9-6-14 Grand Canyon Wedding Photographers SNWed00.jpg

Stephanie and Nathan's relationship is rooted in the Grand Canyon, so it seemed only fitting that they would choose to begin their married life together there as well.  These two were married on September 6th, 2014 at Shoshone Point.  It was still monsoon season and in true monsoon season fashion, rain danced around the canyon throughout the afternoon.  By the time guests began arriving, umbrellas were a must and it looked as though the couples' ceremony might be washed out.  At that moment the canyon put on an astonishing show as the sun peaked through, spotlighting the canyon below ... and in answer to your soon-to-be question, yes, the full double rainbow in the photo below was real!!  It left everyone speechless!!  No words could truly describe the sight.  It was one of the most beautiful moments we have ever witnessed in nature.

So, as the ceremony began, the rain cleared away and Stephanie and Nathan had their beautiful wedding on the rim of the Grand Canyon!  After, the canyon continued to dazzle as it changed colors from orange to red and finally to a lovely, soft pastel pink as the last light of day faded away!  What an amazing and memorable wedding day for these two!

Thank you Stephanie and Nathan for having us as your wedding photographers!  We had such a great time being part of your big day!!

We are always so excited when one of our images when a Fearless Award in Fearless Photographers!  They are very hard to get and it is always an honor and on top of that, the photo is one of our all time favorites from one of our all time favorite couples, Allyson and Eric :-)!  This photo was taken during their first look and it is such a sublime moment

Mary Jo and George, Ahhhh, where to begin?!?  Let me start from the beginning.  It was March, 2013 when I opened up my first email from Mary Jo inquiring about our services for her upcoming wedding in Chicago.  Mary Jo lives in Chicago so we scheduled a time to talk on the phone and after talking extensively about her plans and details for her perfect day, I asked how she heard about us.  Here is the great part :-).  Turns out Mary Jo had a friend who was a bridesmaid in a wedding we photographed in California ... in 2009!!  Wait, what, huh?!  I couldn't believe it!  She had held on to our information for 4 years and has been following us throughout that time!  Needless to say, I was speechless.  That someone would like our images so much that they would keep track of us for that length of time was a true compliment and it meant a lot.  I knew from the first phone call that this couple and their wedding was going to be a special one for us!!  Indeed it was!!

Fast forward 14 months to Memorial Day weekend 2014 and Mary Jo's dream wedding had arrived!  As soon as we met Mary Jo and George in person, we felt as though we were among old friends.  They are so sweet and easy to get along with!  We started the wedding day with Mary Jo at her parent's beautiful home.  Mary Jo's mom decorated the arbor in the front yard as a surprise for her and it brought her to tears early in the day.  Another special point about getting ready at the family home was that Mary Jo's precious pup, Dolce, was able to watch her get ready and pose with her for portraits once she was finished.  Every detail was amazing!  Her Valentino dress and cathedral length veil was gorgeous, oh and the shoes ... those awesome pink lace Valentino shoes ... LOVE!!  To top off the look, she wore a stunning diamond necklace and set of diamond earrings belonging to her mother.  Did I also mention that I became slightly obsessed with the two little flower girls?  Well, I did!  They were beyond precious in their adorable feather dresses and matching feather headbands ... soooo cute!!!

The ceremony was held at St. Vincent De Paul Roman Catholic Church in downtown Chicago.  What a stunning church!  It is on the campus of DePaul University which is very special to Mary Jo and George because that is where they first met.  They were given special permission to take a few photos in the classroom where they met.  What a great idea.

From the ceremony the entire bridal party loaded into a party-bus-style limousine to get the party started.  Get the party started it did!  On the way to the reception site the group let the alcohol flow and had a great time, making a few stops along the way to take some fun shots in the city.

The reception was held at the Bridgeport Art Center which is in a really awesome old industrial-looking building.  You know you are in for a treat when you have to take a huge freight elevator decorated with a classy white couch and a magenta-lit, art-deco style bar serving glasses of champagne with raspberries to the Skyline Loft where the event is taking place!  Once the couple's guests stepped off the freight elevator, they were not disappointed.  The Skyline Loft is a huge space lined in brick, with unparalleled views of the Chicago skyline.  The decor was nothing short of opulent!!!  We could go on and on about this space and the way it was decorated, but we will just let the photos say the rest.  Just be prepared to be wowed!  The couple danced the night away, guests had  the time of their lives, and Mary Jo and George ended the night with a perfect day they will never forget!!

Mary Jo and George, thank you both so much for having Kevin and I as your wedding photographers!  It was such a joy being a part of your special day, getting to know you both and seeing how all your plans came together with such style and beauty.  And Mary Jo, from me (Tina) to you, thank you so much for keeping our information all those years.  It really did touch my heart that you cared that much :-)!  Enjoy the sneak peak :-)!!!  xoxo, Tina & Kevin

We want to give a special thank you to our good friend and fellow photographer, Daniela, for helping out with the photo booth and we cannot say enough about Sharokina Pazand and her team at Citygirl Weddings & Events for doing such a superb job coordinating this spectacular event!!

4-4-14 Miami Destination Wedding Photographers KSWed100.jpg

Kavita and Sudeep decided to have a coast-to-coast event to celebrate their marriage.  It started at the beginning of April in posh South Beach, Miami.  The couple wanted a location with a tropical feel that would provide their guests with a weekend full of fun and relaxation that wasn't too far off the beaten path.  South Beach was the perfect solution!

