The natural beauty of the Phoenix area lends itself to breathtaking photography, especially when it comes to shots of outdoor weddings. And the best Phoenix wedding photographers all possess the technical proficiency to deal with very bright sunlight, as well as a keen, artistic eye that assists in producing top-notch work. The playing field’s packed with amazing local talent, and we’ve put together a list of the most noteworthy photographers in the Phoenix area.

1. Pinkerton Photography

Kelsie Pinkerton creates the type of incredible images perfect for your Instagram feed. You’ll instantly notice the stylish colors, breezy aesthetic, authenticity, and true emotion. This is also reflective of Kelsie’s own personality — sweet, stylish, sensitive, and thrilled for each and every couple she photographs.

Just check out what one elated bride shared in a client testimonial after working with Kelsie: “Kelsie exceeded all of my expectations. Her photos are absolutely beautiful and I could not be more pleased with how they turned out. Our intimate wedding would have quite literally not been possible without her. From her helping us with vendors, buttoning up my dress, being a witness, and being my personal hype woman, I could not speak highly enough of Kelsie. She made our special day a dream come true.”

2. Daniel Kim Photography

Daniel Kim is a creative photographer who works alongside his talented wife. On wedding days, they look for bright sources of natural light and great angles to not only document every moment but also make distinctive compositions. You’ll love the way their photos perfectly capture the personality of each wedding, and you are sure to be awed by the duo’s bright and colorful style.

Take a look through the galleries on their website and their Instagram. We’ll bet that after you do, it won’t surprise you to learn that this hardworking duo’s photos have been published in Martha Stewart Weddings, Southern Weddings, Style Me Pretty, and more. That’s because Daniel Kim Photo is all about shooting real moments with a sunny, editorial finish.

3. Desert Sage Photography

Sage Oexman of Desert Sage Photography describes herself as “very sensitive to color,” and she keeps things bright and vivid. Modern wedding photography trends skew towards less saturated colors and more highly stylized coloring, but Sage forges her own path. She prefers trying to keep things as true to life as possible. Don’t mistake that for a lack of style, though — she’s got a great eye for producing photos with plenty of character. If you like bold colors with a “no filter” feel, check out her portfolio.

4. Thomas Shull Photography

We love the mix of candid and posed images in Thomas Shull’s work. His is the type of style that will give you beautiful, magazine-worthy shots as well as heart-string-tugging moments you’ll love to relive years down the road.

In fact, Thomas is about capturing the sweet moments that organically present themselves. Like most of the top Phoenix wedding photographers, he also looks for opportunities to incorporate Arizona’s drop-dead gorgeous landscape in the shoot — many of his photos are simply jaw-dropping.

5. Leslie D. Photography

Leslie specializes in elopements, as well as destination and traditional weddings. Her work is elegant and romantic, with the kind of whites, pinks, and greens that have taken Pinterest by storm. Her use of natural light and ability to create a softness and warm glow has helped cement her position among Phoenix’s best wedding photographers.

Leslie is also very adept at explaining the importance of an engagement shoot. So if you’re unsure if you’ll go that route, just listen to how important it can be. “Engagement sessions are an absolute blast to do and I love hanging out for an hour or two and soaking in your fun dynamic as a couple. And by the time the wedding day comes it gives for a very smooth flow of your portrait sessions”.

6. Cameron Clark

Cameron Clark’s photos are stylish and charming. She’s adept at capturing the personality of the venue, a skill that’s often overlooked. Cameron truly sets the stage, which helps convey the mood of the event. Her wide shots against the arresting backdrop of Arizona’s desert landscapes are some of the coolest in her impressive portfolio.

If you want photos that are candid and that also don’t skimp on the fun, Cameron may be your dream photographer. She has a background in photojournalism and a knack for capturing the most spirited and love-filled moments.

7. Elyse Hall Photography

Elyse Hall is a fine-art photographer with a big heart and a sensitive streak. In fact, you might catch her tearing up as the bride walks down the aisle. That’s how you know she wants to give you the most unforgettable photos she can produce. Her photos exhibit style and romance, a sweetness and timelessness that have delighted couples for years.

With nearly two decades of experience, you can count on Elyse’s professional experience as well as her personal interest in making your day amazing.

8. Andrew Jade Photo

Andrew Jade and his photography and life partner, wife Emily, seek out real moments, genuine connections, and authentic love. Their true specialty is fine-art photography, which often lends itself to dramatic looks and intense gazes. At the same time, Andrew and Emily strive to capture candid moments, the ones you will want to remember forever.

As such, Andrew Jade’s love for authenticity, coupled with technical control via directing and posing couples, results in stunning photos that nonetheless feel natural and unscripted.

9. La Bella Vita Photography

According to reviewers, Cheryl Clark of La Bella Vita is a firecracker personality with the ability to make people immediately feel like old friends. In fact, her work feels like it’s shot with a real affection for the people pictured, from the couples themselves to their friends and family.

Cheryl’s portfolio comprises crisp, timeless, and sweet images, the kind of wedding photography that never goes out of style.

10. Frances + Tony Photography & Films

Frances and Tony are married photographers who pride themselves on being particularly well-organized. This is a desirable trait to have in your wedding photographers, as it ensures you get all the pictures you deserve without cutting into your wedding’s timeline and stalling the momentum. That’s what separates the true professionals from the amateurs.

Then, of course, there’s the work itself, which, in Frances and Tony’s case, is passionate and even poignant. In addition, the team’s black-and-white work is particularly captivating.

11. Hailey Golich Photography

Hailey Golich spends most of her time outdoors, loves to travel, and has a truly adventurous spirit. As such, she’s an ideal photographer for couples that want to shoot engagement photos in dramatic natural locales. And, of course, there are plenty of those landscapes around Phoenix.

Hailey’s at her very best when shooting outdoor weddings, where she can incorporate the beauty of the surroundings to complement the gorgeousness of the ceremony. 

12. Tiffany & Ryland Photography

Tiffany and Ryland are a truly dynamic couple — you can find them sharing corny jokes you just can’t help but laugh at or brainstorming creative new photoshoot ideas. That same happy energy is obvious in their work.

Tiffany and Ryland’s galleries are full of people smiling the biggest smiles of their lives, and those couples will be able to go back and remember that pure happiness for the rest of their lives.

13. Rachelle Welling

Rachelle Welling is a recent Phoenix transplant from Michigan who serves wedding clients that want their photos to look like art. With over 100 five-star reviews, there’s no wondering why. Her work has brought her to Sedona, Chicago, Colombia and has been featured in regional and national publications. Rachelle’s photography is for couples who have always done things a little differently than the status quo and seek the same for their wedding day. She specializes in making you feel comfortable in front of the camera and confident that the in-between moments you care about most are captured.

Bonus: Allison Slater Photography

If you want wedding photos that are as epic as the Sedona mountains, then you need to contact Allison Slater. She is a wedding photographer dually based in Arizona and Oregon, and man, does she take advantage of both states’ extreme natural beauty in her work!

Allison is a virtuoso when it comes to outdoor photography, making use of radiant golden light and working with couples who clearly trust her implicitly. All of which pays off immensely, as you’ll see when you thumb through her portfolio.
