Sam and Ben have been so fun to work with from the first time I met them!
When we first met for their engagement session in Sedona you could tell these two adored each other! I will never forget watching Ben take Sam’s hand to help her across the first creek we went to together (which luckily none of us fell in despite the massive gaps between rocks in the creek).
That first session was magic, but this one meant a little more.
These two are now legally married, and will be having their big wedding celebration in October of this year! If you know me at all, you know I am HUGE on documenting every moment and I would say this was one of the bigger ones!
So, just to paint a picture here is how our day went:
It was 40 degrees, cloudy, and incredibly muddy in the creek! These two hopped a fence with me, and got right to documenting their current passage of their love story.
Take a look at these sweet moments I was lucky enough
to capture. I cannot wait for their second big day!
2016 has been a year of growth to say the least!
Though every couple has their own unique love story, I am incredibly blessed to be able to be a part of the day where they vow forever to their best friends. I get to laugh with these couples, cry with these couples, and most importantly help carry their EXTREMELY heavy dresses around at times (which I equally love).
This year I was able to help shoot a few amazing weddings, and was able to create a styled shoot of my own by a GORGEOUS creek with another sweet photographer who really should have been a model to begin with! Lets just say, it has been a dream!
Every wedding day is different, but that is what makes my job so exciting! I get to capture the little details like the desert bars and the flowers, but I also get to capture the big parts like a dad giving his little girl away and two people becoming one.
So, before I start crying myself, I will just share with you some of my favorites from 2016. I cannot wait to see what 2017 has in store for my beautiful brides!
