This wedding marked the end of my 2018 wedding season….and what a lovely finish it was. The ceremony took place at a gorgeous historic cathedral in downtown Tucson and the reception was held at the nearby JW Marriott Starr Pass, with the most stunning desert backdrop. At the risk of betraying my northern roots….there’s nothing quite like that soft desert light. ❤
This wedding finished out the lovely Van Dickson Ranch’s wedding season; and what a beautiful wedding to end on. The weather was perfect, the couple was the absolute sweetest, and every detail was gorgeous.
A person would be hard-pressed to find two nicer people than these two. They were a dream to work with, and don’t even get me started on their adorable daughter. I normally like to do detail shots alone, so I can really focus; but when their sweet little girl asked to tag along I couldn’t say no. And she actually ended up being quite the little helper. Made for a really fun wedding to photograph.
If you were to ask me to dream up a wedding to photograph, it would probably look something like this. I met this lovely couple for an engagement session in AZ, and they told me about their wedding the following year taking place cliff-side in California. I remember thinking how lucky their photographer was gonna be; and then a few months later they asked if I’d be willing to travel. Needless to say they didn’t have to twist my arm. The stunning cliffs of Big Sur, CA provided the perfect setting for this gorgeous wedding….from the beautiful resort, to the flowers, to the accessories, not a detail was overlooked. If anyone else wants to have a cliff-side wedding, please sign me up.
Fall can’t be beat in Northern Minnesota. But I will admit it’s tricky to time, as every year is different. This couple couldn’t have been luckier with the timing. The leaves were at peak, and it hadn’t turned too cold yet. Well, I guess that point could be argued. It was 36 degrees….but I wasn’t the one in a sleeveless gown. :) I had so much fun capturing their stunning day.
When you get the chance to do a bridal shoot with a gorgeous horse involved, you don’t hesitate. How Kasey rode in that dress is beyond me….but I’m so glad she did!
This beautiful autumn wedding was definitely planned with their guests in mind. From the lovely venue, to having the delicious Rosa’s Italian restaurant cater the buffet, to having a donut bar in lieu of a cake…..I definitely wasn’t complaining. It was such an enjoyable wedding to shoot!
There couldn’t have been a prettier day for this adorable couple’s wedding. Set at the lovely American Ranch, every detail was picture perfect; making it such a fun wedding to capture. And that gown…..it doesn’t get better!
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…..
