Troon North Scottsdale Arizona Wedding

Scottsdale Arizona Wedding Photographer

DTP Grooms

  As the mom to a son, this Arizona Wedding Photographer has a special place in her heart for the groom, the groomsmen and their dads.  I had the honor of photographing portions of  Sarah and Sean’s wedding at  Troon North Golf Club.     This groom, Sean, is a thoughtful, kind and all around great guy.  Guys are usually pretty easy going but don’t mistake that as a lack of enthusiasm towards their people and details on their wedding day.



Our groom chose a Classic three piece suit in what I would describe as a Cathedral Grey.  This suit is both Versatile and Timeless.  It is reminiscent of the stately cathedrals built of stone many years years ago.   The groom’s fathers presented themselves as Classic gentlemen in their own versions of the three piece suit as well.  Each gentleman chose their own specific tie and pocket square.  The details they chose were the perfect addition to an already Classic and Timeless Ceremony.



Sean chose  Cole Haan Winston Tan Cap Toe Derby shoes as one of his wedding day details.  He did a great job of ensuring he maintained his Classic style. Who wouldn’t want to be comfortable for their walk down the aisle and your first dance?   Sean’s fragrance choice was Chanel Allure Homme Sport.

His choice made this Arizona Wedding Photographer’s heart so very happy!  I am a sucker for a groom that cares about details just as much as his bride does!


Guys wanna have fun too!


“Mine’s Bond – James Bond.”  What can I say about these guys except that they have each other’s backs, for instance.  Sean’s groomsmen and officiant were fun, considerate and all in when they were asked to show us some “fun” in their one-on-one photos with Sean.  James Bond came with the swagger,  the officiant brought his little brother hugs game and we saw the classic 80’s cheesy pose.


I’d love the opportunity to be your Arizona Wedding Photographer. Meet Donna  Have a look at my work on my website Donna Thompson Photography.
