Harrison & Jocelyne. These two are awesome and we just love them. Harrison is a goofball with killer style who is always making everyone laugh and Jocelyne is a redheaded stunner with the kindest heart. When we met, we instantly connected with them and it felt like we were old friends right away. 

Their wedding day was gorgeous and we are newly obsessed with shooting at wineries! Jocelyne wore the most stunning light blush wedding gown and carried the a blush and white bridal bouquet to match. The guys sported our favorite groom/groomsmen look of deep blue suits and the bridesmaids were in the most stunning shade of slate blue. It was a color combination to die for! They had a joyful, emotional ceremony, followed by a pretty rad party where they were surrounded by a group of kind, loving people who lifted them up and loved on them the entire day. It was a day that we won't soon forget. Thanks for letting us be a part of your beautiful wedding day Harrison & Jocelyne! You guys are the best!!

Megan & Mike's Tucson Engagement Session

We are so excited that Megan & Mike are ELOPING today!! Elopements feel so special and intimate, we know their's is going to be wonderful. We had so much fun with these two at their Tucson engagement session. When we met, it immediately felt like we were old friends. They insisted that they were not photogenic at all, but I'd say these photos prove otherwise. Congratulations Megan & Mike! I know we only met last week, but we are so excited for all the future has in store for you. 

PS-the photos below are all film. Isn't it just so beautiful and dream like? Love film! 

XO, Betsy & John

Fall Desert Elopement Inspiration | Tucson Elopement Photographers

We love styled shoots and this one is pretty special to us. These shoots create unique experiences to connect with wedding vendor friends and allows each person involved to put their creativity and talents to use. If you've been following us for the last year, you might have noticed that we've been shooting with film a lot lately. It's completely stolen our hearts and sparked a new passion for photography. This shoot is almost all film and it's safe to say that we're thrilled with the results! An added blessing is that this shoot was featured on Ruffled blog yesterday! Check it out, here.  

We love the desert and it's no secret that it's so on trend right now. For this shoot, we wanted to inspire couple's eloping to consider the desert as their fall "I do" destination. What the desert lacks in red and orange falling leaves, it makes up for in stunning views, unique landscapes and fantastic fall weather. Basically, the perfect place to elope and spend a few days soaking up the sun with your new hubby or wife by your side. 

While we love gorgeous white dresses and lavish wedding details, we wanted to inspire couples who want to plan a meaningful, low-key, but hip wedding day. We thought of the girl who had always dreamed of wearing something unique on her wedding day, so this bride donned a stunning lace burgundy dress while her laid back groom sports his favorite jeans and hat. Rachel of The Powder Room Bridal created a stunning look for our bride with a natural look paired with a pop of fall color on her lips. Incredible designs by Alexis Grace Florals brought a little romance to the desert scene and tied in those gorgeous fall colors with a southwest twist. Your wedding day is all about marrying the one you love, so forget about the social norms and plan a wedding that is uniquely you.

Our good friend Kelly of Le Champagne Projects, designed a romantic private dinner party for two, complete with candlelight, a twinkling fireplace and wild florals. Burgundy, plum and lavender tones are woven throughout the scene and pair with the desert colors beautifully. What boho desert bride wouldn't want that beautiful cake on their wedding day? Alia of Crumbs Cake Boutique made this gorgeous white cake that we paired with an ever so fitting real cactus & succulent topper.

To present a unique, authentic feel we used real couple, Meredith & Caleb who are madly in love desert dwellers, with a fun, hip style all their own. We love to see creative couples express themselves on their wedding day and hope this shoot will inspire more couples to think outside the box! 

Thanks for sharing in our joy, friends! If you follow us on instagram, prepare to be inundated with these photos for a long time! :)

Alyssa & Dave's elegant Tubac Golf Resort Wedding

Alyssa & Dave had the most stunning wedding at the gorgeous (and our favorite Southern AZ venue to shoot at)  Tubac Golf resort. This elegant black tie affair had us swooning from the moment we walked in the door. The bridesmaids wore beautiful floor length blush dresses and the guys donned sleek black tuxes. Alyssa looked incredible in her pronovias gown from gigi bridal. The wonderful gals at I do Hair & Makeup highlighted Alyssa's natural beauty with simple, but stunning hair and makeup. Rackel Ghelsen helped the couple create a lovely, elegant affair that matched the couple's classic style perfectly.  

