If you follow my work at all on this blog, you probably know that Phil and I started off this year doing a few bridal shows in Phoenix. We met all sorts of awesome future brides and grooms, and had a great time at each show! We met Leigh and Josh when they came together to the Phoenix Bridal Show at the Phoenician Resort in February. I knew immediately when I met both of them that I wanted to photograph them, and I'm so glad that I got the chance to spend the afternoon hanging out in the desert, sharing restaurant suggestions (you KNOW I'm full of them), and capturing some of their easy laughter and devotion to each other.
Josh is in dental school right now, which brought him and Leigh out here to Arizona all the way from Virginia!! Moving almost completely across the country is such a huge step, but when you do it with the right partner, it can be an amazing adventure!! I had so much fun falling right back into my southern Missouri accent because Josh and Leigh's southern charms were workin' on me :-).
Josh and Leigh, you guys had the most easy laughter between you of any two people I know. I ADORED spending the afternoon laughing with the two of you!! I hope these photos always remind you guys of this exciting time in your lives, and the beautiful desert that you get to share it in!! Get ready, people, these are GORGEOUS!!
Okay, how lucky am I getting with all my brides having ABSOLUTELY GORGEOUS EYES... Leigh, seriously, I did nothing to enhance the color on these... they are that fierce in real life! I can't wait to see how they look on your wedding day!! WOW!!
I love canoodling and dancing in the desert... You really can't beat it!
Now Arizona is just trying to show off to all your Virginia friends ;-). DANG it was a beautiful evening!!
I made a note to ask Leigh about this nail color beacuse it is perfection!! That ring is pretty nice too, Josh ;-).
This laughter!! If the food of love is laughter, than these two are going to have a LOT LOT LOT of it ;-).
Seriously, how much do you guys love these photos? Me... 100 percent!! I hope you love them just as much as I do, Leigh and Josh!! Can't wait to hang out with you two again soon!
