Recently I was honored to photograph the cover of the Summer/Fall 2014 issue of Phoenix Bride & Groom Magazine. What a joy to work with so many talented industry creatives who collaborated on this issue and cover theme, including: Fran Samuel (Publisher of Phoenix Bride & Groom), JW Marriott Desert Ridge Resort & Spa (Venue), Victoria Canada Weddings & Events (Stylist), Butterfly Petals (Floral Design), Shaffer’s Gowns (wedding dress from the Scottsdale bridal boutique), Babydoll Weddings (Makeup & Hair) and model Jessica of The Agency Arizona.
With a whimsical, romantic theme set in motion, I love how Butterfly Petals took Victoria’s idea of over sized, paper flowers and really brought them to life. The flowers provided such a multidimensional backdrop that worked so well with the model. Combined with wedding gown, it had a somewhat “Alice in Wonderland” feel to me, and I think that played into how I set up several of the images with the model.
Here is the finished cover, as well as some of my other favorite images from this shoot. Thank you Fran and team for such a wonderful experience!