The three-day event in Miami began at a private estate nestled deep in the heart of South Beach's main strip, called the Orchid House.  Though it is in the thick of the action, you would never know it once inside the property grounds.  It was surprising how quite and tranquil the setting was ... and beautiful.  Friday evening was reserved for the Mehndi Party which featured henna artists, dinner, and several wonderful dance programs.  Kavita is a very accomplished dancer and gave an outstanding performance to wrap up the night's festivities.  The following Saturday morning, the couple took part in a festive Haldi Ceremony where a mixture containing turmeric is playfully applied to the skin by various family members for beautification purposes.  Gifts are also exchanged between family members.  The wedding ceremony and brunch the following Sunday is covered in our next posting.

Part two of Kavita and Sudeep's coast-to-coast Indian wedding was held in California and it was spectacular!!  The first part, the wedding, was held in South Beach, Miami.  The second half included a two-night celebration.  On the first night they held a welcome dinner and mehndi party at Kavita's parent's home.  The second night was the reception and it took place at the gorgeous Hyatt Huntington Beach.  Kavita and Sudeep looked amazing, the ballroom decor was stunning, the weather was perfect and the entertainment for the evening was second-to-none!  Kavita loves to dance and is extremely accomplished, so it would stand to reason the theme for the evening was dance.  There were tango and salsa performances and the highlight of the evening were the electric performances by world-renowned dance group, Karmagraphy.  Kavita was invited to be a guest dancer with the group and she was simply flawless!!  Smita Mohindra of Ethnic Essence did a stellar job coordinating the reception!

Kavita and Sudeep, thank you for taking us along on your coast-to-coast wedding journey.  You both made us feel so welcomed as did your families and friends!  We had such a great time getting to know you all and wish you all the happiness in your future together!!

2-3-14 Destination Anguilla Wedding Photographers CMTTD00.jpg

The day after Cassondra and Matthew's amazing wedding at Cap Juluca Resort on the Caribbean Island of Anguilla, we headed out to explore the Island further during their Trash the Dress Session.  We wanted to incorporate some of the history of Anguilla in the shoot in addition to it's natural beauty.  This led us to a quite beach with two incredible shipwrecks!  We were told by locals that the two enormous ships were casualties of a fierce hurricane that hit the Island during the 1980's.  They certainly made for great backdrops!  What a fantastic weekend we had with a wonderful couple on a picturesque Island in the Caribbean!  Thank you both for this experience!  Enjoy!!
See Cassondra and Matthew's wedding images HERE!

2-2-14 Destination Anguilla Wedding Photographers CMWed00.jpg

When we told people we were going to Anguilla to photograph a destination wedding, for most the reaction was, huh???  It's true, many aren't familiar with the tiny Island located a mere ten miles off St. Maarten's coast in the Caribbean ... and that is precisely the point!  This charming, off-the-beaten path, spit of land is surrounded by crystal blue waters, powdery, white sand beaches and friendly locals happy to show others why they love their Island.  Lacking the tourist-trap feel, Anguilla was the perfect Caribbean Island for Cassondra and Matthew to get married and Cap Juluca Resort was the perfect venue!

We first encountered these two at a bridal show in Phoenix.  Kevin noticed Matthew looking at one of our large photos from a beach wedding and said, "I'm going to bet you are having a beach wedding?"  The answer was obviously yes, and the rest is history.  Just over a year later we were on a plane to paradise!

We love destination weddings like this - small, intimate, laid back and lots of fun!  This was what the couple wanted from their wedding and by the big smiles on their faces all day long it was obvious they were more than satisfied with their decision.  There were many personal touches, including a paisley garter in memory of Cassondra's brother, jumping the broom and having Matthew's father preside over the ceremony.  Matthew's two beautiful children were also part of the wedding party.  And of course we have to mention the reception dinner.  Lobster served by candlelight at a long table set up on the beach, complete with light ocean breezes and soft, warm sand shifting beneath your feet.  Seriously??!!  You can't get any more perfect than that!

We just loved this couple and all their family and friends.  Cassondra and Matthew, thank you for having us as your guests and wedding photographers and for allowing us to have that dining experience on the beach alongside you both :-).  Enjoy the sneak peak before we hit you with all the photos ... there are a lot :-)!!

We can't say enough wonderful things about this couple!  We just love Allyson and Eric and to think, we almost didn't get this booking.  Allyson found us on the WPJA (Wedding Photojournalist Association) under Florida listings.  We are obviously listed under Arizona, but also list ourselves under Florida because we work there frequently.  When Allyson contacted us and found out we were based in Arizona, she almost didn't email back.  Ultimately we continued talking and in the end it was meant to be and we are so glad for that!

Allyson and Eric were married January 18, 2014 at the Ancient Spanish Monastery in Miami, Florida.  This was a destination wedding for the couple and it couldn't have been a more beautiful setting.  So many things about this wedding were noteworthy, but the two things that really stood out to us were their obvious love for one another and their love for Eric's son, E.J.  During the ceremony E.J. was invited up and they all joined hands to symbolize becoming a family.  One other moment worthy of mention was the couple's "first look" ... epic!  The week of the wedding they were still wavering on their decision to see one another before the ceremony.  After some back and forth, and some coaxing from us, they finally decided to do it.  We always strive to make these meetings special, but we felt even more pressure to make this one special.  We just knew how much the moment meant to them and wanted it exceed all their expectations.  This seriously had to be the most amazing "first look" we have ever witnessed.  Allyson and Eric really took their time and basked in the moment and it was nothing short of magical.

Allyson and Eric, we are soooooo happy you two chose us as your wedding photographers!!  You were both so welcoming and inviting as were your family and friends.  We loved having the chance to get to know you both better.  Enjoy the sneak peak :-)!!  xoxo ~ Tina and Kevin

1-2-14 Destination Wedding Photographers 2013BestOf1000.jpg

Another year has come and gone ... it goes by so quickly!  Year eight of our business brought with it more travel and some wonderful advances and changes!  We started out the year with a destination wedding in San Francisco, California and ended it with a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico.  We also enjoyed photographing a traditional Navajo wedding on the Navajo Nation, which is always a deep privilege!  We scaled back a little this year and photographed 32 weddings.  The extra time was spent working on a new business called Nature's Album by Sierra Blanco.  This business is dedicated to the nature end of our work, offering fine art landscape and wildlife prints and nature photography workshops.  It is an exciting new venture for Kevin and I that we are thrilled to finally launch!  You can view our nature photography on our new website.

