Ingrid and Scott were married this past weekend at the Riordan Mansion in Flagstaff, Arizona.  The Riordan Mansion is a historic state park near the NAU campus.  The rustic venue features gorgeous stone arches, log buildings, and amazing trees surrounding the mansion.  The ceremony took place in the Veranda, the front yard of the mansion with a entry gate and beautiful garden.

Ingrid & Scott met online and quickly hit it off.  Ingrid lived in Flagstaff and Scott in Utah, so Scott drove down to Flagstaff for their first date.  After that, it was history.  They knew they had met the person they wanted to spend the rest of their lives with.  They spent their time traveling between Cedar City and Flagstaff to see each other.  Ingrid & Scott would adventure around their cities together cracking jokes to make each other smile as much as possible.

Dan and Julie planned an intimate wedding with just their closest family members.  Knowing the importance of their wedding, they knew they wanted to have the day documented.  They decided to have a bridal session at the Hassayumpa Inn in Paradise Valley followed by a reception dinner with their family.

Rachael & Alec’s wedding at the Rio Salado Audubon was absolutely amazing!  These two met their first year of college at ASU.  (So of course we did their engagement session in Tempe.  See it here!)  They started hanging out together with a small group of friends and quickly realized they especially loved spending time together.  They officially started dating after their freshman year and have been inseparable since.

You guys!  I did it!  I put together my first styled shoot!  It was so much fun but also a ton of work.  It was one of  my goals for 2017 and I am so thankful that I was able to do this shoot just before Christmas!  I definitely learned a lot and am so much more excited to do another one in the future.  You may be scratching your head wondering what a styled shoot is.  A styled shoot is when wedding vendors get together and put on a ‘fake’ wedding to photograph.  It can be as simple as just having a bride and groom or have a full ceremony area, reception table, and bridal party!

Lindsay and Eric had spent many date nights at The Newton since it opened.  The Newton was so happy to have their wedding there!  They even had the cutest chalk signs done for them in the bookstore!

We did their first look in a private alley way behind the venue.  We had such a great time exploring around the venue and inside of the bookstore for their portraits.  These two love craft beers, so we also had to grab them a drink at the bar during their portraits!

After the bridal party pictures and family pictures, it was time for the ceremony!  Their ceremony was short and sweet.  The highlight of the ceremony was their vows.  During Lindsay’s vows, she said something about her being the funny one in their relationship.  During Eric’s vows, he mentioned that Lindsay said something about being the funny one!  How could he know?!  The room was full of amazement and laughter.  After a ring exchange and a kiss, they were finally husband and wife!

Dolores and Mike were married in Dolores’s cousin’s backyard in Glendale.  Dolores and Mike met years ago while working together.  Mike was originally Dolores’s supervisor, so they were just friends.  When she moved teams, they were free to start dating, and so they did!  A few years into their relationship, Mike proposed to Dolores after coming home early from a trip to surprise her.  During their long engagement (8 years), they both moved to the company I work for together, and that is how I met them!  I worked closely with both of them at different times in my career, so when I found out they were setting a wedding date, I knew I had to be their photographer.

Sheryl and Socorro got married in Socorro’s Uncle’s beautiful backyard in Mesa.  These two are some of the most in love people I have met.  Which is quite funny, because when they first met, Socorro wasn’t too sure about Sheryl.  But after time, their friendship blossomed into a wonderful relationship.  Now they enjoy spending all of their time together and taking day trips to Northern Arizona.

Kaela & Mike got married at the amazing Farmhouse at Schnepf Farms in Queen Creek, Arizona.  Kaela & Mike are high school sweethearts.  Mike was the teachers assistant in Kaela’s theater class.  She was a freshman and he was a senior.  They have been inseparable ever since and celebrated their 11th anniversary just before their wedding!

Kaela & Mike love spending time together going to the movies and finding new places to eat out at.  They also go to Comic-Con every year!  (Kaela had three outfits for the last Comic-Con, and they were all amazing!)  When they are not having weekly game night with their friends, they are spending time with their two cats and polish dwarf rabbit!
