ashley + troy // wed

It’s hard to write so little because there is so, so much to say.  Much of it really isn’t mine to say either, so I’ll leave it with this: Ashley + Troy are one incredible couple.  By saying that they have really been through a lot together would be a serious understatement.  The amount of personal sacrifice and hardship that people go through in life hopefully equates to greater appreciation for life’s joys and blessings…and Ashley + Troy are the epitome of happiness, joy, kindness, love and respect…all with great abundance.  It truly was a special honor for me to participate in such an amazing event for both of them.  I knew that they would be an incredible couple to photograph ever since Troy surprised Ashley with an engagement session, and it just so happened to snow that day.  Coincidence?  I think not.

tara + chris // la paloma wedding

It has been a long time in the works and the day finally arrived that Tara + Chris were to be wed.  That day was Saturday and oh what a beautiful day it was.  The preparation, ceremony and wedding reception all took place at the beautiful Westin La Paloma where we had awesome sunshine and mild cloud coverage for the entire day.  Tara planned out everything to the last jot and tittle, and you could really tell the amount of time that they both had spent planning their special day.  Custom t-shirts, flowers, gifts, cards, shoes, wardrobe, cake toppers, custom “bridal room” door-hangers, a shnazzy pen to sign their license, it was all there and done very well.  We started off the day before noon with their getting-ready portraits.  The amazing Katy Davis from Couture Makeup did such an amazing job, I’ve never seen anyone quite as talented as her.  The flowers, provided by Patty Hunter from Sauliz Floral Dezigns were exquisite!! (She even drove to Phoenix that morning to pick up flowers for the bouquets, now thats service!)  Everything came together just perfectly, and to my knowledge, everything ran as smooth as it could have done.  Thank you SOOOOO much for letting me be a part of such a wonderful event, it was definitely a wedding I will never forget.

Props to my good friend Sam Hassas for coming out and helping me on this wedding.  It’s always a pleasure working with him, make sure to check out his blog!  Big thanks to all the vendors who came out and performed wonderfully for their special day!

stevie + kyle // wedding, mesa arizona

If you haven’t seen enough of these awesome folks, then here’s another 30+ images from their wedding day.  We started super early at 6:30am at the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple in order to have the best light for their portraits.  I don’t shoot in the morning very often, but this day was different in the quality and color of light, creating an almost pastel palette of colors and tones.  I loved it, I should shoot more in the wee morning hours more often . . . the only problem is maybe finding people who would be up for it :D   It was a pleasure working with them and their families on such a beautiful day, I couldn’t have asked for more.  Later that evening we traveled back to Tucson for their wedding reception at their wonderful home.  One of the best receptions I’ve attended, maybe because they built their house knowing they would be hosting weddings there!  They rocked an awesome photbooth (see post just below this!) and the decorations, food and fun was definitely a night to remember.  Thanks again to all who partied with us!

Also a big thanks to my assistant for the morning, Jeff Ambrose.  Always a pleasure to have you come!

Stephanie & Fabian | UofA Engagement

I get the coolest locations. Period. End of story. I also get the coolest couples in the whole world. Stephanie & Fabian happen to be one of them. You don’t even need to know them to realize how cool they are, just check out their pics! Fabian works at the UA and hooked us up with some sweet access to the famous McKale center and also the UA Football stadium. Our expectations were high, but unfortunately we ran into some pitfalls: 1. McKale was setup for a Volleyball game later that evening, so it wasn’t nearly as fun as it could have been :( 2. Football stadium had just been fertilized, so there was a tarp covering the field :( 3. We had very short amounts of time at each location :( Good thing was, we didn’t need anything more because they both brought their A game.

There are a lot of pictures that I cannot necessarily post because I am also restricted on not posting any photographs that contain any official UA logos and other UA Sports paraphernalia. They are getting married in April and I CANNOT WAIT.

First off, any true Wildcat fan should recognize the signature on this ball. In fact, this was a hall-of-fame signature studded ball for sure! Which one is worth more, the ring or the ball?

Open House Success!

