Thanks for stopping by our blog! We bring you timely information, tips, ideas and inspiration about Wedding Photography in Phoenix, locations throughout Arizona and destination weddings around the world.
It was a beautiful, cool and cloudy day at Pointe Hilton Tapatio Cliffs Resort in Phoenix and Kati was preparing to walk down the aisle to tie the knot with Ryan. They chose A Different Point of View, the famous five star Phoenix restaurant high atop the Hilton resort with spectacular views of the valley of the sun, sunset and the city lights. Kati and Ryan wanted to take full advantage of the spectacular views of the afternoon and evening and have their guests enjoy the wonderful Arizona spring weather.
Great wedding and engagement photography was very important to Kati and Ryan and we had the opportunity to custom design their guest sign-in book for their wedding using their favorites from the engagement shoot.
Kati chose the whole purple family of colors for her wedding motif, succulents for flowers and a gorgeous heart shaped backless, lace dress. The couple chose to have a private and very romantic first look at a pretty narrow walkway leading to the restaurant where Kati revealed her beautiful wedding gown. Kati and Ryan couldn't have chosen a more breathtaking location with its gorgeous panoramic view for the ceremony, cocktails and reception. The clouds cleared for a spectacular sunset and the view of the twinkling city lights and the wedding party and guests danced the night away to their favorite music. To top the night off, Kati & Ryan did a walk through the scenic patio overlooking the city with their guests and everyone waving sparklers and cheering for the new married couple. It was another glorious, successful wedding to remember and we were so honored to be a part of it. Congratulations to the newly minted Mr. & Mrs. Roths!

The photography team at LightRain Images was pleasantly surprised last week by one of our brides posting an article on our Face Book news feed showing that LightRain Images was named one of the 10 best wedding photographers in Phoenix! It was a nice surprise and an honor to be recognized by The Top 10 Best Wedding Vendors.
We are not sure of the selection criteria or exactly who owns this on-line magazine, but we were not solicited for an ad, so we might as well enjoy the honor to be ranked along side other wonderfully skilled photographers. : )
Now, back to post production, Photoshop and graphic design work making our clients look stunning in the breathtaking backdrops we love photographing.
We love to collaborate with our clients and encourage interesting and unusual settings that capture the essence of who they are and what they like. On one of our recent wonderful engagement photo shoots in Sedona, Arizona, our adventurous couple enthusiastically agreed to hike to a very scenic lookout high up between two towering red rocks.
The peaks are perfectly positioned with the gap at the correct angle for the setting sun to settle right in the chasm at this time of year making for a gorgeous sunset backdrop. The hike was rigorous, but not too terribly difficult and was well worth it as we enjoyed the view of the valleys and mountains in the distance and made good use of the spectacular surroundings and sunset as we photographed hundred of poses and angles. Mirah and Govind even brought a change of clothes to show off the beautiful traditional Indian wedding outfits in this spectacular scene.
The hike back down the mountain was done carefully with flashlights, but we made numerous stops to enjoy and to photograph the billions of stars overhead. What a great life experience for this wonderful couple and for us. We felt very privileged to capture this unique photo session with them and are looking forward to some breathtaking wedding photography.
