I’ve been lucky to have multiple backyard weddings this year that have proven you don’t necessarily need a big, fancy venue to have a beautiful day. This was definitely the case for this wedding….it was low key, simple, and oh so lovely. Doesn’t hurt that the bride and groom were a ridiculously striking couple too. :)
Fall colors…woods…a lovely couple….my favorite mix for an engagement session! Can’t wait to shoot their wedding next year!
When Jess first described to me the plans for her simple, boho backyard wedding, my first thought naturally was….are we the same person? Turns out we’re not, but man do we have similar taste. This gorgeous wedding goes to show that you’d don’t need anything extravagant to make for a beautiful day. The wedding was small, flawless and so filled with love. Definitely one of my favorites to date.
It didn’t take more than the bride telling me her wedding was going to have a french-country chic vibe and I was sold. These two were so lovely to work with and the Van Dickson Ranch provided such a beautiful backdrop for their special day.
As this pair had planned just a small civil ceremony in Phoenix, when they were up here elk hunting, they wanted to do an “engagement” type shoot. Any couple that can go hunting together and still decide to get married….I’m impressed. :) These two were such a blast to work with and I couldn’t be happier for them!
I’d been looking forward to shooting this wedding since meeting this adorable couple at their engagement session this spring. Needless to say, it didn’t disappoint! It was a gorgeous rooftop ceremony at the historic Hassayampa hotel; and the weather cooperated just enough. It poured 30 minutes after the ceremony…..we got lucky. :)
I swear this wedding was designed with a photographer in mind. There were so many sentimental details and personal touches. From the hand-me-down pearls, the wedding dress worn by both the bride’s mother and grandmother, the wedding arch the couple made out of horse shoes (both are farriers), and the buckskin dress with beads passed down the generations. Everything had a story….and so much love.
First and foremost, I gotta say how much I love this venue. Trees…gorgeous shade….water…features that aren’t easy to find with an Arizona wedding venue. Then there was this couple. Amazing to work with and so much love between them. They put their wedding on the back burner for 10 years….but it was definitely worth the wait.
With weddings it’s rare for everything to go according to plan, the weather to cooperate, and everything to be on time. This wedding was definitely one of those lucky ones, and it all came together beautifully for this lovely couple!
These two were such an adorable couple to work with! They were up for anything and put up with all my crazy requests….including going on a little hike when she had some serious heels on. I can’t wait for their late summer wedding!
