Erik and Jaclyn met September of 2011 at a restaurant she was working at. They had both been at the same college (Western Michigan University) for four years and had mutual friends, but somehow had never met before. Erik came in to the restaurant with two of his friends on a Friday night. He stopped Jaclyn one of the times that she was walking by his table and they started talking. As Erik was cashing out, Jaclyn wrote her name and phone number on a napkin and had another co-worker give it to him (she was too nervous). The next morning, Jaclyn woke up to a text from Erik. He was asking her to go tailgating with him and his friends that same day. Jaclyn somehow had the day off and agreed. The next day, jaclyn introduced him to Boo and Bella (her dogs). They have been together since! Jaclyn and Erik will be getting married on March 9, 2018 and I am so looking forward to capturing their big day for them.

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…
