Tim and Brittany’s Wedding at the Boojum Tree in Phoenix, Arizona

April 1st, 2016 — 12:08pm

I photographed Brittany and Tim’s wedding at The Boojum Tree in Phoenix, Arizona. The wedding was packed full of beautiful ideas, tender moments and wonderful people.

My favorite photographs from the wedding

This first photo was one of my favorite details in the wedding. Later, during the ceremony, the bride and groom will braid and tie the three cords, signifying their partnership with Christ in their union.  I thought it was beautifully done.

The dress (Tara Keely by Lazaro from Destiny’s Bridal) was absolutely beautiful. The bride had the sleeves added by Destiny’s and as you will see later, it was the perfect thing to do, and so well done.

The entire wedding party was wearing little homages to Star Wars and it all starts with the bride’s R2D2 heels.

The grooms cufflinks quoted the interchange between Han Solo and Princess Leah just before the empire puts Han into carbon freezing.

“I love you.”

“I know.”

I love photos through reflections in glass and of course the moment was a perfect one.

The bride and groom choose a “First Look”

The first look is always a tender moment. It is such a wonderful way for the bride and groom to see each other for the first time. The traditional “don’t see the bride before the ceremony” is a fine way to do things as well, but I think that there is far more tenderness in the first look.

00100-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

Tim and Brittany took a little walk into the green house at the Boojum Tree for a little one on one time.

00113-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

With me shooting from a distance.

00116-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

Brittany made her own flowers out of cloth and buttons. They were quite impressive and I am told, they took a very long time to make. But they will also last a lot longer!

00126-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

There are the Star Wars Storm Trooper socks.  And who can argue with the fashionable and COMFORTABLE shoes. That is a bride who truly cares about her bride’s maids.

00143-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

The groomsmen were all a bunch of nuts and very happy with their hosiery as well.

00211-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

It’s all about the flowers and the dress. Brittany couldn’t have found a better dress.

00228-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

The wedding portrait session

Our portrait session consisted the couple of myself and my assistant (with a Profoto B1 off camera light). We spent about twenty minutes making their official portraits, but the moments between them are the absolute best.

00240-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00243-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

The Boojum Tree is full of perfect backdrops and locations. Everywhere you turn is another opportunity for a great photograph. It is a full 360 degree visual feast, which is great because that means you will always be able to find the perfect lighting condition. Some great open shade and the addition of one light is all it took.

00253-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

Oh, and of course the beautiful couple.

00258-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

I absolutely love this portrait of Brittany. She shows off the dress perfectly.

Tim is great in front of the camera, it was such a great experience photographing him. Many times, the groom is not all that excited about portraits and photos, but Tim loves the camera and it loves him.

00277-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

While we were take the couple’s portraits, I spun around to find a number of the bride’s maids watching from the gazebo. I asked the rest to join them to get this shot.

00281-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

Seriously cute kids were all over this wedding, all of them dressed to the nines.

00307-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00343-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

I loved the flower girls’ dresses. Full of texture!

00379-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

A tender wedding full of powerful moments to photograph

This is one of my favorite shots from the day. During the ceremony, the bride and groom will be reading love notes to one another, so the bride holds hers in her hands. The “kiss me” detail on her nail is perfect.

00389-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

This was another great detail. All down the isle were these texture rich collages with scriptures. I thought it was meaningful and beautiful.

00393-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00407-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

Here comes the ring. Notice the ear piece in the protective detail.

00435-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00444-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

The bride’s father lead her to the beginning of the isle and turned to her to read a special note to her before taking her the rest of the way down the isle to her groom. I loved this idea, it was a very tender moment between a father and daughter.

00458-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00463-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

When the bride and groom read their love notes to each other, it was just to each other, no mics. They were not speaking for the benefit of the crowd. They were speaking only to one another.

00498-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00501-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

That is the kind of tenderness and intimacy that makes a wedding great.

00514-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

The braiding and tying of the three cords was a great idea, but I especially liked the images I was able to capture during the process.

00519-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00522-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00535-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00538-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

Both the bride and groom are so expressive. It just makes it fun to photograph them. I could wait patiently, knowing that at one point they would both give me beautiful expressions that were full of life.

