Fall Scottsdale Wedding | Ashley + Casey

This day for Ashley + Casey has been long awaited and we were all so excited for it to finally be here! Ashley thought of everything for their Fall Scottsdale Wedding and not only just the beautiful details, but making sure her family and friends had the best experience. And they were so organized that it made my job a breeze :) Their Fall Scottsdale Wedding was at the perfect venue, McCormick Ranch Golf Club and they started their day at The Scottsdale Resort at McCormick Ranch Golf Club and it is such a beautiful pairing.

As soon as I met Ashley + Casey they reminded me so much of myself and Andy. You can read more about that and their engagement session here! We quickly became friends and I loved hearing all about their big day...which is probably why is was so exciting when they big day came :) The vibe in the girl’s room was filled with so much fun and laughter and that continued throughout the rest of the day all the way to the reception! One of my favorite things I do at weddings is my digital photo booth. It’s the perfect way to get crazy, funny, and ridiculous photos of your guests that you typically wouldn’t get on the dance floor or any other time in the day! And if you want to really impress your guests have a late night snack…seriously it’s a game changer! We had pizza at our wedding and Ashley + Casey got Portillo’s for theirs and the guests loved it.

Thank you to the new Mr. & Mrs. for allowing me to be a part of your day and to the excellent team of vendors that made such an incredible Fall Scottsdale Wedding!

L'Auberge de Sedona Wedding Photos | Kelsey + Mike

This was my first time taking L'Auberge de Sedona Wedding Photos and it was absolutely magical! I'm always amazing that we can drive two hour north and get such a different scenery than the desert. Don't get me wrong I love the desert, but who doesn't like to see beautiful leaves starting to change colors?! 

Mike also works in the wedding industry and the last time I saw him he told me they had a surprise to tell me about...guys I love love love surprises! I love the idea behind them and then seeing the surprise-ee's reaction (yes I think I made that work up ;) Their surprised happened during the ceremony and I seriously think it was the coolest thing I've even been a part of. Leading up to it I was so nervous, so I can't imagine how Mike + Kelsey felt during their L'Auberge de Sedona ceremony. It was right after they said their vows and exchanged rings they had one more promise to each other: To love and care for their beautiful baby girl that will be arriving in February of 2018! They announced to everyone except their parents (who already knew) that they were pregnant!!!! How cool is that?! All of the wedding party and guests were in total shock and it was so awesome :) I think I'd call that a huge success! 

After the ceremony it was filled with lots of hugs, congratulation, questions and a few tears. So beautiful to photograph and I'm so happy I got to be a part of it. We headed down to the L'Auberge de Sedona Creek to take some more wedding photos and then got the party started! And it was a magical night from start to finish <3

Elegant Scottsdale Wedding | Carley + Bryan

Carley + Bryan are so incredibly kind, thoughtful, laid back and gorgeous! When I met with them they just radiated happiness and when they smiled it was absolutely contagious. I could not wait for their elegant Scottsdale wedding! 

The got married at McCormick Ranch Golf Club in Scottsdale, Arizona and it was a perfect Arizona day :) They wanted a simple yet elegant day and that's exactly what they got. The staff at McCormick Ranch and Kate Ryan Design did an amazing job at executing their vision. 

Carley was stunning and I knew Bryan was going to die when he saw her at their first look. I think they giggled the whole time and it was such a sweet moment to be a part of. Their wedding party consisted of their siblings and their close friend Adam, who was their officiant. They made my job too easy and just had the best time with each other! 

I've said it many times and I'll say it again. I love when officiants know the couples on a personal basis because they are able to tell stories (usually funny and embarrassing) and make it an intimate experience. Now I've heard many vows photographing weddings and I am always amazed at how beautiful each couple speaks about each other. These two definitely complete one another and I'm pretty sure had all the guests in tears. 

The decor was incredibly, the toasts were meaningful, the food was delicious and the dance floor was full. I don't think you could have asked for a better elegant Scottsdale wedding! Thank you so much to Carley + Bryan for letting me photograph your love!
