Jeannie and Matt, A Desert Anniversary Session

      Let me introduce you to Jeannie and Matt. They are our neighbors. The kind of neighbors that you can borrow an egg from at 2 am. The kind of neighbors that will make you think twice about ever moving. They are huge advocates of adoption and owners of Elegant Farmhouse Designs. They recently took a break from their farmhouse table rentals for weddings and we headed to the desert for an anniversary shoot!  

Cybill and Tyler

         This California girl ended and started her New Year by marrying her Arizona native small town country boy. All they do is laugh and have fun together. Sometimes it was hard to get a serious picture when they are so full of JOY! The one thing Cybill asked for was to hike to the top of a mountain IN HER WEDDING DRESS to get scenic desert pictures! After they were married in the Phoenix Temple, everyone headed to Wickenburg to celebrate. Cybill and Tyler were a joy to get to know and I know they will have a lifetime of laughter!

Rachel and Steven, A Desert Anniversary Session

        When I originally met with them to talk about their wedding, one of the things Rachel mentioned was an engagement session. There was so much going on for them during that time that it never happened. But she didn't forget. And neither did Steven. So when their First Anniversary came up Steven wanted to give that to her. Enter the anniversary session! Steven surprised her with meeting up to give her that engagement session Rachel never got! In the last year since they got married, Steven is living his dream job and together they have done a lot of traveling! I'm so glad that I have been a part and I will never forget Rachel & Steven! 

Teala and Tyler, A Scottsdale Wedding

         It was a perfect Arizona day. She was relaxed. He was even more relaxed. They made a black tie wedding look effortless, complete with beautiful blooms and an ultimate fireworks finale! Teala's blush and gold palette carried through to the stationary helped her Desert Romance theme complete her vision. As she walked down the aisle her gaze locked with his. No doubt they were remembering the distance and time that they had spent apart because of his career. And now, even if he was on the road, they would always be together. Teala and Tyler, from the bottom of my heart, thank you for letting be a part of your day. May the fireworks at the end of your night be a sign of the spark that will always be there!
