Mike & Jamie's Stillwell House Wedding

Mike & Jamie's Stillwell House Wedding

Jamie & Mike got married on a beautiful sunny day at the Stillwell House in Tucson, Arizona. With the help of Crain & Co, they threw an intimate, elegant bash that none of their guests will soon forget! Mike & Jamie are a perfect pair. Mike is a strong and silent type, but he couldn't hold back the tears when he saw his beautiful bride for the first time on their wedding day. Jamie was lovely and joyful the entire day. Even when the sprinklers went off in the middle of bride & groom portraits, these two took it with ease (special thanks to our awesome assistant Nathanael for his ninja skills that kept Jamie from getting wet)! Their ceremony took place in the intimate garden type setting of Stillwell House in downtown Tucson, followed by dinner under the stars. From Jamie's gorgeous gown, to the stunning florals, every detail was absolutely perfect. It was a magical day and we were so honored to have been a part of it! 

Congratulations Jamie & Mike! 

A special thanks so all the wonderful vendors who made all these beautiful details come together.

Stephanie & Caleb's Royal Palms Wedding

Stephanie & Caleb's Royal Palms Wedding

Stephanie and Caleb. These two are so sweet and we feel so honored that they chose us as their wedding photographers. We met Stephanie when she was one of the bridesmaids in Lizzie & Alec's wedding last year. Little did we know when we did this iconic bridesmaid shot at Lizzie's wedding, we would get to recreate it with Stephanie and her bridesmaids just a year later (scroll through the post to see that sweet shot)!  Shooting at the Royal Palms is always a dream and Stephanie & Caleb's colors and florals coordinated with the vibe of the resort beautifully. Isn't it so gorgeous? We love how to warmth and color shows through on film! The ambiance of Royal Palm's seemed to fit Caleb & Stephanie perfectly. Caleb has a relaxed, calm sense about him and Stephanie is sweet and elegant with a little bit of sass! They are the perfect balance. Caleb is so gentle and kind with her, it sort of melts our hearts! You can tell by the photos that these two are a match made in heaven! Stephanie was surrounded by an amazing bride tribe who loved her, cried with her and lifted her up the entire day (side note: we seriously love all these gals!!). Caleb had family come support him from across the world. It was clear that these two are so loved and cherished by their family and friends.

It was so fun to be a part of this amazing day. We adore you Stephanie & Caleb! 

Hugs, Betsy & John

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!!

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! :)

Annie & Dave's Presidio Yacht Club Wedding

I met Annie in the 7th grade when I transferred to a new middle school. She was always the sweetest girl, with an infectious laugh and a witty spirit! After losing touch, we reconnected over breakfast last year when we were in San Fransisco to shoot a wedding. We had an awesome time together and it was like no time at all had passed at all! I wasn't surprised to find that Annie was the same wonderful woman, but she seemed even more joyful because she found the love of her life in Dave. They are the perfect match! We were honored (and so excited) when they asked us to be their wedding photographers because they got married on the docks of Presidio Yacht Club with the gorgeous Golden Gate Bridge in the background. It was the most joyful wedding that day we (and everyone else in attendance) will never forget. 

Thank you for letting us be a part of your amazing wedding day Annie & Dave! We adore you guys.  XOXO Betsy & John

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'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

Salt River Phoenix Desert Elopement

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

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

Chelsea & Brian's Phoenix Backyard Wedding

 

Chelsea and Brian are two of the most fun and funny people we have ever met! They had Gorgeous, colorful handmade backyard Phoenix wedding. Their wedding took place in Phoenix, AZ, but Chelsea and Brian did most of the planning from their home in Charlotte, NC. With the help of family and friends, Chelsea put all her creative power to work to create a whimsical, elegant backyard soiree and it came together beautifully. She created the gorgeous hand lettered signs, the beautiful paper goods, the spice jar wedding favors and the button place cards...all by hand. Can you believe that?! She is so incredibly talented! The bridesmaids wore gorgeous shades of emerald greens and the bride's mother created some stunning jewel toned bouquets, boutonnieres and centerpieces. The bride's sister is our sweet photographer friend Lexi Moody.  This family is full of talent! Browse through the photos below and prepare to be blown away at the stunning day that these two created. Not only are the details amazing, but more importantly, the chemistry and connection between Chelsea & Brian is something of wonder. These two fit hand in hand perfectly. It's their kind of relationship that makes us so thankful to be wedding photographers.  Thanks for letting us be a part of your gorgeous wedding day Chelsea & Brian!! You guys are wonderful!
