Luke & David’s New Year’s Eve wedding in Phoenix, Arizona

Luke and David’s wedding was literally 1/4 mile from my house. What could be better when you are shooting on New Year’s Eve? I even had a brief break to go home and eat some pizza with my wife and kids!

These two though…such amazing guys, their friends and family were so warm and inviting. The love was real and palpable. Their own backyard was the venue and it was beautiful. And it’s always a blast to work with Alex Rimer from BTS Event Management as well. I mean, if you are going to work on New Year’s Eve, it’s best to do it with close friends! You might even spot a few photos of us at the end of this blog 🙂

Enjoy!

Mark and Gracia’s backyard wedding

Mark and Gracia. I dunno how to say it, but they are truly two of the nicest people I’ve ever had the pleasure of photographing. Their wedding day was relaxed, beautiful and full of love and kindness. We started off at La Hacienda for getting ready photos and some portraits and then headed off to a private residence in Paradise Valley for the rest of the day. We felt taken care of from the get go and just like a part of the family.

Thank you to Leslie Lejcar for being there with me to help photograph this one. You were a blessing from God that day. I mean it.

And to Mark and Gracia…your kindness wont be forgotten. Thank you for making the day incredibly fun and wonderful. I hope you enjoy a bunch of my favorite images from the day!

Peter and Misty’s backyard wedding in Cave Creek

I love, love, love this little wedding. Peter and Misty each had two kids from previous relationships and all of them were soooo excited for this day.

An amazing aspect or bonus of my job is get a taste of random moments in peoples’ lives. And when you shoot weddings, then you not only get a little peek into their world, but it’s also at one of the most important and emotional moments of their lives.

Backyard Wedding | Nicole + Rick

I love backyard weddings. There is this sense of closeness and family that you may not always get at a larger, amazing venue. Usually friends and family are hanging around all day, helping set things up, chilling in the living room, watching the big game and all that kind of jazz. Heck even the groom grabs a beer out of the fridge for you! Can’t top that! Nicole and Rick got married at her parents house in Glendale a few weeks ago and I was so blessed to be their wedding photographer.

I am also grateful to Josh Snyder for second shooting for me…what an an awesome photographer he is.

But mainly to Rick and Nicole…thank you so much for trusting me with your day. I remember all the way back the first attempt at an engagement session got rained out but we still killed it on the second try! Have had such a fun time working with you both and I wish you the best of luck!
