Fun Post Wedding Pics at an Antique Store in Phoenix, Arizona

So Mr and Mrs Stapleton loved their wedding photos so much they invited me back for a post wedding shoot with a difference. We decided to shoot in an antique store in the Melrose District of Phoenix, Arizona. I have this fascination with antique stores and this one in particular has always caught my eye. 'Rust and Roses' is based on 7th ave between Indian School and Camelback and is an amazing collection of fine antiques at a great price. I approached the owners who were a little surprised but happy to let us take photos in their tightly packed store. 

We had a blast and here is a tiny selection from a very productive afternoon,

Maternity Photo Shoot with a twist...

So a friend of mine approached me some time back and asked me to shoot some maternity photos, I was pretty excited as it wasnt my usual genre. After some research I discovered Kevin Beasley's underwater maternity images and was blown away. I showed my now very pregnant friend the images and she was more excited than me, if that was possible! As a certified dive instructor it was a no brainer and we soon organized to meet in a heated pool in February and do the shoot. Trusting my camera to a new waterproof housing was daunting but it worked out great. Please check out the maternity section of my site for more photos from this shoot.
