Our Wanderful Reviews
We love our clients and they seem to love us back! But don’t take our word or it.
For our wedding we decided to go with Wanderlight and selected Nate and got Brooke as it second photographer. And God, They were wonderful, professional and a complete joy to be around on our special day. It was like we had known them for years and they were long lost friends! Brooke as second photographer was always willing to help me with wedding day stuff, set me at ease and show us how to do something (like cake cutting) all the whole snapping pictures and Nate as first photographer had the patience of a saint making sure that we were on time, got everything that we wanted, and gave clear and friendly direction for our photos.
They were both amazing and I just really want to offer my compliments to them both. I could not have imagined anyone else there for our special day. Thank you also to McCory as well who was so responsive to all of our questions leading up the the big day.
We had a ton of fun with our wonderful photographers and got our pictures exactly a month after the day and they are all absolutely GORGEOUS! Wow! My husband and I feel like we really won the jackpot with Wanderlight. A LOT of our other friends and family have had great photographers the day of but difficulty getting pictures as far as a year out! Well with Wanderlight they are the whole package! It's funny to say but I honestly couldn't have imagined my wedding without Nate and Brooke! They were THAT wonderful! Wanderlight was also incredibly well priced compared to others that we looked at and we were able to meet with Nate ahead of time to talk through our timeline and shot preferences, he was wonderful and professional. Honestly I just can't recommend Wanderlight enough. If you're getting married start looking here! You won't regret it!
Here at Wanderlight, we believe that everyone should be able to live freely. We proudly donate a portion of each session to Free The Girls, an organization that aids women rescued from sex trafficking. Together we can help these women regain true freedom in every aspect of life.

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.
