Katie + David Highlight Film

I'm so very excited to present Katie + David's Highlight Film! The words spoken at their wedding were moving and beautiful, making the experience of both photographing and filming their day one I'll never forget. The Orme Family Ranch has seen many weddings in its 90 year history, and I may be a little bias here, but this one has to top them all in representing what family is all about.

Nöel + Dan

I’ve known Nöel for a couple of years. We both worked together at the University of Arizona tutoring center as we pursued our graduate degrees (higher education for Nöel, school psychology for me). I remember first liking Nöel because we often had the same criticisms of this Malcom Gladwell book we had a weekly discussion on (part of our job requirement was an assigned book reading. I have no idea why so don’t ask). I remember thinking, “Hey, she thinks like me!” You know what they say about great minds. So, when she asked me to film her wedding I said heck yes.

The entire day was a lot of fun. Nöel and Dan just had their new home in the barrio renovated, which made preparations a visual delight. The lines were just amazing - so many interesting architectural shapes and designs that the photographers (Keith & Melissa) and I were sort of like kids in a candy shop going, “Oh this would be a cool shot” and “That angle would be perfect!” I also tried to incorporate aspects of their new home as somewhat of a metaphor for their relationship: new home, new marriage, new life together. The ceremony was out in Saguaro West, which has the absolute best cacti vista you can imagine. Go visit it, seriously:

The reception was at the Tucson Museum of Modern Art (MOCA), which was also the venue for Rebecca & Frank’s wedding (click here to see their film). The place is awesome, although I got yelled at by one of the museum employees. I was engrossed in filming things when I leaned up against a wall to steady my shot. At least I thought it was a wall. Turns out it was a giant piece of art. The lady ran over to scorn and remind me that no touching was allowed. I was deathly embarrassed and apologized.

My favorite part of Nöel & Dan’s wedding? Their tandem bicycle entrance. Hands down. Awesome, original, and completely them. Though if I had to pick a second favorite it would be the deserts. SO MANY DESERTS. I never had a sweet tooth until my wife forced me to develop one, and boy, was it in heaven. They tasted as good as they looked:

I want to conclude with a shout-out to Nöel’s mom, Diane, for being awesome. She was so fun to chat and laugh with throughout the day. Here’s a fun fact: She has a major crush on Mick Jagger. I couldn’t help but to immortalize her forever by posting the video below on her Facebook wall. She's a good sport so I think she’ll forgive me, in time.

Robyn + Basil

We present Robyn + Basil! Married at the Sanctuary at Camelback in Scottsdale, Arizona. Throughout the day and night, Basil was the dip MASTER. He capitalized on every opportunity to take Robyn on a short ride in his arms - take notes, grooms-to-be. Reception toasts had a lovely collection of prescription jokes (something Matt and I thoroughly enjoyed) and an fiery sparkler exit. Enjoy!

Shout out to an awesome vendor team: Denise (What A Day Weddings, Scottsdale based) and Lexi Moody (www.leximoodyphotography.com, Phoenix based). We had a super duper fun time working with you guys!
