The recent MJ2Day wedding photography and business workshop that I taught here in Phoenix was incredible. We spent the first day covering photography topics like shooting techniques, finding great light, composition, posing, and interacting with clients. Then we went out into the good light the hour before sunset so I could demonstrate how I run a typical engagement shoot and put into action the topics we covered earlier in the day. Our two models were Ryan and Sarah Hubbell, a super-cute married couple who were total troopers climbing mountains and posing for 10 cameras. Thank you Ryan and Sarah!! Throughout the shoot I took time to turn to the attendees and give them my thoughts on why I was making the choices I was making and what my settings were.

Interspersed within my photographs below you will also see some behind the scenes photos in black and white. Thank you to my friend Sara Nevels for taking those! I also want to thank Randi with Carte Blanche Design for the gorgeous floral crown that Sarah is wearing!
