We are Tina Wright and Kevin Juberg, a married wedding and elopement photography team. We do not live in a van or an airstream or a tent or a yurt (just being silly on the last two) and while we have nothing against living on the road, we prefer a home base that can house our large menagerie of fur, feather and scale babies. We call sunny, Phoenix, Arizona home and we share our house with an Old-English Sheepdog named Kiva, a Miligold Macaw named Milford, a 160 pound tortoise named Tank (he plows down everything in his path), a much, much smaller tortoise named Pebbles, a pond turtle who spends over six months of the year on land buried under a bush (he’s a little weird) named Stuart, several frogs and a tank full of fish. That doesn’t stop us from traveling, often with Kiva in tow (Tank stays home), a lot … throughout much of the year.
We love the outdoors and are both more comfortable exploring a remote slot canyon in the desert, hiking through a snow storm in the mountains, coming face-to-face with an extremely anxious bull moose and his cow (yes, that happened), or chasing a giant dust storm in the southwest and supercells and tornadoes across the Great Plains (and yes, we are storm chasers and yes, it is addictive).
Aside from being wedding and elopement photographers, we are also nature photographers and we spend half our time leading nature photography workshops across the western U.S. and are very familiar with many locations in the region, especially Yosemite and the Sierra Nevada Mountains, Death Valley, Big Sur, the San Juan Mountains and Rocky Mountain NP and obviously those areas that are located in Arizona such as Lake Powell, Horseshoe Bend and Antelope Canyon, the Grand Canyon and especially Sedona.
Since 2005 we have been insanely fortunate to make our full-time living photographing beautiful couples and stunning landscapes and the two are often intertwined! With nearly one thousand weddings and elopements under our belt, we have seen a lot. We have walked through a village in West Africa in a procession of hundreds of people to document a stunningly colorful and highly spirited Nigerian wedding; stood in the Vatican in Italy to photograph a couple pledging their vows to one another in one of the most sacred Catholic sights on Earth; dinned on lobster on a beach by the ocean, our feet in the sand and the breeze blowing through our hair, in Anguilla alongside a wonderful couple and their intimate gathering of guests; stood perched on the very edge of the Grand Canyon documenting a couple from China as they spoke their vows through laughter and tears while summer monsoon storms hovered overhead; and spent the entire day hiking across the stark, white salt flats and sinuous sand dunes of Death Valley with a couple from England and watched the childlike wonder on their faces as they experienced a landscape unlike anything they had ever seen before; and the list goes on and on. We get to participate in and document one of the greatest joys in a couples’ life … we are indeed fortunate!
