Location. Location. Location.
It’s as important to wedding planning as it is to real estate. Every bride and groom want to find the perfect backdrop for their wedding day – and in a city the size of Phoenix, there are plenty of options for an amazing wedding venue. Although a good photographer can create a beautiful image just about anywhere, the right location can bring your photographs to an entirely different level.
I was thrilled when the lovely Keri Doolittle invited me to join awesome local wedding photographers Kimberly Bee and Tina Burnham, along with some beautiful models, for an afternoon at one of the valley’s most stunning wedding venues. The Boojum Tree is a hidden jewel, tucked away at the end of a little street, and full of more photographic yumminess than we could possibly capture. Every time I turned a corner I stumbled upon yet another deliciously vintage, lush, romantic spot. Tremendous variety, quirky, unexpected touches, private hideaways…
It was, quite seriously, a little slice of photography heaven.
I saw this phone booth and thought ‘Are you kidding me?’. How to make a wedding photographer happy….give her a stunning model, a beautiful dress and a vintage red phone booth. I tell you, I was giddy!
The flowers were BEAUTIFUL!
One of the things that matters most to wedding photographers is light, and The Boojum Tree has the most beautiful light almost everywhere – it’s like magic!
Oh – the shoes! The hoes! I leave almost all bridal sessions and weddings with the inexplicable urge to go shoe shopping!
Many thanks to all the amazing vendors who made this session so incredible! You all ROCK!