Wow, it’s hard to know where to start saying thank you and where to start grovelling for all those that have helped and supported me in getting the Studio off the ground! The Open House was a success and I thank everyone that was in attendance and helped make it a great evening. I wish I had more time to speak to everyone that came, there were quite a few people that showed up and made greeting everyone a little difficult, but it was still very humbling and awesome at the same time seeing everyone that came. I hope you all enjoyed it!

Now that the Studio Open House is over, I think I can start thinking about getting back to work on actual client projects, it has consumed so much of my time!  I feel proud to show it off though, it looks sweet!  My blog is definitely happy that I’m back on here, it’s been neglected a bit :(

My dad goofing off before everyone was arriving.  I can honestly say I owe all my success to him!

Post-Wedding Portraits with Amanda & Jason

I had a great opportunity to work with one of my amazing couples from this summer in shooting some post-wedding portraits. I had set out to create one pic I had in mind while driving to the location, something very scenic, creative and warm. We headed just north of Tucson, back to Saddlebrooke for a 1 hour session.  The clouds provided an awesome addition to this one pic, hope you enjoy it! Thanks again Amanda & Jason!

Samantha @ Benson | Senior Portraits in Arizona

I had a super fun time photographing a new HS Senior down in the beautiful area of Benson.  Samantha was very photogenic and easy to photograph and the natural light was just to die for!  Every time I go to Benson I’m surprised at all the cool things I am able to find.  Perfect weather + awesome model + new equipment makes for an awesome day!  I also was able to use my new Elinchrom Quadra kit, which proved itself to be indescribably awesome.  Here are a few of my quick favs!  Enjoy . . .

Amanda & Jason are wed! | Saddlebrooke Wedding in Tucson Arizona

It was a very emotional day full of smiles, tears, laughs and hugs.  A day I will not soon forget.  I have been so honored to have known the Dillon family and all that I have been able to do with them, and now seeing Amanda & Jason is just thrilling to say the least.  Many of you will remember their historic engagement session where they just tore it up!  Check out their awesome engagement post to relive their awesome pics!  http://www.spencerboerup.com/blog/archives/238

Their wedding was at the beautiful Saddlebrooke Wedding venue, one of the very coolest venues, in my opinion, in all of Tucson.  Lots of beautiful window lighting, HUGE ceilings and just a great all around place!  Every minute of the day was just awesome, and although it was a long one, it was very invigorating and refreshing to be with a couple so in love with each other.  Congratulations again Amanda & Jason (and to your new families!), I can’t wait to photograph the little kiddos :)

WARNING: LOTS OF AWESOME IMAGES!!!

Awesome skies the entire day, can’t complain with that!

Check out that ROCK!

WOW!  Instant heart-throb, she is smokin’ in this one!  Looks like a top model to me . . .

My assistant Kyle grabbed these 2 great details

Another WOW!

Guys just couldn’t contain themselves, so much that they . . .

almost ran me over!

I loved this one how her dress is all poofed up, she looks like a Disney princess here!

Another great grab by Kyle, Amanda was so excited about all the people come she was always gazing out the windows to see the commotion :D

It was contagious after a bit apparently

Jason became very emotional as he saw his beautiful bride for the first time coming down the aisle

Another great shot by Kyle

Jason couldn’t keep that smile off his face the entire day!

Another great detail by Kyle

The Dillon’s are VERY proud and happy parents :)

If you look past their awesome beauty, you’ll see a small family of deer in the background, haha!

B&G FTW!

I love a couple that isn’t afraid to be goofy and have a lot of fun!

Surprise gift from Amanda’s family to Jason . . . is that Nacho Libre?

Dance shot FTW!

Just STUNNING!

I love the bubble exit, so awesome!

Mathur Sneak Peak! | Family Portraits in Tucson Arizona

Two posts within 12 hours, crazy I know!  I just couldn’t contain my enthusiasm for this family’s portraits we did on Tuesday!  This little boy should be a model for all sorts of baby stuff, because he could really “work it”.  Enjoy!

