Alexandra and Dieter’s Beautiful North Phoenix Wedding with SJA Studios

The great thing about weddings nowadays is that Brides don’t feel stuck in tradition.  They make their wedding day their own.  I love that!  If you don’t want a bouquet toss, don’t do it!  If you want butterflies at your wedding, you can have them!  Want to have your wedding reception at a beautiful North Phoenix home, go for it!

That was the case with Alexandra and Dieter’s wedding day.  They stayed with tradition as far as the church was concerned.  But, when it came to the reception, they rented a beautiful North Phoenix custom home and had a fantastic reception!  Here are a few pictures from their awesome day….

What a blast we had working with these two on there beautiful day!  I wish them both all the happiness in the world!!!

What is Cinema Style Wedding Photography?

image

Cinema Style Photography is photography with an emphasis on beautiful light, a beautiful setting, and capturing the perfect moments or “takes” on your wedding day. Just like they do in the movies! With my years of background in the film industry, I bring a cinema style to my photography. I spent many years on sets working with and learning from some really talented people. All of that learning is now applied towards making you feel at ease and capturing your wedding day or portraits in the best way possible!

In the movies, they are always looking for that special moment.  Looking for the very best shot, the very best way to portray you.  That is what I am looking for on your wedding day.  I want to find the best locations and light for you to be photographed in.  Then, I want you to be yourselves and capture that.  Are you silly?  Are you romantic?  Is there a bit of mystery in you?  I want to capture that in your photos.  

Let us not forget about all those candid moments!  I want to capture those as well.  You never know what is going to happen on a wedding day.  There are so many little moments that make up your wonderful day!  All of those moments add up to the story of your wedding day.  I want you to be able to look back and see that story unfold in your pictures.  Just like a movie unfolds on the big screen.  That is what Cinema Style Photography is!

Take a peek at Sedona Golf Resort weddings!

Sedona is such a beautiful place!  So many spectacular views and scenic locations.  It is obviously one of the very best places you could choose to celebrate your big day.  In today’s post I wanted to tell you a little about one of my very favorite wedding venues, The Sedona Golf Resort!  

Sedona Golf Resort is actually located a few miles outside of Sedona proper.  The biggest benefit of this is that the views are even better than being right in Sedona.  The views of the red rocks are absolutely spectacular!  The course itself has several places where a couple will have beautiful shots of the red rocks as well as willow trees and small lakes and ponds.  There is no loss of places for beautiful wedding photos.  Here are a few examples:

So, What about the venue itself?  I can’t speak more highly of the service that the Sedona Golf Resort provides for their clients.  Katie Draxler and her crew are absolutely top notch.  From the very first steps in planning your wedding with them, you know you are in good hands.  The service is spectacular!  The food is Fantastic!  The views from the dining room are beautiful.  It is such a special place to have a wedding!

If you are planning a destination wedding and you want something really special, I highly suggest you take a look at The Sedona Golf Resort!  You will be so happy you did!

Brandi and Shaun’s Beautiful Wedding at Noah’s with SJA Studios

I was so excited when Brandi and Shaun chose me to photograph their wedding day!  They are such an awesome couple and I knew it would be such a wonderful day.  I was honored to be a part of it.  

They chose Noah’s in Chandler for their big day.  I had never shot there before so I was looking forward to working at a new venue with new clients.  What a great day it was!  Brandi has a huge family and they made it really fun!  Here are a few images from their beautiful wedding….

Yummy!

What a beautiful bride!

What a total blast their wedding was!  Two terrific families coming together to celebrate Brandi and Shaun’s big day.  Thanks to Noah’s and their wonderful staff for being so great to work with!

And, to Brandi and Shaun, here’s wishing you both all the happiness in the world!