Not only do we love this wedding, but we were also honored to find that Alyssa & Dave's gorgeous wedding was featured in the most recent issue of Tucson Bride & Groom!

Kevin & Dan's Mt. Tamalpais Wedding

Kevin & Dan are two of the kindest people we have ever met and we are so honored they chose us to be their wedding photographers! Summers in AZ are brutal, so we recently started opening up a few months out of the year to shoot in the Bay Area! Because we live in Arizona, we opted for a Skype chat to get to know them a little bit better during the planning process. During our first call, we could tell their wedding was going to be amazing!  These two are madly in love and have the best proposal story ever.

The days surrounding Kevin & Dan's wedding day, there fog covering Mount Tamalpais, where Kevin & Dan were supposed to get married. We were a little nervous about it, but the morning of their wedding, the fog rolled out and blue skies opened up as if to welcome them into this beautiful new phase of their lives together! What a blessing. As the day rolled on, these two were just as kind and joyful as ever. During their emotional ceremony was clear that Kevin & Dan had so many amazing, supportive people in their lives. After a little bit of trekking through the gorgeous rolling golden hills for some portraits, we headed over to the Sweet Water Music Hall for a fun and jazzy travel themed reception with all their closest friends and family. 

Thank you for letting us be a part of your wonderful day Kevin & Dan! We adore you two. 

XO, Betsy & John

Navy & Salmon Stardance Barn Wedding in Tucson

Hannah & Mike had a stunning Tucson summer wedding with vibrant hues and incredible desert and mountain views. 

It was a warm summer day in Tucson and the sun was shining bright on Hannah & Mike's wedding day! Spirits were high and everyone was totally joyful. We could not have asked for better clients, seriously. If you haven't been to Stardance in Tucson, this place is lovely. It's one of Tucson's only barn venues and it's surrounded by some pretty incredible desert veiws. (If you've been following us for any time at all, you know we have an obsession with the desert!) The day was lovely and not even the scorching Tucson heat could kill the good vibes that day! 

Congratulations Hannah & Mike! Thanks for letting us be a part of your special day. 

Hugs, Betsy &John

Alyssa & Dave's Tucson Desert Engagement Session

We had so much fun with Alyssa & Dave at their gorgeous Tucson desert engagement session! Can you believe these glowy desert veiws?

This couple is so sweet and a match made in heaven. They are both mellow and kind with a crazy love for each other. Dave was so sweet and gentle with his bride to be, we just know that he is going to make an incredible husband! Alyssa & Dave both live in San Fransisco, so we met up with them while we were there shooting a wedding a few months back. They looked so cute and we were SO excited to be shooting an engagement session in the bay area! Unfortunately, the weather had other plans for the day, because it was super gloomy and crazy windy (like so many days in the bay area!) We got a handful of super cute shots, but it was not what any of us had in mind! When A & D were back in Tucson a few months later, we convinced them to meet up for a mini desert engagement session to show off their Tucson roots. We are SO glad they agreed, because look at this gorgeous, sunny desert! Tucson was showing off for this one and we couldn't be happier with how they turned out. 

We have been anxiously awaiting Alyssa & Dave's big day at the gorgeous Tubac Golf resort (which is our all time favorite venue to shoot at) and it's finally here! We are working with an incredible team of vendors and we are ready to capture this wonderful day for this amazing couple. Congratulations Alyssa & Dave! Thank you for inviting to be a part of your big day. We adore you two!! Thanks for tuning in friends. Hope everyone has an incredible weekend!

