We get to know each of our couples and adore sharing their photos and stories on our blog. Grab a soft blanket and some cocoa. You might be here for a while.

Warmth, joy and love. Hello wedding couple photos.

Though the Phoenix area is known for its heat, there are times when our weather can truly be unpredictable. That’s what had Kaila and Nick worried the day before their wedding: the sky was dark and dreary, threatening to soak everything. They woke up to a wedding miracle, though: the rain had pulled the temps […]

Some people feel the weather start to change and want to cling on to the last pieces of summer, wearing shorts and flip-flops for as long as they can manage. (Trust us, you can get away with that for a long time here in Arizona!) Others celebrate winter coming, eager to curl up with hot […]

Living in the desert, we don’t get the same autumn as everyone else. Even cool weather is a treat. That’s part of why we love fall weddings! It’s nice outside, the scent of fireplaces fills the air, and the sunsets are to die for. They can’t hold a fall-scented candle, though, to the beautiful love […]

One thing we try to do as wedding photographers is meet our couples a few times so we can get to know them. The world can be ridiculously busy, though, so that’s not always possible–take Chelsea and Kevin, for example! We didn’t have the chance to even see them via FaceTime, but when we finally […]

We don’t know about you, but we’ve gotten the “oh no! He’s cute!” vibes around a million times. Plenty of people are attractive, after all. Sometimes, like for Kristin and Brad, you get ridiculously lucky and that cute person turns out to be The One! When we had the chance to do their photoshoot at […]

The leaves might not change here in Phoenix, but there’s one thing that still screams fall: beautiful weather. It’s the perfect time to be outside–just ask Kristen and Cody! With everything going on in the world, they made the decision to reschedule their wedding bash and made things official in an elopement-style ceremony instead. As […]

When we think of weddings, our minds conjure images of lavish venues, of blooming arches and otherworldly beauty. If there’s anything that Jo and I have learned from our time as wedding photographers, though, it’s that there’s as much variety to those all-important days as there is the couples that they’re about. Cheesecakes instead of […]

Photos may be worth a thousand words, but there’s one word often missing from them: temperature. Some of our favorite photos have actually been taken on days where the Arizona sun makes everything feel like an oven! The old gag from King of the Hill definitely holds true, but only for half the year. Once […]

If you believe Alanis Morisette, you know it’s not exactly great to have rain on your wedding day. Having rain the day before your wedding, though? That just makes everything better! Rain–at least in Mesa and the rest of Phoenix–has a way of refreshing everything, making the air feel so much cooler and cleaner than […]

When I was in high school, I played the flute in marching band. We practiced under the hot Arizona sun, sweating it out to music from Candide and Jurassic Park, and I’d never been so thankful for green grass instead of prickly desert plants. Now that I’m older, though, I appreciate the desert a lot […]
