El Chorro Wedding Photography: David + Ally

Happy December, friends!
We cannot believe that our fall wedding season has already come and gone! This year has flown by so incredibly fast and spring just around the corner!

We knew when we first met with David and Ally that their wedding would be the PERFECT close to our year. Not only was their wedding breathtaking and so unique, but they are two are the most amazing people we have ever met. They are kind, compassionate, loving, joyful, patient, understanding… the list goes on and on! We feel SO lucky to know them and to have documented such an amazing day in their lives… we still play it all over and over again in our minds! Just for fun, here is little about their engagement story written by Ally, OH and don’t forget to scroll to the bottom to check out the amazing wedding professionals who made David + Ally’s day run flawlessly!

“After morning Mass at St. Thomas the Apostle with David and my family…my Sunday started out to be just like any other. Usually we have brunch after mass, but David played it off like he was busy after Mass and offered to take me to dinner that night instead. Of course it was fine with me.

We went to dinner at Hillstone and it was lovely. He asked if I wanted to grab drinks at the Biltmore after dinner and I readily agreed. We hopped in the car and started heading towards his house. Until I said, “David, aren’t we going to the Biltmore for drinks?” He said “oops, I forgot.” He turned around and we headed to the resort.

We wandered around the Biltmore and he informs me he got a room for the night. I was surprised! Still not expecting a thing. He leads me to our room and inside our dog Paddie is there to greet us. I give Paddie my typical hugs, and noticed that attached to his neck is a black straw ring…

The first night David and I met, he proposed to me with a ring that he made out of a black straw. That night I remember thinking this is either fate or madness…now I know…

As soon as I spotted the ring, David was down on one knee proposing with a real ring. Of course I said yes!!!

After champagne, tears, and before making any calls…we made our way to the bar for a celebratory drink. To my surprise, David planned to have my whole family there to greet us along with his sister too, waiting to congratulate us. It was magical. Fireworks went off over the Biltmore as we walked back to our room with our whole crew to keep the celebration going. It was a very special evening!”

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…”

It’s so beautiful in Arizona right now! Which can only mean one thing… lots of weddings and lots of engagement sessions!

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
