Featured on TheKnot.com, Congrats Jessica & Josh!

TheKnot.com has been working on a featured listing of a bride & groom I photographed back in October 2008.  It was a very memorable wedding on many regards; beautifully arranged and decorated, wonderful accomodations at the Stillwell House, super awesome couple, and a reception party that could dance like they were dancing for a gold medal.  Congratulations again to Jessica & Josh!

To view their story you can visit TheKnot.com and read the full story. If you want to recap on their awesome pics, visit our blog post here.

katie & denis | 4.18.09 @ stillwell house | tucson arizona wedding photography

You’ll remember Katie & Denis’ awesome engagement photos we took at the very end of last year (in fact, the 2nd to last photoshoot I did for 2008) and since then I had been really looking forward to their wedding.  They are such a fun, genuine couple that are truly in love.  I didn’t know much about their story until Sergio (the best man) gave his wedding speech/toast at the wedding, and what a fun and amazing couple they are!  Sergio, who undoubtedly gave the very best wedding speech (Lib’s was just as awesome as well!) I’ve ever heard in wedding history, insomuch that I really felt like I got to know Katie & Denis so much more and how wonderful a couple they make!  The light throughout the whole day was beautiful (thank you AZ, you’re always kind to me) and it was just a blast to be there with them.  The Stillwell House is always a fun place to shoot at, awesome details, superb staff and awesome food as well!  Thanks again guys for allowing me to work with you both on such a special day, I feel so lucky!

Also. big props to my buddy Sergio, sergiomottola.com, who flew down from Seattle for the weekend and came and shot this wedding with me.  You can see his stuff on his blog!  His style is such a breath of fresh air, he definitely beats to the tune of his own drum and copies no one.

Almost every wedding, the guests will be missing this kind of reaction of the groom when he sees the bride walking down the aisle.  Everyone always looks down the aisle at the beautiful bride (like above), but miss the sweet tender expressions of the groom.

There’s the beautiful lighting again, man, it was awesome!

On technical standpoint, this was my favorite lens of the day.  Gotta love the wide 24L loving, just fantabulous

Hard to say which one I like better.  But I bounced my flash on Sergio (the photographer) who was off the side, and also held a napkin up near the flash to create this effect.  You don’t need fancy tools to get the job done some times, just some ingenuity :)

andi & tony | tubac golf resort wedding photography

I had a super awesome wedding this past Saturday, it was the first time I had been to the Tubac Golf Resort. Totally amazing! Such a beautiful location, lots of amazing scenery and amazing hospitality from the staff. It was very top notch. To top it off I had such an amazing couple to work with, I was honored to be part of their day. In fact I knew Tony and a lot of his friends from high school, old times . . .

It was a hard to take a bad photograph because the weather and lighting could not have been so amazingly awesome. God definitely blessed us with a beautiful earth and Saturday it looked amazing! I’ve got a lot of photos to post so bear with me, I just loved so many of them! Thanks again Andi & Tony, I wish you the very best!

I couldn’t decide the many cool ringshots I took, but these 2 were my favs!

This one has a slight edge on being my favorite ringshot ever.

So they were trying to decide between themselves subconsciously whether or not to be nice, or smash the cake into each others face.  Tony got the first shot . . .

. . . but Andi got hers as well :)

Emma & Danny – Mesa & Tucson Wedding Photography

As many of you know already, Emma & Danny were married this past weekend in the Mesa Arizona LDS Temple, and their reception and ring-ceremony followed afterwards in Tucson at the Westward Look Resort.  It was the first time I had been to Westward Look and boy was it fun!  The post below shows how much fun it was, if you didn’t see the photobooth madness!  It was such a pleasure working with their families, everyone was so outgoing and easy to work with!  There’s quite a buzz circling the facebook pages, gotta check it out if you have not yet!

Thanks again Emma & Danny, you guys are super awesome!

I usually have my assistants grab candids while I setup for formal shots, they always come out better than the formals :(   But thats a good thing :)
