Leigh and Josh make each other laugh. That is the most obvious thing about them. When I shot their engagement session last year, they were laughing together the entire time, and it was such a joy. I was so excited for their wedding in Sedona, and it definitely did not disappoint. Leigh is a girl after my own heart, because it was super important to her that her dogs be involved in her wedding. If you know me, you know that my dog had a tux and was hanging out on the side of the dance floor for my entire wedding reception. This dog-loving couple was not about to leave their babies at home, and I'm so glad that we were able to capture their entire family during their wedding day! Agave of Sedona is BEAUTIFUL, and the warmth in the flowers and decor perfectly set off the classic desert vibe. This is a great one, guys! Enjoy!
As I was hanging out with the girls, Phil headed over to Sedona Rough Hotel to hang with the guys. They had a lot of time to hang out, and as you can see, the smile did not leave Josh's face the entire time. I love seeing such a happy man getting ready to go meet his love!
When Leigh and I talked about her wedding photos, the one photo she asked me to be sure I got was of her and Copper, her nine year old Boxer. How sweet and special that Copper was able to be there. When Leigh, Copper, and her dad walked down the aisle together, it was so special... in fact, when the officiant asked "Who gives this woman away?", Leigh's dad said "Her mother, I, and Copper"... it was such a sweet thing, and meant so much to this dog lover!!
The sun, the moon, the red rocks formed over millions of years... Everyone showed up for this ceremony ;-).
There was not a dry eye in the house... Josh's mom kills me in this photo... every single person was so happy for these two!
Got to get that formal wedding party photo in. Just to impress you other photographers, there was no photoshop used in this photo... Leigh's brother was getting the dogs' attention by jumping all around me, and it worked out perfectly!
Shut up, these two are just so cute together! Phil and I had been location scouting for a few days before the wedding, and found this beautiful spot with trees, cactus, a little bit of snow still on the ground, and some red-rock views. We always arrive for a wedding a few days early so that we have lots of time to find places for portraits. Definitely was worth it, these shots of Mr. And Mrs. are gorgeous!!
Want to play a fun game? The next two photos were taken around the same time, one by Phil and one my me... want to guess whose is whose?
Phil's was on top, mine was on bottom... I kind of think he won this one, but I'm still saying I like my shot, too ;-).
It's party time!! Wow, I adore how much these two tore up that dance floor!!
I had the best time in Sedona, surrounded by such majestic beauty and the love of these two and their family and friends. Thank you for trusting me and Phil to capture your day. it was such an awesome wedding!!
