Yesterday I was asked by a client – how do you know when a photo should be B&W or color? When we are shooting with film and the cameras are pre loaded with B&W or color film – you have to determine which camera to use when taking the photo. Sometimes you see the photo […]

B&W or Color?

This couple above is about to celebrate their anniversary. I was looking back at some photos from their wedding and engagement shoot over 7 years ago and came across a few photos from this session at the Royal Palms and my takeaway is that I still really love these photos. There is nothing dated about […]

Good photography never goes out of style

There are so many sweet and beautiful traditions that are part of every wedding celebration. Whether they are religious, spiritual or decorative – no two weddings are alike – and the interpretation of tradition is as varied as can be imagines.

This cake cutting was beautiful. An elegant cake – enough for the 300+ guests – a gorgeous bride and her handsome groom. And then a little cake in the groom’s face and the sweet kiss that followed.

Motion Blur, yes this is done on purpose!

Hands down, the Clayton House is one of Scottsdale’s best wedding venues.  There are not enough superlatives to say about the Clayton Venues newest event space in Old Town Scottsdale. The official Grand Opening was held in December and believe me it did not disappoint.  Some of the best wedding vendors in the industry to […]

The ceremony. The reason we are all gathered together. The most important moment of the day. Some ceremonies include religious, traditional and personal components to the ceremony. Often there are tears and laughs. It can be somber and it can be hysterical – this is another part of a wedding day that can really be […]

A sneak peek is just the tiniest peak into a couple’s day. Our absolute favorite images are reserved for sharing with a couple privately when their entire gallery is ready. But we do like to share images that speak to us and our style – and something to give the couple a glimpse at their […]

and when you appear all the rivers sound in my body, bells shake the sky, and a hymn fills the world.
