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

Chandler Wedding Photography: Harold + Allison

Happy Wednesday, friends! Typically EmilyJade writes all of our blog posts but I did not want to wait for her to get into the office tomorrow to post this. So here I am… not a writer by nature, but hoping to bless Harold and Allison with my words as their love story is and their wedding day was nothing short of perfect.

After more than 8 years of capturing the biggest day in our couple’s lives, it still never fails to put a smile on our faces to behold their joy when they see each other for the first time. There’s something so amazing about that moment. I often look over to see my wife wiping tears from her eyes. It’s a powerful moment. For Harold and Allison, it was on the stone bridge, where their wedding day started ‘together’. Before that moment, it was many little moments of getting ready separately and thinking of each other. After that moment, though, it stopped being his day or her day and became ‘their’ day; ‘their’ time together and ‘their’ hands that were holding each other and ‘their’ smiles as together they walked into the next chapter of their lives.

For Harold and Allison, I imagine that their wedding day might have been a big joyful blur. From the moment they woke to the moment they ran through all their loved ones holding sparklers and celebrating, it’s impossible to truly take it ALL in. There was no break between seeing each other on the stone bridge, to enjoying the company of their wedding party, to walking down the aisle, to dancing the night away and finally to leaving in a whirlwind of excited wedding guests. But our true passion is in capturing the story, so that in case our couples missed something, they will see it here. Harold and Allison, here is your wedding day told through our eyes; it was beautiful and precious and endearing and heartfelt and so much more. We feel blessed to know you both… Enjoy! -A

Royal Palms Resort Wedding Photography: Mike + Jessica

As I am sitting down to write out this post, I cannot believe that we are already halfway through our spring wedding season! And 2017 is already 1/4 of the way over! Where has the time gone??

Mike and Jessica’s wedding will always be one of our favorites. First, let me give a shout out to Kayla with Some Like It Classic who is a seriously incredible wedding planner and SUCH a joy to work with! We just love her! Secondly, I have to shout out to Flower Studio who creates the most absolutely breathtaking designs and florals for every single wedding they do. Such talented and humble people! These two are on our list of top favorites in the AZ industry and we feel so lucky to get to work with them as often as we do! Now that I have raved about their vendors, let me rave about Mike and Jessica a little bit…

Mike and Jessica have been together for 11 years… ELEVEN years! They have loved one another and been committed to each other for over 1/3 of their lives already so their wedding day was extra special and much anticipated. Some say that to be together for so long before marriage makes the joy of the wedding day a little less, but Andrew and I believe quite the opposite. And so do all of their loved ones. What a testimony to commitment and friendship! What an inspiring journey these two have been on! They have spent most of their relationship long-distance from each other as they both achieved their masters and doctorate degrees and even landed the careers of their dreams. They have cheered each other on over the phone and in person, they have supported each other, worked hard together, cried together, laughed together, and missed each other. They know that they need each other and each is the other’s calming factor. They have created not just a love story, but an amazing friendship. After such a journey, Andrew and I felt like the wedding day had a level of depth to it that we don’t experience as often- it was as if everyone had a peace in their souls and joy in their eyes that said “YES. IT IS TIME. NOW IS THE TIME.” It was time, and what a JOYOUS celebration it was!

Mike and Jessica, thank you for choosing us and for being two of the most inspiring and hardworking people we have ever met. Your commitment to each other is a blessing to everyone around you, and we are SO lucky to know you. -A&EJ






Scottsdale Resort Wedding Photography: Lloyd + Danielle

We are SO excited to post this blog post as we just LOVE these two! I don’t know that I have ever seen a happier couple or such an amazing group of bridesmaids!

The moment I first walked into Danielle’s bridal suite, I was met with a beaming and confident bride. She excitedly introduced me to all of her bridesmaids and they all smiled and made me feel so at home. I have to admit that I have never met a group of bridesmaids as genuinely warm and inviting as Danielle’s. They were all kind and wild and beautiful… everything a group of girlfriends should be. It was confirmed in me that moment that even though I had only spent a few hours with Danielle before her wedding day arrived, she is one of a kind. After all, the friends you surround yourself with tend to define the kind of person that you are. :)

The emotion we were able to capture between their joyful friends, the romance we captured between Danielle and Lloyd, the traditions, the speeches and love from their parents, and the insane dancing and party at the reception made this wedding one of our absolute favorites! I love that each image tells a story- each image represents two people who were completely made for each other and who are celebrated so happily by their loved ones. All. Night. Long!

Danielle and Lloyd- we are HONORED to have been there to celebrate you on your day. Thank you for being so loving and genuine and absolutely wonderful. Congratulations!! -A&EJ


Hyatt Regency Scottsdale Wedding Photography: Matt + Sondra

It’s Friday!! Which means for most of you… a relaxing weekend is coming! But for those of us in peak wedding season, a BUSY weekend is coming. We can’t complain since our busyness equals joyfulness and photographing two people madly in love… ;)

I am so excited to share this blog post with you today! Not only do we adore the details and the venue and our entire vendor team, but this amazing couple is one of our favorites! Sondra is one of the most genuine, patient, gracious, and truly joyful people we have ever met. I think proof of that lies in the fact that she had EIGHT bridesmaids on her wedding day! It’s evident how loved and adored she is by her friends and everyone around her and that shows just what an amazing and loving person SHE is! She smiles nonstop and her joy is contagious! Matt is her perfect match as he adores the daylights out of her and he gently cares for her. He is such a good man- full of integrity and love. Andrew and I were overjoyed to be there to document these two and to witness the way they love each other.

Every detail on the wedding day was perfect and true represented Matt and Sondra- even down to the teal vintage getaway car that Matt surprised Sondra with! We won’t give too much away as we want you to scroll below, but notice the emotion as you browse through these images… it’s obvious how JOYFUL the wedding day was and what a dream couple these two are!! Enjoy! -A&EJ
