So much to say about this lovely couple! John and I first met Melissa at the bridal show in Phoenix. In all that craziness there are always a few brides that stand out and Melissa was one of them. We got along with her as if we had been old friends, especially when she teased John about his math skills! Their wedding was on February 29th (leap day) and some of us (ahem) had a bit of a hard time figuring out when the next date would be.
There was so much positive emotion throughout the wedding and I walked around with a silly grin on my face all day, I’m sure. It my also have been because Melissa surprised Logan during the ceremony with Stormtrooper groomsmen! That was such a hard secret to keep in, but it was so worth it and instantly became one of my favorite wedding moments.
Melissa and Logan first met when working at Make a Wish Foundation. He worked in the IT department and met Melissa when she was having printer issues. Funny enough, those printer issues were not immediately fixed, and Logan kept having to come back to “check up” on that darned printer. The ploy was a risky one since it made Melissa wonder if he was competent in his IT skills, but he managed to ask her on a date and sweep her off her feet.
Someday soon I believe we’ll be working with Melissa and Logan on another portrait session that I’m very excited about! Let’s just say that these two love Disneyland more than the average couple…
This wedding was the best party I’ve been to in a long time! I had the pleasure of photographing this wedding just down the street from my home. The strip of Colorado River I call home is known for its beauty, water recreation and parties. This was a fun group from the very start as you can tell.
It wasn’t far from this location that James proposed to Sarah. They’ve been vacationing here for years so it was fitting they start their marriage here. We couldn’t have asked for a better day, a better sunset.
We were so excited when we arrived to the venue for Ashley & Cameron’s wedding! Within minutes of walking in the door, the kids were asking us if we had see the secret rooms yet! It was all hidden doors and passageways. It was hard to believe the Chateau de Vie is nestled right in Chandler, Arizona!
Ashley was such a beautiful bride and I wanted to take a portrait of her in every single room of the venue. The bridal party and family were such troopers when it came to portraits since it was quite the humid day! With a beautiful venue like this though, taking photos inside was easy.
I just realized I never shared the full slideshow that I put together of the CRIT Native American Days Fair Expo! This will give you an idea of all the events over those four days as well as a glimpse into Native American culture in my area. This was such a great experience and honor to be a part of this. Make sure you watch it in HD. Enjoy!
