Jason + Anna Photography // We Are Your Photogs.. » Arizona Based Destination Wedding Photographer Jason and Anna Balll

We are.. Melissa + Clayton

Melissa and Clayton are so deeply in love you can’t help but smile when you see them. They have a million pet names for each other, every sentence begins or ends with “baby”, and when they are together you get a sense they belong together more than any couple you have ever been around. It was for this reason that Anna and I were absolutely excited for their wedding. There is nothing better when two people have a chemistry such as them and you have the privilege of capturing that love; it is the essence of why we love doing what we do. Melissa looked absolutely STUNNING.. there are no other words. They did not disappoint.

Anna and I really can not extend enough gratitude to this group as well. On another level this was the last of 3 weddings we have shot with this group of friends. I touched on it in each of these weddings but I have to say that it was an absolute pleasure getting to know each and every one of them. We truly consider them all friends and we look forward to seeing them grow their families. They all (including all of their friends!) possess incredible hearts and all of those traits you look for in good people… it is a sad moment but an exciting one as well for us.

We hope you enjoy the photos!

It should also be noted that the amazingly talented boys of Shade Tree Films were on board to capture everything on film as well and we are equally excited to see their work. We highly recommend these guys if you are in the business of looking for wedding videography (sorry.. FILM MAKING!). One look at their videos and you will lose an entire day just browsing them infinitely.

And! of course Yasmin of Floral Theory who is honestly THE best florist in the Bay Area. Hands down.

  • Elena - dude, your guys’ photos are better every single time!! it’s like when is it going to just taper off?!!? you guys rule, and this bride is gorge!! ūüôāAugust 3, 2011 – 9:46 pm

  • yasmin {floral theory} - I have to first say that I am humbled by your kind words. Seriously.

    I completely agree with Elena. I’ve written this before, but you two are on this major growth trajectory that seems to be limitless. I’ve worked with you now on more than a few weddings, and I have followed your work since the very first one we did together. There is something very defining going on here – a confidence that exudes from your images – like your voice has been decidedly found. Signature Jason & Anna. I could spot it a mile away now. Probably couldn’t say that a year ago. Proud to know and work with such talent.

  • Terra Penner - These photos are gorgeous! I am also curious as to where a certain bridesmaid dress came from! Any chance you could tell me where the lace one came from? (The first on the left in the pic where they are hanging from the fence.) It is perfect for my friends wedding in May, and I have been trying to track it (and the owners of this photo) down for the last month! If that particular bridesmaid would be willing to part with it, I’d be interested in purchasing it!January 15, 2012 – 1:03 pm
