Mesa AZ Hilton Wedding Photographer
Justin and Raquel were married at the Mesa Arizona Hilton. The nearby golf course is a great place for photos, and Justin and Raquel were gracious and accomodating even though it was very hot. I really admire the couples that get married in the summer in Arizona. Here are some of the images from our formal session as well as a couple from the reception at the Pavon, a club downstairs in the basement of the Mesa Hilton. Here are some more photos from the 'formal' wedding portraiture session:
Shooting engagements in the rain can be risky, but sometimes it creates the perfect setting. Especially when you have a fun couple like Jesal and Achal that are very relaxed. Instead of worrying about the rain during our recent engagement photo shoot on Mill Avenue in Tempe Arizona, they embraced the weather, and the portraits turned out great. It's not often that you can get 'great' weather like this in Arizona, but it can really create light with magical qualities. Thanks Achal and Jesal!

I recently did an engagement photo session up at Las Sendas for a couple that needed a variety of photos for their invitations. They will be putting some text on the side of one of the photos. This is a fairly common request, and we can photograph engagements with this in mind. Following is an example of how the final image would look. We darkened the background so that it will be easier to read the white writing against it. Of couse, we always try to get a few classic poses, that can be...

Today was the last of a series of great photo shoots with Becky and John. I did Kristen's wedding (Becky's sister) a short while ago. It was great to spend more time with the Shipley family. Again, I had the pleasure of working with Perry Sevey, a great and experienced videographer who has bionic super powers. But he keeps that under wraps. The reception was held in Tucson, at the Heritage Highlands at Dove Mountain golf resort. A live piano & jazz band enchanted the guests. A send-off...

Michelle & Lonnie are just made for each other. I did their engagement photos at Las Sendas in northeast mesa. Always a favorite place to shoot. These were taken from about 5:30-6:30pm which works great for this time of year. Also, I love Las Sendas for the variety of backgrounds. There is desert landscape, waterfalls, grass, stone walls, and benches in close proximity to the community center. As you can see, the late afternoon sunlight was warm and inviting. I look forward to doing...

Bethany and Rulon were beautiful together. A very charismatic bride, Bethany was striking and very easy to pose. Rulon was easy going and very patient with all my requests. We did one hour after the ceremony, which produced great results. All images were taken at the Mesa Arizona Temple grounds. The following attest that not all great photos are taken in early morning or late afternoon. These were taken during a generally unfavorable time, mid-day. And yes, it was toasty.
