Sondra+Danny=Faith

Steadfast. Unshakable. True. That is the faith Sondra & Danny have in each other, in their shared beliefs, in the power of their love & the promise of their future together.

And it was so inspiring to share in it and document their connection during their San Diego engagement session, their Scottsdale YOU+ME bride & groom session, and their beautiful wedding day at Phoenix's Villa Siena.

Here are some of our favorites from their engagement session.

A little sassy.



A lot romantic.



Balboa Park is a dream to photograph at. Here's a few spreads from their Guest Book.





Then it was off to the beach! California boy Danny proposed to small-town BC (Lillooet, to be exact!) girl Sondra on the sand in the sunshine so of course we had to go down to the ocean!



Tilt-shift loveliness.



Palm trees - the perfect frame. :)



Another of our fav Guest Book spreads with lots of open space above and below the images for guests to write their good wishes & tell these two how hot they look!


A fun couple plus that soft magic hour California light - can't beat that combo!






We had such a great time capturing their totally-connected-togetherness in San Diego. And it was just the beginning! Here's a sneak peek from Part II:



And Part III:



Check back soon to see images from their YOU+ME session and perfectly beautiful wedding day.

Your images are absolutely amazing!! I'm a huge fan. May I ask what a good resource on tilt shift photography would be? I've been googling and it seems that it's a technique or a lens or done in photo shop. I would like to know what it really is and how it's done. Your tilt shift images are so astounding. Very artistic. I would appreciate the help!

Thanks for your comment Rhendy! We use the Canon TS-E 45mm, not sure of any resources for tilt shift photography, you just have to get out there & play with it!

Rhendy Amador said...

Awesome! Thanks for letting me know. I love the affect. It makes the images look really artistic and just a little unearthly and magical. When I google about it all it talks about is how tilt shift makes life size things look like little and unreal, but that's not the way your images look. They just look fantastic. Thanks for responding so quickly! Keep up the great inspiring work!!