00564-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00568-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00573-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

How often do you see the Groom pick up his bride and carry her down the isle after the ceremony? So perfect!

00575-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00579-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

The tables were set in the green house, but the Tim and Brittany were the first to see the room.

00591-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

During the cocktail hour, we shot all the family portraits and a few others, like this cute little shot of the flower girls and the bride.

00663-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

It wasn’t visible to the crowd at the wedding, but the little boy in the wagon was carrying the safe to transport the rings.

00678-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

Another one of my absolute favorites. That veil was made for her and not by a dress shop. Her mother-in-law made that veil. So delicate.

00682-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00740-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

00743-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

The battle at the cake table was intense!

00768-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

Tim and Brittany are too fun!

00780-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

00782-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

Tim was a bartender at one time, so I thought this shot would be an appropriate image.

00815-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona

With minutes to the end, the bride sneaks away to pack up her things for the get away!

00864-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

So much energy, expression and love.  It is always my pleasure to be a part of every wedding I photograph. Brittany and Tim, your wedding was an absolute joy as are you both.

00872-wedding-photography-boojum-tree-phoenix-arizona-l

I wish you both the best of everything as you head off into the unknown!

Photographing with the Panasonic GH4

March 4th, 2015 — 11:49am

I had the opportunity to shoot a wedding in Ripe, England with the Panasonic GH4.  This camera is a compact, light-weight camera with lenses so small you can fit them in the pocket of your jacket.  I have always carried around a little Canon point and shoot that takes RAW images, but no point and shoot can match the experience of a SLR style, through the lens viewfinder experience.  So the GH4 made for the perfect traveling companion.   I kept it with me throughout the wedding, and as I traveled throughout the country before and after the job.  While I shot, I has little experiments in mind, like latitude experiments and macro experiments, low light and motion experiments.  I have posted the results here in the blog.  The incredible thing about this little camera is that it also captures 4k video as well, but we will stick with the still photos for this post.

In this image of the pipe organ in St. John the Baptist church, where the couple was married, I was able to truly test the Panasonic GH4's exposure latitude capabilities.  The church was quite dark inside and yet, I was able to capture full detail inside and outside.

In this image of the pipe organ in St. John the Baptist church, where the couple was married, I was able to truly test the Panasonic GH4’s exposure latitude capabilities. The church was quite dark inside and yet, I was able to capture full detail inside and outside.  I fully expected that I would not be able to maintain any detail in the exterior exposure, but I was pleasantly surprised by the latitude on this little camera.

The wedding couple took a walk along the southern coast of England before the wedding.

The wedding couple took a walk along the southern coast of England before the wedding.  Carrying a heavy SLR and its heavier lenses on a long walk is not all that much fun.  In fact carting equipment around makes me wonder why I chose to be a photographer in the first place.  But with a camera as small and light as the GH4 and its sharp little lenses that weigh almost nothing and fit almost anywhere, I was carrying three lenses and camera and I hardly knew I had anything with me.  At times I had to double check to make sure I had a camera.  Typically a light, compact camera means poor photos, but the GH4 breaks that rule.

It was a leisurely stroll and yes, we stopped to admire the flowers.

It was a leisurely stroll and yes, we stopped to admire the flowers and I tested my need for macro!  The GH4 was perfect, in fact, the digital view finder allowed me to see exactly what my depth of field looked like while taking the shot.  That something that a traditional SLR won’t do for you.

The white cliffs made for a stunning coastline.

The white cliffs made for a stunning coastline.  Here again, I was battling a latitude challenge with the bright sun peeking through the clouds, but the GH4 held the detail in the brightest spots of the clouds and even in the shimmer on the water behind the couple walking near the cliff.

Silence at a wedding is golden, especially in an old stone church.  The GH4 has a completely silent mode that makes  me as a photographer invisible to  everyone at the wedding.

Silence at a wedding is golden, especially in an old stone church. The GH4 has a completely silent mode that makes me as a photographer invisible to everyone at the wedding and since my greatest wish is to be invisible at a wedding, this was a perfect camera for the job.  While I was shooting the wedding with both my Canon and the GH4, I found myself choosing the GH4 for all of the close shots as I crept down the isle.  They may have seen me there, but I can guarantee you, no one heard me.

