Bridal Beauty Tip # 17 What The Groom Wears

I recently had the honor of being part of the team shooting one of the covers for the 15th Anniversary issue of Phoenix Bride And Groom Magazine.


For those of you not living in Arizona, this is a gorgeous, glossy magazine full of fabulous ideas and resources, not just for local brides and brides coming to beautiful, sunny Arizona for a destination wedding, but for brides anywhere in the world.
You can see a digital version of the magazine here:
Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine online 
I also write and shoot bridal beauty based stories for their blog

The story that I shot with them for the 15th Anniversary Issue
was all about what the groom wears. Rather than the traditional black tuxedo, the magazine paired up with designer Ted Baker and explored some fashion forward options for the guys in the wedding party.




The story was shot at one of our stunning wedding venues in north Scottsdale, Sassi

A few months ago my dear friend 

Italian model Roberto Cardella

flew in to town to shoot with us for four days.

One of the editorials we shot was for  

Phoenix Bride and Groom Magazine

for a story all about Grooms’ fashion options.

There’s always so much focus on the dress – 

it was great fun to shoot a groom’s story!

On set we couldn’t decide if Roberto looked more like

Humphrey Bogart or James Bond.

What do you think?

He’s based out of L.A for the next while, 

so the American audience will have time to figure it out.

Hopefully we can get him back out here 

to shoot more editorials soon!