The biggest change of all though centers around our wedding photography business.  Kevin and I (Tina) have always been the primary photographers.  Angie joined us four years ago and starting taking her own weddings through us a couple of years ago, but only sporadically.  This year Meg joined us and she has been working very hard to learn the ropes and our unique style of journalistic wedding photography.  With the launch of 2014, Sierra Blanco Photography is now officially a boutique wedding photography studio of four!  We now have four photographers to choose from, myself and Kevin, and Angie and Meg.  This will allow us to offer our clients more options, which we love!  Angie and Meg are both amazing photographers and blend seamlessly into our "family" and we are so excited to have them and proud to have them represent our name!

We want to thank all our 2013 couples for having us as their wedding photographers and trusting us with one of the most important days of their lives!  It is always an honor to be a part of such a meaningful event and we never want to take that for granted.  Eight years in, we still LOVE what we do and we are looking forward to our ninth year of business and a rewarding and fun 2014!  These are our pics for the Best of 2013 ... always a difficult task to choose from so many wonderful moments.  They are comprised of images taken by Tina, Kevin, Angie and Meg.  Enjoy!

1-2-14 Destination Wedding Photographers 2013BestOf2000.jpg

Another year has come and gone ... it goes by so quickly!  Year eight of our business brought with it more travel and some wonderful advances and changes!  We started out the year with a destination wedding in San Francisco, California and ended it with a destination wedding in Cancun, Mexico.  We also enjoyed photographing a traditional Navajo wedding on the Navajo Nation, which is always a deep privilege!  We scaled back a little this year and photographed 32 weddings.  The extra time was spent working on a new business called Nature's Album by Sierra Blanco.  This business is dedicated to the nature end of our work, offering fine art landscape and wildlife prints and nature photography workshops.  It is an exciting new venture for Kevin and I that we are thrilled to finally launch!  You can view our nature photography on our new website.

The biggest change of all though centers around our wedding photography business.  Kevin and I (Tina) have always been the primary photographers.  Angie joined us four years ago and starting taking her own weddings through us a couple of years ago, but only sporadically.  This year Meg joined us and she has been working very hard to learn the ropes and our unique style of journalistic wedding photography.  With the launch of 2014, Sierra Blanco Photography is now officially a boutique wedding photography studio of four!  We now have four photographers to choose from, myself and Kevin, and Angie and Meg.  This will allow us to offer our clients more options, which we love!  Angie and Meg are both amazing photographers and blend seamlessly into our "family" and we are so excited to have them and proud to have them represent our name!

We want to thank all our 2013 couples for having us as their wedding photographers and trusting us with one of the most important days of their lives!  It is always an honor to be a part of such a meaningful event and we never want to take that for granted.  Eight years in, we still LOVE what we do and we are looking forward to our ninth year of business and a rewarding and fun 2014!  These are our pics for the Best of 2013 ... always a difficult task to choose from so many wonderful moments.  They are comprised of images taken by Tina, Kevin, Angie and Meg.  Enjoy!

Alyshia and Timone chose to have an exotic destination wedding in gorgeous Riviera Maya, Mexico, surrounded by their baby daughter and their closest friends and family.  The beach wedding was held at the Azul Sensatori on October 6th, 2013.  This wedding was an absolute ball to work at and we had such a great time getting to know everyone involved.  The day was hot with plenty of humidity to go around, but thankfully, the clouds moved in just in time for the ceremony to provide a little bit of relief.

Alyshia and Timone, thank you so much for having us as your wedding photographers!  You were all a delight to work with and we had such a great time.  Enjoy the sneak peak :-)!!

Where do we start!  This wedding was spectacular and we adore the bride and groom!  Anna and Andrew were married at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, California on January 26th, 2013.  There theme was "Under the Sea" and they carried it off in grand style.  The reception ballroom gave the feeling you were swimming in the sea as the entire room was bathed in cool-blue lighting.  And then there was the cake ... how can you not like the cake, complete with two adorable "Nemo" type bride and groom clown fish kissing as the cake topper, complete with veil and top hat - LOVE!!

This was a Russian wedding to celebrate Anna's heritage.  A lot of fun for sure!  As Anna put it, "Russian weddings are A LOT OF DANCING AND A LOT OF DRINKING!!!"  She was right about that, and there was also a lot of food and A LOT of caviar :-)!!  We think the pictures do the day justice and are going to let them speak for the day's events.  There are two parts to this posting so be sure to check out both to see the full story.  Thank you Anna and Andrew for having us as your wedding photographers!  This was a truly magical day and we were so pleased to be a part of it!  Love you guys and enjoy the sneak peak!  xoxo

We also need to make special mention of the incredible job that Inna and Anna of Any Occasion did coordinating this grand wedding event and bringing it all together for Anna and Andrew!

Where do we start!  This wedding was spectacular and we adore the bride and groom!  Anna and Andrew were married at the Ritz Carlton in San Francisco, California on January 26th, 2013.  There theme was "Under the Sea" and they carried it off in grand style.  The reception ballroom gave the feeling you were swimming in the sea as the entire room was bathed in cool-blue lighting.  And then there was the cake ... how can you not like the cake, complete with two adorable "Nemo" type bride and groom clown fish kissing as the cake topper, complete with veil and top hat - LOVE!!

