Maricopa Manor, Phoenix Wedding – |Drew + Samantha|

arizona photographerOne reason I love destination weddings so much is that I get to shoot in new spots and I get so inspired! Although this wasn’t a technical destination wedding as the couple is local to Phoenix, I had to travel so I count it for me! 🙂 They took me to Roosevelt Row in downtown Phoenix which was a photography heaven! The could not have been more perfect. Weather was mild, the people were amazing. I had so much getting to know Samantha over the years as she was a bridesmaid in a past wedding! It was an incredible introduction to my first (and hopefully not last!) Arizona wedding!

An Oceanside Elopement – |Rachael + Tymon|

You may recognize these two from their rainy day engagement session in March! And you will get to see them again after I photograph their larger ceremony an reception later this year! But these two chose to become husband and wife in April with the help of the awesome Reverend Tuttle and his Military Monday’s program. He offers FREE elopements to active duty military every Monday! How beautiful is his heart? Other vendors also donate their time, myself included. The fantastic Desiree with PennyBlooms Floral created Rachael’s stunning bouquet! He is a sneak peek at their intimate ceremony and a few photos around the property of Oceanside Marina Suites after!
