Two Tempe Brothers Team Up to Photograph Wedding in Clarkdale Arizona

This was another wedding that I was really looking forward to photographing.

I had met with Mary and Josh a few months before to shoot their engagement portraits in Scottsdale.

They were so much fun that I knew the wedding would be also.

What a precious couple they are and very affectionate. It made shooting both the engagement and the wedding itself easy to come up with great ideas for posing.

My brother Shaun would be my second shooter on this day.

We have worked many weddings together over the years as professional photographers.

Clarksdale is about 116 miles outside of Tempe where I live going straight up the I-17 and then west.

The drive took us about 2 and a half hours but we decided to leave extra early so it we give me and Shaun a chance to scope out the wedding location for great ideas and backgrounds so we could hit the ground running when we started.

The bridal party consisted of 7 girls and 7 boys with one flower girl and one ring bearer.

I photographed all the girls dressing to start the day and then did the brides side of the family portraits when they were ready. We hid the bride and did the same for the guys.

The wedding itself was in a beautiful decorated hall at the Clarkdale Memorial Clubhouse.

The whole setting had a very small town America feel with wonderful sites surrounding us. We did not have to go far to take great images.

After the wedding, we took the family and full bridal portraits right back in where the wedding took place.

The reception hall was right next door and very convenient.

I had talked with Mary and Josh beforehand and decided we would start the reception with dancing and when the sun started to set I would take the two of them out and shoot their portraits at that time.

What a great idea it was because we could not have had a better evening sky.

As I dove back down to the valley I reflected on how much fun this one day photography trip had been and I was looking forward to revisiting it again as I edited the images.

This wedding was a real joy to photograph and an honor to share this special day with this whole family.
