Desert Mountain Wedding Photography: Taylor + Sarah

Hi all! I cannot believe it is already Saturday… and we are halfway through June! Where has the time gone??

This blog post is WAY overdue… It’s almost embarrassing how overdue it really is. We moved out of our home a couple of weeks ago and we still don’t have internet access at our new place. Every time I think we finally have it, there is some kind of problem and it still hasn’t been fixed. So here I am, stealing WIFI from Starbucks to get this posted. ;)

I need to start by saying how amazing Taylor and Sarah are… without even meeting us, they chose to book us for their wedding, and when we finally met, they hugged us like they had known us for years… like we were good friends. We have never felt so loved and appreciated as we did by these two. Sarah flashed me a smile about 10 times on her wedding day and said “I am so glad you guys are here.” WOW. What an honor. There is nothing like being and FEELING appreciated for something Andrew and I pour our hearts into every single day.

Taylor and Sarah are absolutely perfect for each other. Their presence calms the other, they mutually respect and support each other, and they smile… oh they smile! They smile so big when they are together that even their eyes are joyful! I’ll stop here and let you get to know them and their beautiful story better through the images below. Enjoy! -EJ

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
