Sammy and Molly

"Surprise!!" Not something you typically hear a lot at weddings.  Molly and Sammy however, are not a typical couple.  They had a few surprises sprinkled throughout the wedding day to make it just so much fun!!  They started off with reading one another's vows.  So many giggles and tears!  It was precious.  The next surprise was epic.  Molly dressed her nephews like Transformers to walk down the aisle as ring bearers!! Sammy flipped out, it was hilarious!! They were the toast of the town ;) . The last surprise of the day was a super sweet one.  Molly's grandparents have been married for over 50 years, so the anniversary dance ended with them alone on the dance floor dancing to the same song they danced to at their wedding :)  Enjoy!! And special thanks to the amazing vendors who came together to make this day possible.

Sally and Dave

This couple has just the sweetest story ever!! They kind of sort of met in high school.  Didn't keep in touch, moved around, had kids, and just lived life.  They reconnected via a Facebook group for their old high school friends.  They started talking on the phone and low and behold they fell in love!!!! At this time Sally was living in Arizona and Dave was near their home town in Michigan.  They quickly decided this wouldn't do.  So Sally picked herself up and moved back to Michigan to be with Dave!  During their vows they talked about their journey to finding one another.  It was so beautiful I teared up!!!  Sally and Dave, congratulations and I wish you a LIFETIME of joy and hapiness!!!!

Welcoming Scarlett to the family

This is the second time I've been invited by this amazing family into their home to document the welcoming of a child into their home!  Baby Scarlett is so precious, and already bears a striking resemblance to both her parent.  Both brothers just adore her and I can see her being made a fuss of already!! This home is so full of love, joy, and imagination, and I love every minute I get to spend with them.  Thanks for trusting me with your beautiful memories Behrens family! And baby Scarlett, you are so loved, I can't wait to watch you grow up :)  

Shane and Ashly

This wedding was just NON STOP party!!  Shane and Ashly had been through so many years, and so many miles, to make it to their wedding day.  So once their special day FINALLY arrived, they were ready to let loose and CELEBRATE!!! I loved watching everyone just enjoy the day and join in support of this amazing couple!  From the beginning of the day getting ready in their downtown hotel, to their first look at Rio Salado, to their amazing ceremony and reception at Legend City Studios, they were surrounded by love and joy the entire day!  I hope you have as much fun looking through the photos of this LEGENDary (get it...Legend City Studios.......legendary.....lol) wedding as I had taking them. Special thanks to Skyla Brooke for planning and coordinating! And Lumiere Photography for having me join!

Aaron and Tori

Blushes, and blues, and backyards, oh my!!  This wedding was just so well thought out from start to finish.  There were so many little details that put it above and beyond your traditional backyard wedding.  I think my favorite part was the backdrop they set up in the ceremony space.  It was so unique!  Listening to the stories, and watching the faces during this wedding was something special.  Tori and Aaron couldn't stop looking at one another and smiling all day!!  Those looks of love and stolen moments are what I LIVE FOR during weddings.  And this wedding had no shortage.  Thank you so much to Sara Bishop for having me come alongside you for this wedding.  It was an absolute privilege!

Pierce Family

One of the best parts about being a photographer is watching families grow and change over the years.  I've watched this family go from a family of 3 to a family of 4!  I absolutely love getting to spend time with the Pierce family and I look forward to it every year.  Their kids have so much personality!  It is such a privilege getting to be capture the memories of these growing boys while they are still young.  Thank you Pierce family for trusting me with your memories!!

Andre and Ailed

This wedding, this couple, oh man!! There was so much joy and so much emotion.  Thank you to Suzy Goodrick for having me assist on this special day.  I loved how each and every detail of this wedding was a reflection of Andre and Ailed.  There was so much care in every piece of greenery, every candle, and every piece of decoration.  The families came together and created an atmosphere of joy and harmony to promote this union.  I hope you enjoy the photos as much as I enjoyed taking them!!

The Davidson Family

I have to give some serious props to the Davidson family!  First of all, they have two small children.  They trusted me enough to get those two kids (and themselves!!) dressed and out to North Scottsdale before 5am for our shoot!  It was soooo worth it.  The light was blissful, and the weather was nice and cool.  Can we all agree that the desert is absolutely breathtaking at dawn?  There is something magical about the first rays of sunlight peeking out over the palo verde trees.  Davidson family, you are adorable and I would wake up early again in a heartbeat!!  Thank you so much for trusting me with your family's memories!

Julien and Kristi

First of all I want to say THANK YOU to Alexis with A.M.E. Photography for having me join you in capturing Julien and Kristi's wedding day!  Meeting Julien and Kristi (as well as their two adorable children) was just a pleasure from start to finish.  There was so much emotion on their wedding day!  Joy, love, laughter, tears, it was all there.  The ceremony included handing out roses to those people that had poured into their relationship, prayers, a sand ceremony to symbolize the joining of their family of four, and tears during many different parts.  The emotion was very present!!!! And it didn't hurt that this couple is GORGEOUS!! Enjoy ;)