This was a Russian wedding to celebrate Anna's heritage.  A lot of fun for sure!  As Anna put it, "Russian weddings are A LOT OF DANCING AND A LOT OF DRINKING!!!"  She was right about that, and there was also a lot of food and A LOT of caviar :-)!!  We think the pictures do the day justice and are going to let them speak for the day's events.  There are two parts to this posting so be sure to check out both to see the full story.  Thank you Anna and Andrew for having us as your wedding photographers!  This was a truly magical day and we were so pleased to be a part of it!  Love you guys and enjoy the sneak peak!  xoxo

We also need to make special mention of the incredible job that Inna and Anna of Any Occasion did coordinating this grand wedding event and bringing it all together for Anna and Andrew!

Best12P101.jpg

We wanted to take the time to congratulate all of our amazing couples who were married in 2012 and thank them for entrusting their precious memories to us and having us as their wedding photographers!  From the bottom of our hearts, you were all wonderful and it was a joy working with each and every one of you!

We had the fortune to photograph 43 beautiful weddings this past year!  They took us all over Arizona and beyond.  2012 took us to Kauai, Hawaii; Boulder, Colorado; Florida two times - Orlando and Miami; Maryland two times - just outside of Washington D.C. and just outside of Baltimore; California three times - San Diego, Newport Beach, and San Francisco; and my home state of North Carolina for my cousin's wedding.  Needless to say, narrowing down the images was quite a task.  We finally arrived at 148 total which has been split into two parts.  The images represent the work of all photographers - Tina, Kevin and Angie.  We hope you enjoy looking through the images as much as we enjoyed creating them!

8-1-12 Grand Canyon Wedding Photographers ADWed00.jpg

We are so fortunate to be based in Arizona where we occasionally have the opportunity to photograph a wedding somewhere as majestic as the Grand Canyon!  And no spot at the south rim is more awe-inspiring than Shoshone Point.

This is where Abby and David, who drove all the way out from Iowa, chose to have there intimate wedding.  Standing at what looks like the edge of the Earth, they said their vows in front of their closest family and friends, while David's three adorable boys took part.  Their big day took place at the height of monsoon season, but couldn't have been more beautiful.  The monsoon gave them the gift of stunning cloud formations with no rain ... just perfect!

7-15-12 Destination Wedding Photographers MKWed00.jpg

This was a beautiful wedding we photographed this past summer and we just couldn't let it pass without posting it!  Melanie and Kyle were married aboard a yacht named Athena on a sunset cruise of Newport Bay in Newport Beach, California.  We had actually just flown in on the redeye from a wedding in Kauai, Hawaii early that morning.  Luckily, with it being a sunset wedding, we were able to catch a little shut eye before the big event.  It was simply stunning and the sunset didn't disappoint.  Throughout the rest of the evening, Melanie and Kyle's guests were treated to a cruise around the bay while enjoying dinner and dancing ... simply magical!

Sarah and Justin were married at Sarah's childhood home and working farm, Leistikow Farms, located just outside Boulder in Lafayette, Colorado.  It was a beautiful day and the reception just added to the magic.  The food was supplied by the farm and consisted of everything from lamb to goat and more.  It was delicious!  The party was a big part of this day and it rocked late into the night!  Be sure to check out Part 1 of this wedding to see the whole story!

wow these are amazing! I'm from the other side of the pond in England and wanted a peek to see how it is done in the usa. These are exceptional! You control the light really well. I bet the bride and groom love these.

Sarah and Justin were married in late June, 2012 and we were so pleased to be a part of it!  This wedding was actually a referral from one of Sarah's bridesmaids, Aicha, who coincidentally was also a bridesmaid at Bebe's wedding in Nigeria, which is where we originally met.  It seems we run into Aicha in the most far flung places :-).

Sarah and Justin currently live in Los Angeles, California but chose to hold their wedding at Sarah's childhood home, a working farm called Leistikow Farms in Lafayette, Colorado, just outside Boulder and under the watchful eye of the stunning Rocky Mountain Range.  The couple has been together for some years now and have a beautiful baby boy named Everett.  They decided the time was finally right to make it official.

The wedding day was lovely, though hot ... like record breaking kind of hot!  The high the day of the wedding topped out at 105 degrees, the hottest recorded temperature in Lafayette's history.  We were so excited to be leaving the heat of Phoenix behind to head to the cooler climates of Colorado ... oh well, it was still stunning :-).  There were also several forest fires going on at the time, including the horrible fire that destroyed many homes and blackened forests for miles around Colorado Springs.  It seemed everywhere you looked on the horizon was another large plume of threatening smoke rearing it's ugly head.  Fortunately, the fires and smoke stayed at bay and the wedding went off without a hitch.  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers and inviting us to your family's wonderful farm!  We had a great time!!

Kimberly, aka Kimmi, and Mark were married Labor Day weekend in Sedona.  Their wedding was held at Sedona Golf Resort and their reception took place at The Hilton Sedona Resort and Spa.  Though the weather looked ominous just before the ceremony, it lifted and headed out just in time.  This was a beautifully elegant wedding with the cutest bulldog in a tutu you have ever seen :-)!  Thank you Kimmi and Mark for having us as your wedding photographers.  You were a true joy to work with!!

A special thank you to Corey Schwartz who did an amazing job second shooting this wedding!

10-7-12 Destination Wedding Photographers KMTTD00.jpg

The day after their wedding I met back up with Kelli and Michael to photograph their trash the dress shoot.  Amazing the difference a day makes.  On their wedding day it was sunny and almost 90 degrees.  Not on this day!  A weather front moved through overnight and I woke up that morning to thunderstorms, pouring rain and cold temperatures.  Luckily the rain moved on, however it didn't get out of the 50's all day.

