Wedding Photographer Val Vista Lakes
Ceremony at The Landmark
It’s always fun heading out to the east side of the Phoenix valley to the town of Gilbert. It’s not a long drive for me and my second shooter, which happens in this case to be my brother Shaun, since we are just traveling down the 60 from Tempe.
I enjoy photographing weddings next to lakes. Water is certainly at a premium in the deserts of Arizona so when we get to photograph near sparkling waters is always special.
The thing that made this wedding unusual was that the ceremony and reception themselves took place at The Landmark near downtown Mesa, but the bride and groom wanted photographs taken at Val vista Lakes before the wedding with them, the bridal party and parents.
From the website of Val Vista Lakes: “Val Vista Lakes has an abundance to offer with its shimmering waters, Lush landscapes and blooming flowers.” I think that sentence says it all when you are talking about this beautiful location.
The Landmark is also a great location, but the bride and groom just wanted something more to spice up their day. It was fun going to both locations.
I think photographing the portraits beforehand is a great idea on almost all weddings anyway because it calms the bride and groom down as well as the bridal party but also there is no lag time from the ceremony to the reception with the photographer trying to get all the images taken between the two.
And last but not least are the two photographers with the bride and groom. Its like a tradition that we have taken just before we leave the reception. That is me Jason Tarr on the right and my brother Shaun on the left.

This was a very fun couple and the weeding itself was very emotional. I hope our images showed how much love they had for each other.
