11-9-14 Phoenix Wedding Photographers JJCS00.jpg

Jenn and John recently contacted us to ask if we did post-wedding photo sessions. We told them we did and the date was set. These sessions are generally referred to as trash the dress sessions, however we recently decided to give our sessions a fresh, new name. We now call them our Couture Sessions. We feel the name better represents to type of shoots we conduct. Yes, we have some brides that get into the water in their dress but that is only if they decide they want to. Our objective with these shoots is to go to amazing locations in amazing light and produce spectacular and inventive images!

We did not photograph Jenn and John's wedding and while they loved their wedding images they simply felt they didn't have enough time to get a lot of images together. Unfortunately this is not uncommon on a wedding day as time frames for couple portraits are often short and hectic. This is why these sessions are so much fun. They allow for plenty of time to move around to get the best shots possible! We took Jenn and John to the amazing Superstition Mountains in east Phoenix and even played around with some night shots. We had such an amazing time getting to know these newlyweds and creating these images!

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!!

8-8-13 Sedona Trash The Dress Photographers ESTTD00.jpg

Elissa and Spenser were married in March.  They have been so busy since that they waited a while to do their trash the dress shoot.  We finally headed out in August to Sedona and it was so worth the wait!  We started the shoot at West Fork of Oak Creek and ended at Red Rock Crossing.  They were up for anything ... we like that :-), we had a great time and the photos are amazing!  We absolutely adore this couple and couldn't be happier for them!

Thanks to our Associate Photographer, Meg, for going along and contributing some awesome shots!

6-1-13 Sedona Trash The Dress Photographers WJTTD00.jpg

The day after Wendy and Jon's wedding at Merry-Go-Round Rock and Tlaquepaque, we headed back up to Sedona to photograph their Trash the Dress shoot. What a great time!! These two were up for anything, plus they look like models. We quickly determined that it is impossible to take a bad photo of Wendy ... what a beauty!

They brought along their very sweet dog, Riley, who made the shoot even more interesting. We started out in Oak Creek Canyon at West Fork Trail and finished up at Red Rock Crossing in lower Sedona. Thank you both again for having us as your wedding photographers. It was a true pleasure!

I'm so jealous I don't have such places here ! These pics are wonderful, the colors are great and I love the reflection with the water.

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!!
