We are very familiar with the challenges associated with destination weddings including limited resources and the ever-changing light and weather. While conditions may change the time and location of your ceremony, we are always flexible, reserving the entire day just for you. Whether you book a two-hour package or full day, we are happy to accommodate changes and happily offer suggestions for alternative locations.
Affordability is important to all wedding budgeting and as such we offer a wide variety of options to best fit your personal wants and needs. Please see our Packages page for more detailed information. Our fees are location specific based on accessibility, available lodging and our time commitment. In addition to our photography services, we are non-denominational officiants and have also been providing professional event planning services in the area for over 25 years. For more information please visit our Monumental Arizona Weddings website.
Please feel free to reach out to us anytime should you have any questions, we are happy to share our knowledge and expertise. Experience tells us when planning a destination wedding; one phone call or Skype can do what 100 emails cannot. 480-980-8121
Debra has always had a passion for three things: helping people in transition, creating unforgettable events and detailing the beauty of life through a camera lens. Interestingly, all these qualities led her on the path to the concept and creation of Monumental Arizona Weddings & Events.
From a very young age she grew up under the tutelage of her father, a famed photographer for the Chicago Sun Times. It was here that she acquired her skill and finesse in capturing perfect photo opportunities. This ability combined with her love of the outdoor natural world gave birth to Dreamcatcher Wedding Photography.
In addition, she spent her early career in Event Planning and Catering Coordination. She was successful in overseeing everything from very large high-profile events to smaller more intimate venues. As a result, Debra can keep a cool head and address the myriad of details for our couples’ special day.
Years ago, Debra felt a calling to be ordained as a Chaplain, so she could be at the bedside of sick and dying patients. With a natural love and ability in this area, she has worked with many people as they transitioned from this world. She also had a desire to work with people in other precious moments and today is happily ministering to hundreds of couples as they commit to one another in the most magnificent surroundings.
Mark, born and raised in Southern England has from a young age had a deep connection to the natural world that surrounded him. The Neolithic landscape of his native county of Wiltshire inspired Mark to explore various forms of artistic expression and in doing so he discovered his passion for photography. This was in his early teens, when film was the norm and darkroom processing played an important role in his education of the image. Having been an active photographer throughout the evolution of camera technology he now embraces the world of digital photography and processing to create visually stunning images for our couples on their special day.
Not only a gifted artist, Mark is also a Master in the healing art of Reiki which, along with his meditation practice has increased his connection and understanding of the world around him. After many years as an ordained Spiritual Humanist minister he regularly performs wedding ceremonies within the ancient monument of Stonehenge in England.
As co-owner of Monumental Arizona Weddings and Events, Mark is blessed to be able to use his passion and varied skill set to help facilitate our couple’s unique wedding day experience.
Dream Catcher Wedding Photography is the culmination of years of experience and a passion for wedding photography in some of the worlds most beautiful locations. Our goal is to capture the essence of the event, the heart stopping beauty that surrounds you on your wedding day and the feeling of standing within one of earths most sacred landscapes sharing the first of many intimate moments in the lives of our beautiful couples.
The joy of creating the candid images which truly reflects the emotions and feelings of the moment is the gift which continually inspires us to capture dreams in the making. We like to have fun with the light hearted and informal atmosphere of photo-journaling and we strive to provide a relaxed comfortable environment for the more formal wedding portraits.
