Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Wedding Photography: Sean + Chelsea

Happy Memorial Day, everyone!

Life has been crazy over here as we have been moving out of our house, downsizing and selling more than half of what we own, finishing out the end of the school year with our kids, and finishing out Arizona wedding season! This blog post is much overdue and I have been so anxious to get it posted… so here we go… on Memorial Day because it seems to be the only slow day around here. ;)

I won’t go on and on about Chelsea and Sean because I know you are really here for the photos, but I do have to say… these two are probably THE MOST joyful couple we have ever had the honor of photographing. They both have the biggest smiles, and when they smile, you can see the depths of their hearts… and their hearts are joyful! They are a match made in heaven and two just incredible people… I don’t know how we get SO lucky to photograph the BEST couples in the world! Andrew did such a great job arranging this blog post in a way that really tells the story of their day through the emotion and the images… so I won’t make you wait any longer to start scrolling!

Chelsea and Sean, thank you for choosing us. Thank you for loving each other and everyone around you so genuinely and deeply. Thank you for being such a great example of two people who choose JOY every day. You are both such a blessing to us, and to everyone who knows you… Congratulations on the best decision you’ve ever made- to be together forever! :) -A&EJ

El Chorro Wedding Photography: Scott + Carly

I should first start this post by shouting from the rooftops “Happy Mother’s Day!” I have wanted to post this blog post all week and it has seemed nearly impossible as we have been so sick over here. And even today I am on the couch with a stomach bug, but I absolutely could not wait any longer for Carly and Scott to see a glimpse of their beautiful wedding day!

Andrew and I have been anticipating this day for over a year as Carly is a brilliant artist (CLEMENTINE STUDIO) and one of the most laid back and REAL people we have ever met. We knew her wedding was going to be unique and become a favorite of ours. When we met Scott at their engagement session several months ago, I don’t know that we have ever laughed so much! We clicked with them instantly, they were on board with our crazy photo ideas, and by the time the sun set that day, we did not want our time with them to end! They are the type of people that others are naturally drawn to- they are content and happy and full of life and adventure. They have fun together and include everyone else in their laughter, they treat each other with kindness and so much respect…we just love them!!

I will let these pictures tell the story of their day better than I could in words, but I do have to say- Andrew and I absolutely loved every moment of the day, every member of their stellar wedding vendor team, every intimate moment and boisterous laugh that we witnessed… but above all- we LOVE the way these two diligently and joyfully love each other. Enjoy! -EJ

El Chorro Wedding Photography: Blake + Brenda

It’s Friday! And we are headed out the door to capture two weddings this weekend, but I could not leave without posting this wedding, so a quick blog post it is today!

Brenda hired us to be her wedding photographers a full 14 months before her wedding, so we have been anticipating this beautiful day for a long time! When I first met with Brenda, I remember thinking that one big word stood out to me about her: Genuine. She was so real about her life plans, and the way she wanted her wedding to go. If you know me at all, you know that authenticity is a BIG value of mine, so Brenda immediately fit perfectly into our “dream bride” category and it was easy to fall in love with her. I was captivated by her smile then and the joy in her eyes, and I could not wait to meet the man that she blushed about! When we finally met Blake, he was everything she described and more!

When the wedding day arrived last week, it was everything Blake and Brenda hoped for! Their desire all along was to create a day focused around their love for each other. They did not want a formal seated dinner and place cards, they didn’t want a wedding cake or to stick to old wedding traditions. They wanted their guests to feel valued and like family all day long. They hoped they would spend most of their time connecting with each other. They truly achieved that desire- It was a wedding full of conversation, laughter, and connection as their guests bounced around from dance floor to patio, to fireplace, to the lounge seating, and to gelato… Everyone felt at home and at peace as they celebrated Blake and Brenda’s beautiful love. It was the PERFECT day and as always, we were SO honored to be chosen to document it all! Keep scrolling to see more… ;) -A&EJ
