I really have grown to love the desert…..I just wish it was a little cooler. ;) Even with the 104 degree temps….this was such a fun wedding to shoot! The bride wanted to make sure their fur babies were involved in their big day, so she rode to the aisle on her horse; and their two doggies made an appearance in the bridal party. The kind of stuff wedding photographers dream of. Plus it never hurts when the couple is wildly attractive and some of the nicest people around. Congrats Mike and Kasey!
When envisioning a gorgeous, end of summer wedding, my guess would be most people would think of something resembling this wedding. Every detail was absolutely perfect, and just when you thought it couldn’t get better….they brought out the donuts…..
This couple had to deal with every bride and groom’s nightmare…..their original photographer had to cancel on them 10 days prior to their wedding. 10 days. As luck would have it, I was scheduled to be in the area the weekend before and was able to extend my trip to capture their big day. I’m so glad it worked out because these two were so great to work with….and not to mention their wedding was drop dead gorgeous….
This lovely Wisconsin wedding took place in a pioneer church, dating back to 1868; and the reception was held at a family farm surrounded by rolling fields and the bride’s uncle’s vintage car collection. Even with the mid-ninety temps and high humidity, this was such a fun wedding to photograph. And it’s worth mentioning, the bride’s cousin hands down gets the award for best dance rendition of “Billie Jean”….we’re talking giving Michael a run for his money. :)
Small, intimate weddings have officially won my heart. This recent Gunflint Trail wedding was no exception. Set at the lovely Poplar Haus, officiated by the brides sister, and with only the couple’s closest family and friends in attendance…there was nothing but love in this couple’s big day. Love and a really beautiful setting….
I was so happy I was able to coordinate with these two for a maternity shoot while I was back in MN! People honestly don’t come any sweeter, and their love and excitement for their little one on the way was so fun to capture. With these two as parents, she’s going to be one blessed babe!
This engagement session was taken right as the monsoons were starting to make their appearance here in northern AZ. I feared we might get rained out but luckily the storms held off and the monsoon conditions created the best light for this session though! We got all the lighting in one session….dark and moody, to light and hazy, and then finally bright and pure magic. There was a price to pay for this light though and it was my makeup melting off my face and onto the back of my camera. :)
It would make sense that it hadn’t rained for 100 days….and then the moisture decided to make an appearance for this lovely couple’s day. Luckily it cleared just in time to still have the gorgeous rooftop reception. And the sky that was left after the rain was pure magic.
These two wanted just a simple celebration, with a ceremony set in the gorgeous pines of Goldwater Lake. It was short, sweet, and oh so beautiful.
These two were so dang fun to work with! They brought their own music (brilliant!) and just had a great time. It made taking their photos so easy, and I love how fun and candid these images turned out!