Hugs,

Betsy & John

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

When Jane and Blair told us they were eloping and wanted to book us for a photo session to celebrate, we were so excited! Not only are these two model material, but they have a sweet, gentle love for each other that really shines through their images. We strolled along dirt paths, surrounded by grassy fields of mesquite trees. He held her hand and looked at her adoringly as they carefully walked through the thick grass. A long week of rainy days preceded their session, so the once deserty landscape was lush and beautiful. Jane & Blair were quiet and pensive, but so connected even in silence. It was a cool day and the clouds hung low, but peeked out just in time to give us those gorgeous golden hour portraits that we can't live without. It was such a stunning day to celebrate marriage! We feel so honored when couples choose us to document their wedding days and this instance is no different. Big or small, every wedding day is just as special as the next. Congratulations Jane & Blair!!

XO, Betsy & John

Megan & Matt's Sedona Engagement Session

Megan & Matt's Sedona Engagement Session

We had so much fun exploring the red rocks with this awesome power couple and their sweet little Lucy, at their Sedona engagement session! 

Megan and Matt are two of the most laid back people we have ever met. They are kind and whitty and seriously in love. We spent almost an entire day with them in Sedona and it just felt like we were old friends. We are so excited to be sharing their engagement photos, because these two are getting married TODAY!! We are just headed out the door to shoot their big day, but we wanted to take a moment and reminisce about this wonderful time in their lives, as it comes to a close and they walk into a new phase of life as husband and wife. We are SO excited for you Megan and Matt! It's an honor to be a part of your story! 

Hugs, 

Betsy & John

Looking Back on Our Wedding Day

Comment

Looking Back on Our Wedding Day

We can't believe it's already been three years since we said "I do", surrounded by family and friends  at our backyard wedding in Tucson, Arizona.

Our wedding day was so special, you guys. We have a group of wonderful family and friends who surrounded us with love and made our backyard wedding something that we would never forget. It was spring time in Tucson, the wildflowers were in full bloom and like most things in our life, we envisioned a wedding day that was colorful and full of joy. It was such a blessing to get married in Betsy's parent's backyard. We did everything ourselves, with the help of our very patient friends and family. We had very little experience with weddings at this point, but by the grace of God, everything came together beautifully. Though trends have changed and our personal style has evolved, we wouldn't change a thing, even if we could.  

It was March 15, 2014 and we had only shot a handful of weddings at that point. We had just discovered the resurgence of film photography and absolutely fell in love with the look and feel of it. We found Constance Higley (who unfortunately doesn't offer wedding photography anymore) and knew she would be the perfect fit for our big day. Our wedding put a spark in our hearts for documenting love stories. Its been an incredible journey and we can only hope that our clients love and appreciate their wedding photos as much as we do our own. We hope you enjoy this tiny glimpse into the start of our life together. Thanks for sharing in our joy, friends. 

With love, 

Betsy & John

Jana & Michael Tubac Golf Resort Wedding

Jana and Michael had an absolutely stunning navy and white, black tie wedding at Tubac Golf Resort and we feel so honored to be their wedding photographers! 

It was a cloudy February day at Tubac Golf Resort, but our bride Jana wasn't shaken or stressed, she was just excited to see her guy and start their journey as husband and wife. There was a smell of fresh cut grass and desert rain in the air, but as the day crept on the sun broke through the clouds to shine down on Jana and Michael on their wedding day. The day was filled with gorgeous cactus themed details by Brie Dumais Designs that fit perfectly with the greens and white of the gorgeous bouquets that Katie from Posh Petals created! The bride donned a stunning, simple, white Pronovias gown from Gigi's Bridal and her bridesmaids wore stunning floor length navy blue dresses. Across the resort, the groom was anxiously awaiting his first look at his gorgeous bride. The guys were decked out in crisp black tuxedos and black cowboy boots, perfect attire for an elegant wedding at Tubac Golf Resort. Jana and Michael got married in the chapel at Tubac Golf Resort, which is a romantic space, dimly lit by towering chandeliers and beams of sunlight peeking through the windows. The large wooden door and white hacienda style chapel is the absolute perfect spot for bridal and wedding party photos. After photos at the chapel, we headed to the golf course, which boasts pretty incredible mountain veiws with beautiful grass nad tall trees that Tucsonans don't get to see very often! The party continued in the gorgeous reception space that was filled with candles and gorgeous table settings drapede in greenery. The entire day was absolutely lovely and we feel so blessed so to be Jana and Michaels wedding photographers! 

