Welcome to the Cactus Photo Company, formerly Dusty Wooddell Photography. My wife and I are a wedding & lifestyle portrait photography team based in the Southwest United States. We've made Parker, AZ our home and are fortunate to be able to photograph amazing clients and their stories all over our part of the country. We are known for our artistic use of off camera lighting, incredible scenery, and capturing our clients in a way that is timeless and organic.
