3-5-11 Phoenix Wedding Photographer MJWed00.jpg

 

Megan and Jason were married on March 5th, 2011 at the historic Orpheum Lofts Penthouse in downtown Phoenix.  This was such a beautiful wedding, full of vintage style!  They began their preparations at the San Carlos Hotel, another old, historic building downtown.  Megan wore a birdcage veil - very appropriate - and a pair of AWESOME Betsey Johnson shoes!

 

One note to student photographers out there ... it is considered very poor form, not to mention plain rude, to walk up behind a professional photographer and begin taking photos of a bride and groom on their wedding day, without asking permission from either party!!!  This is a very true story and the couple got very upset with this stranger taking the liberty of snapping their photos.  What's more, when the groom, and myself, told him in no uncertain terms to stop, he continued to follow us and take more photos.  It should go without saying, but this is a GIANT no-no!!

 

OK, moving on ... the day was amazing and the setting stunning!  By the way, as a gift to all his groomsmen, Jason presented each of them with their very own black-powder pistol.  I don't know much about guns, but I know enough to know these were very special gifts given to obviously very dear friends!  Thank you both so much for having us as your wedding photographers and allowing us to share in your special day ... enjoy the sneak peak!

Megan Seyfert:

I love these photos! They are incredible! Thank you so much for being there to capture our wedding day. The three of you did an amazing job and I can't express enough how happy I am with how the "sneak peak" pictures turned out. I can't wait to see the rest of the pictures! I enjoyed the photo shoot and would love to do more. Thanks for helping me feel beautiful.

A couple of years back, we photographed the wedding of a couple named Heather and Matt.  Since that time, they have become regular clients of ours as well as really good friends!  Well, now we have a new Heather and Matt.  They call themselves the "other Heather and Matt" and we love these two just as much ... just seems to be something with those names that we really get along with :-).

 

Anyhow, the "other Heather and Matt" were married this past Saturday in Scottsdale.  Their ceremony took place at Paradise Valley Methodist Church and their reception was held at McCormick Ranch Golf Club.  If anyone in Arizona was alive and awake that day, they know that the weather was horrible everywhere, with snow in the high country and a lot of rain in the valley, but that didn't stop this couple from having their perfect day!  They went into the dreary day with high hopes for a better outcome later in the afternoon, and if not, they figured, oh well, they would have unique photos of a rainy wedding - something most couples don't see often on their wedding day in Arizona.

 

Boy, did they ever get unique photos!!  It did continue to rain ... but at the same time came the sun and you know what that produces ... big, vibrant, full, double rainbows that dominate the sky!!  WOW ... SPECTACULAR!!!  Thank you both for having us as your wedding photographers and thanks for trusting in our vision and taking a moment at the end to step outside in the rain for a few more portraits (see photo above) ... told you it would be worth it!  Hope you love the sneak peak and have a fabulous time in Thailand!!

 

Special thanks to Gretchen at Imoni Events, www.imonievents.com , for putting together such a beautiful event, and to our Associate Photographer, Angie, for helping out and getting some great pics :-)!!

4-4-10 Trash The Dress Photography KSTTD01.jpg

 

Kelly and Steve contacted us last spring to do a Trash the Dress Shoot for them.  They had recently been married out of state (we didn't photograph their wedding) and while they loved their wedding photos, they felt they were lacking in the "creative couple formals" area.  They also wanted to incorporate their adorable bulldog puppy into the shoot ... he was so freakin cute :-)!!!  We headed out to the Superstition Mountain Range east of Phoenix and it turned into a super fun, amazing session!

HOW CUTE IS THIS PUPPY :-)!!!!

This looks worse than it is ... we all thought he was peeing on the dress, especially Kelly, as you can gather by her expression, but he changed his mind.  Kelly said she wanted to trash the dress, but not quite that much :-).

Caitlin and Dave really wanted a trash the dress shoot along with their package and we are so glad they did!!  We headed out to the Superstition Mountains east of Phoenix and had an amazing session which, as usual with our trash the dress shoots, ended in water!  Thanks you two for trusting us to create these wonderful shots and for following us down every dirt road back there to locate the ever elusive "water trees" :-).

This posting has been a while in coming.  Recently Caitlin received her album and emailed to thank us for everything.  She said she was so delighted with everything we had done for her but was kind of bummed she never made it on the blog.  We reassured her that both her wedding and trash the dress session would both still make it.  They were both amazing shoots and there was no way we wouldn't want to post them eventually.  That goes for everyone who's weddings or shoots haven't been posted yet ... we just got so far behind for a while, it is taking a long time to catch up.  So Caitlin, here is your beautiful posting :-)!!

 

Caitlin and Dave were married in early May 2010, at the Desert Botanical Gardens in Phoenix, Arizona.  This is one of our favorite venues and these two are among our favorite couples!  They were so amazing to work with and they have the most adorable daughter named Shaylee.  Doesn't hurt how photogenic they are either :-)!  The only sad thing is that we won't be able to work with them much in the future because the week after their wedding they headed off to Portland to live.  The important thing though, is that they love it there.  Thank you both so much for allowing us to be a part of your big day ... it was just stunning!!

Caitlin Smith:

Tina and Kevin (and Angie too!), THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!!!!!! :-D You guys bent over backwards for us (literally sometimes, lol!) and we appreciate it more than you could know. Everyone who has seen our album has been amazed at the unmatched quality and attention to detail apparent from cover to cover. Not only are you masters in the field of photography, but you're also just plain awesome people. :) We are forever grateful,
Caitlin & Dave
