Patrick Julian Photography Phoenix, Arizona

The greenery at The Valley Garden Center located in Phoenix, Arizona is incredible! Imagine if you will, in the heart of Phoenix walking into an event space that takes you to a tropical oasis full of lush greenery and palm trees. I was instantly in awe of the gorgeous green canopy that envelops you into what felt like an exotic jungle. Birds were singing, the wind was whispering through the trees, you just truly felt as if you were off on your own little adventure. As I continued to walk around the venue I just felt more and more inspired to create artistic photographs.

I absolutely loved getting to be a part of this styled shoot with so many talented and creative wedding vendors. Our styled shoot host and fellow photographer Kate Grutsky, did a phenomenal job orchestrating everything. Our models for this event were two married couples, Bailey & James who were just recently married and Amanda & Mauricio who have been married for 10 years. Amanda jokingly told me she made sure to settle Mauricio down when he was young. These two couples were truly in love with their partners and made every photograph more passionate and full of love than the last.

Hopefully you enjoy looking at a few of these photographs below from the styled shoot because I know I sure enjoyed taking every one of them. If you or someone you know is planning their wedding be sure to follow along with my blog for helpful wedding day tips and tricks.
