We normally don’t post photo shoots, but when Desert Mountain Preserve reopened as La Princessa, we thought it would be a good opportunity to showcase the beauty of this special place. Enjoy!

Savannah & Garret’s Wedding Day
Melana and I will be at the Bridal Fashion Debut on Sunday. Our booth is on the left side of the main entrance, and we will be showing some of our latest wedding videos. We look forward to seeing our family of vendors, many of whom have become good friends.
We’ll see you there!
-Dana & Melana
Besides the beauty of the bride and groom, the beauty of the flowers and decorative design done by Teonna was indescribable. Since Michael and Martha didn’t ask for a music video, we put together this video mostly for Teonna (Teonna’s Floral Design) to highlight some of her work. You can see how gifted she is at creating the perfect wedding!
One of many matches made by eHarmony. We laughed all day and night with these two and their families and friends. They even put together a knock off of an eHarmony commercial on themselves that had all of us rolling. Even under the gorgeous brick gazebo of Stonebridge Manor and with a touching ceremony performed by the bride’s grandfather, there was still so much humor and light-heartedness. They truly managed to match their day to their personalities. Flint (Fotos by Flint) and Nick of NDK Professional DJ Service really knew how to capture Chad and Paige’s style as well. Such a fun day.
Live Streaming is a valuable tool whenever a loved one physically cannot be at your wedding and cannot wait to see the footage. At this wedding the mother of the groom watched her son’s wedding ceremony from a hospital room. Even though the ceremony site was in a remote location (i.e. no internet) we were able to stream the video footage live — not only to her hospital room, but to friends and relatives around the country.
Due to the amount of people watching the live remote, I posted the ceremony on my web site:
Sickness is not the only reason to have your event streamed. It can be a budget-saver. The #1 way to reduce your wedding budget is to limit the number of attendees. With live video (or video in general) you can offer those of whom you cannot afford to invite with a meaningful way to “be there”.
We are so thankful to hear from our clients that they have been blessed by our work:
“Just watched the video last night and we were thrilled with it!!! You did a GREAT job! We LOVED the music video – thank you soooooo much for the extra effort, we both really appreciate it very much. It was a pleasure to watch and relive that moment in time and I think we both fell in love all over again watching it – it was so cool. Thanks a million times.”
-Joe and Lisa Martin
“I just want to thank you for the wedding video. It was just beautiful. We had heard horror stories about videographers, but you did a great job and were very professional. It was beautiful.”
Thank you Joe, Lisa and Lori for your kinds words.
Starting with the end of the night, which Isabel called Crazy Hour, you can get a sense of the whole day! We had a blast with Manuel and Isabel. You can even see in their music video how much humor they had in them. Isabel’s family carried their Venezuelan culture throughout the day but especially when it came to partying all night long. Manuel (Manny), although he appeared quite serious, had another side as well. They were just so happy…throughout their whole beings…to be married to each other. And they couldn’t have been happier having so many friends and family with them this night. Some of our favorite moments were filming Isabel’s gorgeous cathedral veil flowing down the aisle, watching Manny and his twin brother giving praise to ASU although being U of A graduates, seeing the love Isabel’s brother had for her during his toast, and seeing nearly every guest get out on the dance floor the entire night! Enjoy the party!
There were countless moments of Jon and Joan’s wedding day that will forever stand out in our memories. What we believe to be the most remarkable would be the purest love we’ve ever seen: their love for God and their love for each other. You could not help but be effected by how much their family and friends meant to their lives. All 600 of their family and friends! Jon is a worship leader at his church and knew how to how to have fun and involve everyone. They even sought out Arizona Biltmore because there was enough room for 600 people to dance!
We thoroughly enjoyed each moment of the day, from the preparation where Joan was listening to an iPod from Jon full of their favorite songs, to the ceremony where we were in tears of joy and laughter along with their guests, to the special ceremony held for their immediate family and bridal party and another one called a tea ceremony held for grandmothers and parents, and then to the incredible reception made special by several heartfelt toasts and accented with everything pink (including flip flops and a candy buffet). We could not have felt more honored being part of such a celebration! Blessings to you Jon and Joan!

An absolutely unforgettable wedding at the Scottsdale Resort and Conference Center ! We love our military, and to film a wedding for our nation’s finest is such an honor for us. Plus, they certainly know how to have fun! Infinity Entertainment may have had something to do with creating quite the party, too. And, of course, Terri was stunning! Another honor was to have filmed Terri’s wedding as well as her twin sister’s wedding last year (another military wedding)! We fell in love with this couple’s passion, humor and beauty. This wedding video has incorporated many of their engagement photos taken by Kenneth Robert Images. They really contributed to the mood of the song. Thank you, Kenneth!
This was a day full of love, family and surprises (including a visit from the Phoenix Suns Gorilla!). These two are surrounded by the love of hundreds of family members and friends, and that love was poured out on them all day. We felt privileged to witness and capture all of their special moments. Enjoy this music video of their wedding at St. Thomas the Apostle Catholic Church and reception at Ashley Manor. Thanks to Alan (Moments Found Photography) and Jeff Nelson the DJ. We made such a great team to orchestrate a day Adam and Stacey will never forget…nor will we.
