Photography is Our Passion

When I saw my wife for the first time in her wedding dress I cried, and when I said those two little words “I do” I had just married the love of my life! I will forever cherish those moments and our photos from that day. We know how important your wedding day is love providing you with priceless photos for you to cherish together for years to come.

We take pride in providing quality photography services at every stage of your life, let us help you with all the important ones. We are a full service photography company, count on us for your engagement announcements, capturing your wedding, updating your corporate headshot or family albums.

From developing film in the dark room as a teenager to attending the Academy of Art University in college, photography has always been in our blood. Blue Boat Photography came from a song we would sing to our son at bath time, and when it came time to choose our name nothing felt more right.

At Blue Boat Photography we love helping people capture life’s most precious moments. Let us help capture all of them, from announcing your engagement, saying your I do’s, welcoming a new baby, celebrating a birthday, graduating high school or just updating your family album, we would love to help!

“You have touched our hearts with these photos! I couldn’t be any happier with how well they have turned out! They brought tears to my eyes!…I can’t thank you enough for capturing these moments! From birth to one year, we will forever use Blue Boat Photography!” -Dani

Meet James

I’ve always been a little hopeful, excited for what’s coming next. Aren’t you?

Hi, I’m James!  I’m an Arizona native always looking for a shady parking spot! Born in Mesa, I have lived all over the valley. My dad owned a tire shop when I was young so the smell of new tires will still usually make me feel 4 years old again. Our family moved to the white mountains when I was in Highschool and I found myself falling in love with the forest, nature and black and white film photography, which is were my journey began.

Some people call me a photographer, some people call me Maurice, my wife calls me lucky (haha) and my favorite people on the planet call me dad! I’m a father to three amazing little men, a husband to an amazing woman and a friend to most. I love the rain and a warm blanket like nobody’s business, and am so thankful my wife convinced me to get the king size bed every time the kids think it’s grand central station. I once kissed a truck for 29 hours to beat out 7 other competitors in a “Kiss a truck contest,” so I might be a little unwilling to quit. When all is said and done I’m a normal guy, I just take pictures for a living, or as I like to say, “I just push a button.”

Thank you so much for taking an interest in our work. We look forward to chatting with you about your big day!
