Tony and Karina are dear friends. Warm and easy going they are a pleasure to be around. When they chose the Tempe Center for the Arts as their venue I was elated. It’s a beautiful location with interesting architecture, bridges and water. They planned a very private, immediate family only ceremony with dinner at The Buttes afterwood.
After an emotional ceremony we found a quiet little area behind the tempe arts center for some wonderful family portraits. The timing was just perfect and we had the most beautiful light for the portraits. After the family portraits we did a few bride and groom portraits. The photo of them in the water has minimal photoshop. The negative edge reflecting pond really looks that way.
We eventually made our way back to The Buttes in Tempe for a celebratory dinner. Karina and Tony are planning a backyard reception and we’re looking forward to some more wonderful photos.
It’s interesting to note that the lead photograph is not edited in any way. I captured what the scene really looked like that day.
