Rainy Tucson Temple Wedding | Ambria + Andrew

A few months ago I received a surprise phone call. I can't say I wasn't hoping for it. I was really hoping for it, and I'm so happy it came! I completely lucked out and these two asked me to photograph their day even though I'm currently living all the way over in St. Louis. I was "hoping" they would call because Andrew is my cousin and Ambria is my high school best friend's little sister. First of all, I was so happy for them, and second of all, there was no way I was going to be missing that party, with so many people I love!

So we made plans and chatted about what our strategy was going to be for getting our photos done in the hot July Arizona heat. But a few days before the wedding, we found out Tucson weather had different plans for us. Flood warnings and all day rain! Not exactly photographer friendly weather, but we made it work! And actually, it kind of turned out perfect! It cooled the temperatures down enough to where it was enjoyable to be outside, and we just grabbed a few umbrellas, used every ounce of googling skills I could muster, and found a covered place to take bride and groom photos at. Everyone went with the flow, and I just love so much the magic that came from dealing with the storm. Side note, I also hear that it's extra good luck to get married on a rainy Arizona day, just saying. :)

It was just so beautifully imperfectly perfect. I loved it. 

So happy for you two, Ambria and Andrew! Love you both! Best wishes to you guys on your marriage. Hope you love the pics! <3

The sweetest first look embrace.

Loved that we got to use Ambria's darling umbrella for a few shots. She's an artist and just an all around sunshiny, beautiful person. This umbrella gives me all the Ambria vibes :)
They were married in the Tucson LDS temple. So happy the rain let up for just a bit and gave us the perfect little window of umbrella free picture time.

Imagine having all these amazing women as "sisters". <3

They did not hold back, haha :)
I'm not crying, you're crying. I just loved this moment so much. Sweetest daddy daughter dance.
I couldn't help myself. Leaving them a little love for their guestbook from their photographer cousin. <3
And the Silver City photo had to happen! I feel like I hit the jackpot getting to grow up with all these wonderful people! Love you all! 

Congratulations again Ambria and Andrew! Thanks again for both helping me come and being so wonderful with the best attitudes through the rain and craziness. Love ya!
