with Camelback Mountain looming in the background. A warm and windy summer evening in Scottsdale without a cloud in the sky was just about perfect. Congratulations Gina and William!

Maya and John’s Royal Palms Resort wedding

Royal Palms Resort wedding pictures

Maya and John’s Royal Palms Resort wedding was both elegant and classic. I love how Maya had two distinct and gorgeous looks for the wedding, a royal red saree as well as a white lace wedding gown. All the bridesmaids looked amazing in their matching pale pink sarees. The outdoor wedding ceremony under Camelback Mountain was a celebration of their Christian faith and the joining of their families. It was wonderful to get to know Maya and John and be there to capture their special day.

Always professional and great to work with was wedding coordinator Tasha with Meant2Be Events.

Saying Goodbye to Sassi- Scottsdale, Arizona

Scottsdale wedding photographer

The warm and wonderful wedding venue & restaurant Sassi, in north Scottsdale, is closing its doors for good. After 14 years in business the property has been sold and will become an assisted living facility of all things. The wonderful staff at Sassi was always good to me over the years. I have many fond memories and ate some incredible Italian food there. I was luck enough to photograph so many happy couples as they walked through those iconic doors and down the staircase to get married. As I say goodbye I wanted to share a few of my favorite photographs from Sassi…. Arrivederci.

Mid Century Modern wedding at Mountain Shadows Resort

Mountain Shadows Resort wedding Scottsdale, Arizona

My first feeling when I walked into the brand new Mountain Shadows Resort at the base of Camelback Mountain was of inspiration. The views, the colors (hello teal!), the architecture and overall vibe of the resort is right up my alley. After a private tour of the property with Greg Wirth, catering sales manager, I left knowing I wanted to create photos that were fresh with a mid century modern aesthetic. Think Mad Men without looking costumed. Next step was to take that initial inspiration and turn it into a reality. I can’t stress enough how much I was honored & thrilled & relieved when the super fabulous Jennifer Star of J.Starr Stylized Weddings said “yes!” to becoming my collaborator for this styled photo shoot. Jennifer and I focused our energies on creating beautiful settings in intimate spaces inside the restaurant Hearth 61 as well as a couple little nooks around the resort. It takes a village to put something together like this and I can’t thank everyone enough for participating with their time and energy- see the full list of participating wedding vendors at the bottom of this post. Thank you also to Zeina Reinboldt, catering sales manager, with Mountain Shadows with all her help! Thank you! Thank you and enjoy!

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!
