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!!!!
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!
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!
Planning and florals by the lovely and talented Skyla Brooke.
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 ;)
So when I have my own weddings (scheduled through Old Soul Imagery) I tend to spend the majority of my time with the bride. When I get a chance to assist other photographers, its an opportunity to spend most of the day with the groom! Sometimes I feel like sometimes the groom gets the short end of the stick on the wedding day, so when I'm spending time with them I like to make the most of it!! Thanks to Jennie Karges with Jennie Karges Photography, I got to spend a number of hours hanging out with Dave as he got ready to greet Dani on their wedding day. It was such a joy getting to listen to his stories about his future bride, and watch his face light up as he spoke about her. When he finally got to see her for the first time that day, it was sheer bliss. The love these two share just leaps out at you through the photographs! They are so passionate about one another, and they have so much JOY in one another's company! This couple is #goals. Here's to you Dave and Dani!!
I was super privileged to assist Lux Wedding Studio and be present for Stephen and Aubrey tying the knot! They were married at the beautiful Whispering Tree Ranch at the base of the Estrella Mountain range in Phoenix Arizona. These two were super fun and outgoing the whole day! It was a non-stop party from start to finish ;) Just wait until you see her dress!! It is so gorgeous! And her bouquet, stunning. Enjoy a look into their fantastic day!