We still had a great time despite the weather, though it did put a kink in Kelli's idea to get in the water :-).  We started at Enoch Winery, where they had their reception, and did some portraits with their adorable corgi pooch.  We then headed over to their farm and mingled with the cows and one very affectionate donkey named Dolly.  Ahhh, Dolly, how I love thee :-).  Seriously, Dolly took a real shine to me and I quickly feel in love with her.  If I could have smuggled her home on the plane, I'm afraid Kelli and Michael would have come home from their honeymoon to a missing Donkey :-).  After that we headed to a sprawling, country property owned by the father of one of Kelli's bridesmaids and played in the woods for a while.  We had a fantastic time ... just too bad it was too cold to get into the water.  I think the results are just as good without the water shots though.  Great shoot you two!!

This posting is very special and dear to my heart!  Kelli and Michael were married in my wonderful home state of North Carolina.  I am from Raleigh and the wedding took place about forty-five minutes southeast in Benson, where Kelli grew up.  Benson is a very small farming community that has changed very little since I was a child.  It is also special to me as it is where my mother grew up and where my grandmother and great-grandmother have lived their entire lives.  I have many fond memories of staying there in my childhood and being surrounded by fields of tobacco and lots and lots of pigs, which is what my grandparents used to farm.  I have always loved animals and took a lot of delight in riding with my grandfather to see all the little baby piglets!

As you may have guessed by now, this wedding relates to my family :-).  Kelli is my cousin ... there are only three of us on my mother's side, myself, Kelli and Lee.  We are all only children.  Kelli and Lee are especially close as they grew up practically next door to each other and they are close in age.  Me, I'm a bit older than they are and I left North Carolina when they were still children, but I have still been fortunate to see them at special family events throughout the years and I was so thrilled when Kelli asked me to photograph her wedding!  I am the type that would much rather be photographing the wedding than be a "guest" so I was very pleased.

Kelli and Michael's ceremony took place at Stones Creek Advent Christian Church and the reception was held at Enoch Winery on October 6th, 2012.  The night before, Kelli's matron-of-honor went into labor and gave birth to a beautiful baby girl.  Of course Kelli was thrilled, but also a bit nervous for what other wrenches might be thrown into the wedding.  Fortunately the big day couldn't have been any better ... sunny and warm and everything else went off without a hitch ... except for the late limo driver, but he wasn't too late and Kelli and Michael didn't sweat it too much.  A candle wrapped in a pink ribbon was placed on the stage during the ceremony in the location Kelli's matron-of-honor would have been standing in honor of her and her new baby.  I gave Kelli my veil to wear as her "something borrowed" and it couldn't have gone any more perfectly with her dress.  She looked radiant!

Kelli and Michael, thank you so much for asking me to do this!  It was so wonderful having a chance to do what I love to do surrounded by familiar faces and people I love.  My mom even stopped me at the end of the ceremony and told me what a great job I was doing :-).  It just made me happy for her to finally see what I do behind the photos she looks at all the time.

Love you Kelli!  And Michael, welcome to the family :-)!  Hope you enjoy the sneak peak!

This is our little family portrait.  I was a little stupid and didn't think about the fact that I would be in photos so this is not me at my best, but that's okay :-).  From left to right, my Aunt Janet and her son, Lee, my grandmother, Kelli of course, her mother and my Aunt Billie, my mother and me.

The weekend after Leah and Josh's wedding, we headed back to San Francisco , new gear in hand :-), to photograph their "day-after" shoot.  We moved our way throughout downtown San Francisco, then into the nearby Muir Woods, and finally back into the city again.  It was a lovely day overall, however it was windy and it was quite shocking to us Phoenicians how cold it can get in San Francisco in June, especially as the light of day faded :-).  Thank you both so much for a wonderful day, we had such a great time exploring!

Leah and Josh were married May 26th, 2012 in downtown San Francisco, California!  Their ceremony was held at Fay Park and their reception took place at the San Francisco Art Institute.  It was a lovely day and the weather could not have been any better, sunny and warm ... by San Francisco standards :-).

Just before this wedding (one hour to be exact) the unexpected happened and Kevin and I had one of the worst experiences of our lives.  All, and I mean ALL, our photography equipment was stolen.  It was horrible but I don't want to focus on that in this posting (read more in our next posting specifically written for that.)  Instead, we want to focus on how this wonderful couple and their amazing families and friends helped to pull us through such a gut-wrenching experience.  All it took was being in the presence of their warm personalities and witnessing the love and deep caring they all so clearly have for one another.  This wedding was full of much laughter and tears and it warmed our hearts and restored our spirits and most importantly renewed our faith in something we weren't sure if we still had after such a violation ... our faith in humanity and the good that most of us harbor as human beings.  Thank you all for that.  It was an honor to be a part of your wedding day!

We also want to extend a very special thank you to Leah and Josh's Wedding Coordinator, Vera Devera and her husband of Va de Vie Events.  Without their help we would not have been able to move on and photograph this wedding.  They graciously drove us all the way across the city, on a busy holiday weekend no less, so we could purchase new equipment.  Thank you both so much ... you really did save the day!!

Funny thing about how we first came to know this couple.  Maya and Spencer were on vacation from South Florida when they happened upon us conducting a trash the dress shoot with past clients, Kendra and Kyle, at Red Rock Crossing in Sedona.  They were, as most are who have never seen one of these sessions before, very curious to what we were doing photographing this couple in their wedding attire in red, muddy water.  We quickly explained that this was a session for couples to do after their wedding day to get images that are way outside the box ... most figuring they will never do anything with their dress again anyhow, so they may as well have some fun with it!

We saw a slight spark in Maya's eye at that moment as she exclaimed, "How true ... my wedding dress has been hanging in our closet, doing nothing, for almost ten years now!"  With that, she asked who we were and her and Spencer headed on their way.  We figured we would never see them again.

