Christy + Bryce had a stunning Sheraton Cresent Hotel Wedding and I was so honored to be able to capture their love. Christy is a stunning bride and just radiated beauty and Bryce is a handsome groom that fit perfect along her side. When I got to the hotel I noticed two things: #1 an incredible view of the city and sunset that was going to turn into magic during sunset and #2 all of Christy's details were stunning. It made my photographer heart just exploded :) She was going for an elegant and classic look of black and white with a bit of gold sparkle and she definitely nailed it. Coupled with some of her mother's pieces from her wedding day it was all so beautiful and I love adding sentimental touches like that.
One of my favorite things about a first look it just seeing pure love beam from my couples as they see each other for the first time on their wedding day. It gives me butterflies every time :) In less than a month I will get to feel that same emotion and I cannot wait <3 After the first look we kicked off their wedding party photos and this group was a blast! They had me cracking up the entire time :)
Both of them work in the emergency medical field, so it was only appropriate that their officiant (who is a retired from the police force) wore a police vest to make sure no one got out of hand ;) They said exchanged I do's, sealed it with a kiss and then were cuffed together to really solidify the fact that they were together forever now.
We had been getting some amazing sunsets lately, so I knew Arizona wouldn't disappoint us and oh my gosh I could have photographed them their forever! They are such naturals in front of the camera and rocked out their portrait session :) We finally got the party started and they ended the night celebrating with their closest family and friends.
Thank you Mr. & Mrs. Rodriquez for trusting me to capture your day. It was incredible and I'm lucky to be able to witness your love :)
