Oh Weddings

May 3, 2014

This past week we did two amazingly beautiful weddings! The first one was on Saturday (the day it rained and snowed sideways) but boy, it was a great celebration! The bride and groom took the weather as it was and made the absolute best of it. Since I’m new to the business with Trisha, I really enjoyed seeing how a wedding truly unfolds in front of us. You certainly have to be on your toes at every point of the day!

Even from the first wedding (on Saturday) to the second wedding (on Tuesday), I was starting to realize where I needed to be, what photographs i needed to take, and how I could help Trisha in anyway that I could. We traveled to Phoenix on Tuesday, where we drove up to this beautiful Old Mill House, excited to see what type of scenery we had to work with. And let me tell you, it was gorgeous. The backyard was lush with green grass, tall trees, and sweet little twinkle lights that were scattered over the ceremony area. 

I can see that each and every wedding we photograph are all different. It gives us something to look forward to every time we book a gig. We can use our creativity in every way possible and go wild with it! Look out for the photographs from these lovely weddings—we’ll be posting them soon! 

Happy Days—
