I’ve actually known Stacy since she was a little girl. That makes me sound older than I actually am, but I was just a young girl myself! I would sometimes tag along with a friend for horseback riding lessons that her mom gave. It’s a different experience photographing a wedding when you know most of the guests! Our good friend Josh was even the officiant! I always like to get comfy with the couples I’m working with and have fun with the guests, but it’s so nice and relaxing being around familiar faces.
This was such a romantic and simple day. The details were delicate. It could’ve been a little too warm but we were blessed with the perfect breeze. The location was at a clubhouse that doesn’t get much use anymore, but it really should! It was the perfect backdrop for Stacy’s style.
I can’t wait to share the rest of the images with Stacy and Cody! John and I both enjoyed ourselves immensely.
I was excited to photograph this wedding just a few minutes into meeting Kristie and Mike for the first time! Their wedding seemed to be the perfect mix of classic elegance meets laid back party on the Colorado River! You might not think that those two could mix, but if you’ve ever visited the river then you know its entirely possible!
The wedding was at the BlueWater Resort and we couldn’t have asked for more perfect weather. The ceremony was held on the island with the river and Mohave Desert as a stunning backdrop. Kristie wore fabulous heels and walked down possibly the longest aisle ever. I couldn’t have walked five feet in them! The arch for the ceremony was made by Mike himself! It’s such a beautiful piece of art.I have to admit I’m a tad jealous of his mad welding skills.
The twinkly dance floor was packed for the entire night. Everyone seemed to have the moves, from the toddlers to the bride and groom’s grandparents.
Kristie and Mike still have a trash the dress session coming up and I have big plans for the both of them! I can’t wait to work with these two again very soon.
Congratulations Kristie and Mike, we had a blast at your wedding!
It’s been a good year. Actually, it’s been a great year. It’s been incredibly busy and stressful at times but so rewarding. I’ve photographed my heart out, traveled all over, met many new people and friends and learned heaps and heaps. I feel very full at the end of this year and am ready to take on 2015. I will literally be starting fast out of the gate (flying to Seattle on Jan. 4th for a week).
Thank you thank you thank you to all my clients, friends and family for being the best ever.
I am loved.
I am supported.
I am ready. C’mon 2015.
Enjoy this little slideshow I put together of some of my favorite photos from this past year. It was so hard not to share everything. I love it all too much! Haha! Keep an eye out for a few selfies, a sneaky shot that John got of me and vice versa. Muah!
I’ll be doing a separate post all about Kyrsten & Jake’s wedding, but I wanted to share this slideshow first! I think I will start offering this from here on out. What do you think?
