10-6-13 Destination Wedding Photographers ATWed00.jpg

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 :-)!!

10-6-13 Scottsdale Wedding Photographers TSWed00.jpg

I have to start by saying how much we love this couple!  From the time we first met Tracey and Steven and photographed their engagement session, we knew we wanted to be a part of their wedding day.  It took these two a few tries to get their wedding date and location locked down, but they finally settled on October 6, 2013 at the Westin Kierland Resort in Scottsdale, Arizona.  The sad thing for us ... Tracey emailed to let us know they had locked down their date and literally, we had just booked that same date a couple of days before.  Noooo!  We were so upset.

Fortunately, we did have a small way of still being involved in Tracey and Steven's big day!  Our partner photographers, Angie and Meg, were available and able to shoot their wedding and we couldn't be happier with the results.  These two really brought it and did a spectacular job!

Between helping plan out timelines for the photos, meeting at their venue with the couple to scout alongside Angie and Meg, looking through the photos and pulling them for this blog post, and seeing the tons of photos posted on both of their facebook timelines by their friends on the day of the wedding and in the days following, we felt like we were there to experience all the emotions and beauty of the day right alongside them.

Tracey and Steven, thank you so much for everything!  Kevin and I have grown to care about both of you as friends and we all, including Angie and Meg, couldn't be more happy for you!  We all wish you a lifetime of happiness and wonderful memories!  We hope you enjoy the sneak peak!  BTW, Oreo (their beloved puppy dog) was adorable as always :-).
~xoxo, Tina, Kevin, Angie and Meg

We have to make special mention of Cara Morrison and everyone at A Day To Cherish for planning this wedding and making sure everything was picture perfect!  They did a magnificent job they did as always!  We would also like to again thank Angie and Meg for their outstanding work on this wedding!  You two rock :-)!!

Erika and Zaid were married over the Labor Day weekend at historic Arizona Biltmore in Phoenix.  The weekend was unusally hot, even by Phoenix standards, because of the extreme humidity.  The saying, "It's a dry heat", doesn't always apply, especially at the height of monsoon season.  That said, the day did hold back the storms and was beautiful none-the-less.

Erika chose to go with a vintage look that fit perfectly with the gorgeous vintage architecture of the venue!  The ceremony was stylish and the reception was full of special entertainment, from the belly dancers, to the live band, to the firework display, to the photo booth.  A great time was had by all the guests!

One special detail that we found very touching was Erika choosing to include Sun Conure bird feathers in the bouquet and boutonniere.  This was a surprise for Zaid.  The couple lost their beloved Sun Conure, Mango, recently and unexpectedly.  I have always had parrots and lost one very special one unexpectedly, so I really identify with the pain of losing such a special companion.  I thought it was a beautiful way of including Mango in such a major life event.

Did we mention that these two are photographers themselves and used to specialize in weddings.  They found us on the Wedding Photojournalist Association's (WPJA) website, a prestigious organization they used to be a part of ... no pressure there :-).  Erika and Zaid, you have been a delight to work with and we hope we did you proud!

A very special thank you to our associate photographer, Meg, for second shooting this stunning wedding!!

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!
