heather + scott // ritz carlton wedding

It feels surreal typing this, but this is my last wedding of 2012 and it definitely went out with a bang! Heather + Scott had an absolutely gorgeous wedding at the most beautiful venue in all of Arizona. It was a family centric event with lots of emotion, surprises, laughter and fun. Thank you for allowing me to capture such a special event in your lives!

lindsey + brian // wedding

What an incredible wedding!  Lindsey + Brian seriously planned the perfect day.  Everything went soooo smooth, it was definitely meant to be.  The Stillwell House is one of my favorite local wedding venues.  It offers a unique setting with a lot of charm and variety mixed in.  A very emotional morning and ceremony was topped off with a smashing reception party that had some serious groove to it.  Thanks for letting me come tag along!

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!

I was impressed to find out how much Stevie actually helped with the reception, a lot of the food was made by her!  They were delicious too :)

Man I love this family!  I had another awesome wedding this weekend with the Loftfield family, I could probably work with them every weekend and I probably wouldn’t get tired of it.  They know how to have fun and party and that makes my job just that much better.  Here are a few of my favorite portraits from their photobooth at the reception.  Hard not to post more because they are all so awesome, but I think 30 should suffice :)

Crystal & Todd | Feb 21 | Arizona Wedding Photographer in Tucson

As some of you blog stalkers might have noticed, I’m a little behind on the blog and galleries lately . . . not because I still don’t like you guys or think that your images are no long amazing, it’s just been busy. I’m grateful I can say that these days as I know many that are not! But, I had a super awesome wedding almost 2 weeks ago on probably the very best day of the year . . . Feb 21st. It was my birthday and no better way to spend it than working a 16hr day! Heck ya! (can you tell that I love my job yet?)

Anyway, I had a great time working with Crystal & Todd, it was just a lot of fun the entire time. You’ll also be able to check out their BOOTH shots near the bottom of the post (you don’t want to miss one of them, but I’m warning you now, its graphic). Crystal started the day getting ready at her parents home in the 49rs country club (such a beautiful home), their ceremony was down the street at the Kingdom Hall, and then we cruised down south to Cienega HS for their reception (very cool place for a reception I’ll tell you that!). It was a gorgeous day with awesome light, couldn’t have asked for anything better! Enjoy, I know you all have been waiting :)

This one has to be one of the BEST alltime funny kid photos!!  Classic!

Amazing light, holy wow!

This was our 2nd debut for our BOOTH . . . and it was just as crazy (if not crazier) than our original BOOTH setup!

DJ Warren B got in on some of the action here, helping save Todd from a bad headache I guess :P

OK, this one needs a CAUTION!!!  Not that their bellies are big and harry, but it’s the image directly after this one!!!  Warning, it’s a graphic image of these 2 fellows who appear to be vomiting their drinks into the trash.  You’ve been warned! It’s NOT for the faint at heart (or stomach) . . .

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 :)

Arlene & Christo – Hindi Style!

I was honored to be a part of Arlene & Christo’s big day.  They have been planning for quite some time and it seemed that everything just fell into place at the very right moments!  I was particularly excited to photograph this wedding because I knew that their outfits, the decorations, food and guests were all going to be superb . . . and I was not let down!  They had their ceremony at their home, and then we headed over to Agua Caliente park for some group and formal portraits.  I’m extremely delighted to say that it was a beautiful day, the stars had aligned (literally, it was a significant day for them) and everything was as smooth as the music :)

Thanks again Arlene & Christo, it was a blast to work with you guys!
