Vintage Book Inspired Wedding at The Newton | Shana + Bryan | Arizona Wedding Photographer

A miracle happened on Saturday! All year I have been so nervous for this wedding, not for any reason other than last year at this time it was quite literally 120 degrees outside! Oh, we had backup plans, in case we were to face the firey heat of Arizona, but we lucked out! It rained the night before and we had clouds all day! Pretty sure we were in the 80's during portraits! And oh did the portraits turn out so pretty!!

It's a bit of a challenge to shoot portraits in the middle of the city, but we found an alleyway with so many hidden gems! I just couldn't get enough of these two in front of them! You'll see just how much variety of backgrounds we got in just a short amount of portrait time!

Now to get to the real highlight of the day! These two!! Right from the moment I met them, I knew they were the exact type of couple I love to book.  Their love story and the way you could tell they just adored each other just spoke to my heart.

I loved the theme Shana chose for her wedding--focused on books. From the book-like invitation, books at their engagement session, books that were the favors/seating charts for the guests, and the decor, it was amazing how it all came together so perfectly!

Huge congrats to the new Mr. and Mrs. Lusk! Thank you again for asking me to be a part of your day!

 Shana had custom perfume made for her wedding! Isn't it pretty?! Read the bottle! "Mrs. Lusk"!

 Their first look!

 They wanted to stop in at the record shop down the road for a couple pictures!

 Darling bridesmaids! I told them to run down the alley! You can't help but smile big when you run!

Most joyful just married photo!

 Her handmade book details were amazing!
 And just in case the day wasn't special enough, it was also their 10 year anniversary!

Such a beautiful unique day!

Romantic Villa Siena Wedding | Cristina + Vince | Gilbert Wedding Photographer

From the moment I met these two in the little coffee shop down the street, and watched as they told their love story together, I began looking forward to this day!! Then we did their engagement session, and their beautiful sweet affection for each other shone through on every capture! It was then that I really knew their wedding would be a dream to do! And it was! Every little detail was planned to absolute perfection, and while surrounded by many loving friends and family, these two officially became husband and wife! It was such an absolutely beautiful day! So many tears of joy and love shed for this beautiful pair! Congratulations Cristina and Vince! Thank you for allowing me to be a part of your day! I hope you love this little peek into their wedding day!

Reading a letter from Vince! They each wrote a special letter for each other to read before the ceremony!

The funnest bridesmaids!

Cristina and her dad did a first look before the ceremony!

All the bridesmaid's picked out their own dresses, and they nailed it! I LOVE this look!

Still dreaming of this wedding! Such a beautiful, tender, and joy filled day!!