Not only could the GH4 give me great back and white images from the church, but it provided excellent color in a dark church.

Smaller chips often yield more noise, so I tested the GH4 for noise and found that the color noise was extremely low and the grain structure feels ver natural. I am a sucker for a beautiful grain structure. I know… its nerdy.

This little angel was my subject for a few days. The grooms niece and I chased each other around the grounds of the church for a little while as the bride and groom chatted with heir guests. The articulating screen on the camera allowed me to follow her around at a long angle and grab shots of her as we ran. Ordinarily, I would be taking shots like this completely blind, wasting 20 shots to get one that was in focus and composed correctly. But because I could see her in the articulating screen at all times and the GH4’s auto focus was tracking her face, I never missed a shot. It’s always nice to have a lot of images to choose from.

Wedding in Ripe England

Like many churches in England, the cemetery surrounds the church, so when the little girls play on the church grounds, they play amid the tombstones of their ancestors. The groom’s Godfather rests in this cemetery. Was was fascinated by the casual and playful attitude of the children amongst the stones. They see them as just that, stones. I couldn’t present this image in color. It needed to be a black and white. It just deserved it. The GH4 makes exquisite black and white images from its RAW files.

After the wedding, I took a drive to Stratford Upon Avon to catch a little Shakespeare.  Before the show, I took in the character of the old english buildings.

After the wedding, I took a drive to Stratford Upon Avon to catch a little Shakespeare. Before the show, I took in the character of the old english buildings.  It handled the latitude and the saturation issues on the chimneys very well.

After the show, I tested the higher ISO settings on the GH4 and at 3200 ISO, the camera produces a very nice grain structure with low color noise.  I was completely happy with its extremely low light capabilities.

After the show, I tested the higher ISO settings on the GH4 and at 3200 ISO, the camera produces a very nice grain structure with low color noise. I was completely happy with its extremely low light capabilities.  I couldn’t have asked for a better image in that light.

My total experience with the Panasonic GH4 was wonderful. It’s small and lightweight body and lenses make it the perfect camera for hiking, and traveling. The quality is quite good and when compared to any small sensor camera, is absolutely fantastic. One could use the camera as their only camera and carry four times the lenses in half the space. Using it in conjunction with my smart phone was helpful as well. Rather than taking decent photos on my iPhone to post on social media, I was able to take superior images on the GH4 and send them to my phone for social media purposes.

The only draw back on the camera is the increase in depth of field due to the chip size and lens lengths. But that is a standard issue with micro four-thirds cameras. For those of us who like to live on the edge of focus, it feels like a limitation. But you get used to the feeling of having all your photos in focus and after a while, it stops feeling like a limitation and starts feeling like a blessing.

Panasonic is making exciting things for photo enthusiasts and pros alike. My good friend and photographer, Isaac Bailey, shoots with a Panasonic micro four-thirds camera and here’s what he has to say about it:

“I love my Panasonic mirrorless camera. It has opened a new realm of fun in personal photography for me. Using the control I get from my big DSLR with tiny size and weight, I can really go anywhere with this baby and make great shots” -Isaac Bailey Photographer Phoenix

Traveling with a camera is the only thing I know. I have never been able to go anywhere without needing a camera with me, but there is always a battle between high quality and compact size. The micro four-thirds market has opened up a new world of possibilities for compact PLUS quality and Panasonic is leading the charge. Heavy cameras may be a thing of the past in the not too distant future. Hurray for that!

Brad and Jennifer’s Wedding in Phoenix, Arizona

December 19th, 2014 — 2:21pm

 

Jennifer and Brad were married in the Trinity Episcopal Cathedral in Phoenix, Arizona and their reception was held at the Paradise Valley Country Club in Paradise Valley, Arizona.  There were a lot of bride’s maids and groomsmen and all of them were lively and fun.  The wedding was great fun.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the day.

One of the bride’s maids was taking little Polaroid shots during the day.  I thought they were cool, so I made my own, but the bride’s maid can pretend she took this Polaroid too.  I won’t tell anyone.

This shot was taken by my second shooter, Ray who was following the groom and groom’s men around during the day.  I love the composition on this shot.

I love mirrors, moms and that connection of sweet pride.  That has got to be one of the most grand moments in a mother’s life.

