Lauren and Rodney’s Ocotillo Phoenix Wedding

May 14, 2020

I end up being friends with most of my clients on some level. What can I say, you are all pretty damn cool. A mutual friend introduced Lauren and Rodney to me as they were looking for a wedding photographer. Unbeknownst to me, I’d see Rodney just about a month or so later while shooting at Phoenix Raceway where he worked and I shot twice a year. Having that friend in common meant I also got to meet up with them more than most couples before and since the wedding. They are two of the nicest, most chill people who also fiercely love their dogs like my wife and I do ours, dig sports (Rodney used to work for the Suns!), and have some deep bonds with good friends easily seen on their wedding day. I’ve enjoyed becoming friends with them too. They are pretty damn cool. 

Here are some of the best shots from their Hotel Valley Ho and Ocotillo Phoenix wedding.
