Once in awhile I get away and shoot outside of the Phoenix area. I heard about a styled shoot in Sedona at an APPLE ORCHARD and my first thought was, "how could I grow up here and not know there was an APPLE ORCHARD?" Count me in!!! Our host venue was Garlands Oak Creek Lodge. It was nestled between a creek, Sedona red mountains, and the apple orchard. Coordinated by Katrina Amburgey, Jessica and Daniel were our engaged couple for this 2 part shoot. Jessica and Daniel were total naturals. I seriously don't think we had to give them a single direction!! Our evening of shooting went waaay too fast and I can't wait to go back!! Hair and makeup by Pearl Espinoza.
"Are you nervous?", I asked him. "You know that feeling you get right before you know you have to speak?", Logan asked. "Yes", I said with a smile. "It's that same feeling", he said. Knowing that McKenna was just on the other side of the door. In her wedding dress. And he was seconds away from seeing the elegant girl that would soon be his for eternity. But first, a few moments that they could steal away together and soak it all in. And just be. She called his name and when he turned around, he felt she couldn't get to him fast enough. I've known McKenna since she was a year old. And I've had the privilege of watching her conduct herself in a way that prepared her for this day. The day they would become one. Watching Logan tear up during their First Look was one of the sweetest moments and I wouldn't have wanted to be anywhere else. It was paradise. Speaking of paradise, McKenna and Logan are in Hawaii right now soaking up the sun... and love. From their choreographed First Dance, to cake in the face, and being surrounded by friends with a night of dancing, it was nothing short of a grand finale! This was my final wedding of the spring wedding season and I've couldn't have asked for a more incredible couple!

I never intended to post these. After all, I pretty much shoot weddings exclusively. But it would just be unfair to not let the world see beautiful baby Macsen! As a #boymom I am a little biased. At only 7 days old, this was a special request I couldn't say no to!