About a week later we received an email from Maya.  With much enthusiasm she explained that she had been to our website and loved our trash the dress photos.  She asked if we would be willing to fly to Miami the following year to photograph a trash the dress shoot for her and Spencer for their ten year anniversary.  With that we booked the date and headed off to South Florida this past July!

We had an amazing time getting to know Maya and Spencer, and their two beautiful daughters, Adelyn and Emma, as we spent the entire day cruising to various spots from Hollywood Beach near Ft. Lauderdale; to the amazing art of the Wynwood Walls in Miami; to Bill Baggs State Park in Key Biscayne.  Maya wore her original wedding dress, though she did some alterations to make it a bit more modern and both she and Spencer were full of energy and excitement all day long.  What a great idea for a ten year anniversary!  Happy 10 years and here's to a lifetime more!  Thank you both so much for having us.  We very much enjoyed getting to know you and your family and we just love you guys to death :-)!!

The day after Bethany and Michael's wedding at Kauai Coast Resort in Kauai, Hawaii, we headed out to photograph their trash the dress session.  We literally drove from one end of the island to another in search of the most scenic places to shoot and I think the photos are proof that we found them!  Kauai is nothing but one endless, stunning vista after another and we definitely made use of them.  This couple was fearless and we had the best time doing this session!  Again, thank you both for the experience and for spending the day with us and trusting in our location-scouting choices :-)!

Bethany and Michael were married July 12th, 2012 in Kauai, Hawaii!  They chose Kauai Coast Resort as the site of their wedding and it did not disappoint.  With stunning views of crystal blue waters and lush green mountains in the distance, it was hard to go wrong.  We had the best time with this couple and their close family and friends and were so pleased to be chosen as their wedding photographers!  Thank you both so much!  Wait until you see their trash the dress shoot ... WOW!!

Kendell and Chris were married at the spectacular Mormon Temple in San Diego, California on May 17th, 2012.  Many of their lose family and friends traveled from all across the United States to share in the couple's wedding day.  Just after Kendell and Chris emerged from the Temple a bank of low clouds rolled in, but it didn't put a damper on the day.  In fact, the photos actually benefited from the look, as Kendell wanted a vintage theme for her wedding and the weather added a nostalgic feel, especially to the photos taken on the cliffs above the ocean.  Two days later the couple held a reception in their hometown of Chandler, Arizona, which will be posted in Part 2 of their wedding.  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers!  We had such an great time!

We also have to mention what an amazing job Jessica Gelder of Sweet Soiree did with coordinating and planning this event!

For Kennesha's bridal session, we headed to Washington D.C.  We first stopped by the capital to grab some shots (I was surprised by the amount of seagulls hanging out around the frozen water feature out front :-)) and then moved on to the mall to finish up with more emblematic monuments used as backdrops, including the new Martin Luther King Jr. Memorial (Nesha was so excited about those photos :-).)  It was cold for sure that day in early January, but it was so much fun!!  Thanks for playing along Nesha ... you were stunning!!

I just had to make sure and blog this wedding!  I first met Kennesha (I call her Nesha) a couple of years back while photographing my friend, Brittany's wedding in Orlando, Florida.  Nesha is one of Brittany's best friends (she traveled from her home state of Maryland for the wedding) and she tagged along with us for Brittany's bridal session.  It was memorable for Nesha because it was the first time in her life she had ever been to the ocean!  I thought it was so sweet how excited she was ... just like a child seeing it for the first time :-)!  I told her when it was her time to get married to call.

Fast forward a couple of years and sure enough I got that call!  I was soooo excited she remembered.  Kennesha and her wonderful husband, Ben, were married at their church on January 7th, 2012 in Maryland.  Afterwards we headed over to the University of Maryland Campus to take formal photos.  The campus grounds were beautiful and made for a stunning backdrop.  The couple also got very lucky in the way of weather!  It was unseasonably warm that day and felt almost spring-like.

Thank you Nesha and Ben for having me as a part of your wedding day!  It meant the world to me :-)!

2011Best00.jpg

So finally, here it is  - the BEST OF 2011!!  I know this is late in coming, but quite frankly it was a hell of a year!  I really am at a loss for words to describe a year like the one we had in 2011.  It was amazing, enlightening, surreal, beautiful, humbling, tiring, frustrating and maddening all rolled into one, but if I had to describe it in one word it would be ... SPECTACULAR!!

To be honest I can't imagine there being another year quite like this one.  We had 51 weddings in 2011, 3 of which were multi-day cultural events, 7 of which were destination weddings (in other words, not in the state of Arizona) with 3 of those taking place in Mexico, 1 in Europe and 1 in Africa.  All told we traveled to Moab, Utah for a rustic, wild-west wedding, Napa Valley, California for a lovely wine-country wedding, Puerto Penasco for an authentic Mexican wedding, Riviera Maya (Cancun) for a colorful Nigerian/Indian wedding, Cabo San Lucas for a spirited Eritrean wedding, Rome for a romantic wedding at the Vatican and finally Nigeria for a spectacular three-day long Nigerian wedding event!  On top of that we had weddings throughout Arizona including Tucson, Phoenix, Sedona, Flagstaff, Lake Powell and Monument Valley.

The only way I knew to narrow the selections down for this posting was to choose one photo per wedding or event day ... no easy task I assure you.  The following consists of 72 photos, taken from each wedding or each day of the wedding event and also includes an image from each trash the dress shoot and personal shoot we did relating to weddings.  For the sake of keeping the number of images under control we did not include engagement shoots and portrait shoots.

To sum things up simply - 2011 for us was what we have always dreamed of ... doing what we love and in the process having the opportunity to experience new and exotic locations and learning about new cultures and how they celebrate one of life's most joyful events!  What a privilege :-)!

Thank you to all our amazing couples from 2011 for enriching our lives in so many wonderful and varying ways!

