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.
Once in a while, everything will come together so perfectly for a wedding – the weather, a great vibe, a beautiful bride, an emotional ceremony, a stunning location, friendly guests – we begin to wonder whether it could ever be topped. This awesome wedding was just like that. Lexi and Christian were married in Gig Harbor, Washington, not far from Seattle, in August, a destination wedding at a great house overlooking the sea.
As photographers, we were in our element, with a little cloud cover diffusing the sun for almost perfect lighting. Enjoy this peek at their day.
An awesome, fun trash the dress session with Kristie and Mike on the Parker Strip! We hit the Colorado River south of Lake Havasu on Kristie’s dad’s boat and had a great time until after sunset. As always, this couple wasn’t timid or shy, and the bride wasn’t scared of getting her wedding dress soaked through or perching herself on a perfectly-placed rock against a gorgeous sky! Enjoy these photos… we had a blast making them and the couple will keep them forever.