Valerie & Steve – Ritz Carlton Engagement Portraits

Well, many people were impressed that I got to shoot at the Tucson Airport with unlimited access to anywhere I wanted to shoot. Well, I think I might have almost topped that this week! I got special corporate clearance from the Ritz Carlton in Tucson, and I had full access to the Championship golf course and club house, the entire afternoon with NO ONE ELSE THERE. Yes, you read it: full access to a world class golf facilities with an awesome couple, amazing lighting, and a large can of awesomeness. Only time limited our creativity, but boy was it an opportunity. Valerie & Steve were a blast to work with and look forward to their wedding come August! We started out in the downtown area for a little bit, then headed to the Ritz golf club and had a blast. Tiger Woods has won the Championship Match Play Tournament at this course a number of times . . . this place was EXACTLY like you would see in the really high-end magazines and stuff . . . top notch! I hope that someday I can go back, but I doubt I’ll get that kind of opp again. NOTE: You never know where you’ll get here in Tucson if you just drop my name :) Thanks again Valerie & Steve, you’re the bestest!

Christmas in . . . September?

I recently uploaded some images to share of some new Albums I had received back from my album manufacturers so that people can get a feel for what our albums are all about.  Well, it’s been a busy year and I received a wonderfully large package from GraphiStudio (album company based in Italy, yes, Italy) full of all sorts of little goodies!  Chock full of albums and samples.

GraphiStudio provides one of the finest album services in the entire industry and you can tell when you hold one of their albums for the first time.  These 2 albums below had the same amount of pages, but have different album covers.  The first is a RED Aluminum cover with the bride & groom name etched into the metal (this isn’t some cheesy stuff, it’s the real deal here).  The second is a fine Italian-leather with the bride & groom name embossed / branded into the leather for a permanent fix.  Each GraphiStudio album is printed on true photographic-paper, and you’ll notice from the last sample image, that each spread lays entirely flat.  Through this binding process, you lose very little (if any at all) in the gutter of the book, thus being able to utilize one entire picture for a large 12×18″ print.  Very nice.

 You can see the reflection (sort of) on the cover, this is real aluminum.

Each page is mounted on a thick board to help protect each page from bending and warping.

The spine wraps around the entire back of the book.  These are very well made and very rugged (but do take care of them still!)

Here you can see the laser etching.

I loved the ivory leather, very very awesome.  Also, notice the names embossed onto the cover.

This unique leather style cover is a mix of traditional, yet contemporary with the image window here.

Again, the image window shown.

Here is a great example of why these books are AWESOME.  Your beautiful album design does not get lost in the gutter of the book!

Jessica & Josh | Downtown Tucson Engagement Portraits

I had a super-awesome e-session (engagement session for photographer lingo!) downtown yesterday with Jessica & Josh.  I’ve been super excited to finally work with them since we met back in May.  Their wedding is in about 1 month from now which I can’t wait for as well!  Although it was nice weather, I was hoping for a little bit of sunlight, but the clouds loomed ominously overhead the entire time.  One of my biggest dreams is to shoot in some heavy rain . . . but we didn’t get to that yesterday.  They were both so comfortable and relaxed, it made my job look easy!  You guys rocked my day yesterday!

PS: thanks to my friend Travis for getting some behind-the-scenes shots of me working.  Always fun to see myself in a different perspective!

Me in action here (I need a haircut, wow!):

Tonie’s Album! Wedding Album for Arizona Wedding at Saguaro Buttes

I just finished the design for Tonie & Jason’s album last week and have been waiting to put them up to display.  I had the wonderful assistance of a talented digital scrapbook and designer, Meagan Turnidge, who helped me speed up my time so I can breathe a little more :)   After a couple of tweaks of “my style” of design it was near perfect.  I absolutely love it and can’t wait to get it back!  This will be another 60 page GraphiStudio album and it is going to be GORGEOUS.  You have to see these in person they are so amazing!

Anyway, their wedding was awesome and it was such an honor to work with them!  Thanks again Tonie & Jason, you guys rock!