The final part of Bebe and Dagogo's three day Nigerian wedding event was the White Wedding held on December 17th, 2011.  It took place in Port Harcourt and it was magnificent!  Bebe wore a stunning dress designed by Enzoani, shoes by Jimmy Choo and jewelry by Swarovski.  Some of Nigeria's most acclaimed singers and recording artists were on hand to serenade the couple and Kings and Chiefs were among some of the approximately 1500 guests.  Again, we can not express enough how amazing it was to travel to Africa for this beautiful event!  Thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers!

Day two of Bebe and Dagogo's amazing event was reserved for the Traditional Wedding!  It was held in their home city of Port Harcourt, Nigeria, Africa.  It was extremely interesting to see the entire day unfold.  Bebe had multiple outfit changes that were required and every item that traded hands at the main table, every piece of fabric, the lanterns, jewelry, headpieces, everything had a purpose and a meaning.  It was a beautiful day and Bebe's jewelry and all the outfits were stunning!

We don't even know how to describe this experience.  It was an incredibly unique opportunity that we feel so blessed to have been given!

Biobele and Dagogo, otherwise known as Bebe and Dags, held their spectacular three day long wedding in Nigeria, Africa, and we were fortunate enough to be found and hired by them to travel halfway across the world to photograph it!!  Dags lives in Austin, Texas, and works with a former client of ours, Tunde (of Tunde and Neha who were married in Cancun last June.)  After seeing Tunde's wedding photographs, he contacted us and the rest is history.  Before we knew it we were on a very, very long plane ride to Africa.

I (Tina) have been to East Africa several times and was so excited to return to this beautiful continent to experience another side of it.  I do have to admit though, the more we read up on the current events happening in Nigeria, we did get a bit concerned.  We were headed to the oil-rich southern region of Nigeria known as the Rivers State.  The area is known for it's kidnappings of foreigners, mostly of those working for the oil companies, however anyone visiting the area is thought to be working for the oil companies so this put us at some risk.

Once there though, the fear faded and we found ourselves in the company of many very gracious people.  Our base was Port Harcourt, but the first wedding day took place in Buguma City on December 9th, 2011.  It celebrated the Kalabari Culture and is known as the Iya Traditional Marriage, the highest level wedding in the culture.

Due to the kidnapping danger we did not do any sightseeing during our stay, therefore most of our experiences of the area, it's people and their culture was gleaned from the wedding days.  The first day, being in a smaller city where we literally paraded through the streets, gave us our best opportunities to capture images not only of the events surrounding the wedding, but the local people and street scenes as well.  For that reason, this post is extra large as we have blended the wedding with the local street scenes as this was actually the way the day unfolded.

Coverage throughout this entire three day event was very photojournalistic with little in the way of posed photos (though there were some.)  The pace was high energy and hectic, days were long and there was a lot to cover.  In addition there were several other local photographers involved as well as several videographers, so it often felt like we were jockeying for position amongst the paparazzi :-).  By far, it was one of the most challenging weddings we have ever covered and we loved every minute of it!  We love cultural weddings - the colors, energy and heightened emotions are what we thrive off of - and to be able to photography a wedding like this in its country of origin is beyond words!  Bebe and Dagogo, thank you for trusting enough in our vision to have us travel such a monumental distance to be your wedding photographers.  We loved having a chance to experience your country and culture from an insiders perspective.  It was an experience we will hold dear to us the rest of our lives ... thank you both for that!!  Enjoy!

Today was the first of several wedding ceremonies we are photographing for Bebe and Dagogo in Nigeria, Africa.  This was called the Iya Traditional Marriage and involved Dagogo and his family traveling to Bebe's village to receive approval from the village Chief.  We had such an amazing experience immersing ourselves in the local culture and everyone was so welcoming and kind ... there are really no words for an experience like this :-)!  Simply beautiful!  Much more to come on this ceremony and the wedding as a whole!

The day after their elopement, Keary and Jesse headed back out into the great unknown to do their Trash the Dress shoot.  We first went to Antelope Canyon, which is spectacular beyond words.  It's landscape of deep red carved walls are the definition of art in nature.  We were so glad they were up for this suggestion.  Not only have we always wanted to do a trash the dress shoot in Antelope Canyon, but it provided Keary and Jesse with truly unique wedding photographs that very few people can say they have.  From there we headed out to Horseshoe Bend and finished in the water at Lake Powell.  Simply a magical day :-)!

I just got done editing these photos and had to do a posting for these two - after all Keary is a self-admitted blog stalker, so how could I deny her seeing her own wedding on here :-).  Keary and Jesse eloped back in September at the Coves at Lake Powell, Arizona.  These two came all the way from Massachusetts to the wide open spaces of the west to get married and it was a very long road for them to get here - in every sense of the word.  We couldn't be more happy that they finally traveled that road and that they allowed us to be a part of it!  Keary and Jesse, it was so wonderful spending those two warm late-September days getting to know you both.  We had a wonderful time and wish you both a lifetime of happiness!!

The day after Liz and Danny's wedding, we headed back out into the streets of Rome to photograph their trash the dress session,  We went to many of the historic sights, including the Colosseum, the Ancient City and the Spanish Steps and we finished up with a nice lunch, Italy-style - yum :-)!!

Liz and Danny's reception took place at the Rome Cavalieri Waldorf Astoria Hotel and was magical!  The hotel was stunning beyond words and the hotel suite, a 2500+ square foot gem - the hotel's largest - was jaw-dropping in its beauty and was given to them by the hotl for two nights as a wedding gift ... WOW!  The reception dinner was nothing short of superb.  A seven course meal fit for kings that took 4 hours to finish and Liz and Danny and their families were kind enough to include us at this exquisite meal!  Again, Liz and Danny, you welcomed us in and treated us like family and we still can't thank you enough for giving us this opportunity!

