The Scottsdale Wedding Photographer and The Harley, Part Deux

I mentioned in an earlier post that I got to work with a boy, a girl and a bike. I'm in the middle of post production and wanted to share a few images on-line. Thomas and Doreen, you look great!

The Scottsdale Wedding photographs Tasha at The Boojum Tree.

Tasha is your girl when it comes to weddings and events at The Boojum Tree in Phoenix. I interviewed her recently for our studio newsletter and did a few funky headshots that show her multi-faceted sides.

Thanks, Tasha, for such a fun session!

The Scottsdale Wedding Photographer and Harley Davidson.

I have a short list of things I want to do, things I want to use my photography as an excuse to experience...finding wild horses and seeing them run, kicking up dust where only animals roam (this one I hope is coming soon)...sitting quiet watching wolf pups explore in person, not on TV...chasing cowboys on the rodeo circuit (yeah I know this one's a cliche, but i still want to do it myself)...going on the road with musician friends and documenting that life...feeling the wind on my face on the open road, on a motorcycle, photographing the people that ride them, the places they're drawn to, the reasons they ride...

On Friday I got a teaser on that last one...I have a wonderful couple getting married this Spring, he has a passion for Harley's and was gracious enough to ride in some bitter cold all the way to Cave Creek so I would have the bike as a prop for their engagement photos. There wasn't much wind, there wasn't the road, but for a few minutes I had a Harley.

Images coming soon...Thanks Thomas and Doreen!

I'm feeling kind of floral today...Here at our Scottsdale Wedding Photography gallery it's been unusually cold and wet and I'm ready for Spring so I've decided to share some of my favorite floral images.

Enjoy the images? Tell me what you think by clicking on the pencil icon below the last one.

Old Town Scottsdale is a funky place for engagement photography. There are old peeling walls, bright colors and walkways that lead into art galleries and a sculpture garden. I took a walk with Brooke and Randal and this is what we found.

Looked up in the sky and saw a heart yesterday afternoon...the rest of the writing had melted in the breeze but could make out a faint "m" and thought it was part of a marriage proposal.

Heard later that it was a Birthday Greeting for Muhamed Ali! It was his 65th Birthday. Hope he was outside to see it from his house, too. Happy Birthday!

What the Scottsdale Wedding Photographer does when she's not chasing brides:

This weekend we celebrated my birthday at one of my favorite diner's, Matt's Big Breakfast in the heart of downtown Phoenix. Matt's is retro and so today, too. Everything Matt makes is good and good for you, Even Bacon and Eggs!!! It was sooooo damn cold and there is always a line down the block to get into this amazing little place, but you won't find a tastier breakfast...some day I'm going to brave the line for lunch, too.

Engagement photography in Phoenix is so much fun! After all, you can find anything from downtown skyscrapers to desert rocks. I went out in search of the desert with Kim and Mike and this is what we found, in the middle of Phoenix.
