SECRET GARDEN WEDDING PHOENIX | ADRIANNA & TARIK | ARIZONA WEDDING PHOTOGRAPHER

I love the American Southwest and was so excited when bride Adrianna contacted me about photographing her wedding in Phoenix. I had photographed Adrianna’s matron-of-honor’s wedding last year at Spruce Mountain Ranch, and am so grateful that Adrianna had loved the photography that I created for Kyle & Scott…and how cool to see Kyle and Scott again in Phoenix! Adrianna has an angelic beauty; she looked so gorgeous in her gown by Maggie Sottero Designs and gorgeous cathedral length veil. The gold calligraphy of their invitation suite and vow booklets was simply exquisite. It was a very warm late April day…97F to be exact, but the cool shaded environment of their venue The Secret Garden Event Center was heavenly. I adored their outdoor reception area designed by Regina of Meant2Be Events! The groom Tarik reminds me of a gentlemen from Downtown Abbey and I loved capturing his expressions as he saw Adrianna come down the aisle. And Tarik’s talented sister who composed and recited a poem dedicated to the couple at the ceremony…how amazing! I wish Adrianna and Tarik all the best in their new life together in DC and hope to get to see you in the future! Thank you so much for everything!

    I had an incredible experience with Lisa O’Dwyer as my wedding photographer and I absolutely LOVE my wedding photos! She is a true professional and offers the highest quality of product and customer service.
    Lisa was referred to me by my matron of honor, who had hired Lisa for her wedding the previous year. I appreciate Lisa’s willingness to fly from Colorado to Arizona to shoot my wedding, as well as her making time to Skype with me to answer my questions ahead of time. Lisa also made time to meet with my mom and me while she was visiting Arizona a few months before the wedding.
    When looking for a photographer, Lisa stood out to me because of her experience and passion to capture moments that I will share with family and generations to come. She’s been a photographer for more than 10 years, has a degree in Art History and has spent many years traveling and living abroad… all of which are represented in her work and I think make her a top choice for a wedding photographer.
    On my wedding day, Lisa arrived on time, full of energy and ready to capture each moment. She adapted to the unpredictable moments a wedding day can bring, while still getting all the shots I requested and more. Lisa and her assistant knew exactly what shots they needed from getting ready time, to the ceremony, to dinner and dancing. I was very pleased they photographed all angles of the ceremony, captured many special moments and thought of shots I did not. They truly showed their professionalism and experience.
    I couldn’t be happier with my wedding photos! Lisa’s classic, elegant style is evident in every photo and it was a perfect match with our romantic, garden wedding. Each photo exudes her passion for people, emotion, art, history, nature and architecture. Lisa captured so many special moments and every detail I wanted. I can’t thank her enough for the joy the photos bring me each time I look at them.
    Lisa O’Dwyer delivers on every aspect of an outstanding wedding photographer. She goes above and beyond to make sure couples have an amazing experience before, during and after the wedding. I highly recommend her for any couple getting married!
