Our Wanderful Reviews

We love our clients and they seem to love us back! But don’t take our word or it.

Sam did an incredible job. She was so fun, easy to be around and brought an air of professionalism and calm to a busy day. We were thrilled with our photos! Can't recommend her enough.

This company gave us exactly the wedding photoset we were looking for. The photographer we chose from their stable of artists, Sam, not only took gorgeous photos for us, but was super friendly, helpful, and detailed when it came to giving direction. She took great advantage of the photo opportunity spots we chose around the grounds, and her photos would never have you thinking that a major roadway is only 20 feet away.My husband and I are incredibly happy with our wedding photos, and I would absolutely recommend this company (and Sam specifically) for a wedding photographer.

Hannah was our photographer and I can't say enough good things. First off we got along so well and she is the sweetest human. Second, she truly knows what she is doing and directed us every step of the way. We have only received our preview photos so far and they are better than I could've ever imagined. She was in the middle of the dance floor snapping photos, on a chair getting the good shot. SIMPLY AMAZING! Highly recommend Hannah for your wedding.

Sam is the absolute best!! She was super helpful throughout the entire process. We had a few calls with her before the day to get an idea of our style. Once the day had arrived, she was somehow everywhere catching photos of all of our guests and us and every picture was people laughing or smiling which is just exactly what we had in mind. Not only is she a great photographer but such a sweet and kind person to have around. She captured our wedding day perfectly and we’d recommend her to anyone!!

Nate and the Wanderlight team were incredible. He captured truly wonderful pictures of the wedding and worked with my husband and I to make sure we got what we were looking for.
Brittany and Nate were wonderful! Brittany was our main photographer and was a perfect fit for us. She was extremely personable and worked efficiently to get all the photos we wanted + more. Nate was our second photographer and he did an awesome job getting photos of all our friends and family during cocktail hour! They went above and beyond to help keep on schedule without rushing or missing anything! Would highly recommend this company!

Wanderlight was absolutely wonderful for our wedding day. The entire process was very stress-free and you can tell they really care about capturing the most important moments! Brittany was fantastic from the start, she was extremely professional and did an outstanding job. We got so many compliments on our pictures and could not be happier with how they turned out!

Had a great experience with Wanderlight- we were definitely awkward about having our pictures taken and being in front of the camera, but Emily was awesome at making us feel comfortable and laugh! The pictures turned out amazing and we couldn't be happier!

I can't recommend Wanderlight enough for wedding photography. Their website is designed so well, that we were able to review all the photographers and get a quote on our own. James the owner was super quick to respond with answers for all of our questions.We had Nate as our photographer, he was really amazing and very easy to work with. We had a lot of outdoor shots we really wanted to get and he did an amazing job of making sure we hit all the spots we wanted to. He did a great job of capturing the ceremony and reception. We loved almost all the photos he took, it's been really hard to decide which ones to print out.10 out of 10, I would choose Wanderlight again.

The Best Phoenix Wedding Photographers

Wanderlight Weddings was created to make finding the best Phoenix wedding photographer easy for couples. Whether you are getting married in downtown Phoenix, among the red rocks or in the deserts, Wanderlight Weddings always ensures that you have the perfect Phoenix wedding photographer.  We give you a chance to get to know our Phoenix photographers with videos and in-depth portfolios.  You can then book the photographer with our simple four-step process for booking a Phoenix wedding photographer. All you need to do is enter your wedding date, select your photographer after viewing their bio video and viewing their portfolio, select your package from three to nine hours, enter in your wedding details and pay via credit card and you will be all set. Your selected photographer will reach out to you within three days to set up an appointment to get to know you better and hear all about the amazing day you are going to have.

Wanderlight was started by McCory James, who has been a photographer and owner of Elevate Photography in Denver, Colorado.  Elevate is a staple in the Colorado photography community and we used the nearly 20 years of experience we gained through Elevate to create Wanderlight Wedding Photography. Because we have a vast network of photographers, we offer Wanderlight clients experienced professionals who know how to get the best wedding photos at venues across Phoenix and the west. Our photographers have shot at a variety of Phoenix area locations, including venues like The Paseo, Villa Siena, Shenandoah Mill, Villa Tuscana, Schnepf Farms, Gather Estate, Grayhawk Golf Club and Superstition Springs Golf Club, Superstition Manor, Saguaro Lake Guest Ranch. We also photograph within Phoenix at venues like The Desert Botanical Gardens, Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens, The Croft Downtown, Raven Golf Club, and the Warehouse 215 @ Bentley Projects.  We have also partnered with some great Phoenix wedding planners like KDP Events and Bountyful Creations.

You received the benefits of a team of Phoenix wedding photographers.  Our team approach allows us to feed off each other’s creativity and we are constantly sharing ideas that keep all of our Phoenix photographers on the cutting edge of wedding photography. Our photographers will share location ideas and their experiences so that each wedding photographer is able to do their best work.  One photographer may find a great spot with a great backdrop of cacti near a venue or a downtown alley that makes a great backdrop and then they share that with the Phoenix photography team and we are able to take our next couple there and get amazing Arizona wedding photos.  Our team of photographers also means that we always have a group of photographers we can rely on when unforeseen circumstances happen. We want to make sure that you have peace of mind that we will always have a quality photographer at your wedding and that we will always do our best to provide the highest quality photographs possible.

We are excited to be able to bring our services to the desert and offer high-quality wedding photographers in Phoenix.   We also pride ourselves on having consistent editing and processes so we provide the highest quality photography to our clients every time. Also, our commitment to high-quality customer service and experienced staff mean that we will always be reliable through the photography process. Being a trusted advisor is very important to us and we will help you every step of the way as you need it in planning. We have also built our wedding photography as a la carte options so you can building the photography package that gives you exactly what you are looking for and nothing more or lesss. In addition to the lead wedding photographer’s time, we offer a second photographer, engagement photos and you can add as much time as you need a la carte.

Our easy online ordering service lets you order prints, albums or a gorgeous canvas after your Phoenix wedding. We love to see the photos being used and products and prints also make great gifts for family and friends who helped make your day perfect.
