Bernice & Xavier’s Secret Garden Wedding in Phoenix, Arizona

This past Sunday we had the privilege of joining Bernice and Xavier for their wedding day. They began their relationship in high school exactly 12 years before their wedding!! How cool is that? Xavier has been in Afghanistan working while Bernice stayed busy making plans for their wedding. They picked a great location! We have heard about the Secret Garden for several years but had never actually been there. It was such a perfect place for a smaller outside wedding. My favorite spaces here were the bridal room, where Bernice spent most of her time before the ceremony, and the barn. The rest of the property was really nice, but these two spots were really cool, mostly because of the photos that we were able to get. Their wedding was so much fun, a mariachi band kept everyone entertained while we took family photos. Because the photos were one of their highest priority, we actually missed the end of their reception (last dance and exit) because we were taking pictures with the Rolls-Royce. When we got back, everyone was gone!! That was okay with us because we got some really sweet pictures of them!! We were able to play around with our lights which made it even better!

Here is the slideshow from their wedding reception:

Lauren & Ed’s Wedding at Moon Valley in North Phoenix, Arizona

We are psyched to post these wedding pictures. Since we began shooting weddings in 2006. We have been showing a little “sneak peak” of each couples’ photos to everyone at their wedding reception on our 24″ iMac. We are always watching the guests reaction to the photos when we first start the slideshow. Usually, we begin the slideshow after dinner while some of the guests begin dancing and mingling around the reception area. We’ve become familiar with the typical reaction from the bride and groom, the family, and so on. Lauren and Ed’s wedding is definitely one of the exceptions. We have never (well, maybe 2 other times) received the reaction to our work like we did this past Saturday at Moon Valley. Everyone was so excited about the photos, which was surprising because most of the guests were outside enjoying the hand-rolled cigars (thank you to Willy Cigars from Chandler) and we weren’t expecting most of the guest to even see the pictures. But the brides’ smile was a bit bigger than usual, and we LOVE IT when we get that reaction! Saturday was a good day. Thank you Lauren and Ed for allowing us to celebrate with you!! Congratulations to both of you…

Christina & Daniel’s wedding at Montelucia Resort in Paradise Valley

Nate and I (Tim S) photographed a wedding at Montelucia Resort for the first time yesterday. It is one of the newest resorts in Scottsdale, actually Paradise Valley, and is a picture perfect location for a wedding and reception. There is a beautiful chapel and bride’s room that was designed specifically for weddings. Other than the 108 degree weather, their day couldn’t have been any better. Christina and Dan are such a great couple and because everyone was so relaxed, we were able to capture some great moments throughout their day. (By the way, if you are planning a wedding in this area during June, July or August, think about hiring someone to follow you around with a portable air conditioner to keep you cool.) Luckily, they were handing out cooled, wet cloths for everyone to put on their faces and necks – awesome. There is an amazing spa at Montelucia where we stopped for a few photos of the couple. We walked up the huge spiral staircase, taking pictures of them along the way, finishing on the top where Nate took the crazy photo with the cool flare. We can’t wait to shoot another wedding at this sweet venue.

Nate started taking pictures of us when we are shooting and it’s usually while I am squatting in some stupid pose trying to get the shot, at least I was on the ground for this one…

Wedding Photography – Fountain Hills Wedding – Jaimee & Thomas married at SunRidge Canyon

On April 18, 2009 we had the privilege of spending the day with Jaimee and Thomas at SunRidge Canyon in Fountain Hills. We had so much time to spend with the two of them on their wedding day which was perfect for us to capture so many different shots. We were able to do 2 separate “sunset sessions” with them because we got to go out right before the sun was setting, and then we got to go back out once the sun was already down. It was perfect. If you haven’t seen their wedding slideshow, you can check it out –> Fountain Hills Wedding Photography. Here are a few that make us happy.

Wedding photography in Phoenix, Arizona – May 2, 2009 wedding

Here are some shots that Nate and I (Tim S) did last month for a super amazing couple. This was definitely one of the funnest weddings we have ever been a part of. I don’t know if “funnest” is a real word or not, but you get the point. We had a good time! We will have a slideshow up very soon but for now, just a taste…

Fountain Hills Wedding Photography – Julie & Josh’s Eagle Mountain Wedding

I am so glad that I was able to finally photograph a wedding on Saturday. We were privileged the fabulous Stephanie Fay (formally Tunnel Photography) could help us out since Shauna is a full-time mom right now! We met up at Eagle Mountain about an hour early to make a plan for the day. Julie’s family had planned a traditional Chinese tea ceremony where they exchanged their thankfulness for each other. It was truly unique and genuine, I loved this part of the day. We don’t get to photograph events like this very often. Julie was wearing her mother’s red dress which I couldn’t actually believe because it looked like it was brand new! I was so excited when the sun began to set because it looked like it was going to be good. Don’t know if you saw the sunset on Saturday, but it was brilliant. Julie and Josh really wanted great sunset photos and because we were at Eagle Mountain, we acutally had 2 sunsets because of the mountain that is just south of the ceremony site. As you can see, the sky was perfect, and the light was glorious! Thank you Julie and Josh for including us in your celebration, we had a great time with you, your family and friends!
