John & Noelle's Wedding

John and Noelle are a bit younger than a lot of the other newlyweds I've seen lately, but based on the loving comments throughout the day from friends and family, are very determined and eager to get a jump start on their new life together! We started the day at Assumption Greek Orthodox Church in Scottsdale, Arizona and then headed over to Noelle's parent's amazing home for the reception.

Noelle is every photographer's dream client - so super bubbly and adorable!

The church had windows up in the topmost peak of the roof and the light showed up really bright on the priest's white robe at one point during the ceremony, casting some really amazing light on Noelle's face - of course, I had to take advantage!

Noelle's parents live on a golf course so we had a chance to go out at sunset and get some really awesome shots!

Gianna & Brandon's Wedding

A friend of mine recently got married at Ashley Manor in Chandler, Arizona and I feel so lucky to be able to shoot her wedding! It was a long day, but we got some awesome shots! Here are some of my favorites!

We started the day with the girls getting ready at a nearby hotel and I got this cool shot of the rings on the comforter of the bed.

So sassy!

Lilith was one of the flower girls and she was absolutely adorable! I've never seen a little girl so into bugs - check out the rolly polly in her hand here. She kept bringing them up to show us "her friends" all day.

Gianna and Brandon decided to do a first look and had a chance to get some photos out of the way before the ceremony.

They had a HUGE bridal party! And the two flower girls weren't even in this shot.

They had one of the most messy, but funny cake cuttings I've ever seen!

Thank you both for allowing me to be a part of your special day! To see more photos from this wedding and many others, please visit my website to view my portfolio!

Lauren & Andrew's Wedding

Lauren and Andrew's wedding was at Saguaro Ranch Park in Glendale, AZ. The last time I went to a wedding here, it was my aunt and uncle's wedding and I was about seven. More than just wedding styles have changed since then - this place is a Glendale staple and has come such a long way! There are so many neato places to shoot around the property that I didn't notice even last time I was here to shoot for personal purposes. Cool buildings, colors, doors, and yes...VINEYARDS! Check it out!

Lauren and Andrew met while she was studying abroad. Andrew is from London so, of course, he has the coolest accent! (I'm sure people from London just love that!)

First kiss as man and wife.

Since Andrew's family lives in London, only his mom and brother were able to make it. They were a hoot! This shot still cracks me up.

And now to showcase some of this unique property...I love how relaxed, but still very romantic this shot is!

Last but definitely not least, vineyards!!! If you don't live in Arizona, no it's not just a bunch of dirt and cacti, but we rarely see vineyards so these shots were pretty fun!

Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your special day, Lauren and Andrew! To see more photos from this wedding and many others, check out my wedding portfolio!

Jeff & Lindsay's Wedding

Jeff and Lindsay were married at Boojum Tree Hidden Gardens and I love how they incorporated the tropical feel of the location into all of their wedding day details! Love these flowers and love this shot!

These two are so adorable!

Lindsay's mom gave her a hug just before the ceremony.

Jeff is quite a character...he had his gorgeous bride laughing and crying through the entire ceremony.

The light hitting the back of her veil here is just amazing!
