We had been looking forward to Amity and Manny’s wedding for a long time. Their day was filled with quite a few of our favorite things; great light, jimmy choo, dogs, the Biltmore, and of course a very in love bride and groom.

Her little nephew had quite the knack with the camera… his composition was pretty impressive these were just a few of his images.

She has the most contagious laugh…

Their first look was really sweet… Amity was smiling and laughing the whole day… made for fun candids

If you don’t know this already I am obsessed with dogs and look at these babies!! They were great subjects!

Their nephew was so stinkin’ cute!

The bowl above was the inspiration for their invitation design.

LOVED their cake!

Oh how a Royal Palms wedding makes our hearts sing! This wedding fell on my birthday and I can think of NO OTHER place I would have rather been than with these two love birds. From start to finish this wedding was intimate and romantic. Christina and Aaron are from Oklahoma so most of our interaction was via email or over the phone so we were really looking forward to meeting them in person. The Royal Palms of course provides the perfect backdrop for a romantic and elegant affair… which their wedding was indeed. We love when life allows for us to meet people Christina and Aaron and we are so grateful that half way across the country there are couples like this that find us/our work and allow us the opportunity to photograph their special day! We wish Christina and Aaron a beautiful future and hope that in your future visits to Arizona our paths will cross again!

Her beautiful flowers were done by Gina with Fiori Floral… her work speaks for itself but WOWZERS I think we took at least 100 photos of just her bouquet!

Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Maass!!!


Chelsey and Taylor are friends of mine from ASU, we were all members of the Leadership Scholarship Program¬†(LSP) at ASU together. In fact, it’s the same program I met my husband in! Chelsey and Taylor’s day was in Sedona at Tlaqupaque, it was a beautiful cloudy Arizona day with blue skies and just enough rain to cool things down a bit. The whole bridal party was so much fun, Kacey and I had such a great time prowling around “the dona” with them. Tlaquepaque provided the most beautiful backdrops, literally every nook and cranny of that place was picturesque and perfect! Not to mention the bride, groom and their whole bridal party were a group of stunners… so as I was creating this blog I had chosen so many photos I almost doubled what we normally do, so with a little ¬†narrowing down these are (what I like to think) the creme de la creme. HUGE HUGE congratulations to these two steamy lovebirds we couldn’t be more happy for the two of you and we are so thankful we could celebrate more LSP alongside you!

Her pretty necklace is from Anthropologie (I knew someone would ask)

The bride and her family and friends helped to prepare all of the floral arrangements… pretty stinkin’ impressive!

gotta love Arizona skies!

Those LSPers sure do know how to party

The evening came to a close in a fountain… oh and a getaway motorcycle. Congratulations Mr. and Mrs. Taylor and Chelsey Barnwell!
