Jennifer and Nick’s Royal Palms Resort wedding

Royal Palms Resort and Spa wedding photography

Jennifer and Nick’s wedding was a day 20 years in the making. It was intimate celebration in the Garden of Love at the Royal Palms Resort & Spa. I love their ceremony spot, framed with pink bougainvilleas and Camelback Mountain above. The reception was one of the prettiest I have seen. One long family style table covered in flowers and candles in an orange grove under the stars! Congratulations Jennifer and Nick, wishing you another happy 20 years- and beyond!

Danielle and Erik’s Desert Botanical Garden in bloom wedding

Desert Botanical Garden Phoenix photographer

The Desert Botanical Garden was in bloom and the yellow of the Palo Verde trees made the garden even that much more breathtaking for Danielle and Erik’s wedding. Cat lovers, Erik was showing his love with cats both on his bow tie as well as kitty cuff links. My favorite moment while Danielle was getting ready was how emotional her niece got seeing Danielle put on her veil! The ceremony, officiated by Danielle’s sister and Erik’s brother was personal and gorgeous under a canopy of yellow. The party was so much fun with two pianos for live music! Congratulations Danielle and Erik!

Aly and Kyle’s Grayhawk Golf Club wedding

Grayhawk Golf Club wedding photography

Aly and Kyle’s wedding was emotional, musical and more than anything, family centered. The love that Aly and Kyle have for their parents and siblings was evident in all aspects of the celebration and it was beautiful how these two families joined together. The Jewish wedding was held at Grayhawk Gold Club in north Scottsdale under a gorgeous chuppah with the McDowell mountains in the background. During the reception Aly’s dad lead all of the guests in a sing along which was really fun. He also ended the night on stage with the band! Congratulation Aly and Kyle!

A little over a week before their elopement Robyn contacted me about photographing her elopement. I was thrilled to be available on such short notice! It was an intimate gathering with a small handful of family at The Ashley Castle. Under a bright and warm morning in March Robyn and Garrett tied the knot. It was really special to be a part of such a cozy ceremony. Congratulations Robyn and Garrett!