Chris in action! High School Senior Portraits in Tucson Arizona at La Paloma

I had a fun shoot yesterday with Chris as we did something a little different than I usually do.  Chris plays on the volleyball team at his school and we arranged to get some cool action shots on the court at the High School.  It was a blast!  Chris was a little unsure I think of how we could make “cool” volleyball shots, but I think we nailed them here.  It was quite nostalgic as well, as it was the same High School I attended too!  I even saw one of my old history teachers, but I don’t think he remembered me :)   Anyway, I approached this like a Nike / Gatorade ad, all those cool action shots you always see in the magazines.

We finished up the fun action pictures and then headed over to La Paloma for some other more formal / casual type portraits.  We barely missed the rain but I think they worked out just well!  Thansk again Chris!

Also to show off some of the cool posters we can create, here’s a little mokup:

 

I was also fortunate enough to have been able to work with Chris’ family for a awesome family portrait out on the east side a couple weeks ago.  Their family was one of the easiest to work with, they just fell in place, looked great!  They make it look so easy to do!  Thanks again!

New Album Design – Melissa & Jonathan! Arizona Inn Wedding in Tucson Arizona

I know you are all dying for something new as my blog page has been pretty sparse lately.  Well, you’re probably not . . . but I’d like to think so :)   It has been a busy summer with a number of weddings and many portraits in between, and I’m now just getting caught up with everything.  I wanted to share a recent album design from Melissa & Jonathan’s wedding back in April!  This will be a GraphiStudio album (custom albums hand crafted in Italy) and I can’t wait for it!  They are going to be blown away these are so awesome.  But, most of the awesomeness of a great album comes from a great designer (blatent plug here!).

Thanks for looking, and enjoy!

Dillon Family | Family Portraits in Tucson Arizona @ El Conquistador

I had such a blast with the Dillon family a week and a half ago, and have been a little slow at getting their pictures up on the blog. I was able to work with Brett and his Senior Portraits a couple months back, and now they all got together for a large family portrait. It was a beautiful day out with clear skies and nice weather, it couldn’t have been nicer. El Conquistador is the backdrop if you had not noticed. I must say that I laughed a whole lot with them, they are just an awesome family to be around!





You’ll see why I laughed a lot, they were just very spontaneous and fun to with! You’ll have to ask Brett what he was after with that last one . . .

Tonie & Jason – 5.10.08 | Saguaro Buttes Wedding Photography in Tucson Arizona

I had the wonderful honor to work with Tonie & Jason, their friends and family, on such an important occasion! They totally rocked the house and it was an awesome wedding. Beautiful dress, tons of love and friendship, wonderful weather, and the coolest 1st dance I’ve ever seen in my life. You seen the YouTube one? Theirs was way better!

The wedding was at the Saguaro Buttes in southeast Tucson on a wonderfully gorgeous afternoon. For all that attended, their photos are online at their gallery for viewing. Go to: www.spencerboerup.com/proofs and enter their password. Don’t have a password, email them :)

Enjoy!


























Cheryl & Josh – Downtown Tucson Engagement Portraits in Arizona

What do you get when you combine an awesome couple, super cool location, great lighting and lot’s of energy? You get Cheryl & Josh’s engagement pictures! We headed downtown for what was going to be a moderately warm day, but the only thing that stayed hot was the couple! They didn’t stop, just one awesome picture after the other. We even had to stop and take a water break, it was that much fun! We just kept on walking around and found some of the coolest locations, like graffiti walls, abandoned buildings, parking garages and much more. If you know Cheryl or Josh, be sure to let them know how much you liked their photos!




















Engagement Guest Book – Next Hottest Wedding “must-have”!

So my designs and albums are becoming ever more popular, and I just started offering a new service (well back in January I guess). When was the last time that you flipped through your guest book from your wedding? I know I don’t remember. How much more often would you look at it if it had funny messages, cool insights, your awesome engagement photos??? Usually you can remember who was there from the photography and you don’t need to turn to the guest book for that. Things have changed! Check some new designs for our Engagement Guest Books and see why these are so much cooler than you average joe-shmoe guest book. Prepare to be . . . bamboozled (I heard this word the other day and had to use it in a sentence!)
