Though I prefer being behind the lens, they recently had me in front of their cameras as well. I can’t wait to see what brilliance they’ve created. Stay tuned, I know it’s going to be awesome.

I frequently work side-by-side with the fun and talented crew of Serendipity Videography. This time, I had the pleasure of putting them in front of me. They’re all a blast and it doesn’t take much effort to keep the excitement high. Taryn’s idea of having everyone on bleachers, routing for their team, was a perfect setting to convey their energy and personalities.

Dana and Jeremy's wedding last weekend at the stunning Royal Palms was even more beautiful than I had imagined. The 80 degree weather, the contagious emotions, the 16 person bridal party, their two dogs, the 93 year old Grandmother singing and dancing... it was awesome! And, made even more perfect with the expertise of Imoni Events, Table Tops, Etc., Envelope Envy, My Wedding Film and Creative Touch, just to name a few. Capturing the wedding of such a wonderfully close couple, not to mention gorgeous, and getting to do it with creative friends just reaffirms my belief that I truly have the best job in the world. Can't wait for next weekend.

Last week marked the third year that I've shot the IIDA Couture fashion event. Hosted at the Hotel Valley Ho, this event was more spectacular than ever. Adorned with outfits made from carpet, wall paper, furniture coverings and other cool materials not typically associated with clothing, models strutted a runway of glass cutting through the center of the pool. It was awesome!

For the year of 2010, I took at least one picture every day with my beloved iphone. Inspired by Chase Jarvis "The Best Camera Is The One That's With You", this was a project to look closer at the common moments in life (one of my favorites is the Circle K and their ironic address) and stay creative while working with limited equipment.
It might take a minute to load the video so here's a monthly highlight while you wait

After an engagement session overlooking Camelback Mountain (the site of Ryan's famous proposal- check out Mixed Bag) and Old Town Scottsdale, then Amanda's bridal portraits at Destiny's Bride, their wedding finally came. I really love these guys and am inspired by how much they enjoy life. It's evident by the size of their smiling bridal party that I'm not the only one.
Church nuptials were held at St. Bernard of Clairvaux and then Ollie the Trolley carried us to the stunning Silverleaf Club for their reception. Though I didn't have much time to take advantage of the amazing backdrops, I think Silverleaf is my new favorite venue. With arrangements by the Flower Studio and some awesome entertainment from The Instant Classics, just to drop a couple more names, their day was perfect.
A huge thanks to makeup genius Linda Wagner for referring these guys. You're the best!