On October 11th, 2011, Elizabeth and Daniel (Liz and Danny) were married in a dream catholic ceremony at St. Anna church in Vatican City, Rome, Italy in front of their close family and friends and we were fortunate enough to be there to photograph it!

A lot of people have asked us how we got this wedding and well, luck played a large part in it for us :-). Liz and Danny live in Phoenix and had hired us some time back to photograph there wedding which was to originally be held in the valley.  One day, I got an email from Liz telling us that this wasn't what she wanted for her wedding, so they would still need us for the reception but would be getting married in Italy instead.  I responded with, well you know we travel right???  She responded back with, are you serious ... you would travel to Rome to photograph a wedding??!!  She was ecstatic and so were we!!!  Once it was finalized, I think we must have jumped and screamed until we lost our voices :-)!  And so the rest was history!

This was one of those once-in-a-lifetime events in a wedding photographer's career that we usually only hope for and usually know will never come to pass.  Liz and Danny, we wish to thank you (and your wonderful family) for including us in your fairytale!  It was beyond anything we could have envisioned and you provided us with poignant memories that will stay with us for the rest of our lives!  It was truly stunning and we wish you all the very best life has to offer!  When in Rome ... right - now let's all head back :-)!!  Enjoy the sneak peak!

10-15-11 Travel Photography Italy Venice00.jpg

After leaving the Dolomite Mountains, we headed to our final destination before departing Italy - Venice!  I have ALWAYS wanted to go to Venice!  I just knew I would love all the colors, masks, pigeons :-), gondolas and waterways.  It did not disappoint!  We arrived at sunset on the first day and spent the rest of the night walking around the old city.  All the small alleyways and canals added to the mystery and intrigue of the place.  It was like stepping back into Victorian times ... simply breathtaking!

10-14-11 Travel Photography Italy Dolomites00.jpg

After leaving Tuscany, we continued north to the Dolomite Mountains.  Their beauty was immense and staggering beyond words!  We loved everything about this region.  From our amazing hotel, to the shear grandeur of the peaks surrounding us, to the melodic sounds of cow bells ringing across open meadows, to the crisp autumn air, this was the kind of place that fills your soul with peace ... it was magical!  On our last night, we took a chairlift to the top of the mountain and hiked back down into town at sunset.  Along the way, we encountered a really sweet cow (I named her Bessy - original I know :-)) who joined us on our walk.  She was so sweet she even licked me ... I have never been licked by a cow :-).  We just loved this place!

10-12-11 Travel Photography Italy Tuscany00.jpg

After we left Rome, we drove north into Tuscany.  We spent a couple of days exploring the Chianti region.  Before we left, I had seen a photo in our guide book of a cart filled with old chianti flasks and decided I had to find it and photograph it myself.  Kevin said there was no way I would find that cart and I have to admit that I wasn't too confident I would either.  We didn't plan on exact places to stay on this part of the trip, instead opting to just find somewhere along the way.  We found a really charming B&B in an old hamlet for our overnight stay and what do you think was sitting right in front of me ... that exact cart I had seen in the guide book!!  I was so happy and proud of myself ... though I guess a little luck didn't hurt :-)!

10-10-11 Travel Photography Italy Rome00.jpg

A couple of weeks ago we headed over to Italy for a wedding / vacation!  Our first stop was Rome, where the wedding took place.  We spent three days there, most of which was related to the wedding, so we only had a small bit of time to take personal photos.  We did however, have time on the last evening to go to the Ancient City and the Colosseum, which were spectacular!  It is really humbling to stand in the shadow of an ancient world rich in so much history!

It is always an honor to place in the WPJA quarterly competitions as I am competing against some of the best wedding photographers in the world!  This time though it was humbling for me.  I garnered my very first 1st PLACE AWARD this time and was so elated!!  The winning image placed 1st in the SILHOUETTES AND SHADOWS category and was taken at Brooke and Ryan's wedding this past April at Arcosanti in Arizona.  I also won 14th PLACE in the same category for an image I took at Theresa and Chris's wedding at V. Sattui Winery in Napa, CA back in May of this year.

I am always honored to place in the ISPWP competitions!  I placed 9th in the EMOTIONAL IMPACT Category in the ISPWP Summer 2011 Contest with a beautiful moment captured at Neha and Tunde's wedding of Tunde and his brother emotionally hugging after a toast.

The day after the wedding we headed out to a beautiful beach we had scouted when we first arrived in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico, to photograph Senait and Ilya's trash the dress shoot.  The shoot was amazing (aside from the fact the I got horribly burnt, but we won't go there because I was stupid and didn't put on sunscreen :-)) and came complete with an awesome 1800's pirate ship pulling into the bay behind us ... what a perfect prop!!  After the shoot we finished at the Me Cabo Resort with a photo shoot of everyone in their Eritrean wedding attire.  Again, thank you both so much ... this was such an amazing experience for us!

Senait and Ilya were married on July 9th, 2011 in a stunning wedding at the Me Cabo Resort in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico!  We love photographing destination weddings as it is, but when you add in two unbelievably beautiful people and a reception full of cultural dance, we pretty much hit the trifecta of weddings!  This posting has been split into two parts beause there was just way too much to put into one posting.

Senait is of Eritrean descent (Eritrea is a country located in East Africa, bordering Ethiopia) and Eritrean customs were played out throughout the reception.  The whole experience was magical and one we will long remember!  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers for your exotic destination wedding.  You were a joy to get to know!  Enjoy the sneak peak and wait to you see the trash the dress photos!!

Senait and Ilya's celebration went well into the night and included many customs and dances from Senait's country of descent, Eritrea.  We love photographing cultural weddings and receptions!  They are always so colorful and festive and this one did not disappoint.  This destination was simply amazing and we were so please to be included!  Thank you both so much and enjoy!
