Aaron and Amanda - Wedding Day

This was my first time shooting a wedding at the Windmill Winery and I must say that I can hardly wait for my next opportunity! Such a beautiful backdrop with plenty of variety but if I am completely honest... this couple could be photographed in a dump and come out with lovely pictures:) These two were just too cute! The day began with Amanda being beautified and I absolutely love how she chose to wear her hair!

I decided that my favorite part of the preparation time is when the flowers arrive. It's the first time the bride gets to see the final outcome (and I get to see what they chose:) and I have yet to see a bride disappointed in her bouquet.

A few more touches here and there and it was time to put on the gorgeous dress!

Such a beautiful bride!

The groom came prepared with shades and converse, love it!

Let me tell ya, these guys gave me a run for my money! They were definitely a rowdy bunch but that makes it fun:)

I fell in love with this combination immediately!

Delicate sweetness.

A big old bug decided to join the party when the girls were getting ready for their group shot! Made for a fun picture:)

And then the guests arrived!

Seeing his bride for the first time... best moment of the day!

Aaron and Amanda exchanged vows inside the barn; smart choice in an Arizona August!

They did it! This is just one of many portraits taken at this moment if you look up and down the aisle:)

And then it was time to whisk the newlyweds away for their portraits.


This is my favorite shot of the day, stunning!

The guests enjoyed some hors d'oeuvres out on the grounds as the barn was being prepared for a night of celebration!

Love these two shots of the father/daughter dance and the newlyweds first dance.

Hope the best for you two as you begin your new life together! It was a joy to be a part of your big day!