Everyone learned how to tie a real bow tie.  A skill all men should have.  Loose the fake bow ties, always go real!

Jennifer, the bride, looked like a million bucks.  The dress was perfect, her hair was done just right… what a beautiful sight for Brad at their first look before the wedding.

I don’t recall what was so funny, but not everyone was amused, which is why love the shot so much.

While you are in a long wedding ceremony, or church even, smart phones with data packages have made anything entertaining.  There were a lot of football fans at this wedding.  In fact, I recall announcements on scores being issued at the reception.

The is one of my favorite shots from a recessional in a long time.

Photography from a wedding in phoenix, arizona by arizona wedding photographer Jared Platt. (14)

The from door on the church was perfect for a photograph and the sun was on its way down, so we had a perfect moment of light (for about 2 minutes), then it was gone.  If you are the tech type, this was taken with a slow shutter speed to burn in a darkening sky.  The couple is in complete ambient darkness and lit by a Profoto B1 off camera flash with a soft box.

Jennifer makes the dress look great!

Photography from a wedding in phoenix, arizona by arizona wedding photographer Jared Platt. (16)

One of my favorite parts of the day is the reception and particularly the toasts.  Most of the time, a toast looks best in black and white.

The other side of the toast!

The bride loved the doors at the Paradise Valley country club.  So we set up a shot at the main entrance.  It was pretty dark out there, but two Profoto B1 lights did the trick.  One was lighting them and the other was filling in a general bounce to give us detail in the shadows.

This next series was a lot of fun.  They had a cigar box for anyone who wanted to have one.  So all the guys gathered on the back patio of the country club, and we shot away.

Clint and Abbey’s Wedding in the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple

November 5th, 2014 — 1:41am

Abbey and Clint were married in the Mesa, Arizona LDS Temple.  We shot some portraits with them the day before the wedding.  I was pleased with the enter shoot.  Here are a few of my favorite images from the wedding portrait shoot and the wedding day itself. Enjoy.

This next image is one of my favorites.  Most of the time you are taking a portraits, but for very brief moments during the shoot, you catch their true personality and expression.  That is what I live for as a photographer… the perfect little moments.  Most of what I do leads up to these little moments in the portrait session.

All of the portraits are lit by Profoto B1 Off Camera Flashes.  The sun you see peaking through the trees is actually a B1 off camera flash.  Looks great!  When the sun isn’t cooperating, make your own sun.

Now this next shot, the sun is actually the sun.  FYI.  But I love this shot. The bride’s mother said it looked like they were in the garden of eden.

This one is all about the dress and the shoes.  I like the like glimpse of the shoes.

Just a little cool drama.  Sometimes I want to do something a little different… I like the drama here in this day for night look.

The details on this wedding are quite fun.  I love the brown paper bag luminaries.  They had great variety of them.

And nothing entertains me more than photographing children at weddings and rehearsal dinners.

On the wedding day, the clouds were threatening rain, but held back until the minute we finished the family portraits and as we started walking back to the temple, the clouds began to unload.  I couldn’t have asked for a better situation.  We got out portraits without incident, but I got a great series of shots as the rain forced the wedding party to run for cover!  Perfect!

The reception was in a local Chandler church building.  But the entire room was draped in white with beautiful white feathers and chandeliers and twinkle lights.  It was very well done.  I played around with various overlapping compositions to describe the room, but I think this shot gives the best description of how the room felt.

During the toasts, one of the groomsmen sat next to the grooms grand-father to translate.  I was drawn to their relationship throughout the reception.  It was touching.  Oh and I also love the light.  All of the light during the reception is provided by two Profoto B1 off camera flashes on either side of the reception room.

A kiss is far more interesting in context.

I love the emotional responses to the toasts at this reception.  There was a lot of love circulating in that room.  I love feeling that kind of love and closeness.

Wedding at the Mesa Arizona Temple by Jared Platt, Platt Photography (20)

During the most emotional groom’s toast I have ever witness, the groom’s grandfather stood up and made his way to the groom’s side to show his support.  I don’t think there are any words to describe now touching this scene really was.  So, I will let the photo do the work.

Oh the anticipation of a wedding cupcake!  She can hardly stand it…
