Hacienda Del Sol Wedding Photography: Brent + Alli

I love Mondays. Most people dread Mondays, but I view them as the start of something new. A fresh slate. I especially love when I jump into a Monday with so many photos ready to post! It’s going to be a week full of blog posts… and we couldn’t be happier!

Andrew and I LOVE Brent and Alli. Like really, really love! They are two of the funnest (I think that’s a word… or really, it should be) people we have every met. Full of so much life, joy, and excitement in their relationship! Their joy is contagious and we wish we could spend every weekend with them! I asked them to write down a little bit about their love story, and here is Brent’s version for your enjoyment!

“Brent and Alli met in Indianapolis, IN, a place that the both of them never imagined they would ever live
in their lifetime. However, both of their careers coincidentally took them there. Little did Brent
and Alli know, that this most unlikely of places would turn out to be the best move they both had ever
made. Alli and Brent met one night at a mutual friend’s house celebrating Alli’s birthday. When the
party was lacking energy, Brent took it upon himself to become the DJ and bring the level up a bit.
Those who know Brent, understand his good taste in music, but also know his music flaw, his love for
teeny bopper music. His “music flaws” shined bright that night as he kicked things off with a band that
goes by the name of One Direction. Brent’s “Music Flaw” instantly turned into his greatest strength as a
cute petite girl by the name of Alli became very excited by the song choice. This is where their bond
started, and it was instant attraction from that moment on. Within a year, the two were living together
and had their sights set on marriage…”

Desert Botanical Garden Engagement Photography: Bobby + Makenna

It’s so beautiful in Arizona right now! Which can only mean one thing… lots of weddings and lots of engagement sessions! We were so excited when Bobby and Makenna chose the Desert Botanical Gardens for their engagement session… there are so many stunning areas to shoot that really capture the rugged beauty of the Arizona desert.

We cannot wait for these two to tie the knot this coming spring at Paradise Valley Country Club with Imoni Events! -A&EJ


Omni Montelucia Resort Wedding Photography: Sam + Bethany

Happy Tuesday!!

I am SO excited to be sitting down and writing this blog post today. When Andrew told me that he finished editing the blog images and was ready for me to write, I sat down expecting to see the same work we typically produce (which WE think is good in the most humble way), but I was BLOWN away by this wedding! I don’t think it has anything to do with us or our talent… I was MOVED deeply by the emotion in this blog post, the evident connection between the people in these images… the way their wedding photos are filled with SO much story. Yes, we were able to document the story, but THEY lived out their story throughout their wedding day. There are years of memories and love in their eyes… and the joy in their smiles speaks so deeply of their character and the fact that their families were built on firm foundations. I hope I am making sense… what I am most trying to say is that my soul is moved by these images… and I am inspired today by these two and how real their commitment and love is to each other. As you keep scrolling, I hope you are moved and inspired too…

Sam + Bethany: Thank you for choosing us. Thank you for loving each other so deeply. Thank you for the way you smile and inspire others to live fully and joyfully. We are so thankful to know you both. -A&EJ

El Chorro Wedding Photography: Melvin + Nicole

Happy Friday!! We are more than halfway through our fall wedding season and we can hardly believe it! This year has flown by and it just keeping flying… Christmas will be here before we know it!

Andrew and I absolutely LOVED Melvin and Nicole’s wedding day! We loved the connection that we had built with them, we loved watching their nerves turn to excitement as the day progressed, and we LOVED all of their friends and family! It was the most beautiful day! Before you scroll down, here is a little glimpse into their love story from Nicole:

“Melvin and I met through mutual friends at a house party in Mesa when we were both freshmen in college. Back then, I could see Melvin’s huge afro from afar. I remember glancing over at him and thinking, Oh, wow, he has the cutest smile! Eventually we started talking and I realized his outgoing personality matched his handsome looks. Within a month of knowing one another, we officially started dating. We celebrated seven anniversaries as a couple before Melvin got down on one knee in Aruba. On 6-16-16, he totally surprised me by asking if I would make him “the happiest man on this happy island”. My first reaction was, “Is this real life?!” On October 21st, I finally married my best friend. What I love most about Melvin is his heart of gold. He always makes me feel loved and special. He treats me with respect and kindness, and he never forgets how important the little things are. I cannot wait to spend forever with my true love!”
