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!

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!

Kim and Alex’s Prescott, Arizona wedding

Prescott wedding photography

Kim and Alex got married in a town close to their hearts- Prescott, Arizona. It’s where Alex proposed and a community they have always enjoyed together. Their rooftop ceremony was at the charming and historic Hassayampa Inn on a perfect fall afternoon. Kim’s brother did such an amazing job officiating! Downtown Prescott was alive with activity which made it fun walking with Kim and Alex and the bridal party from the Hassayampa Inn on one end of town to The Grand Highland Hotel on Whiskey Row- we even stopped some traffic along the way! I loved being able to take advantage of all the old buildings with so much character. The outdoor reception/dance party at The Grand Highland Hotel was one of the wildest I have been to in a while! The whole day was really so much fun. Congratulations Kim and Alex!

Brandy with Sweet I Do wedding coordination was amazing to work with as were the staff at both hotels and the fantastic Custom Fit DJ. It was also a special wedding to have my husband, David, as my second shooter for the day. Side note: David found out he won an Emmy while we were in the middle of photographing Kim and Alex’s wedding reception!

Kayla and Ryan’s Paradise Valley Country Club wedding

Paradise Valley Country Club wedding photography

Kayla and Ryan’s Paradise Valley wedding day was magical. From getting ready with her beautiful bridesmaids to a gorgeous ceremony surrounded by stained glass everything was picture perfect throughout the day. One of my favorite moments was Kayla and Ryan’s first look at Paradise Valley Country Club. When the bustle of the wedding day was starting to get just a little too overwhelming the first look seemed to calm this bride and groom’s nerves. It was such a sweet and calming instant. Kayla has an amazing smile that radiates warmth and joy and it shone through the wedding ceremony and throughout the party! A grand sparkler exit completed the night as Kayla and Ryan escaped into a classic red get away car.
