Mrs. K came to me looking for a secret photo session to surprise her husband with for Valentine’s Day. And of course, I was happy to oblige.
She was not only incredibly GORGEOUS, but was such a sport about it, and had an amazingly infectious laugh. Can you tell we had fun?
It was even more fun because she brought along one of her girlfriends, to help out with the photo styling, and just to help her feel more comfortable…
And you know, I’m hoping to photograph you next, Ms. P!
Enjoy the photos, A. And you’ll have to let me know what your husband thought of his Valentine’s Day sexy present!!!
Kristen and Aaron (see their engagement session here)picked the most perfect day for their wedding at Gold Canyon Golf Resort, at the far East end of the Valley. It was a Scottsdale Wedding Photographer‘s dream!
I was so happy to be part of their big day… you could feel the love between them, they were practically glowing!
And after the ceremony, their friends and family toasted to the happy couple, as is tradition in most wedding receptions. Well, let me tell you, there wasn’t a dry eye in the house (yes, even mine, LOL!)
What a beautiful story, what a beautiful couple, both inside and out.
Thank you again Kristen and Aaron for choosing me to photograph your wedding. I am truly honored.
You two are just soooooo gorgeous, you help make my Arizona wedding photography look that much better.
I wish you two nothing but the best, and a very happy and loving marriage for years and years to come.
Enjoy your Scottsdale/Phoenix wedding photography… I know I enjoyed shooting it.
I had so much fun photographing Tiffany and Sam a few weeks ago at the Scottsdale Center for the Arts. As you can see, they’re a beautiful, fun and loving couple. Oh, and they’re super nice too.
They actually reminded me a lot of my cousin Julie and her new husband Jared… Like Julie and Jared, Tiffany is medical doctor and Sam is a pharmacist. And these two are just so nice and fun, I had the best time spending time with them during their engagement photography session. Can’t wait for the wedding!!!
Thanks again Tiffany and Sam, enjoy your Scottsdale engagement photos!
Aren’t Arizona sunsets just the best???
Jeff and Candace are a newly-transplanted couple who just moved down to the valley from Canada, eh? They’re so darn cute, and very enthusiastic about calling Scottsdale home… even in 100°+ heat, LOL. As they say, at least you don’t have to shovel sunshine.
They wanted to do their engagement session in Scottsdale, but wanted some tall, established trees and a natural setting as a backdrop and I knew Scottsdale’s Railroad park would be the perfect place for this session. Plus, it has a super cute, old fashioned carousel and some cool trains that we could also use in the session.
Jeff and Candace were up for it, so over to the railroad park we headed. We chose to shoot in the evening so we could get that great, warm, Arizona light that looks so terrific in photos, and we also took advantage of the setting sun to get a beautiful sunset shot.
Thanks again, so much, Jeff and Candace. It was fun spending some time with the two of you. You guys make such a great couple, and I can’t wait for your wedding!!!
Jeremy and Adrienne met in grade school. Yep, grade school. (see their Scottsdale engagement photography session here)
They haven’t always been together… they drifted their separate ways for a while… but they were always MEANT to be together. You can tell just by looking at them. They make each other happy. They complete each other.
I met Adrienne through a photography/modeling forum that I frequent. We discovered that we lived close to each other, and got together a few times. She even participated in my recent Scottsdale bridal photo shoot at a local hotel when we were looking for models… So when she asked me to shoot her wedding I was honored that she would choose me. I know she values photography, and I know she’s SUPER photogenic and would be great fun to work with on her wedding day, so of course I jumped at the chance.
And the added bonus for me was that I wanted to attend the rehearsal the night before the Scottsdale wedding ceremony, and she let me bring my girls with me! OMG they had such a fantastic time, seeing the bridal party, spending time with Adrienne (whom they adore!!!) and getting to meet her “prince” Jeremy. (yes, they see everything in terms of a fairy tale, LOL).
Oh, and as a fun little fact… in the course of our working together and preparing for the wedding, we discovered that Adrienne and I share the same birthday! October 19th, right around the corner. No wonder we hit it off so well. Happy birthday next week, Adrienne!!!
Well, as you can see from these photos, the wedding was everything I was hoping it would be. A gorgeous bride, a very loving family, amazingly fun wedding party, and tons of really great friends. There was almost no stress that day, everyone was just having a fantastic time, celebrating the marriage of Jeremy and Adrienne. Aside from loving to photograph weddings, I really, really love to participate in these special occasions because it’s such a happy time. So much hope and anticipation of their future life together.
Thank you so much, Adrienne and Jeremy for choosing me to document your wedding day with photographs. I truly loved being part of the day, and I hope I was able to capture not just the day for you, but the emotions and especially the love you have for each other.
xo xo xo
I met this couple a few weeks ago in Phoenix at Biltmore Fashion Park to talk about their upcoming wedding, at the beginning of November. We really hit it off, and we discussed their engagement session as well at the time. We came up with several different possible locations, but in the end we decided to do their engagement photo session at their wedding venue. I haven’t shot a wedding there before, so I wanted to see the place for myself before their big day, and they were excited about it because they told me the scenery is beautiful for photography.
Well, let me tell you this… they DID NOT disappoint! Not only is it a gorgeous location, nestled into the Superstition Mountains in far east Mesa, but on the afternoon we selected, mother nature decided to bless us with an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G sky… just about every color you can imagine. And I’m NOT KIDDING YOU!
Seriously, I kept looking up in AWE. I could have just sat there and pointed my camera up to that amazing sky and mountains, reflecting the colors all afternoon long. Except for the equally gorgeous couple in front of me, LOL. (okay, now you’re getting the idea that I’m also super excited to shoot their wedding, he, he he!!!)
So, as you can see, we had a great time out there. They were the perfect photographic subjects, and we really got some amazing engagement photos complete with dramatic Arizona skies, stunning views with Arizona red rocks in the background, a perfectly manicured golf course to shoot on, some incredible natural desert shots, and we even had a native stalker trying to get in on our engagement photo shoot! Yep, the hairy guy in the last shot…
Enjoy your sneak peek Aaron and Kristen. I’ll email you soon with a link to your full gallery of images.
It was so much fun to meet with you and do your Phoenix engagement photography session! Can’t wait to do your Phoenix Arizona Wedding photography as well.
And here’s the little guy I was talking about. He and several of his friends were hanging out with us while we did our engagement photography session at Gold Canyon Ranch in East Mesa. There were literally just a few feet from us, and we didn’t even notice them there for a little while, they blend in that well to the natural desert landscape out there. Incredible! So glad I got a shot of one of them… I wonder if they’ll visit us again for the wedding photography???
