Sedona, Arizona, is a picturesque town known for its geysers, hot springs and towering cactus.
Photographer Joe Travaglino captured some of the most beautiful scenery he has ever captured in a wedding photograph.
“There are so many different colors, and there are so few things you can see on a wedding day that you can’t,” Traviglino said.
“The flowers are so beautiful, and the trees are so big.
You don’t have to worry about people coming and looking at your photos and then taking them and then giving them away.
You can just give them to your friend and say, ‘Look, I took this photo, and I love it.'”
Travigino, 50, started photographing weddings as a hobby while working as a photographer in the 1990s.
He said he began to take more pictures of weddings in the mid-2000s, when he was approached by the Sedons to do a wedding.
“I’ve been wanting to do weddings since I was a kid, and then it kind of snowballed from there,” he said.
Travagino said his passion for photography has driven him to take a more personal approach to his photographs.
“People ask me, ‘Why don’t you just take pictures of your family and friends?’
I always tell them, ‘I love it.
I love the people in my life,'” he said, adding that he is a big believer in taking pictures of friends and family that he sees for the first time.
“I think if you’re able to capture people that are so special, it’s a lot easier for them to understand that you care about them.”
He said his aim is to take as many pictures as possible, even if that means not taking pictures that are obvious.
“My goal is to not only be beautiful, but to be able to make people smile and feel happy.
So I think I have to take the picture when I feel happy,” he explained.
Travis Dickey, a photographer based in Salt Lake City, has been taking pictures for almost 30 years.
Dickey said he is known for taking portraits of people that he finds “really unique”, and his photos are often featured on the cover of his magazine, “Miles of Dreams”.
“I think my style is really different from the norm, because I’m trying to capture as many people as possible,” Dickey told Al Jazeera.
“When you see a picture, you can immediately say, what’s the person doing?
What do they do?
What are their interests?
What’s their personality?”‘
Fantastic shots’ and ‘crazy fun’Travigs photos have been published on the web and in magazines, and his photographs are used in various books and films.
“It’s a fantastic time to be a wedding photographer,” he told Aljazeera.
“If you’ve got the right people, and they are happy and excited, and you’re getting the right shots, it’ll be one of the best experiences of your life.”
“I love to photograph people, I love them.
And if they want to get their photo taken, they are going to do it.”
