It was a great experience being Darcy and Frank’s wedding photographer at the Arizona Biltmore because the day was pure emotion. One of the things that I love most about weddings is that they are a true merging of two families and this wedding was a very strong reminder of that. I was deeply moved seeing Frank’s and Darcy’s families become one family in front of my eyes. It isn’t any particular moment that happened at a certain part of the day; it was an all day occurrance and it was beautiful.
This amazing wedding was planned by the super talented Rhonda Rush of Impact Events. My second shooter was Nick Tillinghast and he did a great job. I looove photographing weddings at the Arizona Biltmore because the place has so much character and amazing light everywhere. Another special treat for us was to enjoy Dave Strickland of Desert House Productions as a DJ; which can be a challenge sometimes because many times I feel like putting my camera down to start dancing.
The following photos are some of my personal favorites from the wedding day.
