The bride… the groom… and crazy aunt Zelma. Read about it all right here.

Barbie shoes, a ground trampoline, and a giggling bride… Erin & Alex’s wedding was great!

0006

One of the first things I noticed about Erin (other than those eyes!) was her sense of style… and there was no shortage of that style at this wedding!  From her lacy vintage dress to her pink Barbie heels… she created a beautiful wedding that represented her perfectly.  Alex wasn’t left out though… his style is soon to be showcased since he’s a graphic designer and he’s going to be designing their wedding album!

The wedding location itself was unique.  It was held at the home of one of Alex’s clients and it couldn’t have been a better location for them.  It was very elegant but it still had a personal home feel… the perfect combination!

And did we mention, he jumps higher than anyone we’ve ever met?!  Just kidding, there was a trampoline built into the ground in the back yard… awesome for fun pictures. :-)  We should’ve worked harder to convince the bride to try it out!

This is a shot I try to get at every wedding.  I just love the flowing dress layers combined with some fab wedding shoes!  So when I saw her shoes, I knew this wedding had to be the one where I perfected the look I was going for.  And what do you know, it worked!

Erin was one of the smiliest brides we’ve ever had.:-)Every time she tried to do a serious picture, she’d bust up laughing instead!  So we figured the best way to get a serious one, would be with her head down.  It did the trick and we now love this one… it’s such a classic pic.  If it wasn’t for the strapless dress, it would be hard to guess what year it was taken and I love that! Vintage is definitely a favorite of both Scottie and I!

Another way to get a picture of Erin not laughing was to have her kiss Alex… apparently she takes her kissing seriously!;-)

We loved working with this couple and we had a great time hanging out with them on one of the biggest days of their lives! Congratulations you guys!

Kelly & Scott’s Big Day!

Here’s a word problem for you…. if 2 people want to get married and 1 person lives in Chicago (where the temperature is 49 Degrees Fahrenheit)and 1 person lives in New York (where the temperature is about 40 Degree s Fahrenheit) and they want to get married somewhere that is around 75 Degrees Fahrenheit, where should they go?  Apparently the answer for Kelly and Scott was Fountain Hills, AZ.  Lucky for us, they chose to get married at Eagle Mountain Golf Club which is one of our favorite places to shoot!  They have unbelievable views of the city, rolling grassy hills, and it’s far enough away from the busy city that it’s quiet and the skies are beautiful…. this is where we get our best sunset shots!  Plus Nic, the guy who plans all the weddings there really knows what he’s doing and we get better pictures because he helps the couple plan the wedding around the photography time. (You can see what we’re talking about if you click to see the rest of Kelly & Scott’s wedding photos). 

 

This is probably my favorite picture we’ve ever taken!!  We have others that are similar, but this one is just perfect!  We were so glad Kelly wore that cathedral veil…. very dramatic!

The groomsmen in this wedding were really fun.  Check out the pictures we took of them before the wedding where they were just hanging out and cracking up the whole time!  I could barely hold my camera steady because they were making me laugh too hard!  But by the looks of this picture, you can tell they know the ceremony is serious business.

You can kind of see that amazing Eagle Mountainview they have for ceremonies in this pic.  It was definitely fantabulous (if that’s not a real word, it will be someday).

0027

So it turns out that the groomsmen weren’t the only fun ones in the bunch.  They seriously had some of the coolest friends.  Most of them flew all the way out here for this and you could tell they were all very close to the couple.  There was a strong atmosphere of love there.  Oh yeah, and man did they know how to have a good time as well!!  Ahem, did I mention that we are available for out of state weddings too? (hint hint to all you fun guests)!;-)0053

Thanks, Kelly and Scott, for letting us be a part of your day.  We loved it!!  Click to see all of Kelly and Scott’s wedding pictures.

My Little Brother is a grown-up, married man now!

So my little brother Paul snagged himself a hottie and married her!  Scottie and I were both in the wedding (in Tempe, Arizona)… and Scottie was the photographer! Well one of them, there’s no way this would’ve worked (without being super tacky anyways) without the help of our good friend Tim Boyd (you can see more of his photos at www.studio-b-photo.com).

One of the best parts about the wedding was that our family all worked together to pull it off.  My dad performed the ceremony, her dad played the music, Scottie was the photographer (and groomsman), my other brother and I were both in the wedding party, her uncle was the DJ, and our extended family served as everything from decorators to flower petal pick-er-upers).  It was quite a family affair and it was SOOO fun!  Scottie and I are so used to working at weddings, we hardly ever get to just kick back and party it up a little bit.  This time, after all the pics were done we got to dance the night away with everyone!

So here’s the story told through pictures….

Here’s Anna, the beautiful bride (I told you she’s a hottie!)

Man, I wish I could be as cool as him!

I love how happy they look!  And that’s my blurry father in the far background (sorry dad!)

The mother/son dance was awesome, look at my mom’s expression… so cute!

The best cake war I’ve ever seen, it went on for quite awhile too! (the guy on the left is my other brother, Ross).

0044

“You should’ve seen the other guy!”  (he had cake in his eye, so I think that means she won).

0045

My favorite part about the picture is the (apparently) hilarious joke going on in the background. And I LOVE how hard Ross is laughing!

0048

I just put this picture in to re-inforce how much fun it was….not to rub it in to those who weren’t there or anything!;-)
