Fun, Fun, Fun with Brady and Kim!

 When I met with Brady and Kim in regards to their spring wedding I had so much fun with them.  So happy when they asked me to photograph their special day!!  Brady and Kim wanted to take the their engagement pictures in Fountain Hills.  We had so much fun, when you spend time with Brady and Kim you can't help but laugh!!

 They had requested some picture with their team jerseys, this is when their true personality's came out.  Love them!

I am so looking forward to their wedding in May 2012, hanging with Brady, Kim and their families!!

Jesse and Alex at Willow Lake in Prescott

 I love this picture of Alex.  She got teary eyed when she walk into the reception room at the Hassayampa Inn in Prescott.  It was all coming together, her perfect wedding day!
 This is Willow Lake in Prescott.  I've never seen anything like it before.  This first time that I was at Willow Lake was about a year ago to visit my aunt.  My first thought was I would love to photograph a couple there.  Sure enough about two days Later Alex called and booked me to shoot her wedding to Jesse there!! 

I did not meet Alex and Jesse until the wedding day.  In my phone conversations with Alex I felt like we were old friends.  When I saw Alex getting ready I knew I was lucky to be her wedding photographer!  She is such a kind, warm lady.  Then it was time for the first look, my first time meeting Jesse, no wonder they are together!  Jesse has a kind spirit just like Alex.  Now that day at the lake was cold, brrr about 37 out with scattered clouds.  Amazingly enough when it was time for the ceremony to start the sun beamed out of the clouds to warm everyone up just enough.  It was perfect.  Thank you Jesse and Alex for allowing me to photograph this very special long awaited wedding day!!  I truly felt blessed to be there with you.

~Jeremy and Vanessa Wed on the Beach of San Diego~

 Where do I start?  Jeremy and Vanessa were married on the beach at The La Jolla Shores in San Diego.  It was a beautiful wedding for a beautiful couple.  I was super excited when Vanessa and Jeremy contacted me to shoot their wedding.  You see Vanessa is the daughter of a very special lady, Tammy McMurry!  Tammy was my son's preschool teacher.  Tammy is also very good friends with another special lady Nancy also a preschool teacher also one of my dearest friends.  Which meant Nancy and I were able to travel together to San Diego for the wedding, which made the trip that much more awesome! 

       Look at Jeremy's face as he see's his lovely bride for the first time walking to him! 
 The beach that Jeremy and Vanessa got married at is a public beach, so anyone passing by or hanging at the beach that day was able to witness the "I do's".

 Jeremy and Vanessa wanted to do a shoot the day after on the beach.  We had so much fun! Amazingly enough the water was not to cold for them to get into, yes they got all wet in the ocean!! 

 Nancy who is also known as my Creative Prop and Set Designer brought some fun props for us to us on the beach.  Love this old camera!

 Yes, Nancy brought this blue chair and said she did not mind if I put the chair in the ocean, so I did!!

I really felt lucky to be a part of this beautiful wedding.  Jeremy and Vanessa you have something special and you feel it when you are around the two of you.  Reminds me of the song "Whatever it is" by the Zac Brown Band.  You two have "whatever it is"!  Thank you for allowing me to be a witness!!
