Wedding season kicked off in February for me this year, not in SoCal, but in Arizona. This one wedding brought me out to Phoenix at the Secret Garden Event Center. In the middle of winter, daytime skies were tinted green with patchy clouds stretching in every direction. It was Arizona’s version of overcast and it lended itself to me on this day.
The elegant personal expressions like the vintage cape Alexa’s grandmother wore for her wedding, her white opera gloves for the first dance, TJ’s custom cufflinks nodding to the Southwest are things I live for in my photography. If I shot the entire day in black and white film, I feel like the story would still maintain its flow and mood. I’d accept the challenge. Would you?
