This wedding was full of emotion, and tons of fun! 

At this celebration, the more the merrier was played out perfectly with over 200 guests! 

We were at the beautiful Secret Garden in Phoenix, family and friends poured in from around the country to witness as Rachael and Ryan declared their vows to one another.

I spent time with the bride and her girls before the wedding, capturing the excitement as it built up. 

My brother in law was photographing the guys getting dressed, allowing the camera to be in two places at once. 

This is why it’s so important to shoot a wedding with two seasoned professional photographers.

The ceremony was lovely, topped off with the release of white doves, and many tears of joy were shed.

The emotion did not end after the ceremony, once the bride and groom were announced into the reception. first dances, speeches, and an incredibly powerful song sung by a close friend kept us busy documenting the events and reactions.

 When the dance floor was finally opened up, it was filled to the max and the night was danced away.

First year down, it’s a BIG deal, and a great reason to document. 

Mom and dad can look back and wonder how they did it, and how one year could have gone by so incredibly fast!

We started out with a simple Lego train and hat, snapped some adorable shots, and quickly moved on before losing his attention.

  With the help of mom, we slipped in a birthday cake, some blocks, and new hat.

I managed to get a few shots before he noticed the cake!

This is not a new idea, but it really doesn’t get old. 

Watching your little one fully experience his first birthday cake is better than having a piece yourself. 

This little guy got started out with a little apprehension, then once he realized it was okay to touch, and even fun to play with, he immediately went in for the taste test. 

This was the point of no return, and oh so cute!

Ever since I’ve been photographing weddings, I have found it strange to just attend a wedding.  It’s completely different to sit on the sidelines and watch the events unfold without a camera.

Well, this was probably the strangest of all. 

We were at the beautiful Moon Valley Country Club, nuzzled in the foothills with a golf course laid out behind the ceremony site. 

I was there to photograph, but my subject was not the bride and groom – – it was the DJ / Musician!

Kevin Huang, owner of Party Bug Entertainment, is an amazing violinist, guitarist, and DJ. 

He utilizes his musical talent to entertain in a unique way. 

He provides beautiful ceremony music, but also plays fun, karaoke style, songs for entertainment prior to and after the ceremony. 

His repertoire includes every genre you can imagine. . even 70’s disco! 

I have to say my favorite was probably the “Be My Guest” serenade to the bridal party from Beauty and the Beast while dinner was being served.

When not playing an instrument, he is a great DJ with access to all the music you might want for your wedding. 

He keeps the wedding on track, the party moving, and all done in a fun way.

Though I still have all my kids at home, I could imagine that when they are gone, having them home all at once would be a joy! 

What better time for a family portrait? 

Though not always easy to arrange, I’ve heard it’s always worth it!

With three grown boys, and a girlfriend in tow, we spent about an hour at the ASU Research Park.  

They were all so easy going, fun, and photogenic.  

Mom and dad did a great job raising their sons!

Not only did we get some great shots, but we had a nice walk along the lake. 

I love this location because it offers a lake setting, lots of different types of greenery (sometimes if I’m lucky – green grass!) architecture, and it is very close for me. 

It’s my go-to, comfort place for shoots. 

I know it well and have photographed there more times than I can remember. 

It was a great and interesting way to spend an evening – photographing, great company, relaxing location.
