Katie and Logan were married January 21st, 2012 and we just couldn't let this wedding slip away without being blogged!  Simply put ... it was STUNNING!

Katie is studying at Virginia Theological Seminary and is a Deacon working toward priesthood in the Episcopal Church.  They were married at St. Peter's Episcopal Church in Litchfield Park (Phoenix) by the Bishop of Arizona.  This was such an honor for Katie and Logan as the Bishop only conducts a couple of weddings a year.  This was our first Episcopal ceremony and it was so lovely to watch!

The reception was held at The Raven Golf Club at Verrado, also in Litchfield Park and was quite a party.  And don't get us started about Katie and Logan's photo session ... AMAZING!!!  Take beautiful landscapes and a spectacular sunset and add in a healthy dose of wind and what results are images that are intensely dramatic in nature.  It was a joy to be part of this wonderful wedding!

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 :-)!

Jamie and Jeremy were married March 24, 2012 at the Wigwam Resort in Phoenix, Arizona!  This was a wedding all about the details.  There were so many beautiful details we didn't even know where to begin.  One of the most significant details was also one of the smallest, but not in what it represented .... the tiny yellow bumble-bee that is attached to Jamie's shoe.  Jamie lost her brother the week prior to her wedding and that sweet bumble-bee represents his presence.  Truly beautiful!

Jamie and Jeremy were referred to us through a couple we photographed a few years back (and who still grace our website :-).)  We were so glad to have the opportunity to visit with Shannon and Adam again (you might recognize them from a very snowy winter trash the dress session) and to meet their two beautiful children ...something this wedding had no shortage of.  We also have to recognize Kathy Baggett of Thee Wedding & Event Warehouse for her superb job coordinating this event and the magnificent job she did with the flowers!  Breathtaking!!

Thank you for having us and we can't wait for the trash the dress shoot!  Enjoy!

April 16, 2012 // Weddings
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!
