  • Welcome!

    Thank you so much for stopping by my blog - even if by accident. My name is Jeff and I have been documenting life through photography for more than 15 years.

    My hope is that you see both the heart and art in the images on this site. Please feel free to drop me a line and say hi or tell me that you totally disagree with something I wrote! If I simply made you think about something, then all the better.

Nicole + Chris | Destination Santa Fe Wedding

This was my first time in Santa Fe and all I can say is – what the heck took me so long. Luckily it didn’t take nearly as long for Nicole & Chris to discover this gorgeous sanctuary of a city. This place literally grows on you the more you explore it. Coming all the way from Washington DC, this proved to be the perfect destination for their wedding at the Randall Davey Audubon Center. Nicole and I met back in 2005 at C4 which, at the time, was about the coolest place to hang out in Cave Creek, Arizona. That was such a fun time in my life because of the people in my life at that time. People like Nicole.

Sniff sniff … anyway …

I honestly can’t express how honored I was when Nicole called me to talk about photographing her wedding. I photographed our friends Alli & Troy’s wedding back in 2008 so at least she knew I wouldn’t let her down in terms of quality. At least I hope she knew that. You did know that right Nicole?

Enjoy.

Jenn + Rob | Wedding at Tempe Center for the Arts

What a great idea Jenn & Rob came up with to have their wedding at the Tempe Center for the Arts. It made the perfect backdrop for their “wanna get away” themed wedding. All day long you could see planes taking off and landing at Sky Harbor from their venue. And talk about a fun time, we were like kids at Disneyland going from one scene to the next for their portraits. Absolute blast.

 

Kitchie + Tommy | Wedding in Oahu, Hawaii

I’ve been to Maui a couple times but this was my first time to the island of Oahu. I’m now convinced you simply can’t go wrong on any of the islands. Kitchie & Tommy tied the knot at the gorgeous Lanikuhonua Cultural Institute in Kapolei. The setting was simply breathtaking and totally fit the feeling, tone and personality of not only Kitchie and Tommy but also the relationship they share together.

I also wanted give huge props to Karine and all her staff at Seasons of Life Wedding and Event Planning. I believe every single thing went off without a hitch and they treated Kitchie and Tommy like royalty the whole day.

As the sign reads as you enter Lanikuhonua, it’s “Where Heaven Meets the Earth”, and it definitely does not fall short of that.

 

Chef Chai Chaowasaree of Chai’s Island Bistro also served up some of the best eats I’ve ever had.

 

If you still thirst for more images of their wedding day, I made a more thorough slideshow of their day on this page.

Molly & Matt | Engagement Session at Biltmore Fashion Park

I love it when I get to photograph couples in an area that has a lot of meaning specific to them. Molly & Matt live about a block away from the Biltmore Fashion Park and they spend a lot of time there. Their wedding (on Jan. 1, 2012 no less) is at the Arizona Biltmore Resort. We had a lot of fun shooting their E-Session in and around the Biltmore Fashion Park area including the tunnel to the Esplanade. Then we headed to Esplanade Place to shoot some sweet sunset images at the pool high atop the 13th floor. Wow would I love to live there and use that as my studio!

Megan + Cody at PebbleCreek

When we all heard it was only going to be about 50 degrees on the first day of the year, we all thought we’d be in for one cold wedding day. After all, we planned on 4 hours of location shooting prior to the wedding ceremony. However, once we started shooting at the first of four locations, Megan, Cody and the whole 14 member wedding party warmed up really fast with the gorgeous sunshine beaming down on us. It was just perfect!
