You may remember Tim from my brother’s wedding. He was the main photographer there since Scottie was pulling double duty as a photographer/ groomsman and I got the chance to be a full- fledged bridesmaid! So because we love his work enough to choose him for our own family member’s wedding, here Tim pops up again as the main photographer for Vicki & Zach’s wedding!
One thing we love about Tim (other than his mad photography skillz and just his genuine, intriguing, intelligent self ) is his desire to truly help people. You may remember our blog about Abby and the work she does in Africa (especially since it’s right below this one) well, Abby is Tim’s sister-in-law! Tim is saving all the money he makes doing photography to go to Africa with his wife to visit Abby next summer. We’re more than thrilled to help fund Tim’s worth while goal.
When he’s not working with Radiant, Tim is a High School English teacher (this is starting to sound like an add on eharmony or something). Judging by his extraordinarily creative vocabulary (and his chosen profession) I figured he was a good writer, but I was still surprised by just how good he actually is when I read the blog he wrote about Vicki & Zach’s engagement session!
And now, some words from the man himself!!
They say, “Good things come to those who wait.” For Vicki and Zach’s engagement shoot, this couldn’t be more true.
We were originally scheduled to shoot in December, at Tempe Town Lake, but the Iron Man Triathlon foiled the plans – not many people want short-shorted people adorning the background of their engagement photos. We blindly rescheduled for January, a few weeks after the hustle and bustle of the holiday season.
A few weeks before the rescheduled shoot, we realized the PF Change Rock and Roll Marathon was scheduled for the same day! Coincidence? Nay. Frustration? Yeah.
We settled on Scottsdale Civic Center Park – home of the infamous “LOVE” sculpture on a chilly Sunday morning and the day couldn’t have gone better.
Vicki and Zach were such a pleasure to work with. Comfortable in their own right and with one another, they were photogenic to say the least.
We cruised around the park, and with Scottie as our guide, hit some great spots for shooting. Vicki and Zach appeased our creative risk-taking as we placed them on cold metal walls and had them dance around in plain view of passersby.
All in all, it was a great shoot and I am very much looking forward to photographing Vicki and Zach’s wedding in May. Click to see the rest of Vicki and Zach’s Scottsdale Engagement photos.