Thanks for veiwing this gorgeous Tubac wedding! 

Hugs, 

Betsy & John

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany Desert Anniversary Session

Mike & Brittany had the most stunning bohemian desert anniversary session ever! It was inspired by Tucson and it didn't disappoint! Smoke bombs, gorgeous florals and smoke bombs. Interested yet?

When Mike and Brittany asked us about doing an anniversary session, we just knew it was going to be incredible. These two are sweet, mellow and fashionable musicians with a crazy mad love for each other. Mike and Brittany met at a music conference as teenagers, had a whirlwind romance and tied the knot a short time later. Since getting married, they moved to Tucson, an Arizona desert town, deeply rooted in a culture of music and art. Mike and Brittany fell in love with the culture and community they found in Tucson. They just celebrated 8 years of being married and wanted to create a shoot that represented not only their love for each other, but the rich connection they have established with their little desert town. We created a shoot for them that was inspired by the southwest desert, filled with eclectic, geometric details and just gushing with romance.

We feel so blessed that this gorgeous session was featured on Green Wedding Shoes

Boho Blu- Elegant Bohemian Wedding Day Inspiration

Dreamy Indigo desert wedding at Tohono Chul Gardens with the Soiree Girls! 

It was such an honor to team up with incredible wedding planners Jenn and Akiko from Soiree girls for this styled shoot! These gals are bohemian geniuses and created a shoot that is elegant and whimsical all at the same time. For this shoot, we wanted to create an elegant boho soiree that was inspired by rich earthy tones like indigo blues and desert greens, with touches of gold and natural stone details. Our shoot took place at the gorgeous Tohono Chul Gardens, a lush green hidden oasis in the desert. It is the perfect spot for an intimate vow renewal or wedding and has so many gorgeous spots for photos! Betsy Dunlap created a stunning hand calligraphed invitation suit and place cards for us that set a dreamy tone for the gorgeous indigo table settings that the Soiree girls created! For couples trying to achieve this look, we encourage them to be really intentional in choosing a venue that they love. We adore this sweet and simple garden setting because it enhanced the intimate feel of our bohemian soiree without requiring any additional décor. The Ohhh Booth (a vintage volkswagen bus converted into a photo booth) made an appearance that has everyone swooning! We love the Ohhh Booth, because it is such a great alternative option for couples who want a photo booth, with a little bit of extra wow factor. It was an incredible experience working with such talented vendors! We love styled shoots because it gives us an opportunity for us an other vendors to express themselves creatively. A huge thanks to our models who stepped in last minute and saved the day! Thanks for checking out this collaboration friends! Want to see more? Check out the feature on 100 Layer Cake!

Jasmin & Jon Superstition Mountain Country Club Wedding

Jasmin and Jon had a stunning, elegant blush tone wedding with incredible views of the Superstiton Mountains at Superstition Mountain Country Club

Jon and Jasmin are a super sweet and mellow couple. They are all around good people and kind to everyone around them. They are fun, funny and pretty awesome dancers too! We had a blast capturing their elegant Superstition Mountain Country Club wedding. If you haven't been to the Superstition Mountain Country Club, it's just stunning. There is nothing else like it in the Phoenix area! The ceremony takes place on a lush green lawn, looking out over some incredible views of the Superstition Mountains. The grounds are elegant and the architecture is reminiscent of a Tuscan villa. Every wall is covered in vines and it's as if you step into a different world when you arrive. The reception was a true party under the stars, dimly lit with the glow of cafe lights. We are so thankful that Jasmin and Jon chose us as their wedding photographers. Thanks for checking out Jasmin and Jon's beautiful Phoenix wedding! 

Hugs, Betsy & John
