Anthony and Kristin's Gorgeous Wedding at Blackstone, AZ
This is Blackstone Country Club and my first time shooting a wedding there. It is a very beautiful venue which was the perfect location for this beautiful couple Anthony and Kristin. From the minute meeting with Anthony and Kristin until I said good night to them at their wedding I so enjoyed working with this couple. They are so in love and so sweet together. It makes me happy when I witness the love someone has for someone else, that is what you see when you watch Anthony look at Kristin. What a fun wedding, they danced all night. When shooting their engagement pictures they really had me stepping out of the creative box and once again while shooting their wedding. I have to give a shout out to the staff at Blackstone, they were so wonderful to work with and really took good care of Anthony and Kristin. Another shout out to How Appropriate flowers. They made sure everything was perfect and were there all night. Of course I need to mention my assistant Misti, everything is better when Misti is there to help.
Got You Covered did a great job of having the dance floor full of energy all night long to the very end!
When talking with Kristin about a week before the wedding she mentioned they were doing Chinese lanterns. I've never heard of this tradition, something new to look forward to. Thank you so much Anthony and Kristin for allowing me to photograph your wedding. You two are truly a beautiful couple inside and out and I feel blessed to have been able to work with you.
This wedding was amazing! Everything about it was perfect. Hailey and Austin were married at the Oakmont in Flagstaff. Yes, it rained almost all the way up until the ceremony started but then it stopped and there was this beautiful cloud cover followed by a peak a boo sun. Hailey and Austins details were simple, with purple and boots! Hailey's bouquet was lavender, just lavender, I mean how cool is that. Lets talk about the reception for just a second, it was like being at Denim and Diamonds. Everyone knew how to country dance, everyone. There were so many cute dresses and boots dancing on the dance floor. Hailey and Austin had a fun crowd and I think everyone stayed until the very end. A good start for this sweet couple that met through a mutual friend while Austin was attending NAU. Wishing Hailey and Austin a lifetime of adventure and love!
My first wedding of 2014 was with Nicole and Chad at Encanto Park Clubhouse. This wedding was so sweet with fabulous details. I mean really fabulous details, from the location, to the bridesmaids attire and reception details. If you follow my blog regularly you know I usually do not post to many detail shots, I always photograph them, I just do not post them. For this post I am posting more then average because they were just so fun. Thank you so much Nicole and Chad for allowing me to capture your sweet wedding. It was such a great way to start 2014.
Do you know this year many of my friends children will be getting married. Does that make me older or wiser! I prefer wiser and lets ad more experienced. I have been photographing weddings for a very long time, long time, ha! I will say honestly, I mean with all honestly I still love it, if not more then when I started. Still growing, experimenting, learning. This lovely couple is Ashley and Keafer. Ashley was about 5 when I first met her. Her parents were my first neighbors when I moved to Arizona in 1992. We became fast friends, Ashley's parents Don and Martie and I instantly. I loved living next door to them. Ashley use to babysit my boys too. I remember feeling so honored to photograph Ashley's senior pictures, man she is a beauty! Now I get to photograph her wedding in December. I really enjoyed getting to know Keafer while photographing their engagement pictures. They seem to complement each other perfectly.
I would like to share with you Ashley and Kea…
